No, I'm not talking about Subarus or some Amiga group. AWD is to DANCE what DEMOLITION DERBY is to SPORT. Compare
and contrast! These guys rock the cool checkit, gotta say.
AWD is this totally weird and spacey athleto-fireo-danceo-musicko group that
performs for a lot of Burning Man events, among other things. They are REAL
Like, start off with a bunch of speed-freak modern-primitive musicians with
crazy instruments like hand saws and steel drums making BIG NOISE. Then add on
top of that three skirling chanteuses wandering manically around a stage
or theater or WHATEVER. Then on top of THAT you gotta add another 6 or 8
DANCERS who jump and climb on each other and every surface in the performance
space, including the ceiling, and then spit and set fire and generally cause
major catastrophes of epic proportions.
It's a really crazed visual and sonic experience. Not to mention that the
performers all have ROCKED BODS, which it's worth the price of admission just
to see them squirm around, I gotta say. Man.
They're doing an extended theater run here in the City right now that's worth
checking out. Pigdog'll be there; will you?
