"ELIMINATION DANCING
Danceoff!'s mock contests- and a couple of real ones- knocked the socks off an uptown crowd in February. This week (April 5 and 6 at 8 and 10pm), Terry Dean Bartlett and Katie Workum bring a fresh crop of full-contact dance comedians to PS122 (150 1st Avenue, 212-477-5288), featuring the curators, Philly's Headlong Dance Theater, some female lizards, Leigh Garrett, and much more." - Elizabeth Zimmer

And a "PICK" in the listings as well. Yee Haw!

CIRQUE DU SOIREE!

When Terry Dean Bartlett isn’t flying through the air and crash landing for Elizabeth Streb/Ringside, and Katie Workum isn’t playing ice hockey, the two organize their lively performance revue, Danceoff! Postmodern dance rubs elbows with film, comedy, and ballroom in a new installment at P.S.122 (April 5-6).

Tricia Brouk struts and claps in Annie-B Parsons’s work-in-progress Short Ride Out; Weena Pauly twirls on her knees in “Ta”; Leigh Garrett dances Cha Cha Championship alone, because her alleged partner’s too shy to come onstage; and actual ballroom champions, tanned and toned Carolina Orlovsky and Felipe Telona, do a scorching mambo.

In a film made with Paul Sullivan, Miss Penelope’s School of Stillness, Amy Larimer stars as a demented dance teacher, who pelts students Clare Byrne and Holly Handman with pickles whenever they move. Mousy Amy Smith and portly Jeb Kreager of Philadelphia’s Headlong Dance Theater cavort as a suburban couple, re-living their hippie past to songs by Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.

In Dance for a Girl, Bartlett in a tux woos and wins ersatz cellist Workum with a series of exhausting back flips that crash onto a floor-mat. And downtown rockers The Isotoners – including two cute, befuddled go-go boys in skivvies – play musical interludes, including, appropriately, “Flashdance.”

Danceoff!

Danceoff!
P.S.122
Closed

DANCEOFF!—the ingenious fun fest curated by Terry Dean Bartlett and Katie Workum—was, once again, a smash. Carolina Orlovsky and Felipe Telona's sweeping Tango and Mambo showed why they're world champs—timing, attitude, not to mention Orlovsky's fantabulous getups. Leigh Garrett longed to outdo them in Cha Cha Championship, but was hilariously stymied. In Hippie Elegy, Headlong Dance Theater's Amy Smith and Jeb Kreager ventured an anti-tango—two schlubs now lifted unto transcendence, now staggered by folk rock tunes. Bartlett and Workum's obsessive Dance for a Girl (Unnamed) harked back to Bartlett's death-defying work with Streb. Completing the bill: Short Ride Out, a meticulous Annie-B Parson solo for Tricia Brouk, Garrett's Conversations: a and b, Workum's Stay. Stuck., Weena Pauly's frightening Ta, and Amy Larimer and Paul Sullivan's hair-raising mockumentary Miss Penelope's School of Stillness.
