Dancing with rhythm and balance while belting out notes on cue is a hell of a lot harder than people like Janet Jackson and Madonna make it look. (Even Britney knows a thing or two about this.) But the multifaceted Iva Bittová outranks them all in terms of difficultydancing, belting out high soprano trills and alto warbles, and playing the violin onstage. In Out of Place, she heads an evening designed to challenge the customary relationships between dancers and musicians, with music that ranges from classical to avant-garde and modern dance. Seven members of the Wendy Osserman Dance Company lend their voices and perform veteran New York choreographer Ossermans powerfully expressive movements as the dynamic Bittová does her thing.
