Modern-dance choreographer and former punk-rock singer Jody Oberfelder has spent the past 20 years perfecting her creative, witty dances, for which she was named Outstanding Choreographer at last year’s FringeNYC Festival. In honor of her 20th anniversary, the Jody Oberfelder Dance Projects premieres Heads or Tales, a wild retrospective comprised of excerpts from her many highly praised, colorful works. Joining her company of eight dancers will be more than 35 guest performers, dancing, singing, or appearing in one of her films. The entertaining evening includes everything from Head First, her 1986 crash-helmet piece, to the fantastical 2002 The Story Thus Far, based on fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm.
