Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum: Forum Lounge: Monica Bill Barnes, “Suddenly Summer Somewhere”

04/05/2012 5:00 PM


“Suddenly Summer Somewhere” is a duet which follows the relationship between two performers, Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, who embody quirky, fallible, and familiar characters. This whimsical dance theater piece is set to live recordings of the Rat Pack and blends deadpan comedy, space-devouring choreography, and awkwardly strenuous partnering. Barnes’ work slips between comedy and tragedy as the performers struggle along their journey together.


Monica Bill Barnes & Co. will be performing at Center Stage Theater at 7 pm sharp! Starting at 5 pm, join us for a pre-performance happy hour at CAF–featuring La Tour wine, music, and an opportunity to peruse the exhibition Fights from Wonder. ADMISSION IS FREE
