Choreographer David Parker’s “Mouthful of Shoes” brims with comic enthusiasm and brings together a blend of tap, body percussion, vaudeville, ballet and contemporary dance. Toe shoes, tap shoes, Velcro suits are all part of an evening filled with rhythm and fun. The music is by Morton Feldman, Wolfgang Mozart, Steve Reich, Dean Rosenthal, Igor Stravinsky.
“The Bang Group may seem divine in their deft, virtuosic footwork, but they are human in their relationships.” – Erin Bomboy, The Dance Enthusiast
“In “Mouthful of Shoes,” versatile dancers play a suite of thorny modernist scores (Morton Feldman’s “For John Cage,” Stravinsky’s “Piano Rag Music,” new works by Dean Rosenthal) with their feet and other body parts. It’s the choreographer David Parker’s latest venture in translating rhythms and dissonances into human behavior: tender emotions and low-comic shtick.” The New Yorker
