A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light

Ever wish you could custom-order your dance performance like a double skinny latte with no foam? KT Niehoff and her Lingo Dance troupe have read your mind and created A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light, a three-month performance art piece, the first installment of which treats 30 lucky winners to a personalized one-on-one performance, choreographed based on email correspondence between winner and dancer, then staged in a public place (March 1-31). Chance bystanders are welcome to watch, but it might feel like voyeurism, since performer and patron are asked to “exchange their personal histories and desires.” Okay then. But for those who prefer the safety of an audience, Niehoff will tonight deploy her dancers among the Calders at this very public SAM Next event. Her company then takes residence at ACT’s Central Heating Lab for more traditional shows (April 22-May 15). MARGARET FRIEDMAN
