Barbara Gail Montero and Jules Salomone to Perform in “The Missing Shade of You: A Dance Dialog Between L.A. Paul & Marcel Proust”

Professor Barbara Gail Montero and PhD student Jules Salomone will appear in “an evening of movement, music, and the spoken word with a post-performance panel discussion” on March 4th and 5th at The Tank NYC.

The event, co-produced by Montero and collaborators Theresa Duhon,
Patra Jongjitirat, and Gregory Kollarus, was made possible by a grant of over $5000 awarded to Montero by the American Society for Aesthetics.

Each performance consists of five movements, each thematically linked to the works of author Marcel Proust and/or philosopher L.A. Paul. Montero choreographed three of these movements and dances in four; Salomone performs spoken word in two.

The March 4th performance will be followed by a panel featuring philosophers Elizabeth Camp (Rutgers) and Nick Riggle (U of San Diego), while the panel on March 5th will feature Professor of Dance Kyle Bukhari (Sarah Lawrence) in conversation with philosopher Lydia Goehr (Columbia).

Additional details about the performances, including a full cast list and detailed descriptions of the themes motivating each of the five movements, can be found on the Logos Dance Collective website.
