Big Dance Theater Company Takes Gary's Music on the Road

New York City's Big Dance Theater Company, the award-winning modern dance troupe led by choreographer Annie-B Parsons and Paul Lazar, are featuring several of Gary's recorded works in their new international touring project Plan B.

The ensemble chose one of Gary's Chinese pop instrumental arrangements from his "Edge of Heaven" album, and Gary's cover of Kraftwerk's "Autobahn", for their new project which debuts Jan. 8-11th at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, and then plays the Bonn Theater Festival June 15-20th in Germany. (Gary is also making a live appearance at the Bonn Kunstmuseum on Feb. 15th with his Chinese pop project to commemorate an exhibition of 2000 years of Chinese art being held there). Plan B will also come to NYC's Dance Theater Workshop in the fall of 2004.

Also, Big Dance Theater's production of Antigone, which was a big critical and audience success at DTW in NYC last winter, and features Gary's recording of "Songstress on the Edge of Heaven", will be at the Kampnagel Festival in Germany from Jan. 23-29th, Chicago's Classic Stage Company Feb. 27-29th, and Classic Stage Co. in NYC April 28-May 23rd.
