About once a year, Chapel Hill choreographer Killian E. Manning/No Forwarding Address creates and produces a sprawly new work of dance-theater. This year’s, to be performed as part of Manbites Dog Theater’s Other Voices Series, promises to be highly entertaining. 1*9*5*6 Degrees of Separation marks the year of Manning birth with what will undoubtedly be comic scenes-that-might-have-been.
I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Derrick Ivey as Khrushchev (if you don’t know who that is, you definitely need this faux history lesson) and J Evarts—slim and dark in daily life—as the voluptuous blonde Marilyn Monroe.
