Hamiltonian Artists and Bettmann Dances co-presented the company for one night of performances on Thursday, October 29th, 2009. The company performed two sets of a new 30 minute multi-media installation performance titled ‘The Fun House’. Tickets for the 7 pm show were $5.00 Tickets for the 8pm show were $20, which included a post-performance reception with the artists.
The Fun House drew from All Good Men, Bettmann Dances’ recent dance-theater adaptation of a Dylan Thomas film-script.
The Examiner wrote about All Good Men that, “Bettmann has created a work of art that establishes his ability to mine gold out of our literary vaults and craft his discoveries into complex and beautiful pieces.”
Set to classical and contemporary music, and recorded speeches, The Fun House at Hamiltonian offered a vivid, street-level, non-narrative exploration of how we influence on another.
The Fun House was performed at the Hamiltonian Gallery, located at 1353 U St. NW, Washington, D.C., a dynamic new space in the heart of the growing Washington DC contemporary art district. The gallery focuses on innovative works by emerging and mid-career artists. In conjunction with Hamiltonian Artists, the gallery promotes new artists, aiding in their further development.
