A blossom of color, energy and motion, "like endlessly proliferating forces of cosmic energy," says the New York Times. The dances of Nai-Ni Chen fuse the dynamic freedom of American modern dance with the grace and splendor of Asian art. The company's productions take the audience beyond cultural boundaries to where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline.

Choreographer/dancer Nai-Ni Chen is an artist whose work defies categorization, as she is continually working on new ideas from influences around the world, and her mesmerizing and dramatic contemporary choreography has gained increasing recognition among domestic and international presenters and festivals.

"The Talk of the Town" Original Musical Comedy Revue

Murchison Lane Auditorium, Babcock Fine Arts Center
Ticket Information | Tickets go on sale March 1st

Selected as one of the Best of 2004 by Curtain Up!, and voted one of the top-10 plays of 2004 by Performing Arts Insider, this original musical comedy revue tells the story of the "ten year lunch" that was the Algonquin Roundtable, a gathering of the wittiest literary lights of the 1920s, including Dorothy Parker, George S. Kaufman and Alexander Woollcott. Loaded with their unforgettable quips, critiques and put-downs, Talk of the Town traces the legendary skirmishes (both professional and romantic) across that famous round table.

Contains some adult language — recommended for mature audiences.
