Dearly Beloved: A Union, Out of Wedlock, choreographer Andrew Pearson offers what he describes as a "CerePhony." Preceded by a cocktail hour and followed by a reception, the evening's new danceworks are set amid large-scale interactive art installations by Mary Margaret Groves and backed by live music. Known as a provocative choreographer and an imaginative presenter, Pearson's chosen venue is a commercial wedding chapel, an inherently a theatrical space where brides and grooms revel in their moment as star performers. Where the wedding party often provides dramatic tension, Pearson gets help from recorded and live performances from a half dozen notables including Tiffany Sweat. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and top ticket price promises bridal-suite access.
