Raja Feather Kelly I the feath3r theory is a staple in DanceNow productions. For the 2016 Dance-mopolitan weekend, November 4 – 5 at Joe’s Pub, the feath3r theory was joined by Chelsea Murphy and Magda San Milan, plus B.S. Movement: Saina Branfman and Bryan Strimpel. Not surprisingly, the evening had a theme, “National Intimacy Month,” and because of it, Kelly made sure everyone, on and off stage, was intimately involved. Audience members had to take an “Intimacy Quiz,” and later, with Kelly, share their results before the show began. The performers are mostly paired (couples), and everyone either talked about or showed their impression on intimacy. Patrons at the intimate Joe’s Pub are always close to the action on stage. There was really funny text from Murphy and Milan, powerful dancing from the rock stars of the evening Branfman and Strimpel, and in-between from Kelly and company came introspective words, daring challenges and a show-stopping text driven solo from Kelly himself. The performers from the feath3r theory are Sara Gurevich, Amy Gernux, Beth Graczyk, Rachel Pritzlaff, Collin Ranf and Aaron Moses Robin.
