Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

On the cutting edge of the dance world, it's not just about movement anymore, although the physical voyage through space is still an integral part. In Dance the Orange, a new performance created by Monica Dionysiou and Marc Devine of the the Umbrella Collective, the movement is suspended in a web of theatricality and multimedia, with elements of video projection, installation art and opera.

A modern take on the myth of Orpheus in the underworld, Dance the Orange draws on a heady brew of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke, the ecstatic imagery of William Blake and music by Daniel Johnston. See the vibrant work, co-produced with Control Group Productions and Naropa University, beginning tonight at 8 p.m. at work | space and continuing nightly through January 13.

Tickets, $10 to $12, are available in advance through Brown Paper Tickets; for details go to the website or call 804-822-2650.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
