A Modern Night at the Folly 

When: Sat., Feb. 18, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $15-$20
Since 1985, City in Motion Dance Theater has been a constant in the local arts community, promoting its professional company and dance school as a center for innovation in the Midwest. "To me, modern dance is so appealing to watch because there is a lot of diversity in interpretations of choreography or ideas. There is an artistry involved in it that I feel pulls the audience in and keeps them guessing," says Crystal Robins, production director of A Modern Night at the Folly. The event features 11 area choreographers and acts, including a Björk-themed multimedia production ("Unravel" by Kimberly Holloway) and a dance summoning a tragic accident ("Triangle Factory Fire" by Maggie Osgood Nicholls). "As far as types of pieces being presented this year, it really has a different feel compared to years past," Robins says. "You'll see the best Kansas City has to offer." The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15-$20 and can be purchased at the Folly box office (300 West 12th Street, 816-474-4444) or through Ticketmaster. For information, see cityinmotion.org.
