Baby's First Show

After 2.5 years of consistent appearances in local festivals and split bills, Cambridge-based dance company Ruckus Dance will make their evening-length debut with Baby’s First Show at the Dance Complex. Directed by dance-maker and “anti-choreographer” Michael Figueroa, the group works, duets, and solos performed in Baby will deal with artifice, the end of the world, loneliness, physical prowess, and honesty. 

Four works will be presented: perpetual loneliness (featuring music by Beth Anderson); objects lay, people lie (premiere); ways of rendering a man blind; and one collaboration with a rotating artist, with smaller improvisational events occurring in between each dance.

Through intentionally exhausting and perplexing dances, Ruckus Dance works to open up performance spaces that both provoke conversation and bewilder the viewer, driving audiences to ask questions about the logic of what is happening before them. Come and be ready to take part.
