FuerzaBruta, Friday Performance

How can it already be Sunday night? The weekends are much too short! These past two days involved what felt like non-stop dancing from Friday to Sunday evening. Dancing in all settings. Theatre. Broadway Studio. Club. Classroom Studio. My apartment – does that count? ;) It feels fantastic to move.

I studied a good deal of modern dance in college. And then stopped once I graduated and moved to NYC. I didn’t realize just how much I missed dancing until a few months ago. We’re bringing it all baacck.

Photos from Friday’s performance of FuerzaBruta with Robyn, Diana, and Lee Anne.

The interactive show involved a good deal of standing, moving, and dancing.

Theater meets acrobatics. With awesome music (thanks for the CD, Diana! :)

The show concludes with a little surprise involving a good deal of water. We left very happy and soaking wet. Stomachs craving something greasy and satisfying, we strolled our dripping selves in the cold down to Artichoke. Pizza time.

One Sicilian pie to go…back to my apartment, conveniently around the corner. Thank you, Lee Anne for venturing back out to pick up the pie!

Oh! Oh man, have you guys see the movie, A Christmas Story? You must have! Anyways, remember the leg lamp? Well. They HAVE THE LAMP at Artichoke. How crazy is that. Robyn and Diana each caught a separate shot of me in utter awe. The lamp is. So. Awesome.

We stuffed our faces. Fiddled with my hat collection. And did, you know, stuff.

More food to follow soon…

    I am SO jealous that you got to see Fuerza Bruta. I saw that group perform De La Guarda in 2002 and have been praying for them to come out with something new ever since. I can’t wait!

    Hi Kathy – I love the way you’re looking up at that lamp like you’re having a religious experience. Gotta watch out though, you don’t want to bump into it… it is fra-gee-lay… ;o)

    I’ve stayed away from Artichoke due to all the hype. I tried a regular slice once and it was eh and not really worth any hype. And the signature artichoke pie just looked gross and too heavy. BUT! The Sicilian pie looks like the real deal. I love me some Adrienne’s Grandma pies and think they’re the ones to beat in NYC. Would you put Artichokes Sicilian pie up there ahead of Adrienne’s?
