Museum Workout
North Carolina Museum of Art
Saturday, June 3-Monday, June 5 | 9:00am, 10:15am, 1:30pm, and 3:00pm
Co-presented by ADF and the North Carolina Museum of Art, Museum Workout is an experiential piece that blends a choreographed physical workout with a guided museum tour. Led by Monica Bill Barnes, her long-time dancing partner Anna Bass, and the company’s Creative Producing Director Robbie Saenz de Viteri, audiences perform choreographed movement as they travel to works of art selected by collaborator Maira Kalman. The first workout of each day and all workouts on Monday, June 5, will take place while the Museum is closed to the public. Limited to 15 participants!

Happy Hour
PSI Theatre at Durham Arts Council
Tuesday, June 6-Friday, June 9 | 6:30pm
Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass play two utterly ubiquitous male characters. But as female performers, they can never become these characters. In their persistent failure to become these icons, we can see something more special—two individuals desperate to wrest new meaning from our most familiar ideas of ourselves. Hosted by Robbie Saenz de Viteri, Happy Hour is a hybrid, part office party, part dance show, and part karaoke event. The happy hour continues after each performance at Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub. Join Monica and Anna for a cool one!

The presentation of Happy Hour is made possible by PNC.
