Tonight at TBA: Brooklyn Imports, Dance, Dean & Britta

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 12:59 PM

With 13 Most Beautiful... Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, Luna's Dean Warham (former frontman of Galaxie 500) and Britta Philips provide a soundtrack to 13 of Andy Warhol's screen tests—filmed portraits of Factory visitors including Edie Sedgwick and Nico. The soundtrack includes a few Velvet Underground covers and reprisals of Luna songs; Dean and Britta will perform it live in front of a projection of Warhol's portraits.

Also tonight, a few promising dance options: The Offsite Dance project, featuring a site-specific performance created in industrial Southeast by three Japanese dancers; and A Crack in Everything, from the well-regarded Seattle company zoe|juniper.

And finally, at the Works, Catch, a grabbag of short-form programming co-curated by fake preacher Andrew Dinwiddie:

Hey Brooklyn, thanks for sharing Catch with us. In return, you can open as many Stumptown Coffee locations as you see fit. While most collectives claim great range (but seldom live up to it), Catch is a truly eclectic collection of dance, video, theater, and just about everything else in between. A bi-monthly staple of the Brooklyn art scene for eight years running, this “rough and ready” crew will include choreographer Luciana Achugar, art collective Oregon Painting Society, and the hypnotic dance of Woolly Mammoth Comes to Dinner.

As always, PICA has your tickets 'n' info.
