Friday Night Family Fun Presents The Owen/Cox Dance Group

h1>Friday Night Family Fun hosts The Owen/Cox Dance Group for a special discussion of their latest show on Friday, March 30, 2012 at 6:30 p.m., at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.  

The Owen/Cox Dance Group artistic directors Jennifer Owen and Brad Cox, and NEA Fellow Nate Fors present and demonstrate the creative process behind Bottom of the Big Top, a work inspired by early twentieth-century circus music.

The Owen/Cox Dance Group is an ensemble of professional dancers and musicians dedicated to performing new works. The group's mission is to create new music and dance collaborations, present high-quality contemporary dance performances with live music, and to engage as wide an audience as possible through affordable live performance, education, and outreach programs.

With this mission in mind, founders Owen and Cox bring together some of Kansas City's most talented artists in a variety of genres to perform contemporary dance with live music. With diverse backgrounds ranging from the Bolshoi Ballet and the Leningrad Chamber Orchestra to Alvin Ailey and Dave Brubeck, these dancers and musicians form a highly skilled and multi-faceted corps. The results speak for themselves: fresh and vibrant new works that are classical in form, but contemporary in expression.

The presentation is appropriate for all ages.

Admission is free. RSVP online or call 816.701.3407.
