Gehmacher/Mumbling Fish, Maybe Forever


Newmark Theatre (map) Downtown
Sept. 4-5, 8:30 p.m. 2009


What happens when two seasoned dance professionals get together and decide to tackle the complexities of modern romance? A holy matrimony of dance, music, and gut-wrenching emotional outpourings. Maybe Forever documents the tragedy of love in present times, painting a sad picture of a crumbling relationship. Watching Meg Stuart, a veteran dancer and former member of the Randy Warshaw Dance Company, and Philipp Gehmacher, whose choreography has been popping up in theaters and festivals all across Europe, is about as comfortable as watching your parents’ marriage slowly go down the toilet, but no less powerful. What really brings Maybe Forever together, though, is the musical accompaniment from singer/songwriter Niko Hafkenscheid, a mixture of softly strummed guitar and barely there vocals. TPK
