Exploding onto our local landscape after performing in Israel (and beyond) with the highly acclaimed Batsheva Dance Company, dancer/choreographer Danielle Agami is planting roots for her Gaga movement-based Ate9 dANCEcOMPANY here in Los Angeles.

The dance maker, who also spends time as a world ambassador for BDC director Ohad Naharin's newly created movement language, will present "Sally meets Stu" at Cafe Club Fais Do-Do for only three performances on Friday and Saturday nights.

Previously presented in Seattle, San Francisco and Vancouver, the evening-length work is performed by 12 dancers with impressive training and performance backgrounds—Julliard, CalArts, UCLA, Cornish College, the Boston Conservancy and others. With live narration of text written by Nadav Heyman, the creator tells us that "'Sally meets Stu' is not really about a Sally and a Stu, they are only there to show and tell us something about us... opening questions for discussion without using even one word... so, lean back and enjoy the unpredictable."

The Seattle Weekly said of the show, "The dancing will knock you flat!"
