MamLuft&Co. Dance is an Aronoff Center for the Arts Resident Company based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati’s CityBeat named the company of modern dancers the “Best Dance Company Pushing the Envelope” in 2012′s Best in Cincinnati Awards. Celebrating its sixth season, MamLuft&Co. Dance premieres Speak at the Jarson-Kaplan Theater on February 23, 2013.

A new dance theatre work, Speak uses movement (along with sound and video) to explore the difficulties, joys, and means of communication. From cultural barriers to misunderstandings, and double entendre to body language, communication’s effectiveness ranges in failures to successes.

In Speak, MamLuft&Co. Dance asks what it truly is to understand and to be understood.

The evening will also include a re-setting of a classic, mid-1970s work in its original costumes: “Epitaphs” by Jefferson James of Contemporary Dance Theater (celebrating its 40th anniversary).

MamLuft&Co. Dance’s Speak is supported by the generosity of community contributions to the ArtsWave Campaign. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. Support also came in part from the Cincinnati Arts Association / Greater Cincinnati Foundation Rental Subsidy and individual donors.
