A story of two extraordinary women


October 13, 2011

HIGHLAND LAKE, NY — The NACL Theatre will present “The Baker and Dunham Project” on Sunday, October 16 at 4 p.m.

A multi-media dance theater collaboration between theater director Mimi McGurl, choreographer/dancer Maria Bauman and dancer Dawn Robinson, the work centers on the first meeting in 1948 between Josephine Baker, the iconic star of stage and film, who chose Paris as her home, and Katherine Dunham, modern dancer, anthropologist and one of America’s most influential choreographers. It features Maria Bauman as Katherine Dunham and dancer Dawn Robinson as Josephine Baker. A French soup will be served after the performance, and the audience is invited to break bread with the performers.

NACL is located at 110 Highland Lake Rd. Tickets cost $10-$20, pay what you can. Email nacl@nacl.org or call 845/557-0694.
