"Her astute talent for creating deadpan gestures for two sad-sack women who stumble into Dean martin's lugubrious world marks her as a savvy comedian. Her Suddenly Summer Somewhere brimmed with pathos and laughter, a rare gift in dance."
-Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian
Suddenly Summer Somewhere
Simultaneously hilarious and painful, Suddenly Summer Somewhere explores how the passage of time affects the collective lives of two people. Remaining side by side through most of the work the performers embody two quirky, fallible, and utterly human personalities. The dance unfolds among a simple domestic set featuring Barnes' own dining room table and is accompanied by the live recordings of the Rat Pack in concert.
