Columbus is not too far away to drive to see an evening of performance art that eases into modern dance. This weekend I’ll be going to see Anthro(pop)ology, a variety show that has invited three different groups to critique and consider the positive, negative and ambiguous effects of pop culture in society. In particular, I’ll be there to see cocoloupedance’s click here for slideshow or 6-8 character limit, with choreographer Coco Loupe. On her blog, Loupe writes about the process of creating the piece: “Suddenly we had it. A string of solos. A parade of singularities. A gallery of personalities. A slideshow on a stage. All linked together and contextualized by the old prophetess who’s been taken out of the real action and has to ‘dance’ her way around the web.” By “web” there, she is referring to the internet, which is central to the work's form, as she and her dancers blogged their way through the past six months of choreography. Anthro(pop)ology is presented at the Columbus Dance Theatre, 592 E. Main St. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Buy tickets for $10 by clicking on "store" at www.amerifluff.com.
