NYC-based choreographer Catherine Galasso will bring two modern dance works by the late choreographer Andy de Groat to the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. Both works, Get Wreck and Fan Dance are important dances from the 1970s. They require a local cast of interested and experienced movers to perform with Galasso and company. The two dances will be performed on a program that includes Galasso’s original work, notes on de groat.
