With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

This contemporary dance performance was underwhelming. While some of the dance moves were very unique and interesting, the flat performance, repetition, and uninteresting music made the long performance tedious. There didn't appear to be any change in mood- such as angst to joy, just mostly angst. My friend and I agreed in our assessment, however the performance received a standing ovation - so many people must have seen something we didn't.....

This is a company to see if you love contemporary dance. Outstanding performance, interesting choreography and fantastic technique. More often than not, dance at the Barclay is well worth seeing. Intimate venue, reasonably priced seats.
Spellbound Contemporary Ballet was founded in 1994 and is lead by artistic director, Mauro Astolfi. The company’s unique vocabulary of expression is rooted in poetic, emotive, and dynamic bodies creating shifting geometries through space with equal amounts of athleticism and elegance. Spellbound has charmed audiences throughout the world with performances at dance festivals in Italy, Spain, Croatia, Serbia, Germany, Austria, Belarus, France and Thailand.
