Freudian Slips and Silent Screams
  • June 6, 2012 - 5:30pm

Witness a living embodiment of the concepts behind portraiture and figurative art in a “happening” series of miniature dances and scenes designed to be performed in silence. CD/FW company members will explore the idea of the very act of creating a portrait or modeling for one. Drawing ideas from art history, photography, and personal histories, the dancers will bring their personal interpretations to this long-standing tradition of the “portrait” as a form of human record-keeping and storytelling through art. Audience members are welcome to come and go during the duration of the performance.

Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth are celebrating modern dance and contemporary dance during the Modern Dance Festival. For more information visit

Admission is free.

FINAL WEEKEND: The Museum and KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS will be open Friday, January 20 and Saturday, January 21 from 10 am until 8 pm, and Sunday, January 22 from 10 am until 5 pm.
