Big Muddy Dance Company

Staff Pick

Do you know how difficult it is to express an emotion purely through dance? Think about that, and maybe even imagine how ridiculous you'd look if you tried your hardest — and were 100 percent serious — about conveying a feeling to an audience by busting a move. The fleet-footed dancers at Big Muddy essentially do what a painter does with a canvas, or a songwriter does with an instrument and voice. Only they do it by dancing. Though there's an experimental visual experience involved, at the end of the day, it's pure expression vis-à-vis body contortion. Since 2010, Big Muddy has etched its mark into the respected ranks of the St. Louis arts community by showcasing the region's most talented dancers. And exciting times abound at Big Muddy: 2015 will mark its first year at the Marcelle, a new theater space in Grand Center. There it will surely thrive among its arts-oriented neighbors. And in turn, our city will too. 3310 Samuel Shepard Drive, St. Louis, 63103. 314-338-4058, www.thebigmuddydanceco.org.
