Well Versed

A night of poetry, dance, art and music


To dance is to feel — your feet pushing against the ground, your arms reaching, stretching, your muscles and breath working together. But to dance is also to observe what's happening around you, to be in tune with the music, to use all of your senses together in harmony to present movement — to present art in motion. Sometimes dance is a response to a mood or an emotion, and in the case of Heaven Sense, a multimedia performance/installation taking place tonight at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; 314-535-4660), dancing complements the exhibition I Remember Heaven: Jim Hodges and Andy Warhol. Twenty dancers, as coordinated by Draza Jansky, will be interspersed throughout the museum, and they not only will be responding to the artworks, but Todd Mosby provides an original score and Sally Van Doren brings the poetry; her work The Sense Series will be read as part of the concert. Heaven Sense begins at 7 p.m., and admission costs $5; a cash bar will be available. For more information visit
