Dance Initiative kicks off this weekend of dance with a Happy Hour Reception and the screening of the internationally acclaimed documentary Mr. Gaga. Come to The Launchpad at 6p.m. for libations, snacks, and House Demos by the company members of the Staycee Pearl Dance Project, a taste of Denver’s Control Group Productions and the trailer of local outdoor dance film project Letter To Congress: A WILD Sanity. The film, Mr. Gaga, begins at 7p.m. and documents the artistic life of Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company. Naharin is regarded as one of the most important choreographers in the world. This spirited and insightful documentary will introduce you to a man with great artistic integrity and an extraordinary vision. Filmed over a period of eight years, director Tomer Heymann mixes intimate rehearsal footage with an extensive unseen archive and breathtaking dance sequences. This story of an artistic genius who redefined the language of modern dance is guaranteed to leave you skipping. $5 at the door.
