Blurring the Line Between Creativity and Chaos

Mash Up 1:
TOY SOLDIERS + CRAIG VAN HISE + MIRO

The Miro Dance Theatre Mash-Up Series is an experiment combining live music and dance- prepared fresh and served raw. Each experiment has Miro in the studio with a rock band and a composer, and on the fourth day we emerge to share the results for a brave audience who will experience a never to be repeated performance. You don’t want to miss these one-of-a-kind events.

The series begins in conjunction with the soulful, garage rock, roots sound of Toy Soldiers.Bruce Warren of WXPN says, “[Toy Soldiers] bring to mind Shangri-La era Kinks, Nashville Skyline-era Dylan, Bright Eyes and the Black Keys, The Coasters and Carl Perkins.” Plus, the dramatic flair of Craig Van Hise (producer of Man Man’s Six Demon Bag) is being thrown into the mix.

“[Miro does] better than most at combining visuals and movement to make a third, poetically expressive form.” – Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

Please join us for an evening of the unexpected, unadulterated and completely unusual.
