No capitalization, please

DANCE

November 06, 1997|By Judith Green

The women of in good company are so egalitarian that they refuse to capitalize the name of their dance collective. They include Sandra Lacy, who is on the faculty of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Beth Davis, Pam Matthews and Mary Williford-Shade.

At the Dance Place this weekend, they'll perform an assortment of solos and duets: repertory that fits the group's compact identity.

The program includes "Gone By," an homage to Brahms' "Hungarian Dances" by Amy Spencer; "Two by Eartha," a solo for Lacy by Irene Hultman to songs by the sultry Eartha Kitt; "Lo and Behold" by Michael Foley, a solo for Williford-Shade; Jose Luis Bustamante's "Rain" and Mark Dendy's "Rock," a pair of duets for Lacy and Williford-Shade; and "Edge" by Boris Willis, for Matthews.

The best-known piece is "Recovering What We've Lost," an elegy for Davis' father, originally made in 1989 for Liz Lerman Dance Exchange.

in good company performs at 8 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Dance Place, 3225 Eighth St. N.E., Washington. (For Metro users, it's a short walk from the Brookland-CUA stop on the red line. Call for directions.) Tickets are $12, $10 for college students and seniors, $5 children and high-school students. Call 202-269-1600.
