The Three Bonnies
Six seasoned performers deliver a dance-fueled rumination on relationships to songs by Bonnie Raitt, whose "Let's Get Back to Talking About Fundamentals" pretty much sums up creator Denise Armstead's themes: You gotta have love and true grit, and look to the horses for wisdom. Armstead, a performer of febrile intensity, packs a lot of homespun philosophy and kick-butt dancing into an hour. The movement often reflects the lyricism and sensitivity of horse behavior, which we witness in some terrific film footage as dancers circle one another like skittish colts or, after a bit of wrangling and high-flying partnering, settle into some hard-won love on the range.
