The Dancer Films Live Event
The Dancer Films Live Event
featuring Andrea Weber and Jane Ira Bloom
Recommended for grades 3–12

Mondavi Center School Matinee Program

Jules Feiffer’s beloved cartoon character the Dancer is an icon of optimism and earnestness. In 2011 the Dancer was brought to life in a collection of very short films directed by Judy Dennis. For this special school matinee, Feiffer will create new Dancer cartoons, with Andrea Weber (Merce Cunningham Dance Company) choreographing and composer/saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom making music in the moment to interpret Feiffer’s drawings. With audience involvement on stage, these live moments of creativity celebrate the creative spirit and inspire a new generation with the bracing, topical and rapturous world of Feiffer.
