Opening No. 88: Nick Cave’s “Heard • DAM”: Nick Cave – the renowned Chicago textiles artist, not the renowned Australian rocker – presented a large-scale, multimedia public performance in collaboration with about 50 dancers as part of “Untitled,” the Denver Art Museum’s late-night, mixed-media series staged on the final Friday of every month. Cave presented a large-scale, multimedia public performance on June 28 that featured collaborations with three respected local dance companies (3rd Law, Wonderbound and Cleo Parker Robinson) as well as 15 individual amateur dancers who auditioned from the community. (One was Buntport Theater’s own Mitch Slevc). Cave’s team gave each company movement assignments they developed with his creative team over the preceding week, capped at the final rehearsal by the insertion of Cave’s signature, sometimes full-bodied “Soundsuit” costumes, which included several human-sized horses. Think textiles meets modern dance. The show, which sold out in 15 minutes, was a variation on “Heard • New York,” which Cave staged at New York’s Grand Central Terminal in March. Friday night’s multi-sensory explosion corresponded with the opening of Cave’s massive Denver Art Museum exhibit, titled “Nick Cave: Sojourn,” running through Sept. 22. Info: 720-865-5000 or www.denverartmuseum.org. Cave will re-create the live dance performance July 19 in Civic Center Park as part of Denver’s Biennial of the Americas.
