The Flair of Fred Astaire

PRESENTED BY EIGHTH & EIGHT CREATIVE SPACES
150 min., includes 15-minute intermission

FRED ASTAIRE—the greatest of all movie dancers—takes the spotlight in this show presented by classic film scholar MICHAEL VAN DEN BOS. Illustrated with a rich bounty of film clips, Michael explores the distinctive diversity and invigorating inventiveness of Fred Astaire’s considerable dance work in classic Hollywood movies. Also highlighted is Astaire as a vocalist, favoured by many famous songwriters of his era as the best interpreter of their tunes, who introduced more songs that became standards than any other 20th-century musical performer. So, what do you say… shall we dance?
