Smart Bets: The Decent Women of Calle 58

Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre and White Dog Dance Project International are set to stage The Decent Women of Calle 58, "Inspired by the exhibit by social anthropologist Christian Rasmussen and his 22 interviews of sex servers." Artistic director Susan Collard "wanted to focus on the humanity of these women’s stories, putting them in intimate settings in a house: kitchen, bedroom, patio, exploring the issues that are important to them," says press for the production. Accompanying music was composed by Yucatecan artist Alejandro Basulto. For mature audiences. Friday-Sunday, June 7-9. 8 p.m., $15/$17. Photo by Giles Collard
