NOBODY SAY ANYTHING – LIVE.

Dancing Monkey’s Nathaniel Schmidt is about present his latest musical endeavour called Nobody Say Anything. The group is comprised of Nathaniel with Chris Dadge, Mark, Limacher, and Nate Waters. They play music like you’ve maybe never heard but maybe you have – but not from them.

Thanks to a Small Experiments Grant from CADA (Calgary Arts Development), they were able to put this show together and experiment with new sounds and new ways discovering sounds. It would be great if you could join them at this live concert event in fulfillment of the the grant. There will be beer and a few other special surprises.

We Begin.

During our residency at Theatre Junction in Calgary for their TJLAB sessions we invited filmmaker Kevin Dong to join us in the space and capture some moments of the Monkeys at work.

#webeginwithanemptystudio is a short documentary to introduce ourselves at Dancing Monkey Laboratories. We are interested in researching, exploring, discovering and deconstructing what performance can be by creating new works that speak to diverse audiences.

We’re in the Lab… Dancing.
