Molodi 1CES at Frostburg State University will present the electrifying step dancers of Molodi Live in its next On the EDGE series performance. The show will take place on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 8:15 p.m. in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall of FSU’s Lane University Center.

Using only their bodies as instruments, Molodi combines collegiate stepping, tap, gumboots, beatbox and poetry with guerrilla theatre. Interactive rhythms and crowd participation bridge the gap between the artists and the audience, who become essential participants in the performance. According to The Villager, “The soulful and energetically intense performance ... leaves the audiences in awe of their abilities to blend the traditional percussive dance forms.”

The On the EDGE series is an exciting club series presented as a collaboration between CES at FSU and FSU Student Activities. The series features cutting-edge performers who stretch the boundaries of their art forms. Patrons enjoy informal table seating, comfortable couch and armchair seating, and food and beverage options.

On the EDGE tickets are $15 and may be ordered by calling 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137 or by visiting CES’ webpage at http://ces.frostburg.edu.
