Choreographer

May/June, a self-described
"experimental traditionalist" band
from Flint, have had an interesting
few months. Between rocking all-
-gesvenues and Green Party rallies,
edvorting with Ralph Nader (while
s;4pping him a copy of their debut
ailii, The Sec is Filled With Hor-
Th&eFish), they're coming to the
lind Pig on Thursday. Following a
g-iat the Heidelburg, this is their
-.u-cnd Ann Arbor appearance in
s tlin a week.
Mimbers of the band have played
egther in various incarnations
'petthe last eight years, forming

May/June in 1998. Their lyrics are
laden with tradition, heartbreak,
longing, and the nuances of every-
day life and the "American experi-
ence" - kind
of like the

rock, blues, folk and even waltz.
Decked out in period clothing, one
is never sure whether May/June is
dressing up just for the show or if
they are actually ghosts from a
bygone era.
Don't be allow yourself to be
misled, should the words "tradition"
and "banjos" lead you to believe
- that May/June sounds like the
candy-asses over at the Lilith fair.
Hell, no. This is foot-stomping,
knee slapping, rollicking coal-min-
ing music.
When they say their songs
describe the root of the American
experience, they certainly must
realize that an essential part of the

American experience is rock n' roll
- and May/June rocks out accord-
ingly.
Staples of their live set include
songs like "Stealing Chaplin,"
which recounts the true story of two
enterprising mechanics who dug up
Charlie Chaplin's body and held it
for ransom. Rugged individualism,
laissez-faire trade, brash entrepre-
neurship - how much more Ameri-
can can you get? May/June has also
has the pop sensibility to recognize
that "inside every Prince song is a
country-western song" and proceed
to cover "Kiss" in that fashion.
Yell out a polite request, and they
just might play it for you.

For the Daily
If you have ever wondered what
makes an artist tick, then attending
Maureen Flem-
ing's ' lecture
demonstration
might be the
Maureen place for you.
Fleming, an
Fleming American
Dance Building choreographer,
will discussing
her approach to
choreography
and giving
excerpts of her
work.
Fleming,
who is current-
ly in residence
at Western Michigan University,
will be discussing "The Changing
Role of Art in Society." She was
trained initially in classical ballet,
but then moved to butoh. Butoh is a
Japanese dance form created in
rejection of western ballet and clas-
sical Noh and Kabuki styles in
post-war Hiroshima. Her current
artistic direction has combined the
movements of both of these back-
grounds into her work.
Fleming incorporates slides and
videos from the creative process in

her performances, with the help of
lighting and visual designer Chris
Odo. Videos and films, by Jeff
Bush, have been a way to accom-
modate the larger theater houses
involved with touring international-
ly.
On the subject of art creating
change in society, Fleming sees the
potential there. "I feel that through
recent performances in Russia,
Columbia, South America,
Venezuela, Iceland, France, Italy,
Germany and Japan I feel that I
have been given the opportunities
to break boundaries in healing
wounds of terrorism and wat
through my art. I feel my worlk
offers the hope of transformatioti
rather than the never ending cycid
of retaliation."
The movements used by Flemin&
are intended to heal, rather than
destroy and she hopes that dancers
and choreographers will use thit
idea in their own work. She is
known for her flexibility and bodil
control.
Her inspiration comes from the
quest for transformation, and in her
work uses her body to exhibit the
transformation.
Along with her lecture, Nfs.
Fleming will be demonstrating
excerpts from her most recent work
"Eros and Psyche."
