What is the appropriate response to war? Something as chaotic and dehumanizing as the organized destruction of human life beggars the logical, rational mind. And so in choreographer/dancer Michael Mizerany's Kruel Summer, two men in the middle of a war respond with movement. Discarding the verbal and the rational, Mizerany explores the viscera of war with the controlled explosions of the well-tuned body, depicting madness and terror through motion and stillness, touch and distance. Mizerany conducted a series of interviews with active soldiers to uncover the truth of the modern combat experience, so Kruel Summer is recommended for mature audiences. The native St. Louisan brings his provocative dance piece to the Center of Creative Arts (524 Trinity Avenue, University City) for one performance only, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $18, and reservations can be made by calling 619-861-5286 or by visiting
