Missouri Contemporary Ballet "Thirst" review by Karen Pojmann
In its seventh season, the Missouri Contemporary Ballet, Columbia's
own not-for-profit professional dance company, has established itself as
a vibrant and limber cultural force. In a community of such modest
size, this longevity is no small feat. Yes, we Columbians love our arts.
But in the wake of every raging success — Roots N Blues N BBQ and the
True/False Film Fest, for example — lie scores of great ideas that have
crumbled in a dearth of patron support. MCB continues to stretch itself,
always raising the bar(re).
