DON'T MISS!: PAS DE POOCH
‘PUNK ballerina” Karole Armitage has gone to the dogs. Her “Werk!: The Armitage Gone! Variety Show” — Wednesday through May 5 at the Abrons Arts Center — brings together a group of acts from artists including painter Will Cotton and former New York City Ballet principal Charles Askegard. But a dance featuring one of photographer William Wegman’s famed Weimaraners is the ribbon on the bow-wow-wow.
Eight-year-old Bobbin will be outfitted like in a Wegman photo, as Armitage dancers try and impress the pooch with their mad dance skills from ballet to krumping.
“I always thought you could make dogs dance,” Armitage explains. “[Wegman] was more skeptical. Dogs have their own personalities. We tried a younger dog, but he rebelled. Bobbin is the right dog; he’s noble, soulful, with a lot of gravitas.” Capping off the doggie dance will be Armitage’s carnival-like celebration, “Rave.” Tickets, $30, at 466 Grand St.; 212-598-0400, abronsarts-center.org
