The performances will start at 8:00PM at Red Bean Studio Theater, 320 W 37th St. New York, NY 10018 (Btwn 8th and 9th Ave) 7th Floor. Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door. $15 General Admission. Saturday Night Gala Fundraiser after the performance sponsored by Famous Grouse. Seating is limited.
PM Dance Co. will present a world premiere work exploring the confines that exist all around us. Using virtuosic, precise, and fluid vocabulary, the work abstracts the human narrative by exploring the complexities of both the internal and external forces that prevent us as Americans from moving forward. Two worlds exist in one; the one in which we can always move forward and the one in which we repeatedly trap ourselves.
Tara Lee Burns Choreography presents the world premiere of "The Making of Statues." "The Making of Statues" (formerly "The Welkin Ring") is a 30-minute mythological fantasy that depicts the stories of goddesses immersed in a projected environment. Follow five goddesses as they break through their mortal lives to become divine while immersed in projected celestial environments. Evoking connections between ancient Greek goddesses and constellations, their mortal relationships are tested, revealing the agony and ecstasy of both mortals and gods.
