Your boundaries define nothing.
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council is pleased to present Carrie Ahern Dance's SeNSATE in The Vaults at 14 Wall Street. After its critically acclaimed premiere at the Brooklyn Lyceum in November 2009, Carrie Ahern Dance's SeNSATE is adapted for the underground, multi-level vault at 14 Wall Street, where the piece was initially created and rehearsed. Ahern invites SeNSATE's performers and audience to bring their fetters and flaws and struggle to push the confines of reinforced steel walls and the boundaries of their bodies. The audience is free to come and go within the vault spaces anytime during the three designated hours, experiencing the dance from anywhere they choose. It is impossible to see the entire work from any one vantage point. Performed in a cyclic loop without beginning or end, SeNSATE allows you the freedom to frame your own experience. Private spaces become public as individual experiences are absorbed and co-opted by others in the room.
Dancers Carrie Ahern, Donna Costello, David Figueroa, Kelly Hayes, and Jillian Hollis perform for the duration. Composer Anne Hege performs live with an original score that uses her voice and innovative self-made instruments to meld seamlessly with the movement. Costumes are by Naoko Nagata and the lighting environment by Jay Ryan. More information can be found at www.carrieahern.com.
" [The dancers] take to this work with feverish abandon and put their bodies--maybe even their sanity--on the line." Eva Yaa Asantewaa
