gifts, the latest evening-length work from the professional company, Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance, premiered in a sold-out 5-night run in January, inhabiting a 20 x 20 storage unit in Red Hook, Brooklyn's Treasure Island Storage Building. Back by popular demand, this November, gifts returns to TI for an even more intimate encore run that is a stark reflection on the self-imposed anxiety we create when we isolate ourselves from people and experiences we do not understand in the name of our security. In a "safe" white world (that is also blue), free from danger, with all needs met, gifts asks what we need to make us secure when we already have enough.
Choreography and direction by Cora Dance Artistic Director Shannon Hummel in collaboration with Cora Dance performers Katie Dean and Kelsey Kramer
Original score by composer Hans Bilger
Lighting design by Severn Clay-Youman
