Vanessa Anspaugh is a New York-based choreographer and performance-maker. We Are Weather is a theatrical dance work that explores the ways we simultaneously resist and desire the dynamics of power and surrender that lie at the heart of intimacy. Anspaugh exposes the terror and the pleasure of transcending our own subjectivity as we look to each other to find ourselves.
Performed by Aretha Aoki, Lindsay Clark, and Bessie McDonough-Thayer
Dramaturg Susan Mar Landau
Maura Nguyen Donohue is a choreographer, educator, and artist based in New York City. I'm not coming back explores changing states and physical decay through processes of repetition, accumulation, evolution, and deconstruction. A clock ticks, bodies oscillate, shake, vibrate, jiggle, thrash, and collapse, while little red riding hood wanders through an eerie landscape at childhood's end.
Performed by Alexandra Amirov, Peggy Cheng, Kristina Dobosz, Marc Morozumi, Maura Nguyen Donohue, and Sasa Yung
Lighting design by Kathy Kaufmann
