Battery Dance @ The Shed03 Dec 2021, Posted by in
Visit DRIFT: Fragile Future at The Shed on December 10-11, as four established and emerging dance companies respond to Studio DRIFT’s kinetic installation, EGO (2020-2021), creating a cross disciplinary conversation intertwining performance and experiential art.
Battery Dance is featured on Saturday, December 11th with timings beginning at 2:30 – 8:00pm.
Performances within EGO navigate a theme of networks between our bodies and nature, echoing the dynamic transformations of the woven cuboid.
Dancers will translate the multi-sensory work Ego, which vacillates from an inflexible imposing rectangle to a vulnerable and yielding presence, representing various emotional states. Co-presented by Superblue and The Shed, Fragile Future uses sound, movement, and film by DRIFT to transform The Shed’s galleries with experiential installations that suggest alternative solutions for a positive future. In addition to live dance performances, the last opportunities to visit the monumental, immersive Drifters experience are available on just six select dates throughout the rest of the installation’s run.
Purchase tickets at theshed.org. Note: Performances run approximately 20 minutes and viewing space in the Ego gallery is first come, first served
Battery Dance’s performance at DRIFT: Fragile Future is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
