NYC – Anneke Hansen Dance will present Practical Space, an exploration of performance in 26 events, over the course of 5 weeks in November and December 2012.

Tickets are FREE. Seating is extremely limited and advance reservations are required. Reservations are available online through Brown Paper Tickets at http://practicalspace.brownpapertickets.com or by calling 1-800-838-3006.

Practical Space investigates the act of performance and its application to the creation of a dance. It addresses questions about the place of live performance in our culture as opportunities dwindle. Performance has become a highly rarified, adrenaline infused moment at the very end of a creative process, and dancers generally spend very little time performing this performing art form. They spend huge amounts of time developing as technicians, but they require conditions beyond class or rehearsal in order to create identities as performers. Choreographer Anneke Hansen believes that this deficit of performance opportunities - particularly in relationship to a single choreographic oeuvre - limits the creative potential of any work to be truly, deeply realized. Practical Space creates an opportunity for Hansen and her dancers to craft, explore, and hone their identities as performers in order to more thoroughly develop their understanding of both this specific dance practice and of performance more generally.
