ERYC TAYLOR DANCE AT HOWL! HAPPENING
Eryc Taylor Dance
ERYC TAYLOR DANCE will present two repertory works at Howl! Happening in lower Manhattan on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00pm. The dance performance will honor Chris Tanner: Here’s Looking at You, an exhibition of paintings and drawings the artist created over the last decade. The Tanner exhibit is on view at Howl! Happening through September 30.
Song for Cello and Piano (2016) is a quartet choreographed by Artistic Director Eryc Taylor in collaboration with his dancers. The full repertory work is set to an original composition from friend, author and composer Daniel Tobias, investigating insecure and violent tendencies. Grand Duo (2016 - excerpt) is a love story, which explores the ups and downs of romantic relationships. Performed to the music of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, Grand Duo explores missed connections, the search for love, lives intertwined and the test of reality.
WHEN: Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 7:00pm
WHAT: ERYC TAYLOR DANCE to perform two repertory works, GRAND DUO and SONG FOR CELLO AND PIANO in celebration of the work of artist Chris Tanner.
WHO: Eryc Taylor Dancers will offer this FREE performance one time only, in the Howl Gallery space, under the auspices of Howl! Happening Events.
WHERE: Howl! Happening, 6 East 1st Street, New York, NY
WHY: Eryc Taylor Dance will perform repertory in support of Chris Tanner: Here’s Looking at You, an exhibit of his work at HOWL! HAPPENING. “Tanner’s work is about looking… seeing inside to the core of deep vulnerability in each of us. It’s also about being ravaged by beauty. Even in this #MeToo moment, it continues to be easy to dismiss the feminine in art, the embellishments that dazzle, and the extravagance that meets the eye within the wild beauty of Chris Tanner’s over-the-top work.”
