Overlove/Underpass brings energy and wonder to the understated beauty of this architectural thoroughfare. Fruit wielding goddesses oversee the pulse of daily life while fierce improvisators inscribe the splayed space. This new group work includes twelve dancers and envelopes three duets from Ms. Gallant's critically acclaimed meditation on romantic love, An Absurd Vice. Live Music.
