A co-production of Baruch Performing Arts Center, Short Stories
, is an evning of multi-arts dance theater works by choreographer Lane Gifford featuring As We Are
, a performance installation created in collaboration with renowned sculptor Mark Mennin and the talented composer Trevor Gureckis. By approaching the living experience as a complex game, As We Are
offers a collage of events that trigger a canvas of color and creation in dance, sculpture, drama and music. We look at human consciousness as revealed in a movement journey and one man's passage through this intriguing landscape.
The program will also include Bi-Coastal
, works which look at colliding forces at play in a variety of forms and variations. In Bi-Coastal
, a clash of movement styles lead to exhilarating new physical expressions while colliding thoughts and verbal interplay in Dilemma
, results in an edgy movement provocation about inner conflict and resolution.
