Dylan Crossman: Here We Are (World Premiere)
50 minutes / Suitable for 12 years and up
Take Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Use as background noise. Add five performers who love, lust, and fear in front of you. For you. While Jesse Stiles’ haunting score and the feel of old Prague—crafted by scenographer Hubert Lafore—filter into the old Playhouse, ponder whether these individuals are in love with each other or in love with you, their witness. Or maybe it is the sound of you falling in love again.
Dylan Crossman Dans(c)e looks at human behavior within formalism. Its work has been called compellingly poetic by The New York Times and has been seen at Abrons Arts Center (as a part of Laurie Uprichard’s Travelogue series), DanceRoulette, the 92nd street Y, the Museum of Arts and Design and The Yard. Dylan Crossman also works with children and adults, using dance as a means for social integration and conflict resolution.
“marvelous rhythm … a confessional force yet cooly, objectively delivered” – New York Times
Here We Are, a new piece by Dylan Crossman, was made possible by the Jerome Foundation.
