View Partially Obstructed

Tonight at 7:30, Gina Gibney Dance will present a preview of View Partially Obstructed as part of the NYU Tisch Dance Summer Residency Festival, followed by an informal reception where audiences can meet the artists and enjoy a beer.  The evening-length work, which will premiere this October at Baryshnikov Arts Center, examines the pure physical and psychological fact that we can’t see everything from every angle, nor can we put together all of the pieces of our fragmented selves.  By only seeing part of something, we live with imperfect information about ourselves and those around us.  In this new work, the view is partially obstructed for both the performer and the viewer. Artistic director and choreographer Gina Gibney said:

“We fill in what we don’t know with what we do know.  The viewer can think about this process and contemplate how we decide what we will and will not pay attention to – both internally and externally – and how we struggle to create a full view from incomplete information.”

This preview showing, including the post-performance beer reception with the artists, is pay-what-you-can.
