Summation Dance presents its second annual New York City season this weekend at Baryshnikov Arts Center with the world premiere of Deep End, choreographed by Sumi Clements and produced by Taryn Vander Hoop. The new work casts its audience into the depths of a fishbowl, imagined anew and harboring the illustrious, yet formidable, New York City. Drawing upon this metaphor, the work explores the ideas of confinement, self-awareness, co-habitation in an environment constantly in flux, and the insatiable quest to achieve. Seen through the female perspective, ten women transform the stage into a world in which failure and success are fundamentally equal in a place whose inhabitants seem to ignore the futility of it all.
Summation Dance will perform this Thursday through Saturday, March 8th to 10th, at the Baryshnikov Arts Center – 450 West 37th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 ($12 for students) and are available at www.smarttix.com or by phone at 212.868.4444.
