As Seen At The DUMBO Arts Festival – 01
I wish that I could credit this dance company, but I couldn’t find them listed anywhere in the guide to the festival. Judging by the apparatus, which was a gigantic seesaw that moved according to how the dancers distributed their weight as they struck a pose, I want to say that it’s Streb. But I can’t say for sure. If you know who it is, please tell me.
It’s always such a treat to see dance performed outdoors. I really liked the way that the apparatus and the dancers looked against these big gray buildings. They attracted quite a crowd.
Dancers waiting in the wings.
Update: A reader has solved the mystery and told me about this work. It’s created by artist Eve Bailey along with dancers from several local companies.
