Performing the Precarious, Part 2: Day into Night
Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1
Industry City (220 36th St, Brooklyn, NY)
December 7, 2013, 3-6pm

Danspace Project presents the second of two evenings of performances as part of Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1. To commemorate the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy—and the resiliency of New York City’s arts community, which was hit especially hard by the storm—the Dedalus Foundation, the Brooklyn Rail, and the Jamestown Charitable Foundation join with Industry City Associates, to present this nearly 100,000 square foot exhibition at Industry City, a hub of creative manufacturing and innovation in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

On Saturday, December 7, 2013 Judy Hussie-Taylor curates Performing the Precarious: Day Into Night. Sandy's violent arrival reminded those of us in the urban environment of our precarious situation and shared fragility when confronted with the forces of nature. Michelle Boulé, Rebecca Brooks, Rebecca Davis, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Joanna Kotze, Rashaun Mitchell, Cori Olinghouse, and Will Rawls each create a series of simultaneous dances or "poems in space" responding to Sandy, to each other, to the vast architecture of the industrial space, and to the fading light at the end of day.
