466 Grand Street
Turbulence (a dance about the economy) plays with normative disruptions and calculated disregard for generally accepted rules of engagement. A collaborative creation, the work is a bodily response to economic crisis; an experimental hybrid of contemporary dance, improvised happening and political theater. Instigated before Occupy, and engaging questions of debt, value and exchange, Turbulence is intended as both provocation and affirmation of the current global movement.
Turbulence was created and will be performed by Julie Phelps, Emily Leap, Laura Arrington, Jesse Hewit, Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos, Hana Erdman, Gabriel Todd, Ruairí O’Donovan, Empress Jupiter, Jassem Hindi, and Keith Hennessy. Guest performers for American Realness include Ishmael Houston-Jones (NY), Anna Martine Whitehead (LA), and Keyon Gaskin (Portland).
