Left, right...and dance

Wendy Osserman Dance Company in Compromised

Wendy Osserman, whose recent commissions include works for the Baryshnikov Arts Center, La MaMa and 92Y, plans a new quartet for her Spring season. Compromised is inspired by the inflamed political discourse of the moment, seen through the eyes of this keen and often humorous artist.
Compromised reflects the polarization we are witnessing on the political stage, the extremism of the conflicting truths voiced by Left and Right.  Can they both be right? Are they both wrong? The movement is fueled by the contradictions we find between and within us. 
Dancers Lauren Ferguson, Cori Kresge, Cara Heerdt and Milan Misko collaborate with Osserman in this evening length piece.
The Company’s last New York season, presented in association with Joyce SoHo, featured more is more is more or less inspired by Gertrude Stein’s novel, Ida: “more engages and flows from the beginning. It’s light, humorous and eccentric, with moments of mild cacophony, delighting and providing, as Stein did in her own day, unexpected pleasure.” (David St.-Lascaux, Voice of Dance).
See Compromised, Wednesday-Saturday, April 11-14, 8pm at the Hudson Guild Theatre. Tickets are available at or 1-800-838-3006.
