Lance Gries brings "IF Immanent Field" to Danspace Project

As a member of The Trisha Brown Dance Company (1985-1992),
Gries won a Bessie Award and also received a 2011 Bessie nomination
for his solo evening, Etudes for an Astronaut.
Hands float, sneak, snake, dowse, elongate, coil, swirl and fuss, always leading the way through space bristling with energy. Encircled by watchers, Lance Gries and his fellow dancers come and go. An austere, sometimes billowing Jimena Paz; a deific, stately Diane Madden; and Juliette Mapp, alternately ethereal and wry, they infuse the space with a visualized music.

Gries's IF Immanent Field, premiering at Danspace Project tomorrow evening, draws from the choreographer's belief in a common awareness, "a primary field of shared conscious energy pervades and connects all things," and that dancers readily access and utilize.

You are invited to sit and contemplate and breathe it all in.

March 20-22, Thursday-Saturday, 8PM
Arrive around 7:45pm each night for pre-show entertainment.
