Known for her exacting rigor and mesmerizing precision, “Bessie” award–winner Beth Gill makes choreography that is spare yet playful, stark yet beautiful. In Brand New Sidewalk, Gill teams up with composer Jon Moniaci and lighting designer Thomas Dunn to create a sparse and elegant diptych born of questioning the value of formalism in dance. This evocative new piece for four dancers explores themes of alienation, erasure, fantasy, and power through the lens of abstraction.
Watch an excerpt from Gill’s 2011 Electric Midwife.
