A Single Ride is a multimedia dance show that explores the complex relationships between New Yorkers and the subway. Riding the train can evoke some of our most primitive emotions, anger and frustration, or it can stir in us what makes us most human, our compassion and empathy. Choreographer Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie (NMQP, “brothers”) reflects on these emotions by fusing the underground styles of breaking, house and vogue with a contemporary aesthetic. She asks the fundamental questions: Where are we going? Where do we come from? And, where is that train?
Performed by Ljuba Castot, Teena Marie Custer, Val "Ms. Vee" Ho, Erin Holmes, Richard Maguire, and MiRi "Seoulsonyk" Park.
Original music composed by Grammy Award winner Marty Beller, lighting by Tim Cryan, projection design by David Bengali, and set design by Luke Clark Tyler.
Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings from Sept. 20th-29th at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and can be purchased here. For more information, please visit Dixon Place's website.
