Peter Stathas Dance presents the World Premiere of In the Garden from Thursday-Saturday, February 20-22, 2020 at 8pm at The Theater at Gibney, 280 Broadway (entrance at 53A Chambers). Tickets are $15 and are available at https://gibneydance.org/event/pop-performance-peter-stathas-dance/2020-02-20. Pending availability, tickets can be purchased at the door for $20.
A new solo piece, In The Garden is the exploration of our life cycle. It dwells on the questions we ask ourselves as we move through this continuum. And it immerses us in the natural, authentic aspects of our creative growth. This is the initial solo of what will evolve into a larger group work. The piece will combine music with the dancer's recorded voice. Other dances performed this evening include: Five Studies for a Waiter and a Business Woman (1985) and Assuage (2018) as well as Conundrum, which premiered last year at St. Marks Church as part of Danspace Community Access Program. Conundrum was conceived with the idea of specific confined spaces being used to represent your own and others' perceptions. As each new dancer is added, the "space" expands to allow the dancers to shed those perceptions and to be their authentic selves.
Dancers: Selina Hack, Ty Graynor, Paulina Meneses, Jesse Obremski, Emilee Pratt, Sasha Rydlizky and Lauren Twomley.
