Two dancers, a contained space, a stationary audience. In Between You and Me, simultaneous episodes present solos or a duet depending on what is revealed during the conversation.
Between You and Me received support, in part, from Dance New Amsterdam’s commissioning fund and was made possible by Lower
Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program through a real estste donation from Capstone equities. Partial funding provided by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. Creation realized in part through a residency at Mount Tremper Arts and in part through a fellowship at Summer Stages Dance founded and directed by Richard Colton and Amy Spencer.
