The Liz Gerring Dance Company presents the new work MONTAUK at Baryshnikov Arts Center, February 5-8, 2009. The work for dancers Elizabeth DeMent, Tony Neidenbach, Jessica Weiss & Liz Gerring features a score by composer Seth Nehil and set design by visual artist Vittoria Chierici.
Inspired by a memory of place, MONTAUK is a landscape unfolding between the grouping's of three dancers. The work is characterized by its demanding physicality and attention to detailed gesture, often derived from everyday experiences. Non-narrative, abstract and highly technical, at its core MONTAUK is based on the emotions derived from the evocation of a time and place, expressed through the relationship between dancers.
