Dixon Place presents Kaley Pruitt Dance in Fast Forward Split Bill Series February 12th

Pruitt’s Through All This & You premiered in July 2017 in KPD’s NYC season at Triskelion Arts.  We’re thrilled to be bringing this work back presented in a split bill series alongside MJM Dance at Dixon Place February 12th.  The piece will performed by Cassandra Bowser, Ashley Ervin, Robert Perales & Kaley Pruitt.

Through All This & You is a fun, light-hearted suite of dances that reveals the subtle, often attempting to be hidden, nuances in human relationships.  Not to be taken too seriously, this dance has luscious moments of ridiculousness and awkwardness.  The piece explores the many forms of love, play, competition, care, voyeurism, and how those can meld together and trigger the each other.
