THINGS AREN’T WHERE THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
A crew of strangers converge over a quick slice inside a NYC pizza shop— a casual, no bullshit, community hub. When a “contaigent” enters, dance turns inconsequential moments into idiosyncratic gestures, toggling between task and Bob Fosse-inspired choreography. Subtle and disorientating editing crafts an intimate dream between strangers.
QUICK SLICE is also a long-form installation, which premiered at New York Live Arts in Chelsea, NYC alongside “Paramodernities” by award-winning choreographer Netta Yerushalmy.
