Abby Z and the New Utility
October 29, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$28
In this newest work by choreographer Abby Zbikowski, dancers of the New Utility dive head-on into the unknown, exploring complex movement that upends expectations. Radioactive Practice embodies the cultural collisions of contemporary living, testing the group’s own mental and physical limits with a hard-wiring for survival. Using movement traditions inspired by street and postmodern dance, contemporary African forms, tap, martial arts and sports, Abby Z shatters established assumptions through an arsenal of physical possibility.
Working with Senegalese dance artist Momar Ndiaye as dramaturge, Zbikowski and crew have created a genre-bending performance that challenges audiences to reconsider, if not completely abandon, their preconceptions of dance.
