Pow is a “Frankenstein” of a dance made from scraps of fear and loathing that are boldly transformed, sutured, amplified and left to run amok, creating a brave new version of events.
Pow is a procession of intimate narratives about monsters and angels, and monstrous angels. It’s a Frankenstein of a performance in which elements of acclaimed dances Garfield has made are radically reconfigured, sutured, amplified and left to run amok, creating a shocking new version of events. In Pow, resilience is palpable as the performers rise to the physical challenge, emotional engagement, and complex sequential contests of the work.
The 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Festival presents five artists over five weeks, from February 11 through March 20, 2016, including a performance for families and a photography exhibition.
