The World Premiere of she dreams in code was presented by the Baryshnikov Arts Center, NYC, October 13-16, 2011.
she dreams in code was presented the week of August 15-19 at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.
Liz Gerring and long time collaborator, composer and sound artist Michael J. Schumacher explore the co-dependency between dance and music, together creating an oblique environment of relationships that crisscross space and time.
In this work the choreographer focuses on her methods of construction; clarification of image rather than invention of new movement. Highly athletic, the challenging physical demands of the vocabulary are expressed in abstraction often drawn from the everyday.
