gifts, the latest evening-length work from the professional company, Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance, premiered in a sold-out 5-night run in January, inhabiting a 20 x 20 storage unit in Red Hook, Brooklyn’s Treasure Island Storage Building. Back by popular demand, this November, gifts returns to TI for an even more isolated and intimate encore run. A stark reflection on the self-imposed anxiety we create when we isolate ourselves from people and experiences we do not understand in the name of our safety. In a stark white world (that is also blue), stripped of fear, free from danger, with all needs met, where everything is fine, gifts asks what we need to make us secure when we already have enough. gifts is performed by dancers Katie Dean and Kelsey Kramer with original score by Hans Bilger and costumes by Maria Kofman. (WARNING: This performance takes place in a confined space. Those with concerns should contact Nicole Assanti at nassanti@coradance.org for more details.)
