(Entrance at 53A Chambers Street)
Caitlin Adams and Wesley Ensminger come together for an evening of dance that exposes the limits and indulgences of human existence while deconstructing absences created by displacement and disassociation. Through the abstraction of musical influence, gender roles, and personal history, Blank or Tied allows the audience to witness reflections, without reducing or literalizing any one experience.
