micaela taylor’s eyesow
EYESOW inhabits three women who are yearning for connection. Connection to one another, a deeper revelation of identity, and purpose. Through effort, rigor, and discontentment, they are on an ongoing search to find what is right in front of them. Nonetheless, they come to realize whatever they reap, they sow.
Bring a blanket and a friend and join us for this free performance at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Harbor View Lawn, as part of Gibney Dance Company’s dance-mobile series! No RSVP required.
