HILARY EASTON + CO.
NOTHING IS PERFECT, NOTHING IS FINISHED.
Nothing is perfect, nothing is finished. is a dance work by choreographer Hilary Easton with longtime collaborators/dancers Alexandra Albrecht and Michael Ingle, and many audience-collaborators. The dance examines a state of “overripeness”, looking at decay or devolution as essential and exquisite. Nothing is… will be created during a two-week residency at Gibney, with a wide range of audience members invited each day to participate in the work’s development.
Hilary Easton established Hilary Easton + Co in 1992, which has since been presented at venues including American Dance Festival, The Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, Dance Theater Workshop, PS 122, The Center for Contemporary Arts of Santa Fe, The University of Texas, Bennington College, Central Park Summerstage, and The Yard. The NY Times describes her work as “visionary in its simple affirmation of the magic of art and the human spirit.” Hilary Easton is on the faculty of the Juilliard School, where she teaches dance composition, and is the director of Juilliard’s global K-12 dance programs. www.hilaryeaston.com
