POP Performance: Huddled Spaces

HUddled Spaces

Slim and Cavale live in sin together. We find them after one too many mornings. Huddled Spaces’ unique production explores the absurdity of reality in their physical adaptation of Cowboy Mouth, the dark work by Sam Shepard and Patti Smith. In the static glow of their televisions, eight tangled limbs grapple with dependency, control, and what it means to be a savior.

Huddled Spaces is a new artist collective exploring the impact of an environment on the individual; the space being the first ingredient with all else following in procession. The mission of Huddled Spaces is to explore variant experiences, expressions, and understandings, thereby enriching conversational convergence and discovery. Interests include the abstraction of text and movement, as well as the use of live performance technology. Our artists strive for originality and artistic excellence, in addition to an understanding of the value of fluidity and failure – all vital for theatrical experimentation. Join us in our attempt to haunt, bother, and tickle.

POP provides the dance community with increased support for showings and performances.

POP enables dance artists to self-produce performances and showings at Gibney through a curated rental process. Artists can participate in POP through Performances, Showings, or Open Rehearsals. POP Performances offer a three-night run in The Theater (Studio H) at 280 Broadway. POP Showings & Open Rehearsals are more informal showings in our studios.


The accessible entrance for this location is located at 280 Broadway. Please note that this is a shared entrance with the New York City Department of Buildings. To access the elevator, attendees may be asked to provide a valid photo ID and go through building security, including a metal detector.

Requests for reasonable accommodation or for access to the 280 Broadway entrance after 5:00 pm or on the weekend should be made three days in advance by contacting Elyse Desmond at 646.837.6809 (Voice only), or by e-mailing elyse@gibneydance.org.
