For our inaugural spring season at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center titled “Making Space,” we will introduce audiences to our three diverse performance venues. Over fourteen weeks we will present the work of twenty-two provocative and groundbreaking dance, theater, and multimedia artists who are pushing the limits of performance in New York City.
