This quartet contemplates the realities of female identity. The four dancers sweat, struggle, and concentrate. They are covetable and polite, thoughtful and bright. These women stampede your vision with power and ferocious vulnerability, whip the space up with their movement, and wipe it down with their sweat-damp haunches before striding out on their own muscular legs. she is not a comfortable thing features dancers Ashley Handel, Anneke Hansen, Alice MacDonald, and Emily Moore. Composer Nathan Koci returns to create another atmospheric score, while set designer Jian Jung and lighting designer Holly Ko engineer a unique environment of thread and light.
The show runs at Martha Graham Studio Theater, 55 Bethune Street (west of Washington), 11th Floor.
