Beth Gill : Nail Biter
June 22–23, 5:30 pm
Federal Hall, 26 Wall Street
Beth Gill’s Nail Biter is a darkly beautiful dreamscape in which the theatrical tools of character and story are reimagined through a psychodramatic lens, transforming contemporary dance performance into a vital space of ritual. Nail Biter reaches towards science fiction and ancient myth to reveal stories of connection and loss with a sense of magic and awe.
Co-commissioned by the Fisher Center at Bard, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Walker Art Center, this multi-stage creative process consists of artistic residencies and preview performances.
Presented in partnership with National Park Service
