Ivy Baldwin Dance – Keen [No. 2]


June 1-11, 2017

Thursdays thru Sundays at 8pm

Co-commissioned and co-presented with Abrons Arts Center and Joyce Unleashed.
Performed at the Abrons Arts Center Playhouse.

Keen [No. 2] builds upon Baldwin’s recently premiered Keen (Part 1) for the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, CT. Keen grows out of an open-eyed exploration of that which we uncomfortably avoid: the contours of grief. Baldwin and her all-woman cast mine the emotional and physical experience of loss, memory and holding love.

Set Design by Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen. Score by Justin Jones. Lighting design by Chloë Z. Brown. Costume design by Mindy Nelson. Ivy Baldwin Dance creative producer: Meredith Boggia.
