Philippa Kaye Company opens tonight through Saturday night at 7:30p at Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn. (361 Manhattan Ave., between Jackson St. and Withers St.)

I did the costumes for Beyond a Shadow, a playful exploration of movement and projection, which also features live music by Susie Ibarra.



The show also includes the piece Miraculous Arms an A.R.T. by the Spinnerettes, for which I did some last-minute fussing with the fun, furry dresses designed by Philippa Kaye.






The evening includes dancers Lia Bonfilio, Briana Brown, Megan Schenk, Arletta Anderson, Cara Heerdt, Cara Liguori, and Kensaku Shinohara and an art installation by Julien Gardair.  For tickets, click here.

I will be there on Friday night–hope to see you there!
