TAKE ROOT, now in its 10th season, nurtures dance artists at established stages in their careers, pairing them in a split bill or full evening-length program. This monthly series supports dance makers’ experimentation and growth by providing our venue, Green Space, along with full technical and marketing support to present their work to the NYC public.

About the Work
DeLucia Benson Dance will show a duet of works. The first set will include Crux Acclaim and Quintessence. Crux Acclaim is a work of physical dance that creates shapes and patterns that excites the mind and spirit. Quintessence is a work with dynamic shifts in mood, timing, and movement quality. Strength is apparent as the women collide and embrace. Music will be provided by cellist Loren Dempster.
Six Degrees Dance’s as yet untitled piece explores ideas of fear, aggression, anxiety, apathy and the false panacea of distraction as it relates to today’s social climate. Performers, shrouded by thin veils of complacency, separate themselves from the world around them in an attempt at safety and protection. But when they remove those veils, what do they see? And how will they respond?
