East River Park, Manhattan -- August 8 at 8pm
St. Mary's Park, Bronx -- August 14 & 15 at 8pm

Combining theater, dance, and installation art, Dancing vs. The Rat Experiment is a genre-defying theater piece by the company Witness Relocation. It is a wryly entertaining commentary, circa 2006 in the USA. Its first part plants the suggestion that human behavior may be linked to that of so-called lower orders more than we like to imagine, and its second part sneakily and satirically proves the point. A winner of three New York Innovative Theater Awards in 2007, director/choreographer Dan Safer provides a constant stream of surprises for the audience.

Presented by CityParks Theater.
