Berries and Bulls is an exposé on the inherent tangles found in long-term relationships. Tiffany Mills Company's latest dance/theater work will be presented in a three-night engagement that runs Thursday, March 1 through Saturday, March 3, 2012 with performances at 7:30PM at the Baryshnikov Arts Center Howard Gilman Performance Space.
Through movement and text, four people vibrating on different frequencies try to connect. They misread signals; push touching to extremes; and taunt each other into playing physically risky games. The stakes are high for these relationships to fail. But by tipping reality on its side -- with fantastical stories and fanciful props (blueberries, goose feathers, paper airplanes) -- the performers find an entry point for communicating and questioning: What are our expectations of others? How much can we rely on those closest to us? Characteristic of Tiffany Mills' style, bold movement, surprising text, and daring partnering will all play their part in this evening-length work.
England-based experimental theater artist Peter Petralia (Dramaturge), NYU Tisch School of the Arts Professor Kay Cummings (Editing Advisor), and four dancers: Jeffrey Duval, Kevin Ho, Emily Pope-Blackman and Petra van Noort, will join Tiffany Mills (Choreographer and Artistic Director) as the Company examines flaws and foibles revealed in relationships.
