RED is produced as BBD's 2022/23 Guest Performance Residency.
Bare Bait Dance is thrilled to welcome 2nd Best Dance Company from NYC for our 2022/23 Guest Performance Residency!
RED walks the fuzzy, shag-carpet line between dance performance and narrative play, leaning into both text and movement to tell an abstracted version of a well known fictional story of survival: Little Red Riding Hood. By cycling through distinct characters, either true to the original story or entirely new, 2nd Best Dance Company explores how we confront the many-faced “big bads” that lurk on our personal wooded paths. In RED (choreographed, written, and directed by Hannah Garner), four performers brave the unknown to tackle “topics like death and queer identity through rigorous, inventive movement and wit” (Dance Magazine, 2020).
Featuring 2nd Best Dance Company: Courtney Barth, Hannah Garner, Will Noling, and Ryan Yamauchi.
2nd Best Dance Company, directed by Hannah Garner, is a New York City based company that creates, performs, and teaches physically rigorous, sometimes virtuosic, almost always slapstick dance-plays. They connect to audiences, students, and professionals alike as they share emotionally accessible work that finds solace in the humor of being human. 2ndbestdance.com
