Patricia Hoffbauer premieres Dances for Intimate Spaces and Friendly People, a series of duets, trios, and quartets presented simultaneously as installations in various Gibney Dance studios. An accompanying exhibition of video and writings presents a visual record of the work’s creation, contextualizing the involved artists’ process in relationship

to post/modern dance history. Working with long-time collaborators writer George Emilio Sanchez, video artist Peter Richards, designer

Liz Prince, and a multi-generational cast of dance luminaries—Alyssa Alpine, Jonathan Gonzalez, Peggy Gould, Kareem Alexander Hewitt, Ellie Kusner, Vincent McCloskey, Mor Mendel, Sharon Milanese, Yvonne Rainer, Tom Rawe, Sara Rudner, George Emilio Sanchez, David Thomson, and Jennifer Way—Hoffbauer creates a constellation of performative vignettes exploring the internal politics of art making.
