REVIEW: Week Two Gotham Dance Festival

Tuesday night, Kate Weare Company took the Joyce stage in the continuation of Gotham Dance Festival. Weare showed two works: “Lean-to” a popular piece from 2009, and a world premiere of the mystical and lush “Garden,” Weare’s newest creation. After this, my first encounter with the company, I am smitten.

“Lean-to” is as on edge as it gets. The curtain rises to reveal a starkly white, sail-like structure by Kurt Perschke as a power trio (dancers Adrian Clark, Douglas Gillespie and the unforgettable Leslie Kraus) surely and slowly initiate an interaction which cannot be distinguished as battle or alliance.
