Maria Hassabi, SHOW
Black Box Teater, Saturday 6th September 4pm

Maria Hassabi’s Show has been brought back to New York twice since it premiered there in 2011. This will be the first performance of the work in Scandinavia. “SHOW develops as an in inquiry between audience and performer, performance space and emotional space. The audience members, who have become unwitting participants in the event, can barely take their eyes off the dancers – except when looking at each other. Show is a brilliant, often erotically charged piece performed by two dynamic dancers unafraid to take risks.”
