WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Emily Bunning and Gina Young: Friday and Saturday, March 12 and 13 at 8pm Emily Bunning with her company Treehouse Shakers presents Under Covers, a carousel of movement with five dancers that are corralled, manipulated and tangled in the material of a "larger than life" circle skirt. Their movement resembles prancing plastic horses, plays with ritual celebration of women's roles and boldly redefines the skirt's properties.
