WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Choreographer Ivy Baldwin's latest work, Keen (Part 2), is commissioned by Abrons Arts Center, the Joyce, and the Chocolate Factory. This new dance for the Abrons Playhouse builds upon Baldwin's recent Keen (Part 1) for the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. Keen (Part 2) is performed by Baldwin, Anna Carapetyan, Eleanor Smith, and Katie Workum, with a score by Justin Jones, lighting by Chloe Z. Brown, and costumes by Mindy Nelson. Keen (Part 2) grows out of an open-eyed exploration of that which we uncomfortably avoid: the contours of grief — the rites and rituals, spoken and unspoken, public and hidden, age-old and brand-new.
