Bessie award-winning choreographer Douglas Dunn has a long association with Danspace Project and returns once again to perform on the closing weekend of Body Madness Part 2. Dunn's choreography has been noted by Deborah Jowitt for its "raffish intelligence" and "awkward or goofy moves that can either be comical or lovely -- sometimes both." He has danced with Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Yvonne Rainer, and Grand Union improvisational collective. In 2008, Dunn was inducted into the french Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
Buridan's Ass is a piece for nineteen dancers. It offers sections of lyrical movement tied to dulcet music juxtaposed to sections of rough and tumble combative duets danced in silence.
