WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Billy Clark, a member of La MaMa's Great Jones Rep and leading dancer with Tamar Rogoff and Min Tanka, has formed his own company, Dusara Dance. The troupe debuts with Place Poems, a postmodern work inspired by Sufi love and devotional poetry by Hafiz and Rumi. In it, a variety of dances are interwoven beneath a towering tree framed by a giant projection screen. The dancers, accompanied by live musicians and a haunting sound score, search for their place in a disappearing natural world.
