New York City
Part of the Stories of Dance series. Three tap-dancing robots become unstuck from reality and travel to another dimension. Stripped of their parts, they are rebuilt as humans. As they search for a way back to reality, they must rediscover themselves, recover their identities, and remember what it is like to be human. What It’s Like to Be Human is based on the experiences of choreographer Tristan Bruns’s yearlong break from concert dance to perform in a more industrialized theater setting. It is a work in progress that changes from performance to performance based on audience feedback.
