Conceptualist, philosopher, performer, choreographer, and teacher Mary Overlie will perform a special one-night-only event marking the beginning of Danspace Project’s 45 year anniversary season.


The evening also celebrates the recent publication of Overlie’s book Standing in Space, The Six Viewpoints, based on her internationally known theory and practice, which has played a distinguished role in shaping contemporary American and European theater and dance.

Overlie played a seminal role in the founding of Danspace Project, Movement Research, and the Experimental Theater Wing (ETW) at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She also helped to establish ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival.

Mary will be joined on this evening with current associates Sophia Treanor, Timothy John Scott, Hanna Gross, and Nicolas Norena, former performers from her original company, Wendell Beavers, Paul Langland, and Nina Martin, as well as guests, Dan Safer, Brendan McCall, Deborah Black, Roel Swanenberg, and Tony Perucci.
