Open Dress Rehearsal*:

(the open dress rehearsal is currently at capacity)

2022-23 Renewal Residency Artist Andros Zins-Browne is an NYC-born performance and dance artist whose work has been presented and commissioned globally.

Zins-Browne’s recent work (duel c, River-To-River Festival, 2023) explores ideas of care and violence commingled between bodies. With duel    H, he extends his inquiry into relationships between bodies and ecology, exploring fluidity between human animals and land in their potentialities.

Inhabiting a space where binaries as care and violence, human and non-human, above and below might intertwine, the performance rearranges the hierarchical terms we habitually stand on.

Under the ground
Beneath the earth
Below the surface
Be low

To exist
An ex-pression of
A life out of / from

When life on earth seemed uninhabitable,
We went under

Subterranean growth
Subterranean light
Subterranean joy
