This looks interesting.

Dark Horse/Black Forest at The Gershwin Hotel
Presented by Performance Space 122 and Neke Carson
A special Dance Installation: Space is Limited, Book in Advance

DARK HORSE/BLACK FOREST is an intense love story presented in the most intimate space: a bathroom. The lobby bathroom of The Gershwin Hotel will be transformed by an installation of flourescents, mirrors, and video screens for this exclusive boutique performance. The audience is privy to an emotional and private exchange between a couple that evolves into a formal, sensual dance. There are two casts that rotate bi-weekly: a man and a woman (Heather Olson & Joseph Poulson), and two men (Luke Miller & Darrin Wright).

“As much an installation artist as a choreographer, [Castro] creates intricate environments in which lighting, costumes and set share equal weight with steps.”
– Gia Kourlas, The New York Times

“Castro’s work is intellectual. Her movement is quirky; remarkably polished performances propel her unexpected stutters and awkward positions…Castro’s smart, kooky shenanigans captivate…”
-Chris Dohse, The Village Voice

“Castro’s upcoming duet takes voyeurism to a precipice… it doesn’t happen on a stage but in a bathroom like yours.”
-Lori Ortiz
