Pre-Show Talk Dec 13 at 6pm

Originally created and performed in 1992 at Performance Space 122 and reconstructed in 1995 at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, The Shining is a dance-installation work full of thrill and fearful anxiety. It speaks of experiences at once sought and avoided – how do we hide from fear, play with thrills and terrors? How do those emotions excluded from consciousness play with us? This second reconstruction features original cast members Scott Heron, Annie Iobst, and Mike Iveson with new cast members Yve Laris Cohen, Jen Rosenblit, Aki Sasamoto, Osmani Tellez, Arturo Vidich, and Emily Wexler, and special guest appearances from Hapi Phace, Stinkmetal and Gina Varla Vetro.

The reconstruction of The Shining is supported by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.
