Brendan Fernandes, who works at the intersection of physical and visual art, presents dance inspired by the rocking chairs that Isamu Noguchi created for Martha Graham's "Appalachian Spring" (1944). Dancers sit on them and remain balanced while working through a version of Graham's famous "contract and release" exercise. Shows repeat on all Saturdays in February, plus March 7.
