Pittsburgh native Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith, who hails from North Carolina, have been teaming up to present their own works since 2006 while also dancing for many other companies. Their latest collaboration, Beautiful Bone, which premieres at the Chocolate Factory in Long Island City this week, examines shame and love through imagination and feeling. The evening-length piece features sound design by James Lo, costume design and construction by Shelley Smith, and lighting by Madeline Best, who performed with Smith in a reprise of Juliana F. May / MAYDANCE’s Gutter Gate at New York Live Arts in January as part of APAP/NYC. Smith will also be presenting a Studio Series work at NYLA in June that will include an In Process Talk with May.
