In such previous works as Deep End, which takes place in a metaphorical fishbowl, Erode, Heat, and No Man’s Landing, the relatively new Summation Dance troupe has brought an impressive, expressive group dynamic to its unique visual language, concentrating primarily on athletic movement and action, with the dancers, usually free of fancy costumes and exotic props, spending a significant amount of time on the floor. Cofounded in 2010 by NYU grads Sumi Clements and Taryn Vander Hoop, the all-female company is preparing for its third New York City season at BAM, performing two new pieces: Pathological Parenthetical Pageantry plays with the audience’s expectations, set to Gramatik’s “Good Evening Mr. Hitchcock” and LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean,” while Shift explores planes of existence and alternate realities, with original music by Kyle Olson. Both choreographed by artistic director Clements, the works will run April 11-13 at the Fishman Space in the new BAM Fisher, with dancers Kelsey Berry, Angela Curotto, Allie Lochary, Julie McMillan, Kristin Schwab, and Megan Thornburg in addition to Clements and Vander Hoop.
