Who: Sarah Skaggs and Cori Kresge
What: The New Ecstatic 2.0
Where: Abrons Arts Center, Experimental Theater, 466 Grand St. at Pitt St., 212-598-0400
When: February 18-21, $20
Why: In 2013, Sarah Skaggs collaborated with Cori Kresge on The New Ecstatic, a duet set to Charles Ives’s “The Unanswered Question” and Krzysztof Penderecki’s “Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima.” Skaggs, who founded Sarah Skaggs Dance in 1995, and Kresge will now bring an expanded version of the piece, renamed The New Ecstatic 2.0, to Abrons Arts Center February 18-21, examining traumatic and powerfully emotional out-of-body states following epic tragedies, partially inspired by Martha Graham’s Steps in the Street. Skaggs’s previous works include Paradise, Higher Ground, Dances for Disasters, and 9/11 Dance — A Roving Memorial. Skaggs and Kresge’s evening-length piece is part of the ongoing Travelogues series at Abrons, curated by Laurie Uprichard.
