“One of the most beloved of downtown choreographers.”
– Joan Acocella,, The New Yorker

” Bewitching … One of today’s most alive, sensitive performers.”
– Claudia LaRocca, New York Times, 2008

Iconoclassical choreographer Sally Silvers returns to Performance Space 122 with her first new group dance since 2005’s Puppy Skills.

Whiteness is on the hook and down for the hybrid. Silvers answers the seductive call of a stable/single racial life by outing and othering it. Whiteness as symbiotic, open face Blackness. Sudden turns and shocks, bleed-throughs and angularity, pivoting centers, conflict embrace — a new world is ever unexplored and the night’s secret is to make the day swing blue. Jutting and swerving, Yessified is a hyperactivating dance of quirky, fun wired physicality and imagery, a provocative text by Bruce Andrews, electronica star-crossed with sweet soul music and 10 duper super dancers: Javier Cardona, Alan Good, Sara Beth Higgins, Takemi Kitamura, Alejandra Martorell, Miriam Parker, Julia Planine-Troiani, Keith Sabado, and Sally Silvers

Sally Silvers & Dancers has performed nationally and internationally in South Korea, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Europe, the American Dance Festival, and many other locations. Artistic Director Sally Silvers has an on-going fascination with the poetic as well as the social meanings of movement — to offer a no-holds-barred exploration of movement possibilities often wittily tilted toward the eccentric, awkward, and unexpected. Resonating from the movement are the motifs of risk, vulnerability, playfulness, and extremity. Often operating in areas between idiomatic dance and unconventional movement, the work keep its focus on clearly defined, if unusual structures for the articulated body. Her meticulously madcap dances engage experimentation at the edges of drama, fierceness and hope.
