I wish that I could credit this dance company, but I couldn’t find them listed anywhere in the guide to the festival.  Judging by the apparatus, which was a gigantic seesaw that moved according to how the dancers distributed their weight as they struck a pose, I want to say that it’s Streb.  But I can’t say for sure.  If you know who it is, please tell me.

It’s always such a treat to see dance performed outdoors.  I really liked the way that the apparatus and the dancers looked against these big gray buildings.  They attracted quite a crowd.

Update:  A reader has solved the mystery and told me about this work.  It’s created by artist Eve Bailey along with dancers from several local companies.

    Thank you for your nice comments Karen and Gaelle! I am working on a new outdoor sculpture-performance piece for the next Dumbo Arts Festival. Hope you can make it!
