Abby Z and the New Utility: Radioactive Practice

Every day, from Oct 27 - Oct 29, 8 pm
Meany Center for the Performing Arts Northeast Seattle (Seattle)
This is an in-person event

In this newest work by choreographer Abby Zbikowski, dancers of the New Utility dive head-on into the unknown, exploring complex movement that upends expectations. Radioactive Practice embodies the cultural collisions of contemporary living, testing the group's own mental and physical limits with a hard-wiring for survival. Using movement traditions inspired by street and postmodern dance, contemporary African forms, tap, martial arts and sports, Abby Z shatters established assumptions through an arsenal of physical possibility.

Working with Senegalese dance artist Momar Ndiaye as dramaturge, Zbikowski and crew have created a genre-bending performance that challenges audiences to reconsider, if not completely abandon, their preconceptions of dance.

Abby Z and the New Utility's Radioactive Practice is co-presented by Meany Center for the Performing Arts and On the Boards. This co-presentation represents a deeper engagement with Bill T. Jones as 2022-23 Meany Center guest Artistic Associate, to increase artist engagement, support new work, amplify diverse voices, and further expand and diversify audiences for contemporary performance in Seattle, including increasing access to new generations of artists and audiences.
