“…the choreography deliciously captures every nuance and accent of Tyondai Braxton’s composition.”
-The Boston Globe

Closing Bell features four bone-dry figures who inhabit a darkly comic, ferociously athletic, brain teaser of a dance.  Warner Brothers and the Sunday Times Crossword meet the decathlon.

Premiere: August 26, 2011
Inside/Out Stage, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
Becket, MA

Closing Bell was developed in residence at the Baryshnikov Arts Center and made possible by The Jerome Robbins Foundation New Essential Works (NEW) Fellowship.
