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.

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

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