Greg Cook photo blogs perpetual loneliness in anticipation of Baby’s First Show

“This weekend’s shows represent the group’s evening-length debut. It collects post-modern and process-driven pieces that they’ve performed in local festivals and split bills since the company formed in 2015. The night includes Figueroa stripping down to a jockstrap and rolling around on skates, a fight involving baguettes and bread rolls, a bit of wrestling, audience participation, improvisation, and all sorts of other serious contemporary dance."

"This wasn’t the traditional denouement, the winding down of actions, that we often see in live performance. Just like with many other times in the show, this defying of our expectations – along with enjoying beautiful dancing – could take our mind away from to-do lists and routines." - KATHRYN BOLAND about Baby’s First Show
