About Babe (Expansion Pack)
BABE (Expansion Pack) is a brand new postmodern dance duet from D.C.’s most exciting and unique performance company, darlingdance. The movement is at once abstract and deeply intimate, curious and clear in purpose. darlingdance is known for taking risks with its audience’s emotions, and BABE (Expansion Pack) is no exception. The movement is funny, endearing, off-putting and unapologetic. Originally inspired by a series of site-specific bus stop performances, the piece draws further inspiration from Torpedo Factory’s beautiful and unusual space. After the performance, there will be a rare opportunity to engage in a Q&A with darlingdance’s Artistic Director Hayley Cutler, who otherwise likes her work to remain a mystery!
darlingdance is a project-based modern dance company founded in Washington, DC in August 2010 by choreographer Hayley Cutler. Since its founding, darlingdance has presented work extensively throughout DC and beyond, and has engaged in collaboration with a number of local musicians and artists.
