Abby Z and the New Utility at the Fisher Center Close your eyes and imagine you’re at a volleyball game—hear the sneakers squeaking, the players grunting. It is this gymnasium soundtrack that accompanies Abby Zbikowski’s modern dance “Abandoned Playground,”—nine athletically clothed performers move with frenetic, synchronized intensity to the sound of their own stomping and shouting. Tension rises as dancers run, tumble, and kick their way on and off stage. Through them you understand dancing as a sport as well as an art form. Zbikowski won the 2017 Juried Bessie Award for her works in contemporary dance, which focus more on physical rigor than a pristine finished product. Catch the daring performance on March 31 at 7:30pm or April 1 at 2pm at Bard College’s Fisher Center. Tickets are $25. (845) 758-6822. Fishercenter.bard.edu. —Briana Bonfiglio WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
