at Joyce SoHo
ad hoc Ballet (Deborah Lohse, Artistic Director) presents its second evening-length
work, HER at Joyce SoHo (155 Mercer Street New York, NY 10012 ) on Thursday, May
14th at 8pm, Friday May 15th at 8pm and Saturday May 16th at 8pm Tickets are $18

352-3101 or (866) 811-4111.
HER is an evening length duet choreographed by Deborah Lohse to the music of Ladytron
and a commissioned score by Stefan Weisman. Scenes of misplaced
desire and coerced intimacy begin to penetrate the performance leading
to a public confession. Rejected displays of affection, interactions based on strict
conditions and beautifully frosted cupcakes are wedged in between highly technical
dancing capturing the cruelty between women attempting to define and redefine their
relationship on-stage.
Deborah Lohse, Artistic Director of ad hoc Ballet, is a classically trained
and dancer (Sacramento Ballet, San Diego Ballet and Monica Bill Barnes, Doug Elkins)
from Sacramento, California. HER will be performed by Candice Thompson (Milwaukee
Ballet) and Tammi Shamblin (Lydia Johnson Dance) and Deborah Lohse. Costumes by
Candice Thompson. Lighting by Amanda Ringger.
