Exploration is exactly what Mr. Pouffer wants. "I would like us to be seen as a laboratory," he said during a rehearsal of "Hammer," his two-part work inspired by Nietzsche's "Twilight of the Idols," which will run until May 21. (Reviewing the work for The New York Times on Wednesday, John Rockwell was not enthusiastic, calling the movement vocabulary "commonplace.") "We have the luxury of giving people time to work. They can use the stage as much as they like. I want to create a place where it's O.K. for a choreographer to experiment. We are not trying to fit in somewhere; we are trying to create something new, work that you might not see elsewhere."
