A Manifesto for the post-cynical, YES is an irreverent romp through the turbulent history of modern dance. Known for her fearless approach to controversial issues, Performer/Creator Linnea Swan rigorously integrates theatre, dance, and bouffon to address Yvonne Rainer’s 1965 No Manifesto and its legacy on the current state of contemporary performance.

YES is part of a double bill with A Room to Perform.

Part of the SummerWorks Presentations programming – offering you a snapshot of contemporary performance in 2018. A vital collection of new theatre, dance, music, and live art works from across the country.
