Vengeance Can Wait

Dark, twisted and touching, the couple come to understand the “kinks” in their relationship – and embrace them.

“Ms. Christa has a way of making dance and theater happen without seeming to lift a finger”
– Jennifer Dunning

In anticipation of their two year-old child’s fiftieth birthday, two older parents create a digital video – part time capsule, part time travel – and fill it with love and living memories, as a gift for their child to open in the future.

Award-winning choreographers and performers Gabri Christa and Niles Ford have collaborated and danced together for the last 15 years. This evening length multi-media performance incorporates moments from their past and integrates lots of new. Through dance, spoken and sung text, the performers inhabit a vivid and visceral world conjured by video artist and Obie Award winner Marilys Ernst and live accompaniment by Ted Graves of Burnt Sugar.

More about Gabri Christa: Gabri’s work has been performed in spaces in New York and around the country. She is the winner of numerous awards and honors including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and was an artist in residence at Dance Theater Workshop. he currently teaches at the School of the Staten Island Ballet.
