SAWTOOTH creates dreamy, movement-based performance with humor, misdirection, and a sharp, hypnotic physicality.
SAWTOOTH debuted in NYC at The Tank in 2009. SAWTOOTH has performed across NYC in venues such as BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dixon Place, and Joyce SoHo.
SAWTOOTH has received funding and support from such organizations as the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council, the 92Y Harkness Space Grant Program, and New York Foundation for the Arts. SAWTOOTH has been in residence at the North American Cultural Laboratory in the Catskills, NY, and La Maison du Butoh Blanc (Normandy, France).
Dancers: Mandy Hackman, Chelsea Rodriguez, Elaine Ruscetta, Anahita Sarabhai
