A tree grows in Brooklyn, but Green Space sprouts in Queens. With its ever-changing roster of choreographers and post-performance, wine-and-cheese discussions, the Long Island City dance studio’s periodical Fertile Ground showcases have become prized spots for emerging and established artists. Some of these performers also participate in Take Root, a monthly curated series providing dancers with opportunities to show a full (or half) evening of work paired with another performer. This Friday and Saturday, Green Space’s Take Root will feature a diverse, dynamic evening with the Isis Movement Company. This Manhattan-based troupe of classically trained modern dancers will premiere Universalis, a piece inspired by the complexities and varied elements of the solar system. The next day, a Fertile Ground session will include EstadoFlotante/Collaborative, Hazel Lever, Pareena Lim and Susie Thiel.
Details: Take Root: Isis Movement Company, Green Space, 37-24 24th Street, Long Island City, December 13th and December 14th, 8 pm, $15; and Fertile Ground, Green Space, December 15th, 7 pm, $10.
