This year’s five-week-long 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Festival, curated by Doug Varone, is titled Stripped/Dressed.

Varone has invited five fellow choreographers to “strip” their dances of costumes, lighting and theatrical effects and take it apart, showing and discussing its bare bones, exposing the actual dancers and their experience to the audience, and sharing some of the inspirational “seeds” from which the dance sprouted.

After seeing the work inside-out, the audience then watches it “dressed” and performed in its completed, theatrical form.

The festival runs February 17 through March 18.
