As its inaugural program, The Industry Lab presented Gest: Two solo performers from complementing artistic disciplines — dancer/choreographer Danielle Agami (Ate9 Dance Company) and experimental vocalist/composer Odeya Nini.
Together these vibrant performers and creators explored the meanings at the root of the word “gest.” The evening featured solos, duets, layers, colors, images and forms of the human body and voice.
