WITH CARE is a visceral, moving new work for two dancers (Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber, both former stars of the Batsheva Dance Company) and two violinists (Keir GoGwilt and Miranda Cuckson). Building on the cross-disciplinary work of A STUDY ON EFFORT (“chilling, thrilling rawness” - The New York Times), WITH CARE investigates the dynamics of caregiving, carelessness, and loss through a theatrical fusion of dance, music, and spoken word.

“WITH CARE poses [questions] of… how we relate with and care for each other in an injurious world; how we love and accommodate and seek slivers of solace when true understanding remains impossible… so eloquently did they probe the struggle between presentation of an ideal form and the fallibilities of flesh.” - The Boston Musical Intelligencer
