Bear/Skin Solo Performance By Keith Hennessy says

Bear/Skin is a dance that is politically motivated by the tension between killer cops and virgin sacrifice, between indigenous culture and modernist appropriation. It has (almost) nothing to do with gay bears and everything to do with The Rite of Spring, teddy bear shamanism, the reconstruction of ritual bear dances, action movies, suicide economics, and the poetry of springtime.

Bear/Skin solo performance by Keith Hennessy is co-presented with New Expressive Works/Studio 2-Zoomtopia.
