9/11: GroundWorks Dancetheater



Akron’s Ice House was built to keep things cool. The brick building was designed for storing blocks of ice, but lately local arts organizations have used it as a performance space. For the next two weekends, GroundWorks Dancetheater sets up shop for a series of performances of mostly new work, including the world premiere of a piece by artistic associate Amy Miller and Peter Swendsen, who teaches at Oberlin Conservatory of Music. (Swendsen collaborates regularly with dancers; his music is played on traditional instruments as well as digital media.) Also on the program are “Tipping Point” by Seattle-based KT Niehoff and artistic director David Shimotakahara’s signature piece “Open Seating.” Showtime is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through September 20 at the Ice House (129 N. Summit St., Akron, 216.691.3180). Tickets: $12-$18. — Michael Gill
