9/11: GroundWorks Dancetheater

by

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
