One of the pleasures of “Underneath Where We Are” is its gentleness; Ms. O’Con allows the audience to come to her, sometimes choosing to hide as much as she makes known.

Ms. O’Con’s smart and sensitive use of the space extended to the finish...The River to River Festival’s old mission of transforming downtown sites and its new mission of giving dance works extended life were here both fulfilled.

Underneath Where We Are was presented by The Chocolate Factory Theater as part of their Visiting Artist Program. This work was also created, in part, with a space grant from BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange with support from the Dance and Theater Programs of the New York State Council of the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. It was later remounted to an new site specific location as part of NYC River to River Festival, produced by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
