Business Casual


Partying comes after waking up, commuting, and working—classic rituals of the yuppie rat race as depicted, and twitted, in an avant-garde theater work co-created by Skidmore choreographer Debra Fernandez. Back when the full five-part show debuted in New York City in 1996, the Village Voice called it “a lyric meditation on the fierce geometry of ambition and desire.” This spring Fernandez reworked parts of the show as quirky performance art and staged it in the Tang Museum with Skidmore dance and theater majors. —SR
