Taryn Vander Hoop is performing with her company Summation Dance at the 92nd Street Y on Friday, February 13 and Saturday, February 14 at 8pm and Sunday, February 15 at 3pm.
Summation Dance company, founded by Sumi Clements and Taryn Vander Hoop, is a New York City-based modern dance company creating exciting, innovative, and highly physical work. 
“Shift” questions perceptions of reality. Intrigued by, and in response to, notions of alternate planes of existence and parallel universes, Clements explores the different facets of fate and its outcomes. “At the Hour” is inspired by prophetic events that took place in Garabandal, Spain in the 1960s, and their relevance to our current global sociopolitical climate. The work will explore the spiritual nature of these events and the ramifications reflected in the upheaval currently seen around the world.
