Printz Dance Project Takes Modern Dance To Whole New Levels

The Printz Dance Project takes the idea of modern dance to a whole new level with their four-night performance of Hover Space. The show is a whirlwind of both chaotic and intimate movements played out, in part, across a second-level stage, suspended from the ceiling above Z Space’s performance floor.

Through a series of vignettes, dancers interpret life’s in-between spaces on the hovering floor, which is raised and lowered to create two parallel scenes. Hover Space combines challenging movements both on and hanging off the suspended stage while dancers simultaneously move underneath to music spun by an in-house DJ. The result is a gravity-defying meditation.
