Paula Hunter and JUMP!’s new work: 0 (Women) is a relay dance performed along 14th Street by young dancers in white with large zeros on their backs signifying the jobs that women have never held in the U.S. Viewers will notice the obvious – there has never been a woman U.S. President ¬– and the less obvious positions–Artistic Director: NYC Ballet¬– that women have never held. At once a political commentary and a celebration of endurance dance, 0 (Women) hopes to make a lasting impression.
