28 problems is a diptych dance by Dayna Hanson that uses movement, translation theories and GIFs to transcode content from one language, mathematics, into another language, dance. Based on a discarded sheet of hand-written calculus equations, 28 problems features Hanson with experimental theater actor Jim Fletcher (The Evening, Gatz) along with dancers Madison Haines and Julia Sloane. 28 problems will premiere at The Chocolate Factory Theatre in Long Island City, NY, during the 2020-2021 season.
*Dayna Hanson will also be holding open observation drop-in periods during her rehearsals all week from 3:30-5pm at ADF’s Studios.*
