Table‘s focus is a rolling—surprise—table fitted with several audio speakers and a conveyor belt on top. In front of a lime green scrim, one to three dancers perform a kind of moving sculptural sequence. The slowly crawling treadmill the covers part of the table provides some interesting effects, allowing one dancer to slide between another’s legs, or imitate water headed over the falls. It’s accompanied by a booming bass-heavy sound score. The set for Some People consists of garish paintings of body parts covering the floor and upstage wall. The movements include “rude” behavior—smelling armpits, etc.—and smiles plaster the dancers’ faces, but the forced humor falls short. But when the group moves ensemble, it gains a power and momentum that’s otherwise missing in Colker’s choppy phrasing here.
