From performing at the Autumn Skate Bowl in Greenpoint to collaborating with art punks Japanther and rowdy electropop gang Chicks on Speed, dance duo robbinschilds (formed in 2003 by Sonya Robbins and Layla Childs) have quickly proven themselves to be the go-to team for fresh, exceedingly hip choreography. Tonight, they present their latest full-length group piece, Sonya and Layla Go Camping. Blending live performance and video, the work is inspired partly by Jacques Rivette’s 1974 surrealist film Céline and Julie Go Boating, about two very different young women whose lives are mysteriously linked.
