APAP, the annual trade show for international performing artists and presenters, launches this week, and with it hundreds of showcases displaying talent in spaces ranging from the gargantuan to the miniature. Into the latter category falls Rude World, Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith’s improvisation-based duet. The pair, working together since 2006, use movement as a way to understand feeling. Their two often naked bodies struggle with and support each other. Tonight they bring their storied collaboration back to Queens. To accommodate the scheduling vagaries of APAP delegates, each of their six forty-five-minute performances starts at a different hour; surely one of them will work for you.
Jan. 7-12, 6 p.m., 2015
