November 4th-7th, Thursday-Sunday and November 10th-14th, Wednesday–Sunday, at 8:30 PM

HERE Arts Center is proud to present the light-hearted dance theatre group Ex.Pgirl’s multi-disciplinary theatrical experience, Waving Hello at HERE (145 6th Avenue at Spring Street, Main Stage).

Waving Hello is a highly physical dance theatre piece full of whimsical dances, songs, language games, scenes, and video.  Reveling in iconic pop American images of surf culture while riding the tough waves of New York’s urban landscape Ex.Pgirl creates a humorous, entertaining, and touching look into how four international women assert their place in America. Ex.Pgirl seeks to subvert the idealized American experience and create new ideas of nationalism. Each scene offers one interpretation of America, then sweeps it away with a contrasting perspective. In a magical world where a simple plastic box is transformed into a surfboard, a bathtub, and an instrument of torture, Waving Hello is a feast of visual creativity where the simplest of objects become imbued with resonant meaning.

Tickets are $20 ($45 advance tix for the benefit performance on November 4th) and can be purchased by calling (212) 868-4444.  For more information, please go to
