Set against the South Street Seaport ? at once a reminder of New York?s maritime past and its overwhelmingly mercantile present ? Hope & Anchor dredges up ghosts and modern-day denizens and sends them crashing together in a gruff display of bad temper, dashed hopes and delayed deliverance. Fleeting images and tarnished sea shanties conjure semblances of sailors, sirens and impending storms. Garfield and Morris (aided and abetted by several dance collaborators) remind us of our potent connection to the sea, and our reliance on its good faith. Free.
