What has four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs in the evening? Baye & Asa’s 4|2|3 focuses on the impacts of climate change using the Riddle of the Sphinx as a symbolic structure. The piece is divided into three sections for three generations of performers who examine the intergenerational cooperation necessary to acknowledge this existential crisis. Reflecting on humanity’s industrial history, we build new worlds on less oppressive, less extractive, and more sustainable foundations.

Selected in 2022 as one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch,” Baye & Asa is a company creating movement art projects directed and choreographed by Amadi “Baye” Washington and Sam “Asa” Pratt.  The two grew up together in New York City, and hip-hop and African dance languages are the foundation of their technique.
