Park Slope-based Eva Dean Dance returns to the New York International Fringe Festival with "Booted." This kickin’ collection of works is part of FringeHIGH, a showcase geared toward young adult audiences and families.

Dean’s pieces explore the peculiarities of growing up female. In "Booted," a gaggle of women wearing sequined gowns, combat boots and high heels on their hands stomp out flamenco-inspired rhythms in humorous games of one-upmanship; in "Welcome Back" she explores cliques.

Dean is also interested in environments. In "Away From One’s Front" the performers descend on the stage with the ordered chaos of a rainstorm, all while traveling backwards. "Moon Garden" transports us to an otherworldly dimension through the use of small, bouncy balls.

The music is by Peter Gabriel, Alloy Orchestra and Middle Eastern artists. The Eva Dean Dance company members will be joined by five additional guest performers.

"Booted" will be performed at the New York International Fringe Festival, Washington Square Methodist Church, (135 West Fourth St. in Manhattan) Aug. 8 at 8 pm, Aug. 12 at 9:30 pm, Aug. 14 at 8 pm, Aug. 16 at 2:15 pm and Aug. 20 at 3 pm. Tickets are $15. Teen discount available. For tickets, call the box office at (212) 279-4488.
