The How


July 25- Aug 2 2019


IN RESIDENCE: July 23 – August 19, 2019

What We Do is a movement theater piece developed by the artists in the rehearsal process. The movements are explored in improvisation.

It is an exploration of what it means to be a part of a whole and what it means to be alone; What We Do is an exploration of attention, attraction, separation, and oneness.

“Compelling, organic choreography…It moved me deeply.” Joshua Crone, Outerstage

Visceral, simple and theatrical, Ionina’s work is characterized by the unique methodology she employs with her dancer/actors. Ionina is a co-founder of The How, an International Performance Ensemble that was created to provide opportunities for actors to play and explore new ways of creating by bringing disciplined artists together from around the world.

IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village,  IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, New York State Council on the Arts, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.

PLEASE NOTE: All sales final and there is no late seating at IRT Theater.
