Emerging Artists Theatre presents a limited engagement of Sarah Hollister's Sisters' Dance, which begins previews at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in Manhattan Feb. 6.

Directed by Paul Adams, the work — billed as "an intricate dance between dissimilar sisters" — will officially open Feb. 9 and play a limited run through March 2. The five-person cast comprises Blanche Cholet, Laura Fois, Janice Mann, Nick Ruggeri and Chuck Saculla.

Sisters' Dance, according to press notes, concerns "two estranged sisters, Fleur and Alice, who reunite on the family farm after the death of their mother. Long held resentment simmers to the surface when they realize their mother's will is still forcing them to cooperate. When Alice's husband and Fleur's hustler boyfriend enter the picture the sisters' dance becomes one of betrayal and seduction. Fleur and Alice will be forever changed in this searing drama about sisterhood, forgiveness, and a mother's love."

The design team includes scenic designer Brian Garber, costume designer Melanie Blythe, lighting designer G. Benjamin Swope and sound designer Kristyn R. Smith. Stephanie Weisner is the property master, and Amanda Schulze is the stage manager.

Show times are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 5 PM and Sundays at 2 PM.

The Baruch Performing Arts Center is located in Manhattan at 55 Lexington Avenue. Tickets, priced $50 (general admission) and $25 (students with ID), are available by visiting www.eatheatre.org or by calling (866) 811-4111.
