One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. “What makes it work,” says Glass, “is a shared sensibility.

Hornsby’s performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
