There is a section of Geography when all seven dancers are lifting and tugging one another by the harnesses around their waists. One tries to jump forward, but four others pull her upward and backward, then lower her into a position of repose. She looks like a leaf blown around in slow motion. The dancers also shout, play complicated games of hopscotch, and get in each other's way. Choreographer Molly Scott says the dance is about "the stress of proximity." Part peaceful, part angry, Geography looks like autumn in the city. (On the Boards, 100 W Roy St, 217-9888. 8 pm, $18.)
