You are my heat and glare (NYC Premiere!)
February 26, 27, 28, March 1 at 7:30p
“What are we made of but hunger and rage?” is a question provoked by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water” and explored by “Bessie” award-winner Kimberly Bartosik in You are my heat and glare. This evening-length work unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists, including a duet for light and body featuring Bartosik and her longtime collaborator Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the cast.
You are my heat and glare is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts.
You are my heat and glare was created, in part, with support from the Jerome Foundation; New Music USA; FUSED, French US Exchange in Dance; and American Dance Abroad. The work was developed, in part, through creative residencies at Jacob’s Pillow, Mount Tremper Arts, Merce Cunningham Trust, and the Center for Performance Research.
