Kimberly Bartosik: Ecsteriority4 (Part 2) (US Premiere)
May 21–23 at 8 PM, May 24 at 3 PM
Abrons Arts Center
Ecsteriority4 (Part 2) continues Kimberly Bartosik’s artistic research into questions surrounding violence specific to American culture. Bartosik has constructed a trio within a landscape of power and desire, where irrational impulses create a feeling of urgency and the inevitability of violation. There is no resolution in this dance. It happens, and then it’s over, and, like violence, the act is instantaneous while the remnants never disappear. Ecsteriority4 (Parts 1 & 2) will premiere in full at the Chocolate Factory Theater in September 2016.
