In this evening-length work, Kimberly
Bartosik creates a choreographic play
on power, desire, and value. She constructs
a dialogue between art forms, as
the three dancers and one visual artist
perform their crafts live, alongside one
another, in multi-layered scenes.
During each performance, Brooklyn-based
collage artist Jonathan Allen
builds a work of art in real-time using
cheap objects (purchased from 99¢
stores) that the dancers offer and use to
attract him. As these objects move from
the dancers’ game of seduction and exchange
to become part of a “work of art,”
their significance and value transform.
Post-show talk will be moderated by Simon Dove, Crossing the Line co-curator and Director, Herberger Institute School of Dance, Arizona State University.
