Interested in subtle shifts in the body and micro-movements that reveal hidden sensations, Canadian choreographer Catherine Gaudet combines raw, precise corporeality, dramatic tension, obsessiveness, and the grotesque in this arresting work for the company of five.
This performance contains nudity.
92Y’s pioneering history in dance has made the Harkness Dance Center an epicenter for the art form throughout the world. And this season the world comes to the Harkness Dance Festival, in five weekends welcoming and showcasing five of the most influential dancers and choreographers from Korea, Canada, Northern Ireland, Japan, and Spain—each one is shaping the future of dance in their native country and beyond, and each brings a work never before seen in America.
“… In this powerful work, the intense passage between bodily states and the total dedication of the five performers brings us to the brink of catharsis.”
Mélanie Carpentier, Le Devoir (Montreal)
