Event description
Contemporary dance performance by NYC-based choreographer Kimberly Bartosik exploring losing yourself in ecstasy, ritual, faith, and desire.

About this Event

In I hunger for you, deeply internalized forces of faith, violence, life force, and compassion pulse through bodies that exist in a mesmerizing, starkly beautiful, often dangerous world.

In a world defined by light and is absence, the work looks deeply into the heart of the impulse to lose oneself in ecstasy, ritual, desire, and searching, riding an edge of barely controlled abandon and vibrating stillness.

“Like the zone inhabited by whirling dervishes, Kimberly Bartosik’s passionate “I hunger for you” reaches for moments of mystical power through relentless motion.” - Martha Sherman, DanceViewTimes

“Kimberly Bartosik is one of the most intriguing descendants of Merce Cunningham.” - Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine

About Kimberly Bartosik:

Choreographer, performer, educator Kimberly Bartosik creates viscerally provocative, ferociously intimate choreographic projects that are built upon the development of a virtuosic movement language, rigorous conceptual explorations, and the creation of highly theatricalized environments. Her work, which is deeply informed by literature and cinema, dramatically illuminates the ephemeral nature of performance.

Kimberly’s most recent project, I hunger for you, was commissioned and presented by BAM Next Wave Festival 2018 and LUMBERYARD Center for Film & Performing Arts, through an inaugural year BAM/LUMBERYARD partnership. She is a 2017-20 New York Live Arts Live Feed Residency Artist where she is developing a new work to premiere at NYLA in March 2020. In NYC her work has also been presented by American Realness, FIAF’s Crossing the Line Festival, Abrons Art Center, Gibney, Danspace Project, The Kitchen, La Mama, and BEAT Festival. Kimberly has toured to Wexner Arts Center, Supersense: Festival of the Ecstatic (Melbourne, Australia), Dance Place, American Dance Festival, The Yard, MASS MoCA/Jacob’s Pillow, The Flynn, Bates Dance Festival, Church, Columbia College (2020), Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (2020), Mount Tremper Arts, Festival Rencontres Chorégraphique Internationales de Seine-Saint Denis, Artdanthe Festival, and others.
