Off-site at the Invisible Dog Art Center.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Jen Rosenblit--a choreographer lauded for her “Sly, tender and spatially sophisticated” (The New York Times) performance pieces--returns to Live Arts to present her newest work. Clap Hands is a mating call, a solo for the body that needs bodies. While conceptually a solo, the work will navigate its form through multiple bodies and objects. Each element constantly emerges from itself through a process of self-fertilization without resorting to pattern, ritual or husbandry. Fuchsia felted set pieces install the space, enacting a sort of still life and hailing the functional while demanding flamboyance. Clap Hands asks: Does the establishment of this new “thingness" shift the solo figure out of demand? Is intimacy still located within non-human forms?

Clap Hands is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Produced by Alexandra Rosenberg/Rosie Management.
