'lectric Eye



ATTENTION PRESENTERS: If you have not already received an email from Live Arts with access to complimentary/discounted tickets, please COMPLETE THIS FORM and we will be in touch shortly.

‘lectric Eye uses the connection between music and movement to push physical and sonic limits, both as a collective and as individuals. This 60-minute piece premiered in February 2022 and responds to collective and personal loss and isolation, drawing attention to the human body’s potential for persistence, resistance, and power.


Choreography: Joanna Kotze in collaboration with the performers
Music Composition & Performance: Ryan Seaton
Lighting Design: Kathy Kaufmann
Costumes Design: Christian Joy
Original song ‘Black Fly’ by Circuit des Yeux

Kriegsman Creative Residency at Dance Place, the Resident Artist Program at Movement Research supported by the Rosin Fund, and The Nathan M. Clark Foundation. Special thanks to all our Kickstarter backers for their support!

Presented during the annual Association of Performing Arts Professionals conference (APAP), the 2022 edition of Live Artery features work of New York Live Arts’ residency artists and curated guests. Live Artery will present in-person performances and excerpts or works-in-progress showings in the studio and theater at New York Live Arts.

Live Artery has evolved to become a space for artists to network and share their work with presenters from around the world which has led to commissions, tours and the building of long-term relationships.

‘lectric Eye is made possible, in part, by the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) at Florida State University.
