Live Artery: Within between

New York Live Arts Theater
Presenters RSVP Here.

John Jasperse’s Within between (2014) closed New York Live Arts’ 2013-14 season to critical acclaim that described it as a “delightfully dizzying piece” with “skeins of carefree, virtuosic dancing” (The New York Times). The work, which returns to Live Arts remounted in full for a one-night-only performance during Live Artery, received two 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards, for Outstanding Production and Outstanding Performer (Stuart Singer). Jasperse, a 2014 Doris Duke Artist Award recipient, is a choreographer often referred to with adjectives that include brainy, formal and austere. In Within between, Jasperse sought to simultaneously embrace and resist the habits of his own history, creating a catalytic mating of sensibilities that traverses what are often seen as aesthetic boundaries between mutually distinct terrains within the broader cultural landscape. Within between features dancers Maggie Cloud, Simon Courchel, Burr Johnson and Stuart Singer; lighting design by Lenore Doxsee; an original, commissioned score by composer Jonathan Bepler; and dramaturgical assistance by Ariel Osterweis.
