Live Artery: You are my heat and glare

Presenters RSVP Here.

Excerpts from You are my heat and glare and a new work-in-progress.

Suggested age for this work is 10 year and older.

“What are we made of but hunger and rage?” is a question provoked by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water” and explored by “Bessie” award-winner Kimberly Bartosik in You are my heat and glare. This evening-length work unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists, including a duet for light and body featuring Bartosik and her longtime collaborator Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the cast.

Live Artery is an annual event at New York Live Arts during the APAP conference, connecting dance and body-based artists, curators and presenters, Live Artery fuels a vibrant, nationwide network in support of compelling artists and ideas.

You are my heat and glare is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts.

You are my heat and glare was created, in part, with support from the Jerome Foundation; New Music USA; FUSED, French US Exchange in Dance; and American Dance Abroad. The work was developed, in part, through creative residencies at Jacob’s Pillow, Mount Tremper Arts, Merce Cunningham Trust, and the Center for Performance Research.
