Tickets on-sale December 2019
Tickets for the Spring 2020 season will become available in December 2019.
Radioactive Practice is the newest evening length work by choreographer Abby Zbikowski and her company, Abby Z and the New Utility. This genre-bending dance for ten performers breaks down the physicality, socio-cultural functions and psychological states of an eclectic range of movement forms as a means to expose and challenge the cultural and aesthetic collisions intrinsic in the practice of dance in the contemporary world. This work pushes its collaborative team from the United States, Senegal, and Canada beyond perceived limits as they create a new tradition built from the inner workings of established forms, pulling from personal histories with West African dance, hip-hop, modern, and basketball, among others. With an original sound score by experimental hip-hop artist and fellow Live Feed artist Raphael Xavier, this group work is set to premiere in the 2019-2020 season at New York Live Arts.
The Live Feed creative residency program supports and nurtures the development of new work with residencies and commissions generated over two years.
Lead support of Live Feed is generously provided by Partners for New Performance and Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
