Radioactive Practice (Work-in-Progress)
The ensemble work of Abby Zbikowski’s company, Abby Z and the New Utility, share their newest creation developed from their rigorous physical practice and boundless mental capacities. Drawing on distinct histories in hip-hop, modern dance, West African, Tap, synchronized swimming, ice skating, and House, the corps explores the conflicts and possibilities created from aesthetic and cultural collisions in order to address questions of cultural bias and misunderstanding through form. Abby Z and the New Utility are made up artists from the United States to Senegal to Taiwan, and the unique physical history and knowledge of the artists are brought to the forefront in Radioactive Practice, which will have it’s full premiere at Live Arts in 2020.
