You are my heat and glare

Suggested age for this work is 10 and up.

New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning performer and choreographer Kimberly Bartosik’s You are My Heat and Glare unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists. This evening-length work features a unique duet for Bartosik and her longtime collaborator, lighting designer Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Inspired by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water”, the work grapples with the rawness of intimacy, asking: What are we made of but hunger and rage? Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the extraordinary cast.
