Techniques with Kimberly Bartosik
Sunday, March 28 at 12:30-2pm EDT
*Join Kimberly Bartosik in conversation with Amelia Uzategui Bonilla, Julie Mayo, and Christy Funsch on Sunday, March 28 at 6pm EDT
ABOUT THE CLASS:
“Move here and talk with me” is part of my “Walking Lectures” series. In this virtual class, we move and converse continuously for 45 minutes. After a brief warm up, I will propose a movement and conversational prompt which we will pass back and forth, to and from each other, in constant engagement. We will end with a brief warm down and check in. In this class, we will reflect on the state of our bodies and psyches in real time, getting sweaty and breathing together, while connecting through the ether.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Choreographer, performer, educator, essayist Kimberly Bartosik creates viscerally provocative, ferociously intimate choreographic projects that dramatically illuminate the ephemeral nature of performance while critically, tenderly, and violently etching away at deeply distressing threads of our society. Her recent piece, through the mirror of their eyes (Live Arts, 2020) was nominated for 2020 Bessie Awards for Outstanding Performance & Outstanding Performer (Burr Johnson). Recent awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship; Virginia B. Toulmin Women Leaders in Dance Fellowship at Center for Ballet and the Arts; MAP Fund, National Dance Project; USAI; and Foundation for Contemporary Arts. Her articles Give Artists a Home! and It’s Time to Reimagine Dance Funding, were recently featured in Dance Magazine.
