heat, glare, Bartosik

Let me take a moment, between APAP shows, to remind you to keep posted on a work-in-development from dancer-choreographer Kimberly BartosikYou are my heat and glare, set to premiere in the fall of this year. The choreographer and artistic director of Kimberly Bartosik/daela offered 55 minutes from her evening-length ensemble piece today at Gibney Dance Center for APAP. The work has greatly intensified and darkened, intriguingly, since I saw early versions of a couple of its segments last year.

Like a book of strange, compelling short tales, You are my heat and glare presents enigmatic duos--Bartosik and Roderick Murray; Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann, who are exceptional and terrifying; and the engaging vocalists Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder--whose relationships are contained, shaped, revealed or rendered inscrutable by Murray's in-the-moment lighting manipulations. And that's quite a bag of tricks Murray has, too.
