"Body Comes Apart" by Molly Lieber & Eleanor Smith
New York Live Arts
Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith present the New York City premiere of Body Comes Apart, an intimate duet based on a dynamic improvisational score. Lieber and Smith, who were nominated for a 2013 Bessie Award for Emerging Choreographer (Lieber also won a 2016 Outstanding Performer Bessie “for her introspective and tenacious performances”), focus their work on the bodily desire to heal oneself in connection with others.
Body Comes Apart is a declaration of love, commitment, catharsis, and rage. Continuing their ten year challenge of making work based in abstraction but in response to trauma, the work “… uses the potentialities of our bodies to challenge perceptions of female identity and to understand the multiplicity of joy, pain, and suffering,“ state the creators.
