ACCIDENTAL SUITE by BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT - THIS PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED!
Barkin/Selissen Project's Accidental Suite is a dance meditation on connection. Born from raw experimentation and wrangled through structured improvisation, this performance installation builds relational tension through increasing levels of contact. Featuring 9 dancers and original score by Zac Selissen, this 75 minute celebration event will include approximately 30 minutes of live performance wrapped in a pre and post party. Accidental Suite evokes chance encounters, near misses, and the magnetic push and pull of relationships from start to finish. In these deeply alienating times, it taps into the most essential of human needs, relating to one another.
Accidental Suite originated as one of 5 dance films released as part of Barkin/Selissen Project’s Titles Project, an initiative designed to increase access and advocacy for dance and dance filmmaking. All films were conceptualized, choreographed, directed Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen, and then were presented online in May and June of 2019. Thousands of viewers across the globe selected Accidental Suite to be expanded for a live event, and March 20th is the culmination! With performances at 7pm and 9pm, audiences may move about this Neo-gothic 9th floor lounge and indulge in the expansive views of the Hudson River.
“We do our best to experience, demonstrate, and proliferate ways in which we can all connect and feel alive together.”
--Kyla Barkin, Co-Founder/Artistic Director, B/SP
