Immersive Performance Examines the Heart
8-week run at Arts@Renaissance begins January 22, 2014

"Bottom line: It might be the most surprising and innovative thing
you’ve seen all year.” – Theater is Easy

"Deeply sensual, incredibly physically intimate." -- Woman Around Town

"Wonderful…You will be touched by the performers, both literally and
figuratively." -- This Week in New York

"An opportunity to viscerally understand the importance of the heart,
and an opportunity to feel alive…a refreshing opportunity to play, to
sense the bodies around you and react honestly and impulsively."
-- Showbusiness Weekly


After an acclaimed run this summer on Governor's Island, Jody
Oberfelder Projects once again invites audiences to experience their
hearts from the inside out with a new production of 4CHAMBERS.
Created, directed and choreographed by Jody Oberfelder, this immersive
blend of dance, theater, film and visual installation runs
January 22 - March 22, 2014 at Brooklyn's Arts@Renaissance.

4CHAMBERS is a sensorial journey into the human heart. The performance
space is transformed into an intimate environment with corridors that
function as arteries and veins leading to four discrete performance
chambers. Guided by six cast members, an audience of 12 circulates
through the space, monitoring their own hearts throughout this
interactive multimedia performance.

4CHAMBERS features a rotating cast of live performers: Megan Bascom,
Zachary Denison, Rayvawn Johnson, Joey Kipp, Mary Madsen, Shane
Rutkowski, Mercedes Searer, Lily Bo Shapiro, and on-film performances
by Ishmael Houston Jones, Edward Einhorn, Dr. Wendy Suzuki, Dr. Andre
Fenton, Sarah Trignano, Lonnie Poupard, ChristinaNoel Reaves, Jake
Szczypek, and Jessica Weiss video by Jason Bahling, lighting by Kryssy
Wright, sets by Juergen Riehm, stage manager: Katie Houff, music by
Matt McBane, Richard Einhorn, Jonathan Melville Pratt
and dramaturgy by Pele Bauch.

Recognized as "full of invention and wit," by The New York Times, Jody
Oberfelder Dance Projects combines strength and virtuosic movement
with levity and whimsical physical imagination. The company has found
an international audience at venues in Europe and Asia, from the
Centre National de la Danse in Paris, Die Werkstatt in Dusseldorf, The
Pusan National Theater in Korea, The 20th Annual International
Festival of Modern Dance in Seoul, to The Belgrade Dance Festival with
performances at The Belgrade State Theater in Serbia and the State
Theater of Montenegro in Podorica. The company has performed

Amsterdam, MASS MoCA, Washington College in Maryland, and The Yard in
Martha's Vineyard and throughout New York City at venues including
