Barkin/Selissen Project's Winning Dance Film “Accidental Suite” Expanded for Live Performances at Riverside Church
Barkin/Selissen Project (B/SP)
Contemporary dance company Barkin/Selissen Project (B/SP) will premiere an extended version of Accidental Suite at Riverside Church on March 20th. In June of 2019, thousands of viewers across the globe experienced Accidental Suite as a short film, 1 of 5 dance films in B/SP’s Titles Project, and voted it to be expanded and presented live. With performances at 7pm and 9pm, audiences may move about this Neo-gothic lounge, sip wine and indulge in the expansive views of the Hudson River.
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 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.
