CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Kinesis Project dance theatre present IN PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY, a lush outdoor performance shaped specifically for the gorgeous rooftop plaza at John Jay College, 860 11th Avenue, NYC on July 27 and 28, 2016 at 7pm. Tickets are $25 online at http://kinesisproject.eventbrite.com/?aff=MT, or $30 at the door.
The performance utilizes beautiful, fierce, expansive, playful and gestural movement to pursue the imperfection of memory. Through the choreography of bodies, image, space and sound on the open-air rooftop terrace, the dance unfolds before the audience. Riker has created a full experience with live music, vibrant costumes by designer Asa Thornton and hundreds of feet of fabric cut by visual artist Celeste Cooning.
On July 13, 2106 at 6:30pm, Melissa Riker, Artistic Director & Choreographer of Kinesis Project dance theatre, will host REVEALING DANCES, an opportunity for audience members to get a sneak peek of IN PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY and talk with the choreographer about the process and insights into creating dances for outdoor and public spaces. This will be an open rehearsal setting followed by a group discussion with light refreshments.
REVEALING DANCES is a free event, but reservations are required at http://kinesisprojectrevealingdances.eventbrite.com. Those that attend REVEALING DANCES will receive a discount code to purchase tickets for the evening length performance of IN PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY.
