VIM VIGOR DANCE COMPANY presents the World Premiere of "Separati"

VIM VIGOR DANCE COMPANY presents the World Premiere of "Separati"




Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center
29 Jay St.
Brooklyn, NY


Thursday, January 28, 2016 - 7:30pm daily through January 30, 2016




VIM VIGOR DANCE COMPANY presents the World Premiere of Separati at Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center, 29 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY, from January 28-30, 2016.  Performances: Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 for general seating and are available at http://vimvigorgka.bpt.me/.

Separati, a new work by Shannon Gillen, in collaboration with the performers, features dancers Jason Cianciulli, Martin Durov, Laja Field, Lavinia Vago, and Emma Whiteley, set to original scores by Martin Durov in collaboration with Gillen, with costumes by Joey Blaha, set design by JC Machine and Tool company, and lighting design by Barbara Samuels. The running time is 60 minutes.  

Separati enters the turbid psychic space of highway travel and anonymous companionship. Caught up at a midway point, five characters travel through the past, present and dark hallucinatory projections of the future. Stilled periods of waiting juxtapose wild physical bouts of surreal movement, as reality gives way to the imagination. What is the distance between where we have come from and where we want to go? Between what happens to us and who we are? Can the space between bodies and ideas ever be joined? And if not, can we exist in the middle ground of separation?

Separati was co-commissioned by New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble's AiR® 2015 Program, a residency providing artists with an incubator for collaborative exchange.
