Kate Weare Company in a NY Premiere at BAM
As the first ever artist-in-residence at BAM Fisher, Kate Weare had her work cut out for her. Working in a black box-type space, Dark Lark is the result of Weare and her company’s explortion of how this intimate setting creates new and intensified meanings for the dancing bodies that stand just feet (sometimes, inches) away from the audience. Friday’s show will also feature a post-show talkback with members of the Kate Weare Company, moderated by Deborah Jowitt.
