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.

Maria Hassabi tackles opening nights at The Kitchen

Choreographers everywhere will probably agree wholeheartedly with Maria Hassabi when she says that premiering a new work is not easy. In her latest piece, cheekily titled PREMIERE, Hassabi confronts the opening night complex head-on by dissecting the moment when art and audience (and critics) first collide.
