Choreographers Amanda Loulaki and Levi Gonzalez share an ivening premiering two new works.
Amanda Loulaki’s latest solo work explores the ways that the experience of fragmented time through imagery and the body can reconstruct reality. “Bereft of memory a person becomes the prisoner of an illusory existence, falling out of time he is unable to seize his own link with the outside world.” — Andrei Tarkovsky, Sculpting in Time
Levi Gonzalez creates a solo for dancer Natalie Green, in which he “performs” the role of director onstage to make transparent the tension and intimacy of the relationships among choreographer, performer, and audience in live performance.
Both works feature lighting design by Joe Levasseur. Featuring music for Amanda Loulaki by Giannis Aggelakas and by Justin Luchter for Levi Gonzalez. Dramaturg Susan Mar Landau collaborates with Gonzalez.
The Levi Gonzalez work was created, in part, through the Artist in Residence Program at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange with support from public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
The Amanda Loulaki piece was created in part through a Residency at Abrons Arts Center.
This program is made possible by support from the Jerome Foundation and The Greenwall Foundation. Dance programs at The Kitchen are made possible with generous support from The Harkness Foundation for Dance, the Jerome Robbins Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
