Baruch Performing Arts Center presents the New York premiere of Abdul Latif's EYESPOT from March 26-28, 2020 at 7:30pm at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues), NYC. Tickets are $11-$26 and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/ALatifEyespot.
Choreographer Abdul Latif premieres EYESPOT, an evening of original work set to classical Brahms compositions overlaid by live vocal rhythms. Latif's hybrid choreography embodies a ferocious intricacy and fearless physicality, tracing a movement etymology that connects multi-armed Hindu god modality and theorizations on da Vinci's Vitruvian Man with intersections between classical ballet port de bras and house vogueing. In EYESPOT, Latif remixes Brahms' Three songs for 6 part Choir, Op. 42 with vocal rhythm percussion compositions, performed live by Latif himself, and accompanied by bassist Ron Wasserman (New York City Ballet Orchestra member and New York Jazz Philharmonic Orchestra founder).
