IN PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY
John Jay College Rooftop Plaza, 860 11th Avenue, NYC
July 27 and 28, 2016 at 7pm
CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Kinesis Project dance theatre present IN PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY, a lush outdoor performance shaped specifically for the gorgeous rooftop plaza at John Jay College, 860 11th Avenue, NYC on July 27 and 28, 2016 at 7pm. Tickets are $25 online at http://kinesisproject.eventbrite.com/?aff=MT, or $30 at the door.
The performance utilizes beautiful, fierce, expansive, playful and gestural movement to pursue the imperfection of memory. Through the choreography of bodies, image, space and sound on the open-air rooftop terrace, the dance unfolds before the audience. Riker has created a full experience with live music, vibrant costumes by designer Asa Thornton and hundreds of feet of fabric cut by visual artist Celeste Cooning.
Kinesis Project dance theater has been called “a moveable feast, in more ways than one” by critic Eva Yaa Assantwaa.
