On Sunday, September 18, 2016, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents excerpts of Kate Weare Company’s: Marksman with an original score by saxophonist Curtis Robert Macdonald at 7:30pm.
Choreographer Kate Weare's newest work, Marksman, zeroes in on our ability to precisely intuit one another with senses remote from modern consciousness yet imperative to our survival. Dancers perform excerpts from the new piece prior to its premiere at the Joyce Theater in New York in November 2016. Weare and Macdonald will hold a moderated discussion after the performance.
Fall 2016 priority tickets and General tickets are currently on sale. $40, $35 members and Friends of Works & Process. Marksman is a part of the Works & Process at the Guggenheim Series. For more information visit: https://www.guggenheim.org/event/kate-weare-company-marksman
ABOUT KATE WEARE COMPANY
Kate Weare Company is an New York-based contemporary dance company known for its startling combination of formal choreographic values and visceral, emotional interpretation. Weare’s dances explore contemporary views of intimacy, both tender and stark, by drawing on our most basic urges to move and decode movement. Established to showcase Artistic Director Kate Weare’s intimate, raw, and intense choreography in 2005, the company’s working method stems from a close communion in the studio that mines the body’s innate capacity for truth-telling: our need for safety, our longing to connect, our desire to be seen, our irrepressible intelligence about who we are as individuals. Kate Weare cultivates the potent individuality of each of her dancers to unleash a chemistry onstage that is both heartfelt and seductive. The company has been presented nationwide by Jacob’s Pillow, American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, ODC Theater, ArtPower at UC San Diego, Ringling Museum of Art, Dance Celebration Philadelphia, Spring to Dance St. Louis, Northrop Concerts and Lectures at the University of Minnesota, Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, among other venues and festivals. In New York, the company has been presented at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Joyce Theater, Fall for Dance at New York City Center, The 92nd St. Y, Symphony Space, The Skirball Center, Dancemopolitan at Joe’s Pub, Dance Theater Workshop and Danspace Project.
