85 South Oxford Street Fort Greene,
A co-production with Joanna Kotzee
Irondale presents the world premiere of ‘lectric Eye, an evening-length dance performance choreographed by Joanna Kotze in collaboration with dancers Wendell Gray II, Molly Heller, and Symara Johnson, composer/musician Ryan Seaton, and lighting designer Kathy Kaufmann. ‘lectric Eye responds to collective and personal loss and isolation and draws attention to the human body’s potential for persistence, resistance, and power.
Joanna is a Brooklyn-based, Bessie award-winning choreographer, dancer, and teacher who has been part of the New York dance community since 1998. She creates highly physical dance performances through a collaborative, multi-disciplinary process, presenting ways to look at effort, labor, humor, violence, unpredictability, and beauty through movement as well as the body’s relationship to sound, light, and space. Her work has been presented by New York Live Arts, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Danspace Project, the National Arts Center in Ottawa, The Wexner Center, The Yard, Bates Dance Festival, Velocity Dance Center, American Dance Institute, and others. For a full bio and more, please visit www.joannakotze.com.
The development of ‘lectric Eye has been made possible by The Bogliasco Foundation, The Yard, EtM Choreographer + Composer Residency, Loghaven Artist Residency, Dance Programme Malmö, the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography at Florida State University, Mount Tremper Arts through funding from the Alan M. Kriegsman Creative Residency at Dance Place, and the Resident Artist Program at Movement Research supported by the Rosin Fund.
