In this, Ms. Bartosik’s study of intimate relationships, we view three duets woven together: dancer and designer, dancer and dancer, vocalist and vocalist. Each of these subtly poses a piercing question about relationships and intimacy, power and control. With these bold inquiries, Ms. Bartosik also asks fundamental questions about modern dance, and more broadly, theater itself.

About daela & Kimberly Bartosik
daela is an ensemble of performers and designers working under the artistic leadership of choreographer and dancer Kimberly Bartosik. The organization, working on a project-to-project basis, is dedicated to rigorous exploration of movement, sound and visual design towards the creation of performances in space-specific environments.
Bessie Award-winning performer Kimberly Bartosik creates viscerally provocative choreographic projects that are built upon the development of a virtuosic movement language, rigorous conceptual explorations, and the creation of highly theatricalized environments. Her work, which is deeply informed by literature and cinema, involves complex plays on space, time, and audience perspective, dramatically illuminating the ephemeral nature of performance. Bartosik’s work has been commissioned and presented by Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project, French Institute Alliance Francaise, Artdanthe Festival (France), The Kitchen, La Mama, Mt. Tremper Arts, Barnard College, and Movement Research at Judson Church. In 2005 she founded the organization daela, in order to facilitate the development of the creation of her artistic work. From 1987-96 she was a member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, where she created over 19 original roles.
