In April 2016, Brooklyn-based company Kimberly Bartosik / daela premiered the duet Étroits sont les Vaisseaux at Gibney Dance’s Agnes Varis Performance Lab. On January 6 and 7, as part of the multidisciplinary American Realness festival and in conjunction with APAP | NYC, Bartosik (The Materiality of Impermanence, Ecsteriority) will be presenting four encore performances at the Gibney lab, both days at 5:00 and 7:00. The very intimate show, which will be performed for a small audience, was inspired by Anselm Keifer’s eighty-two-foot-long “Étroits sont les Vaisseaux,” an undulating installation that is on long-term view at MassMoca. The duet will again be performed by Joanna Kotze (Find Yourself Here, Between You and Me) and Lance Gries (Etudes for an Astronaut, The FIFTY Project), with lighting and set design by Roderick Murray, costumes by Bartosik, Kotze, and Gries, sound by Bartosik and Murray, and choreography by Bartosik in close collaboration with the dancers. The piece deals with time and tides, running twenty-four minutes and fifty seconds, based on the lunar day, which lasts twenty-four hours and fifty minutes.
