VIM VIGOR DANCE COMPANY - SEPARATI
VIM VIGOR DANCE COMPANY will premiere SEPARATI at the Gelsey Kirkland Arts Center at 29 Jay Street in DUMBO Brooklyn, Thursday through Saturday, January 28-30, 2016 at 7:30pm.
SEPARATI enters the turbid psychic space of highway travel and anonymous companionship. Caught up at a midway point, five characters travel through the past, present and dark hallucinatory projections of the future. Stilled periods of waiting juxtapose wild physical bouts of surreal movement, as reality gives way to the imagination. What is the distance between where we have come from and where we want to go? Between what happens to us and who we are? Can the space between bodies and ideas ever be joined? And if not, can we exist in the middle ground of separation?
