Flatlands Dance Theatre’s newest work, Unveiled,represents an extended collaboration with visual artist Kristy Kristinek who invokes her own bodily memories of being a dancer into her award-winning, gestural paintings. Kristinek and choreographers Ali Duffy and Almendra Gonzalez create a landscape of movement in a multi-media performance event. Viewers encounter layers of art: Hanging installation works, completed paintings on surrounding walls, live painting, improvisation, and dance create an atmosphere of immediacy, asking viewers to consider the following questions: When does art happen– in the past, present, or future? What remains after a performance is over?
Unveiled will be presented on Friday, September 21stand Saturday, September 22ndat 7:30pm in the 5&J Gallery at CASP (602 Avenue J). There are no tickets necessary for admittance. The suggested admission price (cash or card at the door) is $10 for adults and $5 for students/children.
