In "I hunger for you," deeply internalized forces of faith, violence, life force, and compassion pulse through bodies that exist in a mesmerizing, starkly beautiful, often dangerous world. In a world defined by light and its absence, the work looks deeply into the heart of the impulse to lose oneself in ecstasy, ritual, desire, and searching, riding an edge of barely controlled abandon and vibrating stillness.
Choreography and Direction by Kimberly Bartosik.
Open to the public - limited seating.
Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center and UNC Asheville will convene the inaugural Faith in Arts Institute, September 10-13, 2020. This four-day event will bring together acclaimed artists and scholars to explore the intersections of art, faith, and spirit. Public events will include the opening of an exhibition on John Cage and Buddhism at BMCM+AC, the southeast premiere performance of "I hunger for you" by Guggenheim Fellow Kimberly Bartosik at JCC, and the world premiere of a newly commissioned composition "Waves and Particles" by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams, performed by the JACK Quartet at UNC Asheville.
Tickets for each event sold separately.
Choreographer, performer, educator Kimberly Bartosik creates viscerally provocative, ferociously intimate 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, dramatically illuminates the ephemeral nature of performance.
Bartosiks most recent project, I hunger for you, was commissioned and presented by BAM Next Wave Festival 2018 and LUMBERYARD Center for Film & Performing Arts, through an inaugural year BAM/LUMBERYARD partnership. She is a 2017-20 New York Live Arts Live Feed Residency Artist where she is developing a new work to premiere at NYLA in March 2020. In NYC her work has also been presented by American Realness, FIAFs Crossing the Line Festival, Abrons Art Center, Gibney, Danspace Project, The Kitchen, La Mama, and BEAT Festival. Bartosik has toured to Wexner Arts Center, Dance Place, American Dance Festival, The Yard, MASS MoCA/Jacobs Pillow, The Flynn, Bates Dance Festival, Church, Columbia College (2020), Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (2020), Mount Tremper Arts, Festival Rencontres Chorégraphique Internationales de Seine-Saint Denis, Artdanthe Festival, and others.
