Stamford native Karesia Batan, now an NYC-based choreographer, will have a CT premiere of her newest work titled Currents with her company The Physical Plant this November 10th, 7:00pm at the Performance Conservatory of New Canaan. Batan is presenting her work in a split-bill show with fellow NYC choreographer EmmaGrace Skove-Epes, a Brooklyn native.
The show's themes of water and sensory driven action resonate in each dance from contrasting perspectives. Batan's Currents is a physical exploration that harnesses the energy existing within the body to create a momentum that collides and blends with other bodies in space. Skove-Epes' work Bathtime reflects on pilgrimage, daydreaming, repetition, and personal ritual, as dancers journey through basins filled with water.
Tickets for Currents and Bathtime will be sold at the door for $15.
Reservations are strongly recommended by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currents will be performed by The Physical Plant dancers Bong Dizon, Kayla Radomski, Jeff Shortt, and Kimberly Whorton. Bathtime will be performed by Laura Alexander, Nia Austin-Edwards, Karesia Batan, Rachel Goldstein, Charlotte Hendrickson, Gyrchel Moore, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes, and Nadia Tykulsker.
