Currently reading : TONIGHT AT THE NEW MUSEUM : JONAH BOKAER !
In less than 6 hours, my dear friend, extremely talented dancer & choreographer (and indeed, SB5 contributor) Jonah Bokaer, together with Judith Sanchez Ruiz, will be presenting the premiere of REPLICA at the New Museum, New York City!
The piece examines memory loss, pattern recognition, and perceptual faculties as they apply to the human body. In collaboration with visual artist Daniel Arsham, the piece employs built spaces, objects, lighting, and other media to create the illusion of an expanded space through the use of video and other still images. The work creates situations on stage that could not veritably exist in physical space: this happens through the use of creative geography in video and built spaces, transporting movement to different locations that appear to be just outside the siteline of the audience.
