VW Sunday Sessions presents the premiere of Problems, a new work from New York based choreographer Kim Brandt. Moving between the individual and the collective, performers execute movement-based scores that connect our spatial and temporal understandings of place. The performance focuses on building and dismantling a set of kinetic structures created specifically for the VW Dome.
Problems is developed in conjunction with Brandt’s three-month residency at MoMA PS1, expanding upon recent work presented at SculptureCenter, Movement Research, Issue Project Room, and Pioneer Works.
Performed by Anna Adams Stark, Laurel Atwell, Liz Charky, Meg Clixby, Jessica Cook, Courtney Cooke, Leslie Cuyjet, Katie Dean, Lillie De, Greer Dworman, Tess Dworman, Ayano Elson, devynn emory, Lydia Okrent, Angie Pittman, and Nora Stephens. Music Composition by Nate Wooley.
Tickets: $15 (MoMA Members $13)
