Joanna Kotze Presents Sneak Preview Of New Interdisciplinary Work at New York Live Arts Studios

2013 New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" award winner for Outstanding Emerging Choreographer, Joanna Kotze presents a work-in-progress of her new interdisciplinary dance performance What will we be like when we get there. The piece is created and performed by Kotze and long-time collaborators dancer/choreographer Netta Yerushalmy, visual artist Jonathan Allen and composer/musician Ryan Seaton. Treating various locations as collaborators, the work explores physical, emotional and artistic spectrums while reflecting on the desire for intimacy and greater impact - on place, people, and each other. As our lives continue to be dependent on and are driven by media, Kotze is interested in bringing attention to our humanness - our desires, flaws, strengths and fantasies - through a multi-disciplinary lens. The full evening-length production of What will we be like when we get there will premiere at New York Live Arts, March 28-31, 2018.

New York Live Arts' Live Feed, a creative residency program supporting the development of new work, is one the three development programs offered by the organization. Informal public showings followed by a discussion with the artists, offer a sneak peek into each resident artists' process and ideas before they hit the stage. The 2016-2018 Live Feed artists are DANCENOICE, Jack Ferver, Joanna Kotze, Paloma McGregor, and Walter Dundervill.
