Sam Kim's Studio Series Set for 1/31-2/1 at New York Live Arts

Related: New York Live Arts, Sam Kim, Sister to a Fiend

New York Live Arts will present the Studio Series showing of Sam Kim's Sister to a Fiend on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1 at 6:00pm in the third floor studios at New York Live Arts.

Sister to a Fiend is a new, ritualistic dance for three performers that reveals the secret and magic rites of a closed culture of three potent, feminine and liminal creatures. The work features dancers Erin Beneze, Ashley Handel and Rebecca Warner, and examines the psychic landscape they occupy. Colliding the dance form with "known cultures/almost references" it includes the strange and awkward, sexy dance from "Vampyros Lesbos," and the solo at the lonely disco in Claire Denis's film "Beau Travail." Oblique inspiration is also taken from the work of conceptual clothing designer Martin Margiela and Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein."

Studio Series work-in-process showings will take place in New York Live Arts' studios. Tickets are $5. There will be free in-process talks after each showing with an array of moderators. Tickets are available online at newyorklivearts.secure.force.com, by phone at 212-924-0077 and in person at the box office. Box office hours are Monday to Friday from 1 to 9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 8pm. New York Live Arts is located at 219 West 19th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. There will be no late seating.

Sister to a Fiend was developed in part during a residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, New York, NY. Sister to a Fiend was made possible, in part, through The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund. Sister to a Fiend was supported, in part, through a commission from New York Live Arts' Studio Series program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. Sister to a Fiend was also developed, in part, at The MacDowell Colony and Djerassi Resident Artists Program.
