a quartet

Heather Kravas

In a quartet, experimentalist Heather Kravas creates a kaleidoscopic ballet, a mutating folk dance and a human desire machine to explore the possible outcomes of individuals dancing together. a quartet features choreography and direction by Kravas, an original score by Dana Wachs, a.k.a. Vorhees, lighting design by Madeline Best and scenography by Jason Starkie, along with performances by Oren Barnoy, Cecilia Eliceche, Jennifer Kjos, and Liz Santoro.

At once precise and overwhelming, a quartet drastically reduces, then reiterates its vocabulary to examine the politics of societal fidelity. How do disparate beings become one faction? What is the nature of exclusion and opposition? Where is the end of us and the beginning of them? Appetites, communism, underwear models, servitude, black holes and the pastoral cross paths with tradition. Conventions are considered through a minimalist lens – it is an aim toward the singular from the multitude and back again.

       

a quartet is also supported by: PACT/Zollverein, CCN à Belfort, On the Boards, P.S.122 and The Kitchen.

This performance is brought to you in part by the Redd Carpet Fund, providing artists and arts organizations access to the professional facilities at the Joe R.and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts.
