No Longer Showing.

In this new work, koosil-ja, along with Geoff Matters, continues her research on Body—dealing this time with the psyche of capitalism embedded in her own. Capitalism creates, flees, captures, and kills. We love and hate power. We obey and resist. We plug ourselves into the social structure that produces lack and fear, but what we want is something else. For I am capitalism, Matters and koosil-ja contemplate how the psyche of capitalism has taken over the body and they exorcise it, channeling various sources and conjuring movement, video, text, light, and sound. The project is created in collaboration with Nick Bixby, Brian Chase, Melissa Guerrero, David Or, and Ryan Seelig. Organized by Matthew Lyons.

September 10–12, 8pm

This project was developed, beginning in 2011, with grants from the MAP Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New Music USA, and the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography. Additional support provided by The Performing Garage and Movement Research. 

The Kitchen's presentation of koosil-ja/danceKUMIKO: I am capitalism is made possible with support from Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance, and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

One is not equal to zero, human is not ...Read On
