Choreographer Kim Brandt opens her 2015 ISSUE Project Room residency with a new durational work premiering at Audio Visual Arts from 12-6pm. The untitled piece is an inquiry of the human form as a material, revealing what happens when a method, formal system or ideology is laid upon the body. Performing in AVA's intimate space, performers move together to create a singular working body, eliciting references to non-human movement in the natural world, human experience in a socialized world, and historicized choreographic practices. The piece invites the viewer to experience movement within a broad range of proximity, point of view and duration, exploring the relationship between the transient natures of dance performance and gallery viewership.

Featuring performers Anna Adams Stark, Lydia Adler Okrent, Rebecca Cardwell, Liz Charky, Jessica Cook, Courtney Cooke, Leslie Cuyjet, Katie Dean, Greer Dworman, Tess Dworman, Ayano Elson, Devynn Emory, Kyli Kleven, Steve May, Jules Skloot, Emily Wexler, and Tara Willis.

Kim Brandt has presented her work in NYC at The Kitchen, Movement Research, Danspace Project at St. Marks, AUNTS at the New Museum and Abrons Arts Center, P.S. 122, La Mama ETC, Roulette, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Jack, Elizabeth Dee, Josee Bienvenue, Industry City, Airplane, Five Myles and The Laundromat. She is a 2015 Artist-In-Residence at ISSUE Project Room.
