Dance | US Premiere
Presented by ArKtype / Thomas O Kriegsmann The Invisible Dog Art Center in partnership with Performance Space 122
The effort of lifting. The effort of a pledge. The effort of not knowing. A Study on Effort is a collaboration between the incomparable dancer Bobbi Jene Smith and acclaimed violinist Keir GoGwilt, consisting of 10 tasks that question physical, emotional and metaphoric effort through a lens celebrating the connections between sound, body and duration.
Iowa-born Smith spent a decade as featured performer of Batsheva Dance Company (Tel Aviv). Her premiere solo project explores how we receive pleasure from effort, decoupling it from burden, mining it for meaning. Through movement and sound, Smith and GoGwilt uncover the dynamics of effort from passive to extreme and its pervasiveness, exploring its connection to our most basic desires.
