Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago: Kimberly Bartosik’s I hunger for you
Call (312) 369-8330 (Use code 33463)
Kimberly Bartosik, former dancer with Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and her company Kimberly Bartosik/daela make their Chicago debut presented by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago. Bartosik’s collaborative work I hunger for you is a reflection on faith and its power to transform the body. Suspended in a stark and mesmerizing world, the dance creates a space where internalized forces of faith pulse through dancers’ bodies, which restlessly, tenderly and violently confront one another. Bartosik, who choreographed this work in close collaboration with her performers, draws on her personal experience with Charismatic spirituality and delves into the heart of losing one’s self in ecstasy, ritual and desire.
January 30 to February 1 at 7:30 pm. The Dance Center, 1306 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
