Christine Bonansea: OnlyHuman | APAP Showcase
January 5 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Christine Bonansea, a French-born, NYC-based dancer and choreographer known for her expressive, virtuosic, improvisation-driven works infused with live music and strong visuals, is presenting her new solo OnlyHuman as an APAP showcase.
The work, created in collaboration with the composer and performer Nicole Carroll, lighting designer Elizabeth Mak and the visual designers Robert Flynt and Yoann Trellu will be shown on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, January 5-7 at 8pm at JACK (505 1/2 Waverly Ave, Brooklyn). Tickets are $10 online (available here) or $15 (cash only) at the door. Presenters can reserve free passes by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
OnlyHuman (work in progress) is the first installment in a series of collaborative performances, aimed at creating an interdisciplinary creative environment in which Bonansea’s solo dances evolve through interaction with new musical, visual and movement material created by an international and multicultural ensemble. The work draws inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human, a work described by its author as “a handbook for the free spirits.” Bonansea is particularly interested in the stark contradiction between the human capacity for freedom and beauty and its darkest, most destructive and illogical behaviors.
