Soluq Dance Theater || ASH & Water
Kevin Joseph Clark; Artistic Director & Choreographer Tuesday. June 6th, 2017. 8 PM | The Hudson Guild Theatre Tickets: $25. General Admission
THE SERIES 2017 presents the New York premieres of ASH and Water, on Tuesday June 6th, 2017, 8 PM at The Hudson Guild Theatre in a Split Bill performance with Michael Mao Dance. In this age of raging despots and displaced peoples, these companion pieces are essential viewing. With uncompromising purity, they shake the soul while reminding all to stand against such horrors ever happening again.
Choreographed by Kevin Joseph Clark to Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, ASH (2012) was inspired by the Holocaust and the effort to connect events from long ago to today’s emerging generation of activists. Initially conceived as a dance film, for this concert Mr. Clark has staged the searing drama of this work onto a cast six incredible women.
Water (2014), was choreographed by Kevin Joseph Clark and the dancers of Soluq Dance Theatre to music by Hauschka and Arvo Pärt. In Water, four dancers tumble through grief, religion, and the effort to reconcile with a world and God that seems to have abandoned them.
The dancers of Soluq Dance Theater include: Alison Adnet, Melanie DeGuzman, Emma Fitzsimmons, Lir Katz, Marija Obradovic, & Heather Robles.
Kevin Joseph Clark has been choreographing and creating since 2010. A founding member Soluq Dance Theater, he has served as artistic director since its inception. His work has been performed at Dixon Place, Duke University, The Tank NYC, and many other NY institutions.
