ABOUT THE PROJECT
Untitled(1-2), a two-phase, dual-venue choreographic project for five performers, will be the culmination of Bartosik’s long-term examination into faith, ecstasy, and violence within specific, radical religious practices. This research delves into her experiences of growing up in North Carolina with parents who converted to Born-Again Christianity and embraced Charismatic rituals.
Untitled(1) will premiere in fall 2018. The project’s second phase, Untitled(2), will be commissioned by New York Live Arts for spring 2019, as part of NYLA’s Live Feed Residency Program. Bartosik’s long-time collaborator, Roderick Murray, will create the original design.
