Event Description

Encounters with LEIMAY Part 2:
Symposium, Solo Study, and Studies for Frantic Beauty

This afternoon with LEIMAY revolves around the words and concept of Frantic Beauty, which is the subject and name of LEIMAY’s new piece, premiering at BAM in 2017. The afternoon begins with a symposium of guests from different fields who discuss the many ways of interpreting the words Frantic Beauty. Following, LEIMAY will present a performance Study for the piece. The afternoon will close with an additional Study, a solo choreographed by one of LEIMAY’s Ensemble members, Derek Di Martini. Afterwards, audience members are invited to share their impressions of the work in a round table format.
 

Solo Study - Beat Your Heart Out with Derek DiMartini

Beat Your Heart Out taps into the insatiable body; the frenzied state that attempts to destroy the line between carnal consumption and self-transcendence. Passion in aggression; Cracking open the self from the inside out;  Expending beyond limits. This piece was developed with LEIMAY.

 
Encounters with LEIMAY is a four-part series of talks, performances, and training that, seen as a whole, offer a resonant environment that mirrors LEIMAY’s artistic practice. Encounters with LEIMAY is conceived by artistic directors Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya as a chance to see the ensemble at its home, uncovering the layers of thought, practice, and experimentation that compose LEIMAY’s work. This series includes the LEIMAY LUDUS Summer Intensive, a lecture demonstration on LEIMAY LUDUS, and symposium and performance studies focused around LEIMAY’s new piece, Frantic Beauty, premiering at BAM in September 2017.
 
Sunday, June 11th, 2pm-6pm
Space is limited. Online RSVP Required.
