Event Description

The World Premiere of Frantic Beauty marks LEIMAY’s return to BAM Fisher for the third installment of their BECOMING pentalogy. Co-conceived, designed, and directed by Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya and featuring the LEIMAY Ensemble, this original dance theater work reflects on society’s pursuit of and relationship to beauty. In Frantic Beauty, the multidisciplinary duo navigates this intricate thematic terrain by engulfing the audiences in trembling images, layering striking physicality and textured video landscapes, lushly scored by the Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal (House of Cards).

Frantic Beauty is accompanied by a publication that reflects on the themes of the work.
