Glimmer at the Bullitt
A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light
Evening length performance at ACT Theatre's Bullitt Cabaret
In 2006, KT began investigating the relationship between audience, artist and proximity. This search led her to seek out environments that ask the performer and the witness to confront each other in more potent ways. A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light, in all its forms, is an outcropping of this search.
Commissioned by ACT's Central Heating Lab, this is the culmination dance-performance event influenced by the preceding solo performances, SAM kinetic work, and pre-function connections.
Niehoff and her expanded posse of vibrant performers (including live music from the Seattle band Ivory in Ice World, original score by Scott Colburn and light by Evan Ritter) begin with the premise that every interaction holds untapped potential, then sculpt uncommon encounters, moody collisions, raucous spectacle and virtuoso dancing – asking for more resonant connection and embracing the success or failure that ensues.
