Kaley Pruitt Dance has been invited to perform in Simantikos Dance Chicago’s Choreo Kick-Off Festival Friday September 10th 7:00pm at Ruth Page Center for the Arts. Pruitt’s duet Of Nearness will be danced by Rich Ashworth and Kaley Pruitt. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and free for students and children. We hope you can come out to see us, and support live dance performance coming back in Chicago!
ABOUT THE PIECE: Of Nearness explores the embodiment of power dynamics and psychophysical connection between two people. The work probes the relationship between movement and time, as it molds the audience witnessing as a catalyst for empathy. Bringing the audience into the dancers’ experience both mentally and physically, a sound score of recorded narration functions to offer an unknown witness’s inner monologue of personal reflection about the relationship as the work unfolds. The piece encourages a psychological connection between audience and dancers in addition to the kinetic connection to explore new ways of watching and engaging with dance.
