you will see more stars
CHOREOGRAPHER KIMBERLY BARTOSIK
+ VISUAL ARTIST MATTHEW RITCHIE
A hybrid performance project, You will see more stars celebrates our emergence out of isolation and into a new reality. It documents, within the bodies of the participants, the post-pandemic reopening of the world. A collaboration between award-winning choreographer Kimberly Bartosik and visionary artist Matthew Ritchie, You will see more stars tracks the collapse of distance allowed between bodies during and after COVID-19 quarantine, as well as the radical experience of the notion of time and bodies while in isolation. Themes of rupture, retrieval, and recuperation filtered throughout the process of seeding, developing, and producing the work.
