Let it Linger
June 8, 9, 10 at 8pm
at The Kitchen, NYC
Let it Linger is a movement piece in several segments, each one with a slightly different combination of inhabitants. Discomfort, perhaps even the unpleasant, are interspersed with attempts at intimacy and with robust and luscious physicality.
“Her style – beautiful, tough and even a bit perverse— is reined in by a love of the absurd.”
Vicky Shick has been involved with the New York dance community for over three decades performing, choreographing, and teaching. For six years she was a member of the Trisha Brown Company and during that time had received a New York Dance and Performance Award, a “Bessie,” for performance. Other long term performing relationships have been with Yoshiko Chuma, Risa Jaroslow, Wendy Perron, Susan Rethorst and Sara Rudner. She has been making dances since the mid-eighties mostly in collaboration with visual artist Barbara Kilpatrick and sound designer Elise Kermani. Their 2003 piece received a “Bessie” for “outstanding creative achievement,” and their 2013 work was nominated for a “Bessie.” Over the years, Shick’s choreography has been presented by: The Brooklyn Museum, Danspace Project, Dance Theatre Workshop (DTW, now NYLA), The Kitchen, La Mama Moves, Movement Research at Judson Church, PS 122, Sundays on Broadway, The West End Theatre, and internationally at Project Art Centre in Dublin, the Verbier Music Festival in Switzerland, and at Trafó Theatre in Budapest, her home town. Shick has also worked with many other performers and choreographers, most recently with Meg Harper, Eva Karczag, Jon Kinzel, Andrea Kleine, Juliette Mapp, Jodi Melnick, Robert Swinston, and Cathy Weis. In 2012, she began working with Swiss video artist Seline Baumgartner, who will join her on this project. Shick has taught at many universities, for the Trisha Brown Company, and at Movement Research. Shick is a 2006 grant recipient from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts and a 2008-2009 Guggenheim Foundation Fellow. This is Vicky Shick’s second presentation at LUMBERYARD.
