In Context: I hunger for you

Kimberly Bartosik’s I hunger for you explores the human body using light and its stark absence. Restless, tender, and violent, this modern piece delves into the heart of losing yourself in ecstasy, ritual, and desire. Context is everything, so we’ve provided some articles for you to read and videos to watch. After you’ve attended the show, let us know what you thought by posting in the comments below and on social media using #ihungerforyou.

  1. Got to see a work in progress version at New York Live Arts last year, and seeing this show yesterday fulfilled on every promise that made. These artists are so fully committed here, special shout out to Joanna Kotze who is always bringing a sparkling intensity to her work. I remember saying how much I loved being somewhat 'inside' the work as the early performance had the audience sitting in between the performers and the loudspeakers - the arrangement at the Fisher worked just as well, especially in the loud, pumping sections. It makes the spectacle confrontational without the audience feeling infringed upon in any way other than for us to make a relative commitment to stay engaged.
