Gibney opens its 2022-23 presenting season at Gibney Center with the New York premiere of Sidra Bell Dance New York’s IN | REP: Introspection (An Evening of Works). Marking the 20th anniversary of her company, Sidra Bell Dance New York (SBDNY), the 65-minute program seamlessly connects excerpts from works choreographed by Bell for her company since its 2001 founding. The program has been described as “hypnotically seductive” and “brilliant and impressive,” Bell’s aesthetic rings of “Pina Bausch, fashion, and Harlem’s ballrooms” in a unique, visionary style that draws in audiences, deeply. Her distinctive, hyperkinetic movement and dramatic brilliance hone-in on the human psyche, questions of identity and the shape of time. Sidra Bell, who was named Gibney’s inaugural Artist-In-Residence (AiR) in July 2022, is an acclaimed and prolific choreographer. Her work has been performed throughout the United States and abroad. The AiR program is a comprehensive support system for established creators that provides substantial, diverse, and multi-year support for a mid-career choreographer. IN | REP: Introspection is accompanied by a multimedia installation, RETURN TO FORM: The Shape of Time, An Installation by Sidra Bell Dance New York and the SBDNY Design Team, featuring video, objects, performance ephemera, drawings, costumes, dreams, texts, palettes, and designs from the artists of Sidra Bell Dance New York and its collaborators over the past two decades.
