Dance group to bring two companies together in one place.

Kinesis Project dance theatre will present a bi-coastal live and live-streamed performance of “Search(Light),” to be performed simultaneously at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City and at Kay White Hall on Vashon Island. Performances will be held Oct. 8 – 9.

The New York company of dancers will be projected live onstage at the Kay White Hall, connecting with the Seattle company of dancers, who will perform live on stage. Throughout the performance, the dancers on the east and west coasts will connect in unison through duets, trios and group dances in real-time.

“The dancers and I are thrilled to step up to the challenge of bringing the full company back together — offering access to dance audiences on two coasts,” said Melissa Riker, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Kinesis Project dance theatre. “With ‘Search(Light),’ the scale of the Brooklyn Navy Yard will create an entirely new experience for fans of the Kay White Hall on Vashon Island.”

“Search(Light)” will be performed 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8 and 9, at Vashon Center for the Arts. There will be a live stream of the performances available as well. Tickets are $25 for the in-person performance and $15 for live stream access.
