Kinesis Project dance theatre presents a bi-coastal live and livestream performance of Search(Light), performed simultaneously at Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York and Kay White Hall on Vashon Island. The New York dancers will be projected live onstage at the Kay White Hall, connecting with the west coast dancers in duets, trios and group unison across the country, in real time. This ground-breaking dance performance combining high-energy dancing, gorgeous light-reflecting costumes, and live music, will prompt viewers to experience the potency of human connections across great distances. Performed in front of a live audience in the Kay White Hall, Search(Light) will also livestream on the Vashon Center for the Arts' website.

Search(Light) will be danced by the full, bi-coastal company in their respective cities. Claudia-Lynn Rightmire, Therese Ronco, David L. Parker, Nicole Truzzi, in New York with Hendri Walujo, Kimberly Holloway, Robbi Moore, Madeline Morser and Margaret Behm on Vashon Island, WA. The dancers are accompanied live by violin soloist Doori Na and music by the award winning Sandbox Percussion Quartet, with projection installations in the Navy Yard by Ezra J. Robinson - creating a layered experience of the human and the ethereal for audiences. Melissa Riker, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Kinesis Project dance theatre, said “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. 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. The duets, trios and solos beamed across the country in real time reveal our large-scale vision, overlaid with the intimacy of individual connection in each in person space”
