“LeeSaar’s dances always require unwavering attention” – Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times
The physicality and explosive tempos synonymous with LeeSaar’s award-winning choreography mature and ripen in the company’s fourth presentation at Performance Space 122.
In Prima, four arresting performers explore a world of pure sensation and energy. Teasing out the feminine and the virile, they are alternately playful and bashful as they navigate sexuality and temptation.
The company’s process and technique is influenced by the Gaga training of Ohad Naharin. Lee and Saar are recipients of the Six Point Fellowship 2007-2009, the Guggenheim Fellowship in Choreography for 2008, and the New York Foundation for the Art Fellowship for 2008.
