Aynsley Vandenbroucke – 35 1/2


May 15-18, 2013

Wednesday thru Saturday at 8pm

In 35 1/2, three performers grapple with opposites, which aren’t really opposites. They play with dancing + thinking, writing + reading, analyzing + immersing, performing + being. They are organized by structure, uncreativity, pleasure, modesty, excess, and focus. Life enters in.

The experience of 35 1/2 will be deeply shaped by the contributions of Vandenbroucke’s performance and design collaborators, who were chosen for their own passions, and differences, in relation to intellectual adventuring and full bodied art-making.

Created by Aynsley Vandenbroucke in close collaboration with the performers. Performed by Lauren Grace Bakst, Vicky Shick, and Rebecca Warner. Music by Bobby Previte. Lighting by Nelson R. Downend, Jr. Costumes by Jenny Lai.

35 1/2 was made possible, in part, by an Emergency Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Princeton University Faculty Research Grants, residencies at Yaddo, Mount Tremper Arts, Princeton, The Chocolate Factory, and by subsidized rehearsal space at CPR – Center for Performance Research with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
