Repair is a duet structured around a series of interruptions, revealing a dancer exploding with extravagance, exuberance and vulnerability. It is an intimate piece that seeks to acknowledge the extravagant drama inherent in precise gesture and succinct physical behaviour. Repair is set on a stagewithin- a-stage, housed inside large curtains and accompanied by a live sound score.

The result of a three-way collaboration between Shick, visual artist Barbara Kilpatrick and composer Elise Kermani, the work reflects a devotion to detail and an interest in revealing the nuance of persona and mood.

Vicky Shick has been performing, teaching and choreographing in New York since the 1970s. As a member of the Trisha Brown Company, she received a New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Award for performance. She was named a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Fellow in 2006 and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow in 2008-09.

“Her style—beautiful, tough, and even a bit perverse—is reined in by a love of the absurd. It is feminism with a screw loose.” Gia Kourlas, The New York Times


There will be a post show discussion following the performance on Friday 14 May with Choreographer Vicky Shick and dancers.
