Veteran PS122 choreographer Pavel Zuštiak is bringing new work to Abrons Art Center next month and we’re looking forward to seeing it. The video teaser is cryptic and intriguing and wins the award for shortest teaser video ever.
A man in an empty space: in a field, onstage, in combat. Is this his ultimate battle and can it be won? Pavel Zuštiak/Palissimo charts new territories with Endangered Pieces, a performance unfolding in a series of dream-like scenes set amidst a looming calamity. Throughout, the visceral trumps the literal, leaving visual impressions that linger and gestate in the subconscious as both alluring and unsettling.
