Barkin/Selissen Project Presents; Accidental Suite @ The Byrdcliffe Theater

September 18, 2021 all-day
Byrdcliffe Theater
380 Upper Byrdcliffe Rd. Woodstock NY 12498


Join us as we celebrate dance and human connection!

Barkin/Selissen Project (B/SP) will preview an extended version of Accidental Suite at the Byrdcliffe Theater on September 18th!  In June of 2019, thousands of viewers across the globe experienced Accidental Suite as part of B/SP’s Titles Project, and voted for it to be expanded for live presentation.

This live celebration event, wrapped in pre- and post-performance receptions, includes a screening of the Titles Project short film series and a 30 minute live performance of Accidental Suite featuring 9 dancers and an original score by Zac Selissen.

Born from raw experimentation and wrangled through structured improvisation, Accidental Suite builds relational tension through increasing levels of contact.  The piece evokes chance encounters, near misses, and the magnetic push and pull of relationships from start to finish.  In these deeply alienating times, it taps into the most essential of human needs, relating to one another.

About the Company:

Barkin/Selissen Project, a NYC-based contemporary dance company founded in 2009, strives to blur lines between the emotional and intellectual, dream worlds and waking states through the mediums of live performance, film, and workshops. With dramatic shifts from nuance to explosive athleticism, Artistic Directors Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen’s choreography infuses fresh perspective on subjects ranging from the complexities of mathematics to the complexities of human nature.

“We do our best to experience, demonstrate, and proliferate ways in which we can all connect and feel alive together.” –Kyla Barkin, Founding/Artistic Director, B/S P
