Directed by Basmat Hazan
The worlds of dance, pop music, myth, and video collide in Binding, a solo piece created and performed by JESSE ZARITT, receiving its premiere performances in the soloNOVA Arts Festival at P.S. 122. Zaritt, a powerhouse dancer and compelling performer, will be remembered as a member of the Shen Wei Dance Arts Company (2001-2006), and has also appeared with the Inbal Pinto Dance Company in Tel Aviv. He was most recently seen in New York dancing with Faye Driscoll at DTW.
Binding was the inaugural production of Theatre C, which commissioned the work, and is a close collaboration between Zaritt, director Basmat Hazan, and producer/dramaturge Carlos Armesto. Violent, tender, and erotic, the dance/theater work portrays a solitary man's quest for love and connection. Breaking free from his repressions, he propels his body into a rapture of violence and tenderness.
Binding is a commission by Theatre C, created for the soloNOVA Arts Festival. Binding was nurtured and supported by LABA: The National Laboratory for New Jewish Culture at the 14th Street Y in Manhattan.
