Five Objects (In isolation & Solitude)
Created by Alex Ketley
Commissioned by NYU Tisch School of Dance
Previewed in December 2012
Premiered in March 2013
In the fall of 2012, Alex Ketley was commissioned to create a new work for the senior students at the NYU Tisch School of Dance. He was curious about different modalities of impact in performance. From the ecstatic body to the stark and deliberate. Also in the construction of the overall work, he was interested in having the arc of the work purposely shattered into five separate performance object. He thoroughly enjoyed the students and the full project.
