duel c — Andros Zins-Browne
June 16, 7pm – 8pm
Outlook Hill, Governors Island
All events in the River To River Festival are free and all are welcome
duel c is a performance where care and violence commingle, stirring toward undoing. A dance of entanglement, duel c inhabits an illogic of sentience and perpetual movement, where agreement and disagreement, with and against, solidarity and solitary, harmony and dissonance are free to assume each other’s properties.
duel c is a movement piece in response to Charles Gaines’ Moving Chains, a public art sculpture presented by Governors Island Arts, Creative Time, and Time Square Arts on Governors Island.
Created and Performed with Ley Gambucci
Dramaturgy by Anna Lublina
Presented in partnership with Governors Island Arts and Creative Time.
Supported by Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels.
ANDROS ZINS-BROWNE (b. 1981, New York City) is an artist working at the intersection of performance and dance. His work employs choreographic notions in interaction with dancers, non-dancers, singers, objects, and texts. Central to these pursuits is the exploration of the body as a site of exchange between embodied images and somatic experience. His works include Already Unmade—an unmaking of his own dance archive— at the ICA, London; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris. In collaboration with Karthik Pandian, Atlas Unlimited, a series of exhibitions weaving sculpture and vocal performance was featured at the PERFORMA19 Performance Biennial. Other works of his have been commissioned by KADIST Foundation, The Museum of Modern Art, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the 10th Berlin Biennial and the Hammer Museum. Zins-Browne is the recipient of grants and awards from the Goethe Institute, the Flemish Cultural Ministry, New York State Council for the Arts, and the Graham Foundation. He is currently artist in residence at Danspace Project New York.
