2019 Festival: BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT
The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute welcomes BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT to the 2019 National Math Festival!
BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT, a NYC based dance company, presents the choreography of Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen. The movement exhibits subtle nuances contrasted with explosive athletic extremes and is regarded for its integrity and idiosyncratic style. B/S P has been presented at venues including Jacob’s Pillow, SUNY Stony Brook’s Staller Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Bryant Park in NYC, Wilson College 2017 Summer AIR, Uferstudios Berlin, and the EICC in Scotland (Booking Dance and Fringe Festivals). Notable collaborations are with Juano Castillo, FALKOR Systems, Reggie Watts/Sally Taylor, Jim Simons and Sirius String Quartet on Differential Cohomology, and Martinus Miroto/live 3D Holograms. Barkin and Selissen teach internationally and are also both long-time members of Janis Brenner and Dancers.
At the 2019 Festival
Inspired by Dr. James Simons’s theory, BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT’S Differential Cohomology: Dance of the Diagram merges math and art through lush athletic choreography, hexagonal patterns, and an intriguing cyclical course that illustrates the journey toward the inevitable.
