Kinski is doing a live score for this incredibly cool-looking dance performance in NY Dec 5-8


Our friends in Kinski will be performing an original score with the choreography team robbinschilds for their new live performance installation C.L.U.E. (color location ultimate experience), Dec. 5th-8th at New York’s Performance Space 122.

Here’s a description from the PS122 website:

Choreography team robbinschilds are known for creating acutely visual works that explore the intersection of human movement and architecture, be it natural or man-made. C.L.U.E. (color location ultimate experience) seamlessly combines a movement-based video with an acutely visual live dance performance and an original score performed live by Seattle rock band Kinski.

“The performance as a whole is a kind of choreographed rainbow, with each band dancing its own dance. And they are wonderful dances.” – Holland Cotter, The New York Times “Art in Review” March 30, 2007 (C.L.U.E. – the video)

And, here’s some further information about robbinschilds, lifted from their website:

robbinschilds, founded in 2003 on the choreographers’ (Sonya Robbins and Layla Childs) shared interest in performance and installation, is focused on presenting highly visual dance works which explore the intersection between architecture and human movement. With a particular attraction to empty places, public spaces, geological formations, time travel and psychedelic filigree, the choreographers’ intricately structured movement vocabulary traverses through the inanimate, human and extra-pedestrian states. In a style that is obsessive, persistent and often humorous, robbinschilds’ observations of the human imprint on the world are revealed.

All of which makes this sound like an incredibly and uniquely cool event. The dates are listed here, along with Kinski’s other upcoming tour dates.

Performance Space 122 is located at 150 First Avenue at East 9th Street.
