Frantic Beauty at BAM Fisher

BAM Fisher

321 Ashland Pl, Brooklyn, NY, 11217

The World Premiere of Frantic Beauty marks LEIMAY’s return to BAM Fisher for the third installment of their BECOMING pentalogy. Co-conceived, designed, and directed by Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya and featuring the LEIMAY Ensemble, this original dance theater work reflects on society’s pursuit of and relationship to beauty. In Frantic Beauty, the multidisciplinary duo navigates this intricate thematic terrain by engulfing the audiences in trembling images, layering striking physicality and textured video landscapes, lushly scored by the Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal (House of Cards).

Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya are the duo behind CAVE, the New York Butoh Festival, and the Williamsburg SOAK festival. Comprising photography, video art, installation, and dance—and often involving interdisciplinary collaborations and training projects, LEIMAY’s sculptural, video, and light installations and contemporary performances are rooted in the body, integrating instinct-grounded choreographies and mesmerizing environments. —BAM
