From Thursday through Saturday, September 23rd to 25th, The Kitchen presents the North American premiere of Singular Sensation, a new work by renowned Israeli-American choreographer Yasmeen Godder. Singular Sensation explores the emotional landscape of a generation desensitized by information overload and excess of all kinds. The piece asks who we are in the hyper-informed, self-conscious, “look at me” world, and how we find excitement, a true thrill, or a deep connection to sensation. The piece fluctuates between moments of awkward hilarity, perceptive subtlety, and a sensibility verging on bordello-like morality. The five individual performers push the boundaries of their own complacency to provoke a singular sensation in each other and themselves. Godder developed the piece in collaboration with each of the performers, and their own experiences informed the choreography.

Singular Sensation will be performed at 8 PM at The Kitchen – 512 West 19th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues.  $15 tickets can be purchased online.
