Jonah Bokaer Choreography
New time! 7:00 p.m.
Dance, sculpture, and projected images combine to create awe-inspiring visual illusions
Jonah Bokaer’s engaging performance, REPLICA, will be held in the Museum’s Copeland Sculpture Garden. Cultivating a new form of choreography with a structure that relies on visual art and design, Bokaer aims to transform notions of how the public sees and understands dance. Employing videos and still images, REPLICA is a masterful performance that melds the worlds of dance, sculpture, and visual art and creates intriguing visual illusions. Bokaer completed a dual degree in visual and media arts at the New School in New York City while dancing with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. His work has been presented at MASS MoCA, MoMA PS1, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Institut Valenciá d’Art Modern in Spain, among many other performances nationally and abroad.
