The ADF commissioned Marksman, the latest work by Kate Weare, explores the nuance and precision we use to intuit one another on a magnetic level, etching formal patterns that serve us both biologically and aesthetically. Using ancient senses remote from modern consciousness yet imperative to survival, Marksman delves into peripheral awareness, reflex, synchrony, repulsion, and the sheer forcefulness of formation. As always, Weare mines the magnetism and electrical connection between bodies that is emotionally resonant, imbuing Marksman with power, attraction, hierarchy, vulnerability, and aloneness.

Marksman is commissioned by ADF with support from the SHS Foundation and the Charles L. and Stephanie Reinhart Fund.

ADF’s presentation of Marksman by Kate Weare is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
