“works of feverish beauty and mystery …. imaginative physical extremes” — New York Times

I hunger for you is a reflection on faith and its power to transform the body. Suspended in a stark and mesmerizing world, the dance creates a space where internalized forces of faith pulse through dancers’ bodies which restlessly, tenderly, and violently confront one another. An alum of Merce Cunningham Dance Company now charting her own course, choreographer Kimberly Bartosik draws on her personal experience with charismatic spirituality and delves into the heart of losing one’s self in ecstasy, ritual, and desire.
