INSEKTA - Dance into the Bustling World of Bugs!

This Sunday, April 14, Flushing Town Hall, a dynamic multi-arts center, presents a multi-media dance program.

It’s a great show for all ages.

~~ KINEMATIK Dance Theater’s INSEKTA!  ~~

KINEMATIK Dance Theater was founded in 2010 by choreographer/artistic director Svea Schneider and educator/dancer Kristina Martinez. 

Its goal is to create, share and connect with people from all walks of life through dance, believing that dance, the most primal form of human expression is the most effective medium with which to communicate.   The company nurtures and expands the art of dance by providing visually stimulating and provocative choreography.  They push the boundaries of traditional urban and contemporary dance, fusing elements of urban vernacular dance such as House, Hip Hop, Breakdance and Vogue integrated with contemporary modern dance.

KINEMATIK has performed at Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater; WestFest Dance Festival; Highline Ballroom; Merce Cunningham Studio, Danspace at St. Marks Church; BB Kings, and the DUMBO Dance Festival.   In 2010, KINEMATIK’s choreography “System Malfunction” was selected as TOP 10 Finalist in the international choreography contest “Global Dance Contest” by the renowned Sadlers Well’s Theater in London.

Collaborating with technology artist Cheng-I-Wang, KINEMATIK investigates the diversity of insects through dance, motion detection projections, and the innovative use of props; fusing technology with Breakdance, House, Vogue and modern dance.  KINEMATIK creates a unique and visually stimulating dance performance.
