Jon Kinzel, a choreographer, multimedia artist, and improviser, will initiate a new work at The Yard. The cast of 5, including four dancers and one sculptor, will reveal composed kinetic and visual languages that are at once unadorned and deeply detailed. The work will feature an investment in distinct performance material and original dance vocabularies, humor and gravitas, and connections between live art and object making. A construction of a set will be built on site.

Jon Kinzel has presented his work, including numerous commissions and solo shows, at a variety of national and international venues: receiving critical praise for his large scale gallery installation Atlantic Terminus (2016) at The Invisible Dog, Responsible Ballet and What We Need Is a Bench to Put Books On (2010) at The Kitchen, Someone Once Called Me A Sound Man (2013) at The Chocolate Factory - Best of 2013 ARTFORUM, COWHAND CON MAN (2015) at Gibney Dance: The Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, and Provision Provision (2015) at La MaMa. He has received support from foundations, fellowships, and residency programs, opportunities to mentor and curate, worked with many influential choreographers, composers, designers, and artists, and been featured in publications such as SCHIZM and the MR Performance Journal. He has taught at Barnard, Yale, GWU, LIU, Tsekh Moscow, Dance House Ireland, Gibney Dance, and the Merce Cunningham Trust. Currently, he is a faculty member at LCE, NYU, and Movement Research.
