Peter Kyle Dance- Artist Portrait

KnowOne is a 60-minute performance installation choreographed and conceived by Peter Kyle featuring seven dancers, live music by Michael Bellar and the As-Is Ensemble, and marble sculpture and video animation byVenske & Spänle. This collaborative project premiered in September 2010 during the Dumbo Arts Festival at One Arm Red, in New York City.On the surface, this work is a thrilling performance where dance, music and sculpture are experienced on equal terms. Below the surface, KnowOneachieves a heightened sense of place and enriched awareness of our moment-to-moment existence, much like what anthropologist Michael Jackson’s describes in his insightful book, At Home In The World, where “There seems to be no resistance between oneself and the world. The relationship is all.”
