IAN BIVINS & GREGORY SCHOTT PERFORM IN KUNTZ AND COMPANY'S ORIGINAL WORK "POSITIVE"
Gregory Schott was brought from New York City to collaborate and perform with Ian Bivins in the latest Kuntz and Company original production. Positive is a dance/theatre piece that explores the lives of five different local community members whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS. As is typical in Pam Kuntz’s work, the performances combine the talents of professional performers with the actual community members whose stories are being told. The evening includes the perspective of individuals living with HIV as well as family members who watched a loved one succumb to AIDS while surviving the social, economic and personal struggles that are a part of the disease. Using dance and theatre as the vehicle for delivering these stories, performers provide a revealing, sensory experience that makes public those things we don’t normally talk about.
Ian and Gregory are on faculty at Margolis Method Center Int'l and are teaching master classes at Western Washington University and the Firehouse Performing Arts Center while Gregory is in Bellingham.
