The Brooklyn Paper

As part of Brooklyn Arts Exchange’s "First Weekends New Performance and Discussion Series," three choreographers - Kelly Bartnik, Mare Hieronimus and Kayoko Sakoh (pictured) - will present their new works on Jan. 7 and Jan. 8.

Sakoh’s piece, "Bonno," includes a scroll of Japanese calligraphy that unrolls during the performance. The work’s title is the Buddhist term that describes the pain, affliction and carnal desire that are basic to the human psyche. Sakoh will perform "Bonno" with dancers Kim Grier, Nami Kagami and Kara Rosales.

Bartnik’s "Impressions" and Hieronimus’ "The Inevitability of Bone Attachment" will also be performed, followed by a discussion with the choreographers led by BAX Executive Director Marya Warshaw.

Performances are at 8 pm at the Brooklyn Arts Exchange (421 Fifth Ave. at Eighth Street in Park Slope). Admission is $15, $10 members and $8 low-income. For more information, visit the Web site at or call (718) 832-0018.
