Event Description

"Ms. Kim is a smart, analytical artist, creating works that challenge personal and cultural assumptions... her choreography, often drawing on deeply personal experiences, relies on a gripping, dreamlike logic."
- Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times

"Undoubtedly smart and talented."
-Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice [Placid Baby]

Darling is a black comedy disguised as a horror film disguised as a dance. Inspired by the genre subversion and dysfunctional family dynamics of the 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,' Darling exposes killers, cannibals, half-wits and the sexually demented for who they really are - monsters with extraordinary human qualities who must put up with the shaming and nagging of their insufferable families, just like everyone else. Darling answers the burning question, "What do butchers and cannibals do in their off-time? And, how do they do it?" Darling is essentially the story of family - necessary, painful, horrific, and ultimately laughable.

Performed by Inka Juslin, Sam Kim, Ryan McNamara, and Liz Santoro

SAM KIM makes dances that focus on the margins of culture and behavior, creating space for vulnerability while courting danger. Since 2002, Sam has created dumb dumb bunny (The Kitchen, 2007), Cult (Dance Theater Workshop, 2007), AVATAR (Mulberry St Theater, 2006), Nobody Understands Me (Dance Theater Workshop, 2004), Placid Baby (Performance Space 122, 2003) and Valentine (Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church, 2002). She has created several shorter works since 1997.

Darling was created, in part, through the Artist in Residence Program at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange with support, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and with private funds from the Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Darling was created, in part, with support from The Lucky Star Foundation.
