The Shining


Presented by New York Live Arts – Back by popular demand, The Shining is a thrilling dance-installation set inside the intricate maze of 350 refrigerator boxes. Originally created and performed in 1993 at Performance Space 122 and in 1995 at PS1 Contemporary Art Center, this Bessie Award-winning work puts audience members and performers together in an extraordinarily crafted, living, breathing and inimitable environment.

About Yvonne Meier: Originally from Zurich, Switzerland, Yvonne Meier has lived and worked in New York City since 1979, where she became a member of the original group around Performance Space 122, regularly collaborating with Ishmael Houston-Jones, Jennifer Monson and many others in the US and Europe. Her work, spanning anywhere from big spectacles to quiet solos, has been supported by three Fellowships in Choreography from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, NEA Inter Arts, Franklin Furnace and Pro Helvetia. The American Masters program of the NEA has supported the upcoming recreation of her performance-instillation work, The Shining. She has received Bessie’s Awards for her works The Shining (1993) and Stolen (2009). She has twice been supported through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence program. In addition Meier has been teaching Releasing Technique and Authentic Movement nationally and internationally for the last 30 years. After a life-long commitment to improvisation she has developed her own improvisation technique known as Scores. Meier also teaches Children’s dance classes in NY Public Schools through Movement Research’s Dance Makers program.
