Can you separate the art from the artist? With Kathryn Posin, you get the feeling there’s no distinction between the dances and her. She must be just like her work: dainty, exuberant, sincere, and with the occasional flight of fancy that only makes sense to her.
Posin’s three-work program opens the five-week Harkness Dance Festival at the 92Y. Her terrific seven-member company plus guest artist Amar Ramasar, a principal from New York City Ballet, do some heavy lifting — both literal and figurative — throughout the evening. Perhaps an even bigger draw than the dancers is Meredith Monk who, along with Theo Bleckmann, sings selections from her 1990 album, Facing North for Posin’s Climate Control, a premiere.
