A History can be viewed as both the evidence and performance of the creative conversation embedded in the last decade of Bebe Miller Company’s work. Viewed through the lens of a partnership, veteran Bebe Miller Company dancers Angie Hauser and Darrell Jones appear live and virtually to create a dynamic theater based performance and archeological inquiry. Under Miller’s direction, their nuanced dancing relationship is an opportunity to look at the way past ideas and experiences lead us forward.

Apr 12 Stay Late Discussion: Letter to the Artist with Eva Yaa Asantewaa (Dance Writer, Critic for Dance Magazine & InfiniteBody) (Bebe Miller responds to a letter written to her by Eva Yaa Asantewaa about A History)

Installation Info
On view Apr 11 - Apr 13 from 10am - 10pm in the
Ford Foundation Live Gallery at New York live Arts

Centering on two medis elements, the A History Installation is comprised of The Portrait Series, which contains side-by-side video portraits of various individuals who have formed a matrix of connections to Bebe Miller Company; and The Wedge, a table-sized view of Angie Hauser and Darrell Jones in action, created from Lily Skove's video imagery. These visual elements are accompanied by an audio soundtrack containing sound excerpts from the audio.

Bebe Miller Company’s A History was commissioned by the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University through its Wexner Center Artists Residency Award program and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A History was also developed with support from Wesleyan University’s Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance. The creation of A History was made possible with support from The Ohio State University’s College of Arts and Humanities Grants for Research and Creative Activity and the Department of Dance, as well as by Ohio State’s Advanced Computing Center for Arts and Design, Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute, and the Department of Women’s Studies and their Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women grant program. The creation and presentation of A History was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MetLife Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support for A History and Bebe Miller Company has been provided by the Multi-Arts Production Fund, a program of Creative Capital Foundation supported by The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Beasts and Plots investigates what happens when Welliver’s figurative and nonfigurative worlds collide. Inspired by Matt Mullican’s Glen, Oskar Schlemmer’s seminars on linear figures, Rebecca Horn’s performance films and Paul Klee’s portrait works, Beasts and Plots is a semi-narrative work that explores the outline of a woman’s body, a death and the idea of a unicorn.

Selfie, 2013
Gwen Welliver
Mixed-media "selfies"

During the process of making the dance Beasts and Plots, I developed and practiced movement scores in two mediums: dance and drawing. Some of these scores I considered self portraits, in that they demanded a translation of my anatomy, gender, age or fantasies from one medium to the other. Selfie is made from sixty such works on paper.

Beasts and Plots is commissioned by New York Live Arts and made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Jerome Foundation and by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts. The creation of Beasts and Plots was also supported through a residency partnership with the Museum of Art and Design (MAD). Beasts and Plots is made possible in part with the public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Inaugural Resident Comissioned Artist World Premiere

In one of the most anticipated events of our season, New York Live Arts will present the world premiere of Yasuko Yokoshi’s BELL. Hailed by Time Out New York as “a brave, postmodern intellect,” Yokoshi was appointed as the inaugural Resident Commissioned Artist (RCA) of New York Live Arts in July 2011.

For BELL, Yokoshi has assembled a multidisciplinary cast from Japan and the U.S. to perform in a contemporary reimagining of the classical Japanese dance Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojoji Temple), reputed to be the most important and most difficult dance work in the Kabuki theater repertoire.

BELL continues Yokoshi’s collaboration with Masumi Seyama, 82-year old master teacher of Kabuki Su-odori style dance and successor of renowned choreographer Kanjyuro Fujima VI. Through this collaboration, Yokoshi investigates the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the transgression of cultural boundaries.

Yasuko Yokoshi is New York Live Arts’ first Resident Commissioned Artist, receiving a two-year residency with salary, benefits and a commission to create a new work produced by New York Live Arts.

Mar 20 Stay Late Discussion: "BELL": Merging Traditional and Innovative Practices with Bill T. Jones

Sign up for Yasuko's Shared Practice class, Feb 23, 1:30-3:30pm, $15.

BELL is commissioned and produced by New York Live Arts through its Resident Commissioned Artist Program, with lead support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund. Support is also provided by the MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and the Japan Foundation.

BELL was developed, in part, at the University of Chicago with support from the Japan Committee and the Program in Theater and Performance Studies, and at the Herberger Institute School of Dance at Arizona State University with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. A solo work-in-progress version of BELL was presented by Dublin Dance Festival 2011.

World Premiere

poem and Secret Mary constitute the first two works of a multi-year, multi-venue project that will collapse three finished dances into a fourth culminating work in 2013. Each work features a different cast and point of departure. This series amplifies O’Connor’s affinity for developing distinctly unrelated strains of material and placing them into complex relational networks. Utilizing assemblage, layering and juxtaposition, he searches to create works that follow a choreographic logic devoid of narrative resolution. Through the constant reapplication of these elemental choreographic processes, O’Connor has searched for social resonances in dance. This project examines how cultures bleed into each other to create new relationships.
 
In poem, the second dance in the series, commissioned by New York Live Arts, O’Connor reexamines his career long obsession with artifice and formal structures in dance. The featured performers are Natalie Green, Michael Ingle, Oisín Monaghan, Heather Olson and Silas Riener. The first work in the series Secret Mary, is based on O’Connor’s mentoring relationships with young artists Tess Dworman, devynn emory, Ryan Kelly and Mary Read. It was originally presented as a work-in progress at the River to River Festival in the summer of 2012. Lighting design for the evening is by Michael O’Connor. The music for poem is composed by James Baker.

Nov 30 Stay Late Discussion: Interrogations: What is this dance doing? What are you reading in it? The audience asks questions of the dance. Moderated by Jenn Joy.

Journal to Journey is a four-month program that culminates in a showcase performance of new solo works created by young poets. These works by young poets navigate a path through hurt and hope on a journey towards self. Equipped with pen as compass and journal as road map, they discover that life is full of moments that will carry you as far and deep as you are willing to go. Poets are paired with Writing Mentor and Studio Series residency artist Regie Cabico and Director/Choreographer Nicco Annan.

World Premiere

Part Steven Sondheim and part The B-52’s, Commentary = not thing is a modern dance opera that unfolds into a series of kaleidoscopic movement passages, vocalizing scores and chanting and singing sequences. In this work, May — a choreographer devoted to abstraction and its ability to communicate the expressive body — examines social emotions such as compassion, embarrassment, shame, guilt and contempt, in an effort to generate a narrative that is fueled by the emotional happenings of the individuals in the group and the interpersonal events that unfold.

Feb 21 at 6:30 Come Early Discussion: Abstraction, Text, and the Emotional Body with Sarah Maxfield (Performance Creator and Curator)

Feb 22 Stay Late Discussion: Unpacking "Commentary = not thing" with Brian Rogers (Artistic Director, The Chocolate Factory)

Sign up for Juliana's Shared Practice class, Feb 2, 1:30-3:30pm, $15.

Co-presented with PS122's Coil Festival

A collaboration between choreographer Anne Juren and director Annie Dorsen, Magical is a solo dance piece enchantingly performed by Juren using the canon of feminist performance art and the rituals of a magic show. Playing with illusion, trickery and transformation, Juren devotes herself to the efficacy and secrets of the female body. The effect of simultaneous magic, choreography and performance entices spectators to see through the events on the stage.

A comic/subversive, neo-vaudeville version of The Nutcracker, Nut/Cracked returns to Live Arts for its 10th Anniversary performances! A journey into innocence through sustained fantasy, Nut/Cracked incorporates an enterprising mix of tap, ballet, contemporary, disco and even toe tap. The work’s 22 sections are accompanied by a mix of popular, jazz and novelty versions of the score and the traditional orchestral suite. By the end of the show, the cast has danced their way to a new kind of childhood replete with a thumb-sucking fantasia to the Grand Pas de Deux. In addition to The Bang Group, each show features a different group of teenage guest artists from dance schools throughout New York City.

Program B: Sep 21 – 22
Sombra with Maria Helena Pinto (Mozambique)
Madame Plaza with Bouchra Ouizguen (Morocco)

A mini-festival featuring five female African choreographers, the performances are sophisticated expressions of the complex lives these women live globally. Through traditionally-rooted dance and bold contemporary idioms, this twoevening program tackles diverse political and social themes that articulate women’s struggles toward empowerment with humor, poignancy and courage.

Program A features Correspondances, a raucous yet intimate duet by Kettly Noël and Nelisiwe Xaba that explores race, culture, gender and friendship; and Quartiers Libres, a commanding solo by Nadia Beugré with interactive sound exploring the struggle between cultural boundaries and personal freedom.

Program B begins with Sombra by Maria Helena Pinto, a stark and poignant solo that gives voice to the lives of “invisible” women who push society forward; followed by Madame Plaza, a profoundly contemporary piece by Bouchra Ouizguen featuring three Aïta vocalists, whose traditional technique includes guttural wailing and incantation.

This presentation is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council, with support from Speaker Christine C. Quinn.

Rude Mechs is proud to rebirth Dionysus in 69, The Performance Group’s radical 1968 re-imagining of The Bacchae. The company remounts this piece as faithfully as possible to Richard Schechner’s original staging using Brian de Palma’s film and the 1970 book, Dionysus in 69, as primary sources. The Rude Mechs production is the first-ever remounting of this legendary work, and it finally returns to New York City 44 years after its premiere. The Performance Group’s Dionysus in 69 was the first of its kind environmental theater production performed at the Performing Garage, featuring an extraordinary combination of groundbreaking milestones including audience interaction and full-frontal nudity of both women and men.

E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E is an epic, town hall musical that pleads the case for a more empathetic economy, proposing, with Thomas Paine and Martin Luther King, money as everyone’s. Created by choreographer Daria Faïn and poet Robert Kocik, in collaboration with composer Katherine Young, vocalist Samita Sinha and The Commons Choir, E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E was developed by researching the sonic and connotative powers of language. 26 dancers, singers and actors treat our current inequity crisis with reparative tones, tunes and intentions while drawing on the body as horn of plenty.

French neuroscientist Lionel Naccache discusses conscious and unconscious cognition. Following the talk, French company Oh ! Oui... (Joachim Latarjet and Alexandra Fleischer) will perform Songs for My Brain, a performance based on the research of Lionel Naccache. Songs for My Brain explores the power of the mind which at any given moment is creating fiction and inventing scenarios — What tomorrow will bring? What your friend thinks of you? What was that ruckus you heard last night? — in a never-ending stream of thought provoking stories that fuel our consciousness.

This event is presented as part of “Walls and Bridges,” a 10-day French-American arts and ideas festival curated by the Villa Gillet, a French cultural institute interested in thought in all its expressions, bringing together thinkers and artists from all over the world; and is co-presented with Les Subsistances, an international laboratory for live arts based in Lyon, France. villagillet.net

*Please note that Daniel Kahneman, who was originally scheduled to be a part of the discussion with Lionel Naccache, is unable to participate due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict.

World Premiere

The Daedalus Effect and other dilemmas assumes the mythical persona of Daedalus, the taciturn engineer who invented the labyrinth, and Icarus, his ill-fated son, as metaphors for the pitfalls of product development. Modular objects created by invited guests (writers, sculptors, mathematicians, architects, engineers) are placed throughout the space as improvisational scores for this solo dance performance. Like puzzle pieces, combinations of the objects generate physical dilemmas that prompt strings of full-body gestures.

"…take something and do something to it, and then do something else to it..."
-Jasper Johns

Performed with live musicians, Play and Play applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time. Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart or Schubert this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together. Repertory includes D-Man in the Waters (1989), Bill T. Jones’s joyful tour de force and a genuine modern dance classic, as well as Spent Days Out Yonder (2001), a sublime reflection on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major and Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012), set to Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major, reflects the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint..

"…take something and do something to it, and then do something else to it..."
-Jasper Johns

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns to the Joyce Theater in New York City this spring for an extended two week run of performances including two New York premieres!

The Company commemorates thirty years of creativity and impact with Play and Play: an evening of movement and music, featuring two programs both featuring live music by the Orion String Quartet.

Program A includes:

Spent Days Out Yonder, set to Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23, is a pure musical exploration with movement firmly rooted in Mr. Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary.

Continuous Replay originally choreographed by Arnie Zane in 1977 as the solo work, Hand Dance, and later revised as a group work by Bill T. Jones in 1991. Continuous Replay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time set to a score by Jerome Begin that combines motifs from Beethoven’s first and last string quartets with recorded sound to create a surprising soundscape.

D-Man in the Waters, set to Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings in E-flat Major, Op. 20, is an award-winning, joyful tour de force that has not been seen in New York since 2002.  It is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that guides audiences through loss, hope, and triumph.

Program B
Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) set to the third movement of Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major reflects the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint.  New York Premiere

Story/ (2013) is the latest result of the company’s continued investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Created using one of the random menus generated for a performance of the acclaimed Story/Time, Story/ (2013) uses Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft a conversation between the music and the movement.  New York Premiere

Programs include nudity

Body Against Body returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

Repertory includes Duet x2, Blauvelt Mountain, and the classic Continuous Replay.

Director and choreographer Bill T. Jones - whose major honors include a MacArthur "Genius" Award, the Kennedy Center Honors and two Tony Awards for Best Choreography - returns to the stage in a new work for his renowned company. Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage's Indeterminacy, a performance of seventy one-minute stories, Jones creates a landscape of dance, music, and story, arranged anew for each performance by chance procedure. Story/Time finds Jones engaging in the time-honored art of storytelling while also questioning the structure of the form. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach, randomness and structure trump the taste and personality of the artist to create a unique event that reflects on the relentless passage of time and our memory of it. Original music composed by Ted Coffey will accompany the diverse company of dancers.

Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage's Indeterminacy, a performance of seventy one-minute stories, Jones creates a landscape of dance, music, and story, arranged anew for each performance by chance procedure. Story/Time finds Jones engaging in the time-honored art of storytelling while also questioning the structure of the form. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach, randomness and structure trump the taste and personality of the artist to create a unique event that reflects on the relentless passage of time and our memory of it. Original music composed by Ted Coffey will accompany the diverse company of dancers.

Cléo from 5 to 7
Film Screening

3pm
$5 Advance/ $7 At Door

New York Live Arts will screen Agnes Varda's 1961 New Wave film, Cléo from 5 to 7, which inspired Big Dance Theater's Bessie Award-winning theater work Comme Toujours Here I Stand. Shot in Paris in 1961, Cléo from 5 to 7 tracks the early evening hours in the life of a marginally talented pop singer as she waits to hear if she has terminal cancer. Big Dance Theater reinvents the film for the stage by using the script as a found object to create an intimate portrait of a woman shadowed by death, while still caught up in the breezy pleasures of the day: shopping, visiting, strolling. Comme Toujours Here I Stand serves also as a critique of the flexible and facile nature of the medium of film when set against the handmade qualities of live dance and theater.

Turbulence (a dance about the economy) plays with normative disruptions and calculated disregard for generally accepted rules of engagement. A collaborative creation, the work is an experimental hybrid of contemporary dance, improvised happening and political theater; it is a bodily response to economic crisis.

Instigated before Occupy, and engaging questions of debt, value and exchange, Turbulence is intended as both provocation and affirmation of the current global movement.

Performer/collaborators:
Julie Phelps, Emily Leap, Laura Arrington, Jesse Hewit, Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos, Hana Erdman, Gabriel Todd, Ruairí O'Donovan, Empress Jupiter, Jassem Hindi, Keith Hennessy.

Guest artists:
Ishmael Houston-Jones, Dana Michel (Montréal), AK Burns.

"Castro's Paradis feels like it grew organically out of the ground (or descended from the heavens), like the lovely trees and flowers that cover the garden’s fifty-two lush acres. No mere spectacle, the piece invites the viewer to become part of a magical experience, a fitting tribute to the beauty of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the endless imagination of Castro and her company."
- This Week In New York

After last year's sold-out run of Paradis, New York Live Arts and Brooklyn Botanic Garden have partnered, with the support of a regrant from the Brooklyn Arts Council, to bring Paradis back.  Paradis is a performance and audio installation with live piano performed outdoors at twilight. Inspired by the final section of Jean-Luc Godard's 2004 film, "Notre Musique," Paradis continues Castro's exploration of the space between the performer and audience member: the tension in the simultaneous experience of distance and intimacy inherent in the live event. Paradis premiered June 2-4, 2011 at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, presented by Dance Theater Workshop. It was the first site-based dance work in the Garden's 100-year history.

Direction & Choreography: Yanira Castro
Performance & Choreography: Peggy Cheng, Daniel Clifton, Simon Courchel, Shayla-Vie Jenkins, Luke Miller, Peter Schmitz (soloist), Pamela Vail, Kimberly Young, Darrin Wright
Sound Installation: Stephan Moore
Pianist: Michael Dauphinais

Paradis was created, in part, with the support of The Jerome Foundation and the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), and through The Field's Field Artist Residency program, supported by Lambent Foundation Fund of the Tides Foundation. The remount of Paradis at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

Culminating a year’s work with world-renowned dance educator and choreographer Ellen Robbins, each student creates his or her own dance solo, steeped in the unmistakable individualism that resides in every child. Their works span a variety of theater experiences: humorous, dramatic, lyrical, minimal, abstract. Music selections also cover a broad range from Bach and Stravinsky to Ratatat.


Each of the five unique concerts consists of solos by the students and two of the following group pieces: Waterstudy, Carnival of the Animals, Extra Genre, Garden Party, Ode, Rainforest, Secret Service, Towel Dance, Palimpsest, and *SIGH*.

Ellen Robbins’ Annual Student Concerts are funded, in part, by Jody and John Arnhold, The W Trust, and the Ellen Robbins Parents’ Committee Fund.

“KDNY was clean and sharp, sleek and stoic, geometric and postmodern... It was a thrill to watch.”
- Dance Magazine

In A Complex Sum, choreographer Kathleen Dyer takes inspiration from iconic female philosopher Ayn Rand’s Romantic Manifesto. In these essays, Rand champions the individual and elaborately relates art as idealism viewed through one’s own understanding. Dyer’s movement vocabulary, a fusion of graceful virtuosity and idiosyncratic nuances, captures the oscillating nature of the ideal amid a community of minds. To an original score for string quartet by NY composer, Cristina Spinei, Ms. Dyer uses movable sets and projected video to construct layers of warmth, entanglement or comedy so that each moment offers multiple definitions and rearrangements of our observations.

The West Village Musical Theatre Festival (WVMTF) cultivates a new generation of composers, lyricists and book writers willing to innovate and reinvigorate the musical theatre genre. The annual festival offers a theatrical tasting menu, in the format of four series of six short musicals, where each musical is 10-15 minutes in length. Some works are stand alone pieces, while others are sections of a larger work. With each series running under 90 minutes, audiences can enjoy a great variety of substance and style in a single evening.

“One does not just watch a dance by Zvi Gotheiner. One enters a world with its own internal logic, a sensual, organic world of movement, language, and images where one is pulled along by currents unseen and inevitable.”
- Dance Magazine

Led by Israeli-born Artistic Director Zvi Gotheiner, ZviDance will premiere DABKE, a contemporary dance inspired by this ancient Middle-Eastern folk dance. Arabic for “stomping the ground,” Dabke is the national dance of Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Palestine; Israelis have their own version. Mr. Gotheiner’s DABKE uses the power of dance to highlight tribal and national identities as well as dissolve those definitions. Reflecting on the recent “Arab Spring” movement that ignited the Middle-East with unstoppable forces for change, Gotheiner aspires to celebrate this trend, and by creating DABKE, acknowledges its ripple effect on all of us.

“Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion … she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production.”
- Inside New York

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre productions engage audiences in original and dynamic dance theatre that raise questions, challenge social norms, and magnifies humanity through dance. Using physical dynamics, luscious movement, and theatrical elements, Detour continually shifts the experience of perception. Turning movement inside out, the work plays with timing and musicality, stillness and repetition, spatial design and direction.

Director and choreographer Bill T. Jones - whose major honors include a MacArthur "Genius" Award, the Kennedy Center Honors and two Tony Awards for Best Choreography - returns to the stage in a new work for his renowned company. Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage's Indeterminacy, a performance of seventy one-minute stories, Jones creates a landscape of dance, music, and story, arranged anew for each performance by chance procedure. Story/Time finds Jones engaging in the time-honored art of storytelling while also questioning the structure of the form. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach, randomness and structure trump the taste and personality of the artist to create a unique event that reflects on the relentless passage of time and our memory of it. Original music composed by Ted Coffey will accompany the diverse company of dancers.

For its thirtieth anniversary, the Company will create a major new dance-theater work bringing together two leading American directors and their companies. A Rite  is an intriguing and powerful collaboration between artists Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart and their respective companies – Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company. Coinciding with the one-hundredth anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Jones and Bogart combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time.

Artists’ statement:
Our intention is to create a meditation upon the phenomenon of the encounter with Igor Stravinsky’s music and with the history that the piece carries upon its back.  We are taking the work apart and putting it back together again in a way that we both hope will speak to audiences everywhere.  The music is prime and the social-historical context is a point of departure as is the community created by the joining of our two companies.  We both believe that the work allows us the opportunity to reflect upon the human condition: sacrifice; creative and spiritual rebirth; the individual against or with the community.  Much of the spoken text will be by Jonah Lehrer from his chapter on Stravinsky in his bestselling book Proust Was a Neuroscientist.  The result will not be a re-construction of the performance and subsequent riot at the infamous Parisian premiere, but rather a deconstruction of the music and its impact upon the development of the human mind.
– Anne Bogart & Bill T. Jones

World Premiere in January 2013 at Carolina Performing Arts, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
 

A Rite was commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A Rite was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Additional commissioning support provided by: The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College.

The Gift/No God Logic, set to music from Verdi's Forza del Destino, is a beautiful, sparse work choreographed by Arnie Zane.  The dance develops through a strikingly restrained and precise physical vocabulary.  Dancers move together and apart, but always with compassion and awareness of one another.  The apparent simplicity of the work belies its technical difficulty.  To quote Jennifer Dunning in her 1988 review of the work, “It is a dance of memorable simplicity and un-ironic emotion."

In intimacy, Levi Gonzalez attempts to bring the practice of making into the moment of live performance. In constructing material for this work, he prioritized instinct over concept, cultivating a sensitivity to the idiosyncracies of his own interests in movement and performance. Often framing the action with language, he establishes a directness with the spectator that resists metaphor, while still leaving space for the engagement of the imagination. Ultimately the work examines the intimacy of the relationship between performer and audience, and how we navigate this shared experience. The solo was developed in collaboration with dramaturg Susan Mar Landau.

David Neumann/Advanced Beginner Group “Restless Eye” (work-in-process to premiere at Live Arts March 24-April 1)

Commissioned by the DTW Commissioning Fund

David Neumann/Advanced Beginner Group's inclusive embrace of disciplines springs from an interest in the mind as a complex phenomenological experience, articulated on our declining bodies. In Restless Eye, Advanced Beginner Group explores the realm between thought and behavior, between describing life and experiencing it. Through a collision of digital technology and a deeply physical vocabulary, Restless Eye will bring together the madness of everyday events with the vast patterns that shape our inexplicable lives. Ultimately, it's how we bring our attention to what's in front of us that allows art to transform us as creators and observers.

Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group theREVISITATION work-in-process to premiere at Live Arts as part of the Replay Series March 14-17, 2011)

Reconstruction supported by the DTW Commissioning Fund

theREVISITATION is the simple and intricate exercise of looking back to look forward. Selected previous performance works are cut, pasted and merged with new ideas, thoughts, realities and perspectives, and crafted into a vehicle for Wilson to reflect on his past, his approach to his body and its idiomatic movement. It is a reexamination of the artist’s moving body and his provocative body of work.

work-in-process presentation of new work to premiere at Live Arts spring 2013

As part of her appointment as New York Live Arts' 2011-2013 Resident Commissioned Artist , Yasuko Yokoshi will create a new dance-theater work that continues her in-depth research of the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the authenticity and ownership of culture. Working with her long-time collaborator Masumi Seyama, successor of Kabuki master Kanjyuro Fujima VI, BELL will reimagine the classical Japanese dance Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojyoji Temple), reputed to be the most important and difficult work in the Kabuki theater repertoire.

(Originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop’s Commissioning and Creative Residency Program, and premiered in February 2011)

In Gutter Gate, Juliana F. May splices, blends, and dilutes sections to deconstruct notions of craft and composition, ultimately pruning back a certain level of glossiness. Movement material and spatial structures are developed through a rigorous process of layering and culling units of time and tone. Formal concerns are challenged to convey the necessity of abstraction in communicating the relationship between feeling and form. With performances by Benjamin Asriel, Madeline Best, Anna Carapetyan, Eleanor Smith, and Maggie Thom, and original music by Chris Seeds.

Spent Days Out Yonder is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, set to the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The movement is firmly rooted in Mr. Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, challenging dancers to move with ease, efficiency and physical honesty through the sublime score.

Bill T Jones’s joyful tour-de-force, D-Man in the Waters, is a true classic of modern dance and a New York Dance and Performance (“Bessie”) Award-winning work. It is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that guides audiences through loss, hope and triumph. Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings in E-flat Major, Op. 20 the work is one of the finest examples of the post-modern aesthetic and was featured in PBS’s landmark film Dancing in the Light – Six Dances by African-American Choreographers.

Two-time Tony Award™ winner and contemporary performance icon Bill T. Jones returns for year two of his GAMMAGE RESIDENCY.  Jones will present Body Against Body, which revives and reconsiders the duets and solos that launched Jones and Zane on the international dance scene of the early 80s and redefined the dance landscape of the day. These pieces remain some of the most significant examples of postmodern performance. Both physically and conceptually rigorous, they challenge performer and viewer through their notions of task-based movement and non-narrative structure. Body Against Body explores the uncompromising balance of seemingly conflicting ideas underlying all of the company's work: challenge or cooperation, structuralism versus pure athletics, abstract formality against raw introspective words. Please note, this performance contains nudity.

Body Against Body returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

Bill T. Jones in Conversation moderated by Leigh Wilson Smiley kicks off the 2011-2012 Dean's Lecture Series.

 
"For me, the big struggle has been to find a place in the world through identity, history, and love...Though I move on, I must always ask the questions: Whom do I love, and what values are worth holding on to?" - Bill T. Jones
 
Earlier this year, NPR's Tom Ashbrook said, "Dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones is a force of nature.  Artist.  Exhibitionist. Contrarian. Crowd-pleaser. He’s been denounced and picketed – and hailed as a genius... Dance Master, Bill T. Jones."
 
Join College of Arts and Humanities students for an open conversation with this provocative, award-winning artist who was named “An Irreplaceable Dance Treasure” by the Dance Heritage Coalition in 2000 and is internationally acclaimed as a trailblazer with a "fearless reflection of political concerns in his work."

(BIG GIRLS DO BIG THINGS) is an expedition into the surface-oriented world of a performer. In Eleanor Bauer’s hilarious, inventive solo, that which should be shouted is whispered, and that which should be whispered is sung. A performance about scale, volume, and extreme limits, (BGDBT) explores the vulnerability of performing with Bauer’s trademark intelligence and panache. Curated by Lana Wilson.

Pre-Show Talk Sep 21 at 6pm with Bill T. Jones and Marcia B. Siegel

Post-Show with Bill T. Jones, Janet Wong, Carla Peterson and the Company Sep 23

Program A: Sep 16, 18, 21, 23, 25
Monkey Run Road (1979), Continuous Replay (1977/1991)*, Valley Cottage: A Study (1980)**

Program B: Sep 17, 20, 22, 24
Duet x 2 (1982), Continuous Replay (1977/1991)*, Blauvelt Mountain (1980)**

Body Against Body returns to Bill T. Jones's roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. These works, two of which premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in the '80s, include some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic; pieces that redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones's company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer. The program includes the newly reconstructed duets Valley Cottage: A Study (1980) and Monkey Run Road (1979), pieces not seen in New York City since their premiere performances.

 

* Performed with surprise special guests
** Premiered at Dance Theater Workshop

Bill T. Jones sees Chapel/Chapter in its present form as the beginning of an investigation. As always, the work is proceeding from a set of questions. For Jones the lead question might be, "How can this event suggest the uneasy distance our mediatized era helps create between the passive observers which we are and the disturbing, sometimes incomprehensible 'news items' we encounter every day. At this stage of his thinking, the choreographer/director sees Chapel/Chapter as a site specific work meaning that while he would ideally install the environment created by set designer Bjorn Amelan, videographer Janet Wong and lighting designer Robert Wierzel in a non-conventional space, even a conventional performing venue will be subject to some rethinking. The goal of Chapel/Chapter is to create an intimate experience between the audience and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company as it retells three stories, two of them high visibility news items and one a reminiscence/confession offered by a company member.

Chapel/Chapter's spirit is conveyed through live music performed by an ensemble of contemporary musicians: voicestrumentalist Lipbone Redding, a singer/multi-instrumentalist who has been variously described as a vocal trickster and experimental cowboy; cellist Christopher Lancaster, who creates multi-layered, textural music through the use of real-time samplers and effect processing; and soprano Alicia Hall Moran, a classical singer whose influences range from opera to jazz and art song.

The movement vocabulary represents a serious departure for the company. It has been generated through highly formal means whereby the dancers imagine their movements to be existing on invisible keyboards that allow them to spell out terse, sometimes ironic, truisms such as: "The road to hell is paved in any way you like." The road to heaven is not paved." "These roads look the same so don't get lost!" This formal exercise results in hyper-physical, aggressively virtuosic dance material, oftentimes held strictly on the floor grid drawing that suggests a nave divided into ten equal squares and an apse.


The choreographer hopes the piece is able to create a self-enclosed world and a language made up of song, music and words (court transcripts, newspaper articles and jailhouse interviews) in dialog with a rigorous, joyful movement vocabulary. Chapel/Chapter proceeds from the assumption that we always live in the court of public opinion, transgression and judgment. The piece strives to invite that reading of the "real world" to come into the intimacy of a freely imagined contemplative space.

Continuing his tradition of thought-provoking work, Bill T. Jones commemorates the Abraham Lincoln bicentennial with a production exploring the life and legacy of this complex figure. Commissioned by Chicago’s Ravinia Festival, the dance-theater evening features the sophisticated movement of his diverse dancers accompanied by an original score for cello, guitar, piano and voice, performed live. The films of Janet Wong fill a striking, modern stage design while the conflicts that defined Lincoln’s time are embodied in the dance as the swirling forces of a maelstrom. Singers and an actor deliver a probing and uplifting libretto drawn from the Old Testament, the poems of Whitman, and Lincoln’s own words. The phrase taken from Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address to title the work, Fondly Do We Hope… Fervently Do We Pray captures the vision of the piece: an examination of what Lincoln and his time mean today, and our hopes for the future.

Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do Pray was commissioned by Ravinia Festival with co-commissioning support provided by Lincoln Center Festival and Indiana University Auditorium. Development support provided by Performing Arts Center Purchase College.

Director and choreographer Bill T. Jones – whose major honors include a MacArthur “Genius” Award, the Kennedy Center Honors and two Tony Awards for Best Choreography – returns to the stage at the center of an acclaimed new work for his renowned company. Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy, a performance of ninety one-minute stories interrupted by a chance musical score, Jones creates a collage of dance, music, and seventy of his own short stories, arranged anew for each performance by chance procedure.

In Story/Time, Jones fuses the age-old art of storytelling with a vibrant landscape of contemporary movement and music. Similar to a busy streetscape or a crowded room, the experience challenges audience members to find meaning and connection in the sweep of randomized, disparate elements. Jones’ short stories are drawn from his own life and tales handed down through the generations of his family. In layering a traditional form against the avant-garde compositional concerns of the mid- century modernists, the tension between high and low art is called in to question.

In his first project with the Company, composer, musician, and intermedia artist Ted Coffey, Ph.D. composes and performs a new acoustic and electronic score that draws upon chance procedure and interactive technologies. In Open Space, Newton Armstrong describes Coffey’s music as “subtle, weird and devoid of heroics. It’s the kind of music that resonates for days after you’ve heard it, and its spaces and gestures continue to form into new and extraordinary geometries.”

Long-time Company collaborators Robert Wierzel (lighting design), Bjorn Amelan (décor), and Liz Prince (costume design) designed the immersive, minimalist stage environment.

Co-commissioned by Peak Performances @ Montclair State (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

Developed in residence at Arizona State University Gammage Auditorium, Bard College, Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University, University of Virginia, and the Walker Art Center.

When the Wolves Came In, a stand-alone repertory-based program, explores the historical legacy of two totemic triumphs in the international history of civil rights: the 150thanniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 20th anniversary of the abolishment of apartheid in South Africa. The works take their inspiration from Max Roach’s iconic 1960 protest album We Insist: Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite, which celebrated the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation and shed a powerful light on the growing civil rights movements in South Africa and the U.S. The potent themes inherent in these historical milestones are evident in Abraham’s choreography, evocative scenery by visual artist Glenn Ligon, the visceral power of Roach’s masterwork and original compositions of Grammy® Award-winning jazz musician Robert Glasper.

Performed with live musicians*, Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Music applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time. Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Ravel or Schubert this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together.

Program A

D-Man in the Waters (1989)
“In a dream you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy.”- Jenny Holzer

Bill T Jones’s joyful tour-de-force, D-Man in the Waters, is a true classic of modern dance and a two time New York Dance and Performance (“Bessie”) Award-winning work. It is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that guides audiences through loss, hope and triumph. Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings. in E-flat Major, Op. 20 the work is one of the finest examples of the post-modern aesthetic and was featured in PBS’s landmark film Dancing in the Light – Six Dances by African-American Choreographers.

Spent Days Out Yonder (2000)

Spent Days Out Yonder is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, set to the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The movement is firmly rooted in Mr. Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, challenging dancers to move with ease, efficiency and physical honesty through the sublime score.

Continuous Replay (1977, revised 1991)

Continuous Replay reflects Arnie Zane’s interests in photography and film. Originally choreographed by Zane in 1977 as a solo titled Hand Dance and later revised as a group work by Bill T. Jones in 1991, Continuous Replay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time, cunningly complicated by discrete movement events. A newly commissioned score for string octet by Jerome Begin combines motifs from Beethoven’s first and last string quartets with recorded sounds to create a surprising soundscape. Can be performed with or without nudity.

* Requires local string octet at each engagement

Program B

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012)

This new work responds to Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major (1903), reflecting the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint. Similar to the music’s complicated internal logic, one of two choreographic variations for the third movement (either landscape or portrait) is selected by chance procedure before each performance.

Story/ (2013)

Story/ is the latest result of the company’s continued investigation in using John Cage’s Indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is accompanied by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 (Death and the Maiden) to craft a conversation between the music and the movement.

* Requires local string quartet at each engagement

One of three works that grew from Bill T. Jones’ interest in Abraham Lincoln, Serenade/The Proposition is described as his first attempt to grapple with issues of historical weight using the tools of dance and theater. What results is a spirited and lyrical sixty-minute production that moves gracefully from images and texts of early America to contemporary ideas of identity and belonging described in the dancers’ own words. What does history look like to someone born in 1981? How does his perception differ from someone born in 1954? Or 1881? Questions of historical perspective are close at hand in the piece, balanced by inventive group movement and dynamic solos set on a stage of movable columns animated by video projection.  Evoking the sounds and sentiments of Lincoln’s era, the original live score draws from Mozart’s Requiem, “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “Dixie” to create a contemporary, playful musical collage for cello, piano and soprano.

Info on the Toni Morrison Lecture Series>

Tickets are required for admission and can be ordered from the Princeton University Ticketing Office by calling (609) 258-9220.

Acclaimed director and choreographer Bill T. Jones will deliver a three-part presentation for the annual Toni Morrison Lectures on April 17, 19, and 24 at Princeton University. Sponsored jointly by the Center for African American Studies and Princeton University Press, the Toni Morrison Lectures spotlight the new and exciting work of scholars and writers who have risen to positions of prominence both in academe and in the broader world of letters. The lectures celebrate the expansive literary imagination, intellectual adventurousness and political insightfulness that characterize the writing of Toni Morrison. Established in 2006, past lecturers have included Cornel West, Edwidge Danticat, and The Honorable Cory Booker.

Jones’s lectures, entitled “The Life of an Idea,” will investigate belonging, appropriating and adapting in the context of time in three parts: Past Time, Story/Time, and With Time. The lectures will be compiled and published in book form by Princeton University Press.
 
In Past Time (April 17 at 8pm, Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall), Jones reflects on the moment he entered the conversation about creative practice, aesthetic hierarchy, history, and “the modernist project” from the point of view of dance and body-based art making. John Cage's thoughts and philosophy on the subject of composition as reported in his book Silence figure prominently as Jones discusses the dislocation and discomfort he experienced when attempting to emulate Cage’s paradigm. Questions of identity, aesthetic value, and criticism will be explored.

Story/Time (April 19 at 8pm, McCosh Hall) is a reading of sixty stories by Jones, each one minute long, from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company’s newest work, Story/Time (2012). Aphoristic, informal, ambiguous and often intensely personal, the stories offer a reluctant self-portrait of the artist, who will be accompanied by Story/Time composer Ted Coffey. A composer of acoustic and electronic chamber music, interactive installations, and songs, Coffey will contribute the results of his own investigation and responses to the John Cage idiom. Coffey is a graduate of Princeton University (MFA, PhD) and currently an Associate Professor at the University of Virginia, where he teaches courses in composition, music technologies, critical theory, and pop. Story/Time set designer and Creative Director of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Bjorn G. Amelan, will also participate by creating a drawing in real-time as part of the performance-lecture.

In the final lecture, With Time (April 24 at 8pm in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall), Jones discusses how his thinking about art-making has evolved over time, while addressing the constant fight for relevance, inspiration, and the tenacity needed to sustain a creative life.

"I am honored to have been invited to be the first artist of the new Resident Commissioned Artist program at New York Live Arts. Support at this level in our field is so rare. This opportunity gives me a great challenge to show how significant dance can be for our lives. I look forward to working in partnership with New York Live Arts, and hope that this new program, as it evolves, will provide an increasingly bright future for artists as they contribute to the culture of New York City and beyond.” - Yasuko Yokoshi 

As part of her appointment as New York Live Arts' 2011-2013 Resident Commissioned Artist , Yasuko Yokoshi will create a new dance-theater work that continues her in-depth research of the parallel aesthetics of traditional and contemporary forms and the authenticity and ownership of culture. Working with her long-time collaborator Masumi Seyama, successor of Kabuki master Kanjyuro Fujima VI, BELL will reimagine the classical Japanese dance Kyoganoko Musume-Dojyoji (A Woman and a Bell at the Dojyoji Temple), reputed to be the most important and difficult work in the Kabuki theater repertoire. 

Yasuko Yokoshi was born in Hiroshima, Japan and lives and works in New York City. She has received commissions for directing and choreographing from P.S.122, Danspace Project, The Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Théâtre de la Ville (France), Festival a/d Werf (Holland), Festival Sommer SIZEN (Austria), and Frascati Theater (Holland). Awards include a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship, 2008 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Fellowship, a 2007 BAXTen Award, and two New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards (2003 and 2006). Yokoshi is a curatorial adviser at the Kitchen and also serves on the board of directors of Movement Research.
