Four characters emerge, absorbed in duality and contradiction, pointing towards order yet prolonging, and ultimately celebrating, the chance to be alone. All four PNDT performers meld various and highly physical movement styles to create a dynamic exposure of how we navigate a disoriented existence.

The first work created by Yossi Berg and Oded Graf, Heroes has been remounted for the company’s 10th anniversary. This award-winning duet addresses the desire for intimacy and communication in an alienated world. The need to be liked, to be loved, and to cope with reality becomes a source of inspiration for surprising movement. Accompanied by the music of David Bowie, two men play a game whose rules change from one moment to the next as they attempt to free themselves from old habits and escape into fantasy.

“Sometimes everything about a dance performance seems right,” proclaimed The New Yorker about Helga And The Three Sailors, which had a successful run at Danspace Project in 2014. Now choreographer Netta Yerushalmy brings back her mesmerizing piece – for one performance only – to Joyce Unleashed. Featuring music composed and performed live by Judith Berkson, Yerushalmy and dancers Marc Crousillat, Amanda Kmett’Pendry and Sarah Lifson build on layers of time, color, shape and space to present a work that is both inspired by and a challenge to the choreographer’s personal history.

 

Hillel Kogan - We Love Arabs

A “true masterpiece by all measures” (The Jerusalem Post), We Love Arabs is a satirical dance theater piece that explores the ethnic divide between Arabs and Jews living in Israel. Telling the story of a Jewish choreographer (Kogan) and an Arab dancer (Adi Boutros) working together to create a piece with a message of co-existence and peace, this award-winning duet uses everything from humor to hummus to address the anxiety, fear and prejudice fostered by decades of conflict.

Body Against Body (2011) returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched the career of 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 an iconoclastic artistic sensibility. As New York Magazine says, “The combination of brisk formality and a deeply sensual attack.was riveting decades ago and it’s riveting today.” Commissioned by the ICA/Boston.

Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director, Janet Wong, and his company present the first of three new evening length works titled, Analogy: A Trilogy. This trilogy brings into light the different types of war we fight and, in particular, the war within ourselves. Analogy: A Trilogy searches for the connection between three varying stories; focusing on memory and the effect of powerful events on the actions of individuals and, more importantly, on their often unexpressed inner life. Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling and movement pull and push against each other and how another experience can be had through the combination and recombination of these elements.

Live Ideas 2015 has commissioned New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning choreographer Beth Gill to create a performance event. Known for "entirely engrossing" and “precise choreography [that] reveals painterly dimensions” (The New York Times), Gill’s original work for Live Ideas layers live dance and sound against a field of shifting color and hue created by lighting designer Thomas Dunn. Gill has gathered together a cross-section of celebrated New York City dance artists—including but not limited to Neal Beasley, Eleanor Hullihan, John Jasperse, Jodi Melnick, Stuart Singer, David Thomson, Meg Weeks and Emily Wexler—to perform short autobiographical solos that collect in the space over the course of the hour. This ongoing installation is highlighted by moments of live music performed by Eliot Krimsky and Ryan Seaton.

The second half of the evening will give Live Arts’ audience an opportunity to witness Laurie Anderson and Deborah Hay in the early stages of their collaboration. The two prolific artists are collaborating to create Figure A Sea, a new evening-length work for the Cullberg Ballet, which will premiere in Stockholm from September 25-27, 2015.

Based on a novel by Cesare Zavattini, Miracle in Milan is De Sica’s 1951 follow-up to his earlier film The Bicycle Thief. A René Clair-inspired social fantasy, the film depicts a fight between a troop of shantytown poor and the industrialist, eager to explore for oil beneath their village. The revolutionaries are led by a young visionary named Toto, armed with enthusiasm and a magic dove. De Sica’s film—both humanist and wistful—unfolds with an underlying discourse surrounding social ills and how they should be rectified.

Julian Schnabel (Basquiat & The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) directed the incredible journey through the life and work of the late Cuban novelist Reinaldo Arenas. As a teenager Arenas marched to Havana with Fidel Castro and was educated by the revolution, but when his books were not a hymn to the revolution they were censored and he was jailed for his sexuality.

Arenas endured unspeakable persecution in a courageous stand against censorship and oppression. Without a country but not without integrity, he lived as an exile in North America where he continued to fight for personal expression and produced a stirring body of work.

This film is a tribute to the liberating power of art and one man’s undying passion for life. Before Night Falls won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Coppa Volpi for Best Actor for Javier Bardem at the 2000 Venice Film Festival. That same year, Bardem was the first Spanish actor ever to be nominated for an Academy Award for his brilliant portrayal of Reinaldo Arenas.

The screening will be followed by a short conversation between Schnabel and Laurie Anderson, who, together with Lou Reed, co-wrote/co-composed one of the songs for the film.

Willner, Webb and a band of New York's finest (with Lee Ranaldo, Doug Wieselman and special guests) slap back and forth with selected works on Reed and Ackers' favorite subjects including sex, love, rage, death and phosphorescent humanity.

Vito Acconci’s design & architecture comes from another direction, from backgrounds of writing & art. His poems in the late 60’s treated language as matter (words to look at rather than through) & the page as a field to travel over; his performances in the early 70’s helped shift art from object to interaction; later in the 70’s, his installations turned museums & galleries into interactions between spaces & people; in the early 80’s, his architectural-units were meant to be transformed by users. By the late 80’s his work crossed over & he formed Acconci Studio, a design firm that mixes poetry & geometry, computer-scripting & sentence-structure, narrative & biology, chemistry & social-science.

For the first time in American history, 90% of wounded service members survive their injuries. A greater percentage of men and women are now coming home with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and severe Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). A new approach to mental health needs to be adopted in the military to adequately address these unique needs. The shift to move services from reactive to proactive and mandate education on alternative techniques such as mindfulness is desperately needed. In this panel, Morrison, Mauricio and Romero will discuss where we are, where we were and where we need to be.

A Chinese internal martial art system that dates back approximately 400 years, Taijiquan was founded by a former Ming general, Chen Wang-Ting. As exercise, Taijiquan promotes health and relaxation through a series of continuous, flowing movements while providing powerful tools for self-defense. Chen Style Taijiquan is noted for its fluid, coiling movements, punctuated with quick bursts of energy. It is the original style of Taijiquan, from which all the other styles (like Yang and Wu) ultimately derive.

Lou Reed’s DRONES is a three-hour-long visceral, emotional and spiritual installation during which audience members may come and go as they please. Featuring Reed’s guitars and amps in feedback mode, twenty-four strings create an amalgamation of three hundred and sixty partial harmonics colliding, cascading and uniting in sound. Introducing gain and sculpting sonic frequencies, a feedback loop is created with each guitar and its respective amplifier. 

The Velvet Underground embraced suspended notes sustained against musical changes. Both Lou Reed and John Cale were influenced by the work of La Monte Young, and in 1975, Lou Reed would play out the drone music that had been an early influence. Metal Machine Music album laid the foundation for ambient and industrial music. This album inspired numerous musicians and bands. The DRONES will be introduced and operated by Lou's long-serving former guitar tech, Stewart Hurwood.

Curator Laurie Anderson and Live Arts’ Artistic Director Bill T. Jones discuss Live Ideas 2015’s overarching theme: force and change in America today. The sky, “a multidimensional symbol of aspiration, vastness, change, threat and now information storage” (Jones) is a jumping-off point for this opening conversation. It will question the direction and ethics of a country that has “traditionally valued freedom, social justice and a special kind of exuberant confidence” but that is currently faced with “a society that is deeply divided, unjust and often toxic” (Anderson).

Pauline Oliveros and IONE have worked collaboratively since 1985. They have created four large operas and frequently perform improvisation that features spoken word and sonic vocals (by IONE) with harmonica, accordion and electronic music (by Oliveros). For Live Ideas, they will perform two works—one premiere and one older work—using Oliveros’ new V Accordion and Expanded Instrument System to produce truly unique, of-the-moment sound art.

The second half of the evening’s performance features Cage’s 1976 Lecture on the Weather. Combining music, text, projected images, lighting and a weather soundscape, the work is a softly political piece containing Cage’s concerns (social, political and environmental in nature) regarding the direction the country was then taking. Equally as relevant today as the year it was written, the installation features excerpts from Henry David Thoreau’s writings—Walden: Life in the Woods and On Civil Disobedience—selected by means of I Ching chance operations. Commissioned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in observance of the bicentennial of the United States of America in 1976, it was to be performed, according to Cage, by 12 men, “preferably American men who have become Canadian citizens.”

Featuring Thomas Bartlett, Justin Bond , Anne Carson, Bob Currie, Nitasha Dhillon, Amin Husain, Bill T. Jones, Eyvind Kang, Yates McKee, Pauline Oliveros, Beth Povinelli and Doug Wieselman.

Of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, The New York Times recently said that “No other living composer has so fervent a following or such a diverse group of fans.” Live Ideas’ second day—titled Arvo Pärt: Journeys in Silence—will explore Pärt’s body of work, including austere compositions known to stir immense passions. The day will conclude with a performance of his rarely heard chamber works, expressive of a wide range of his periods and tonalities, yet all unmistakably Pärt. The program will include works such as: Solfeggio (1963), Da Pacem (2004), as well as several mainstays of cinematic soundtracks: Fratres (1977), Spiegel im Spiegel (1978) and Für Alina (1976).

The Election of Barack Obama is just the most startling manifestation of a larger trend: the gradual erosion of “whiteness” as the touchstone of what it means to be American. If the end of white America is a cultural and demographic inevitability, what will the new mainstream look like—and how will white Americans fit into it? What will it mean to be white when whiteness is no longer the norm? And will a post-white America be less racially divided—or more so?- Hua Hsu, The Atlantic

Can art practice heal wounds of systemic racial injustice and disinvestment? Beyond representation, do our current social systems change as a result of post-whiteness? Does it actually mean a more equitable distribution of power? How does the ideology of whiteness persist in our culture even as it demographics change?

A duet replete with “silky fluidity: movement that emanates from deep under the skin, where joints are loose, and the spine is airy” (The New York Times), Blue Room is a collaboration between Chinese artist Dai Jian and Russian-born Elena Demyanenko, recent alumni of Trisha Brown Dance Company. The performance features individual and paired works that explore relationship and unfold as a dialogue through myriad possible intricate and detailed existences. Two independent mindbodies with different backgrounds, behaviors, languages and cultures are sutured together. 

Live Arts’ Digital Dance Festival (DDF) began in 2014 as a continued way to challenge how audiences view and interpret live performance. Pulling from their archive of past seasons, the DDF presents screenings of performances that provoke and intrigue the ever-growing dance public. Past participants have included Steven Reker/People Get Ready, Donna Uchizono Company, Jen Rosenblit and Live Arts’ resident dance company, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Performances are viewed online and tickets are pay what you wish.

In A Quarreling Pair, Jones explores the dualities present between any two people, including the struggle to co-habitate and live together against all odds. The work was inspired in part by Jane Bowles’ play of the same name: an absurdist meditation written for two puppets that explores the relationship of two middle-aged sisters who sit in separate rooms and quarrel endlessly about trivial tasks, the futility of life and their inextricable bond. The New York Times described it as a “richly textured and layered theatrical adventure."

Live Arts’ Digital Dance Festival (DDF) began in 2014 as a continued way to challenge how audiences view and interpret live performance. Pulling from their archive of past seasons, the DDF presents screenings of performances that provoke and intrigue the ever-growing dance public. Past participants have included Steven Reker/People Get Ready, Donna Uchizono Company, Jen Rosenblit and Live Arts’ resident dance company, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Performances are viewed online and tickets are pay what you wish.

Former New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks artist (2011), Acosta’s i shot denzel is the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” This multidisciplinary work explores black masculinity within the context of contemporary or "classical" movement.

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company’s Analogy: A Trilogy (work-in-progress, premieres June 2015) is the Company’s newest creation. Bill T. Jones, Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong and his company are developing three new evening length works. This trilogy brings into light the different types of war we fight, and in particular, the war within ourselves. Analogy: A Trilogy searches for the connection between three varying stories, focusing on memory and the effect of powerful events on the actions of individuals and, more importantly, on their often unexpressed inner life. Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling and movement pull and push against each other and how another experience can be had through the combination and recombination of these elements. Part One: Dora Tramontane will premiere at Montclair State University in June 2015.

RoseAnne Spradlin’s “extravagantly enigmatic” g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) (excerpt, 2014) is a highly physical work that “push[es] her dancers and her audience into some higher state” (The New York Times). Led by dancers Natalie Green and Rebecca Warner with devynn emory, Athena Malloy, Saúl Ulerio and with Asli Bulbul, the work features design elements by Glen Fogel, who previously collaborated with Spradlin on the 2006 Survive Cycle. Evolved from within the creative process, Jeffrey Young’s original musical score for instruments and electronics was developed through improvisation during rehearsals with the dancers, and includes samples of the dancers’ voices.

Cynthia Oliver’s BOOM! (excerpt, 2014), is a “shattering [and] universal” (The New Yorker) duet that features Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet as individuals, friends, strangers, family and younger/older versions of themselves, negotiating relations that are persistently in flux. Building upon a non-linear sequence of narratives around a life and a relationship—of a woman to herself, her history, her present and her future—BOOM! is a choreography of shifting realities. It is a looping, fractured unfolding, examining notions of destiny, when life happens and when “fairness” and cause and effect do not necessarily align.

John Jasperse’s Within between (2014) closed New York Live Arts’ 2013-14 season to critical acclaim that described it as a “delightfully dizzying piece” with “skeins of carefree, virtuosic dancing” (The New York Times). The work, which returns to Live Arts remounted in full for a one-night-only performance during Live Artery, received two 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards, for Outstanding Production and Outstanding Performer (Stuart Singer). Jasperse, a 2014 Doris Duke Artist Award recipient, is a choreographer often referred to with adjectives that include brainy, formal and austere. In Within between, Jasperse sought to simultaneously embrace and resist the habits of his own history, creating a catalytic mating of sensibilities that traverses what are often seen as aesthetic boundaries between mutually distinct terrains within the broader cultural landscape. Within between features dancers Maggie Cloud, Simon Courchel, Burr Johnson and Stuart Singer; lighting design by Lenore Doxsee; an original, commissioned score by composer Jonathan Bepler; and dramaturgical assistance by Ariel Osterweis.

Okwui Okpokwasili’s multi-disciplinary performance piece Poor People's TV Room considers the collective amnesia around women's resistance movements in Nigeria, from the Igbo Women’s War of 1929 to the recent Boko Haram kidnappings and the "save our girls" campaigns. With collaborator Peter Born, she creates a dystopian narrative where characters slip through the fissures of time, wandering in a bush of ghosts.

Poor People’s TV Room is produced by MAPP International Productions. It is commissioned by New York Live Arts. It is also supported by developmental residencies at The Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL; Brooklyn Creative Arts LAB (BRIC) in New York; The Rauschenberg Residency (Robert Rauschenberg Foundation) on Captiva Island, FL. It is also part of LMCC’s Extended Life Dance Development program. An early work-in-progress iteration of Poor People’s TV Room was presented by Lincoln Center in the David Rubinstein Atrium in June 2014.

New Work for the Desert (2014) is choreographer Beth Gill’s “beautiful” (ArtsJournal) follow up to her New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" Award winning work Electric Midwife. The impressionistic evening length sextet is a distillation of duration and hue, abstracted within the quietude of memory. Inspired by the natural landscape of the American Southwest, recollections of Trisha Brown’s Newark and the color and light explorations of artist James Turrell, Gill creates an original aesthetic world of perceptive experience with collaborators Thomas Dunn (visual design) and Jon Moniaci ("Bessie" Award winner for Sound Design, Electric Midwife). Time, color, sound and tension shift imperceptibly or dramatically, sifted through saturated optic fields reminiscent of the desert’s striking transformations, as each dancer struggles with the rigidity of the body and its forms. Remounted in full for a one-night-only performance during Live Artery, the work “alters your sense of time…But the greatest wonders emerge from Ms. Gill’s choreography and her six dancers” (The New York Times).

Light Years (working title) (excerpt, premieres April 2015) is the “supremely talented” (The New York Times) Rashaun Mitchell’s newest work. Performed by Hiroki Ichinose, Cori Kresge, Silas Riener and Melissa Toogood, the work features sound by Michael Beharie and Corwin Lamm, lighting design by Davison Scandrett and costumes by Mitchell and Riener. Before my eyes are memories of evolution, consciousness, magic. Seen from great speeds. From outer space, out of past-present-future. We are lost in the in-between time. What is origin? We pass through. Inexplicable illusions. Other people. We do not know what is real. We emerge. Portals open. The suns converge, a shifting landscape. The drums can still be heard. The body holds so many generations, so many genetic mutations, and the world is too much with us. We travel so far, so long. We walk off the face of the earth. The body must become space, claim everything, continue to (r)evolve. We must give. How far reaching is the self to make the bridge? To make and unmake.

Join us as CO/LAB explores time travel! This fall our actors explored the fundamentals of acting and musical theater through time periods. We took inspiration from specific time periods like the Roaring Twenties, The Renaissance, and then let our imaginations soar!  As a class, we created scenes and learned music, giving each participant the opportunity to take on the role of  actor, writer and director. We are excited to share these amazing, original pieces - Hello, Today and Blast to the Past - with CO/LAB with family, friends and community members.

Dances by Very Young Choreographers is a mélange of witty and intriguing original dances created and performed by students of Ellen Robbins, ages 8-18. The dances can be humorous, dramatic, lyrical or abstract, but always surprising.

Geared towards strong pre-professional and professional dancers, this technique class will be based on the style and movement sensibility developed by Bill T. Jones and Janet Wong.  We will cultivate precision, range, and the ability to cover space in movement, integrating and borrowing values from modern, postmodern, and classical traditions. We’ll also focus on remaining a thinking, feeling human being that makes choices with genuine consequences throughout the process of moving. Full bodied and challenging physicality will be the point of departure for our time together.  This class will be taught by LaMichael Leonard and will include live accompaniment.

What is the nature of an experimental action? It is simply an action the outcome of which is unforeseen.
-John Cage, Silence 

Bill T. Jones has always been on the forefront of powerful hybrid art forms...In Story/Time, he spins John Cage. A master of timing, Jones applies Cage's rigor to his own work, adding his own style and warmth. Story/Time's choreographed language is a beautiful new realm.
-Laurie Anderson

What is the the lifespan of an idea? For Bill T. Jones, the answer is not finite. It is continual and filled with indeterminacy. It opens new, even more challenging, arenas of conceptual inquiry. With Story/Time:The Life of An Idea, Bill T. Jones communes with the creative legacy of John Cage, while also discovering previously unanswered questions about his own growth as one of the most influential and provocative dance artists of our time.  Join Jones and Jedediah Wheeler, Arts and Cultural Programming Executive Director, Montclair State University, for an intimate conversation where they discuss Jones' new book and examine the complexities of Cage's work and influence on modern culture.

For her Studio Series showing, Moriah Evans will present an early incarnation of Social Dance 9-12: Engine (working title), a choreographic system in search of dance. Evans unfolds one possible core of the choreographic, where mind, muscles and affects are at work together towards the transmission of sentiment. In an open process for performers and audience, movements of memory, repetition and simulation get filled with life and exchange. Here, the choreographic is a process which is social in origin but biological and physical in effect. 

In-process talk moderated by Yve Laris Cohen.

Support for the Studio Series is provided, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane  is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 30 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20, D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters radiates the clarity of love.”

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet. As The New York Times states, “.it offers a clearer look at the tension between loose swing and angular articulation in Mr. Jones’s movement. It shows his skill in establishing a foreground and a background while letting them blend.”

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces 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, ContinuousReplay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time.

Body Against Body (2011) returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched the career of 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 an iconoclastic artistic sensibility. As New York Magazine says, “The combination of brisk formality and a deeply sensual attack.was riveting decades ago and it’s riveting today.” Commissioned by the ICA/Boston.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20, D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters radiates the clarity of love.”

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet. As The New York Times states, “.it offers a clearer look at the tension between loose swing and angular articulation in Mr. Jones’s movement. It shows his skill in establishing a foreground and a background while letting them blend.”

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces 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, ContinuousReplay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

Story/Time (2012) is inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy (1958), a work in which Cage sat alone on stage reading an unbroken stream of one-minute stories to a small audience. In Story/Time, Bill T. Jones reads his own one-minute stories amidst a spellbinding landscape of dance and original music composed and mixed live by collaborator Ted Coffey. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach and governed by chance procedures, this “wondrously original” (Dance Magazine) and “radically engaging” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune) work is an ever-changing score that yields a unique performance each night. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “…a dance theater rollercoaster with surprises around every corner.” Co-commissioned by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

For Studio Series, Poerstel will present an in progress showing of her latest work. Attracted to blank spaces and interested in building dances with a force and power that frightens, Poerstel’s work looks to the matriarch, a figure who evolves and breeds with innate animal intelligence. Taking influence from her background in somatic practices, her technically precise work challenges performers with polyrhythmic choreography set within strict structures. Drawn to exposing the finite point of transformation, Poerstel’s work presents the female body distilled to its essential, animalistic self.

Known for delivering “boundary-stretching…haute-performance theory with a house party vibe” (The New York Times) Ani Taj and The Dance Cartel focus on ways they can break the societal expectation of a “dance performance” and bring movement to a broad and diverse audience. For Studio Series, they will present an in-progress showing of their newest project, Wet Clutch. Inspired by Hollywood cinema’s female heroes from the past 50 years, Wet Clutch explores portable material that can be used in outdoor spaces. The Cartel’s showing at Live Arts marks the first step in the process of what will ultimately become an explosive public dance experience.

In-process talks moderated by Paul Langland.

Currently in the early stages of development and creative process, the work takes inspiration from Forté-Saunders’ father, an animated being of great contradiction, whim and majesty. What else meditates on bottomless and intangible love, sprouting from that of father and daughter into the many facets of relationship and union. Forté-Saunders' exploration is driven by the politics of her father's being and likeness, toiling with its weight, and lamenting it's tragic timeliness.

FJK Dance presents the worldwide premier of Arabesque and Tango Unframed.

Arabesque:

A piece based on contemporary ballet and tied with sensual Middle Eastern origins of movement that, together, create the concept of a mirage in the open desert and the mystic presence of man. A testimony to the powerful union between human movement and music.

Music by Mercan Dede, Said Murad and Samer Ali.

Tango Unframed:

Passionate, dramatic and seamless, Tango Unframed takes partnering to an extreme stage. The Argentinian tango is performed with classical ballet vocabulary and modern movement––creating a unique story of dance where the tango frame represents a prison when done in solitude and ultimate freedom when performed in duets.

Original music composed and arranged for FJK Dance by Ronald Jackson and Emilio Solla and recordings from Rosa Antonelli. Inspired by authentic classical tango tunes.

FJK Dance's presentation of Arabesque and Tango Unframed at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts’ Theater Access Program. The Theater Access Program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations.

Welcome to BalletNext where invention trumps convention. Three radically different world premieres--all set to Baroque music, or a riff on it, and all played live--are on the boards for Baroque’d, BalletNext's season at New York Live Arts. Packed with choreographic adventures including the BalletNext debuts of international choreographer Peter Quanz and Brooklyn flex dancer Jay Donn, the season heralds Michele Wiles's first foray into choreography. The music is by 18th century composers Corelli and Biber, with a 21st century world premiere by electro-acoustic cellist/composer Chris Lancaster.

Artists also participate in dialogue sessions facilitating open discussion about their creative process and one-on-one consultations with the Fresh Tracks Artistic Advisor.

Jan 29 at 6pm: Come Early Toast & Mixer: Celebrating 50 Years of Emerging Artists

Same As Sister/Briana Brown-Tipley and Hilary Brown (S.A.S.)'s Women Times Three, a collaboration with composer Beau Mullis and video artist Kit Tipley, splices together a collection of vivid imagery that delves into human nature’s reliance on the inseparable bond between terror and horror to assert dominance over our own and others’ psyches.

Nico Brown’s Nation propels his evolving relationship to formalism into a place of repurposed virtuosity, rigor and unstated emotion, in which durations of stillness, repetitive sequencing and evolving relationships to linearity and verticality result in a fiercely sentimental journey through surfacing images and exhaustive physicality.

He Jin Jang’s migrant-self the speed of a door, explores the perceptible and imperceptible timing within Jang’s choreographic process, and examines the impact that Jang’s travels between her birthplace of Seoul, Korea and other geographies has had on making time hybrid, fictional and acclimated.

Niall Jones’ a pleasure, 2014 edition, is a dance work that engages the affective materiality of labor and desire on the body. The body (object and phantom) bespeaks a site where the erotics of presence collect at the edge of choreographic architectures.

Julie Mayo’s Buoys for Escapees reveals the collision of internal experience with external environment, in which Mayo engages in overlapping movement, deconstructed language and an absurdist sense of humor towards an exploration of the ontological nature of performance, meta-consciousness, and the slipperiness of meaning making.

Good Evening, Strangers, a duet by Lindsay Reuter activates feeling, sequence, and support performed by siblings Dan and Lindsay Reuter.

Support for Fresh Tracks is provided, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Presented by New York Live Arts as part of The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival.

Called a “critical darling of the New York scene” (New York Magazine), Taylor Mac makes his New York Live Arts debut with the celebrated A 24-Decade History of Popular Music, presented in association with the Under the Radar Festival. Featuring the years 1900 – 1950 at Live Arts (the 1950s commissioned specially for the Live Arts stage), Mac will emerge as a bedazzled creature, accompanied by a live band, dancing beauties and special guests, to present a performative ritual using popular music from the first half of the 20th Century. Eventually, this work will comprise of a 24-hour spectacle dissecting the last 240 years of popular music in America. As The New York Times writes of Mac, “Fabulousness can come in many forms, and Taylor Mac seems intent on assuming every one of them.” Adding Live Arts to a venue roster including The Public Theater, Lincoln Center, The Sydney Opera House and more, Mac’s celebration of music, performance and all things fabulous will surely be a highlight of our 2014-2015 season. In conjunction with the performances, Mac’s collaborator and designer Machine Dazzle will transform the Live Arts lobby, giving further context to the work with commissioned décor.

This, a new work by Neil Greenberg (dance), Steve Roden (sound), Joe Levasseur (lighting) and James Kidd Studio (costumes), will continue Greenberg’s ongoing investigation of meaning-making, exploring the specificity of performance and the seemingly inescapable human desire to make meaning. Five dancers (Greenberg along with Molly Lieber, Mina Nishimura, Omagbitse Omagbemi and Connor Voss) will engage with complex and idiosyncratic movement—culled from videotaped improvisations and learned verbatim—that, along with lighting and musical materials, will be continually recast, reconfigured and recoded. A related focus will be placed on Greenberg, Roden and Levasseur’s new working relationships, looking at the materials onstage as performing (rather than representing) these relationships. This unfolds not as finite content, but rather suggests other kinds of meaningfulness and arenas in which that meaning might be found.

Bill T. Jones has written 170 plus stories and collected others. Before every sequence, the stories, lights, sound and choreography are randomly selected through chance procedure.

Nov 4 – 6 at 7:30pm Story/Time #35 features Jones and the Company 

Nov 7 & 8 at 7:30pm Story/Time #36 Kathleen Chalfant – Amble or Career brings the Tony-Award winning Chalfant on stage together with Bill T. Jones in the intimate setting of the Live Arts Theater. Amble or Career will feature an array of personal stories from both performers.

Nov 11 & 12 at 7:30pm Story/Time #37 Lois Welk – A History features Lois Welk, who founded the American Dance Asylum Inc. (ADA) in 1972 and co-directed it with Jones and Arnie Zane, co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, from 1973–1979. Welk joins the Company on stage to share personal stories of her own that center on memories from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Welk’s stories provide a special window into the history of Jones’ and Zane’s early years in Binghamton, NY.

Nov 13 & 14 at 7:30pm Story/Time #38 features Jones and the Company 

Nov 15 at 7:30pm Story/Time #39 Theaster Gates – Workin’ and Wailing is a one night only performance with the Chicago-based conceptual artist known for his practice of socially-minded space development, object management, performance and critical engagement. Gates will be accompanied by three members of The Black Monks of Mississippi, an experimental musical ensemble comprised of Gates’ close collaborators who temporarily follow semi-strict adherence to the blues form, one that Gates believes to be the most important root in American music. Following the common thread of chance-procedures, story-telling, and a firm focus on time, Gates and the Monks will join Jones and the Company in an energetic evening of live music, art, stories and dance.

Called “a work delivered with supreme elegance” (The New York Times) joining “the emotional and visceral experience of intimacy with a choreographic language of pure physicality” (Artforum), Jennifer Monson’s Live Dancing Archive is an evening-length performance featuring a visceral exploration of the dancing body as a physical archive of experience and place. Drawing from more than a decade of dance-based environmental research, Live Dancing Archive was choreographed using material from video documentation of The BIRD BRAIN Osprey Migration (2002)—an 8-week dance project along the Atlantic Flyway—as well as improvised scores accumulated over the past decade.

Originally premiered at The Kitchen in 2012 as a solo, this newly remounted iteration will reference unseen documentation from the video archive (different from the footage used in the original work) and features performers Niall Jones and Tatyana Tenenbaum along with Monson and composer Jeff Kolar, lighting designer Joe Levasseur and artist Valerie Oliveiro, with costumes designed by Susan Becker. The project is accompanied by two additional components —a video installation and a digital archive—that query the process of archiving as well as the shifting nature of dance, and environmental phenomena.

Making her New York Live Arts debut, Gisèle Vienne, in collaboration with Dennis Cooper and KTL - Stephen O'Malley & Peter Rehberg, takes audience members on an emotionally stirring journey that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. A true hybrid dance-theater work set in the visually arresting scenic landscape of a snowy winter night, Kindertotenlieder takes inspiration from the “uncanny” as presented by Sigmund Freud. The work examines the representation of horrifying dread as something both familiar and alien, triggering a cathartic, ceremonial experience.

Co-presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line Festival 2014

Returning to the Live Arts theater for the first time since her Dance Theater Workshop performances in 2006, Ivana Müller presents two thought-provoking works, Partituur and We Are Still Watching.

A work in which the idea of “spectacle” slowly shifts to where we least expect it, We Are Still Watching assumes the form of a theatrical “read through,” in which each audience member, given a script, assumes his or her own individual role in the play. Reflecting on the idea of theater and its place in contemporary society, the work was partly inspired by cultural policy and contemporary democracies. Navigating the text collectively, the audience members form a temporary mini-society in which all spectators are the only participants. By reading the script aloud together each performance unfolds as a completely unique experience, where the audience creates and performs as a community. 

Wed, Oct 1 Stay Late Discussion: Social Theater: When Spectators Become Participants, Simon Dove, co-curator of Crossing the Line, in conversation with Ivana Müller.

Crossing the Line is the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s annual fall festival presenting interdisciplinary works and performances created by artists from around the world in New York. The festival provides opportunities for New Yorkers to explore the dialogue between artist and participant, examine how artists help re-imagine the world, and engage in the vital role artists play as critical thinkers and catalysts for social evolution. Crossing the Line is initiated and produced by FIAF in partnership with leading cultural institutions and takes place this year from September 8–October 18, 2014.

Presentations of Partituur and We Are Still Watching are supported, in part, by FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance, a program of the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, and FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W.

Co-presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line Festival 2014

Returning to the Live Arts theater for the first time since her Dance Theater Workshop performances in 2006, Ivana Müller presents two thought-provoking works, Partituur and We Are Still Watching.

Müller’s only project made for children to date, Partituur presents a performative, systematic game for participants from the ages of seven and up. A social choreography breaking the classical terms of “spectator” and “performer,” the work includes participation by all. In Partituur, the roles of the participants are constantly shifting, and everyone takes part in the creation of an individual score unique to each performance. Using headphones and a list of instructions as tools, each “partituurist” assumes decisions, reactions and positions that inform the overall shape the specific performance takes. Commissioned in 2011 by the Tweetakt Festival in Utrecht, Partituur is a rare conceptual piece of choreography, essentially intended for children yet creating a playful environment lending itself towards reflection. 

*This performance is designed for children over the age of 7. There is a very limited number of Adult tickets available for those accompanying a child. Guardians are encouraged to let their child attend and participate alone. Guardians without tickets will not be admitted to the performance space. Adults with tickets must participate.

Sat, Oct 4 at 11am and Sun, Oct 5 at 3pm performances will be photographed for promotional purposes. 

Presentations of Partituur and We Are Still Watching are supported, in part, by FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance, a program of the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, and FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W.

BOOM!, a new duet by Cynthia Oliver, features Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet as individuals, friends, strangers, family and younger/older versions of themselves, negotiating relations that are persistently in flux. Building upon a non-linear sequence of narratives around a life and a relationship—of a woman to herself, her history, her present and her future—BOOM! is a choreography of shifting realities. It is a looping, fractured unfolding, examining the notions of destiny, when life happens and when “fairness” and cause and effect do not necessarily align.

Music, Lyrics and Book by Denver Casado & Betina Hershey 

Presented by Broadway Workshop as part of the Children's Musical Theatre Festival  - Skyler is about to turn 12, and she’s planned the biggest celebration of the year. But in the middle of the party, something mysterious happens – all the adults suddenly vanish! Trapped in the backyard, the kids realize they must create a brand new society. However when they elect Skyler’s older brother, Charlie, as their ruler, things really begin to spin out of control. Eventually the kids learn a big lesson in responsibility, while Skyler and Charlie develop a greater respect for one another. This show will be performed by students ages 9-13. Running Time: 60 Minutes.

The Children's Musical Theater Festival's presentation of The most epic birthday party ever at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts' Theater Access Program. The Theater Access program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations.

The Watershed, an evening-length work for nine dancers, is a commanding and provocative cross-cultural exploration of freedom. Featuring Abraham’s signature style of mellifluous fluidity juxtaposed with sharp accents, The Watershed follows the universal aspiration toward freedom and simultaneously references the emancipation following the Civil War, the political tumult of 1960s and the civil rights challenges of our present day. The work features arresting scenic design by world-renowned visual artist Glenn Ligon and a score ranging from a contemporary cello suite to the soulful sounds of Otis Redding.

“Memory, often strikes me as a kind of dumbness. It makes one’s head heavy and giddy, as if one were not looking back down the receding perspectives of time but rather down on the earth from a great height, from one of those towers whose tops are lost to view in the clouds.” –W.G.Sebald

tra-mon-tane adjective \trÉ™-ˈmän-ËŒtān, ËŒtra-mÉ™n-ˈ\ 1. traveling to, situated on, or living on the other side of a mountain; latin transmontanus “beyond the mountains”

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 25 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive. 

This piece is part of Analogy: A Trilogy developed by Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director, Janet Wong. Insipired by W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants, Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling and movement pull and push against each other and how another experience can be had through the combination and recombination of these elements. All three stories, while wildly different ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well lived.

Composer Nick Hallett is creating original music informed by the text as well as a soundscape that combines German Romantic Lieder, songs from both world wars, the 50s and 60s classic pop music and the club music from the 80s and 90s. Hallett, pianist Emily Manzo and the ensemble will perform the music live.

Bessie Lab provides choreographers with the opportunity to hone their craft in an intensive, process-based experience led by a well-established choreographer. This year's Bessie Lab will be led by John Jasperse. The 5-day intensive will endeavor participants to further explore their individual processes of making work by stepping back to examine fundamental components of form and how they function within their individual work. Critical analysis is key to ascertaining when a choreographic process is useful and when it has become a habit that impedes our growth as an artist. Since we are artist practitioners rather than theorists, we will privilege doing over speaking about doing, but we will engage in both in an effort to open up further space for possibility in our practices.

Just You (1993)
(originally titled It Takes Two) was first created by Bill T. Jones in 1989 for the duet company
 of Steven Koester and Terry Creach, who were craving something informed by these pivotal duets between Jones and Zane. The work was revived in 1993 for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, where the name changed to Just You. Here the original idiosyncratic, formalist concerns were placed at the service of a more theatrical, poetic purpose, made all the more poignant by its being danced to the delicious interpretation of standards by Ray Charles and Betty Carter.
 
Shared Distance (1982) was created concurrently with the trilogy of defining duets made and performed by Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane: Monkey Run Road, Blauvelt Mountain and Valley Cottage. Originally made for Bill T. Jones and Julie West, this duet plays on the masculine and feminine and the reversal of these gender-specific roles.

Bill T. Jones and his company are creating an evening-length work, Analogy (working title). Jones is using the character Ambros Adelwarth from W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants and an oral history Jones conducted with Dora Amelan, 95 year-old French survivor of WWII. Dora Amelan's story and Sebald's Ambros Adelwarth (a quasi fictional creation) will serve as two parallel streams of investigation in search of equivalences. The equivalences Jones is in search of are notions of personal identity, duty, love, belief and the instinct for survival. Analogy (working title) strives to create a multi-dimensional experience in which the dancers suggest the process of memory, “the then and now,” “the us and them,” through their bodies and voices.

Recognized by The New York Times as creating one of Alastair Macaulay's TOP TEN DANCE FAVORITES OF 2013, ZviDance will present its newest work, Surveillance, for five performances only at New York Live Arts June 11-14, 2014. Experience the groundbreaking collaboration of contemporary dance, interactive video design and animation as ZviDance explores how we respond to the omnipresence of this technology in our daily lives. Video projections and animations designed by Hertog Nadler will be live-streamed throughout the evening - blurring the lines between voyeur and exhibitionist. Composer Scott Killian, in collaboration with chanteuse Alison Clancy and hip-hop artist Wilkis Ideology Figuereo, will create an aural landscape that explores and exploits sounds and music that are both familiar to us - and yet, oftentimes unheard. Ultimately, Surveillance is a multi-disciplinary piece which reflects on the ever-increasing use of surveillance technology in our contemporary lives.

ZviDance is honored to host a special evening of dance and culture on June 12 kindly supported by Israel's Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in NY; and in partnership with our friends at the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and Isramerica. Tickets include premium seats to ZviDance's SURVEILLANCE, followed by a post-performance reception in the New York Live Arts lobby. (Tix $45.00).
* Guests interested in attending event must purchase the $45.00 tix in order to be admitted to the post-performance reception.

Monte/Buglisi/Muller LIVE! offers the opportunity to experience three acclaimed dance companies together on one stage, in four shared programs featuring five pieces: three world premieres; 35 dancers; and four noted designers.

These three experienced and distinguished choreographers create work with powerful and highly original voices. Now at the height of their creative careers, they are presenting a diverse selection of work, including recent premieres and brand-new pieces. As choreographers, they are distinctly different but share the sensibility of creating work that combines virtuosic movement with an expressive edge that touches the heart – work that dances full out yet speaks of both individual experiences and shared humanity.

Butterflies and Demons (Buglisi) grew out of Buglisi’s ardent concern for social justice and a collaboration with the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women and FBI agent Julian Sher’s story “Somebody’s Daughter.”

Lonely Planet (Monte) explores the growing isolation that proliferates in contemporary society, which seems to grow, not diminish, despite global inter-connectivity through technology and the ever-expanding communications options available.

Miserere Nobis (Muller/World Premiere), set to the music of the Allegeri: MiserereAgnus Dei Qui Tollis Peccata Mundi, is an entreaty for mercy and grace. In an age of unspeakable conflict and cruelty, each of us asks forgiveness for all of us.

Untitled (Buglisi/World Premiere) The young composer Justin Dello Joio approached Buglisi with a proposal to explore a composition by Joio as well as one by his father (Norman Dello Joio), who composed music for Martha Graham’s Seraphic Dialogue and Diversion of Angels.

Whew! (Muller/World Premiere) looks at the value and vagaries of industrious effort. With upbeat humor, unexpected shifting moods and awkward relationships, the piece comments on the disassociated lifestyle that stems from the non-stop activity of 70 hour work weeks.

Culminating a year’s work with world-renowned dance educator Ellen Robbins, each student creates her/his own solo, steeped in the unmistakable individualism that resides in every child. Their works span a variety of theater experiences, including those that are humorous, dramatic, lyrical, minimal and abstract. Music selections range from Hayden to Bartok, Cage, T. Monk and Ratatat.

Each of the five unique concerts include one or two of the following group pieces: Garden Party, Space Fantasy, Towel Dance, Piecework, Secret Service, Carnival of the Animals and Unzipped, as well as two new works created by the older students.

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

The Suitcase Fund hosts Isack Peter Abeneko and Nshoma Nkwabi, two emerging choreographers from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for a week-long research residency in NYC from April 12-21, 2014. Please join us for an informal showing in the New York Live Arts studio on Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30pm. A short discussion with the artists will follow the showing.

Isack Peter Abeneko performs 3 Macho, a solo work that provokes and discusses political and religious confusion around Christian, Muslim and various African religions to reflect on our past, present and future. “Religion is a particular system of faith, belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, specially a personal God or Gods.” Where does the religious confusion come from? Where do the different tribes/people in certain communities come from? Do you remember The Past, your past, our past, his/her past? The Past to the Present truly tells everything that is going to or will be happening in the Future. Look at your Family, Friends, Community positively - tell them who you are, how you like or love things to be, talk and solve your issues. 3 Macho also means three eyes in Swahili. Use your third eye to speak, report, observe and change. Nshoma Nkwabi performs a solo entitled CHANGAMOTO. The title is from the Swahili word for "Challenge".

Story/Time (2012) is inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy (1958)a work in which Cage sat alone on stage reading an unbroken stream of one-minute stories to a small audience. In Story/Time, Bill T. Jones reads his own one-minute stories amidst a spellbinding landscape of dance and original music composed and mixed live by collaborator Ted Coffey. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach and governed by chance procedures, this “wondrously original” (Dance Magazine) and “radically engaging” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune) work is an ever-changing score that yields a unique performance each night. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “…a dance theater rollercoaster with surprises around every corner.”

Story/Time was co-commissioned by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters Radiates the clarity of love.”

 

/Story (2013) is a continuation of the Company’s investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interrogated by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft an energetic conversation between the music and movement. Called a “strong” work with “compellingly enigmatic duets…’Story/’ is alive with glimpses of ordinary life” (The New York Times).

The Suitcase Fund’s winter/spring events continue in April, with a Research Presentation by Marijana Cvetković Marković from Serbia and Miki Braniste from Romania on Tuesday, April 15 at 6:00pm. Visiting from STATION Service for Contemporary Dance in Serbia and Nomad Dance Academy, a network of Balkan arts professionals, Cvetković Marković will conduct a two-week research residency in NYC from April 5 - 20. Her research has the goal to improve knowledge, develop information flow between New York, Serbia and the Balkan Region and establish artistic and institutional partnerships for new projects. The information gathered will be instrumental in the development of STATION’s new programs in contemporary dance as well as for the university course taught by Cvetković Marković.

Miki Braniste, director of the TEMPS D'IMAGES Festival Cluj, Romania will be in NYC from April 12 - 26 through the Gabriela Tudor Fellowship, created by the Gabriela Tudor Foundation and hosted in partnership with Allyson Green & New York University/Tisch School for the Arts. Braniste will present the dynamics of the independent performing arts scene in Romania, connecting the development of the artistic scene with the social transformation of contemporary Romania. The fragility of the local democracy is reflected in the issues presented in the performances but also in the production work. So, can the artistic scene develop beyond the political and economic scene? Can an artist be only an artist? Because these questions are appropriate beyond the current context in Romania, her research during this residency will take into account New York political art history and also today's arts movements. Braniste is interested in meeting artists engaged in the social development of their community, to discover not only success stories but also productive failures that can inspire. (The second part of the Gabriela Tudor Fellowship project involves U.S. artist Catherine Galasso going to Bucharest, Romania for two-weeks from June 15 - 29.)

Dance of Precatiat (working title) will focus on the work of Workers Dance Movement in New York City in the 1930’s. The movement was a specific phenomenon in modern dance in the USA. It was formed by working class and immigrant dancers who were attracted to both the modern dance world and radical political activity. The research will examine the work of the Workers Dance League, New Dance Group and other groups and individuals whose focus was on political choreography, human condition, and struggle for social change.

Driven by a distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework, Tanowitz’s dances elegantly layer full-bodied dancing with a clear visual design. The Spectators continues Tanowitz’s investigation of dance steps as objects, and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements.

Story/ (2013), the newest addition to the Company's Play and Play programcontinues the Company's exploration of the concepts used in 2012's Story/Time. Set to Schubert's Death and the Maiden, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interpreted by the music, thus crafting a lively conversation between the quartet and the choreography. The work will be performed to live music.

In his new work Analogy (working title) for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Bill T. Jones is in pursuit of the tantalizing promise of comparisons in lives experienced privately in time and place but are shared across generations and bodies publicly. Utilizing the writing style of W.G. Sebald, the compelling stories of Ambros Adelwarth in Sebald’s The Emigrants and family member Dora Amelan, Franz Schubert lieder, modern folk songs and new music by Ted Coffey, Jones is working to create a prismatic narrative in which the dancers, décor, text and music relate memory and histories both personal and universal, disparate and analogous. This work will premiere at Montclair State University as part of the Peak Performance Series on June 18, 2015.

New York Live Arts will observe the occasion by devoting its second Live Ideas to exploring the continuing pertinence of the achievement and the thinking of the prophetic author of seminal works like Go Tell It on the Mountain (1953), Giovanni’s Room (1956), and The Fire Next Time (1963).

As with our 2013 survey of The Worlds of Oliver Sacks, this edition of the humanities festival will feature lectures, panels, performances and a full range of artistic responses.

Everything looks like something. But apparently you can’t judge a book by its cover. Despite the interplay and disjunction between essence and appearance, all artistic work uses its perceptual surface (what it looks like, sounds like, feels like, …) as a means of transmission. The aesthetics of a work of art speak to the value systems of its author(s), which are in turn formed through the construction of such eternally slippery terms as beauty.


From once between is a new evening-length work by Jasperse in collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler. Jasperse seeks both to embrace and to resist the habits of his own history, to create a cross pollination or catalytic mating of sensibilities, where the work emerges out of the space between what seems to be distinct terrains.

Placed metaphorically in the ruins of a collapsed theater, OTRO TEATRO is achugar’s current search for another kind of theater; a ritual of becoming; an occasion for communion. OTRO TEATRO, a solo created and performed by achugar, is a dark rite of passage from destruction to rebuilding. It is a dance that is meant to be felt as it is seen, giving voice to the arcane spirit and desire of our uncivilized bodies.

Excerpts from You are my heat and glare and a new work-in-progress.

Suggested age for this work is 10 year and older.

“What are we made of but hunger and rage?” is a question provoked by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water” and explored by “Bessie” award-winner Kimberly Bartosik in You are my heat and glare. This evening-length work unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists, including a duet for light and body featuring Bartosik and her longtime collaborator Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the cast.

In i shot denzel, Acosta presents the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” The idea for this new work is to strip the work of other presences and create a physically “challenging” solo on his body exploring blackness
within the context of contemporary or classical movement.
 
Dworman’s New York Live Arts Commission, macromen, zooms in, on a micro scale, to physical states that construct theatricality in the body. Balletic postures are affected by abstract qualities and textures that explore virtuosity on a molecular level.

Excerpts from Energizer, Found Object  and Desert Sea. 

Energizer, a quartet featuring music by Mark Freedman and originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop in 1980, returns to the public eye in its entirety for the first time since 1982. Found Object is a new ensemble work commissioned by New York Live Arts featuring text instructions by John Guare, Joy Harjo and Rudy Wurlitzer; music by Erin Gee. The choreography of Desert Sea uses the meander of Navajo blanket weaving as an influence – the up, across, down, across, always at right angles- to give an impression of movement and the travel of people.

Intertwining elements of musical comedy, autobiography, documentary and fiction, A Living Documentary intersperses live interviews with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, all the while asking myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City.

In New Work for the Desert Beth Gill teams up with performers Danielle Goldman, Jennifer Lafferty, Heather Lang, Marilyn Maywald, Kayvon Pourazar and Stuart Singer and lighting designer Thomas Dunn to build a space in which light is alive, space is vast and the body struggles through form, gesture and contact to express something real and fictitious, old and new, foreign and familiar... all at the same time.

Excerpts from Fire Underground.

Fire Underground, DUC’s newest work that premiered at New York Live Arts in 2013, draws from Uchizono’s harrowing experience of a complex international adoption process. Featuring a cast of five performers, the multi-layered work is designed as a series of “salon” style performances that illuminate the complex crises of our time and the interconnections that bind us as we witness the courage to be human.

Join us as CO/LAB brings art to life on stage! This fall our actors explored the fundamentals of improvisation and acting and over the course of the semester, we devised scenes around a painting, sculpture or photograph.  We took inspiration from existing material and then let our imaginations soar! Through this process, we focused on building characters, environments and dialogue while supporting each scene as an ensemble. Each actor has a chance to take on the role of actor, write and director throughout the devising process, creating a show that is completely their own. We are excited to share this piece, Sunday in the park with CO/LAB with family, friends, and community members.

Noctua, Corvus, Hydra, Filis is a collage made from ink on Nepal paper with mica and methylcellulose glue. The mural features Hydra, the water snake (the largest constellation in the sky), with Corvus, the crow, Noctua, the owl, and Filis, the cat.

Five of the selections will be pieces from a larger work composed by Aaron Irwin which are inspired by the twelve published short stories by Breece D’J Pancake. Breece (Dexter John) Pancake (1952-1979), was an American short story author who was a native of West Virginia. He wrote one published book of short stories that was published posthumously after he shot himself at the age of 26. Pancake’s stories lay out a world located in the hills of West Virginia – “the pockets of neglected farm and mining country where people lose their livelihoods, their friends and lovers, their land and their birthrights, but remain stubbornly hewn in place”. Critical praise for his work has been nearly universal. Critics have found parallels between his work and that of Flannery O'Connor, Sherwood Anderson, John Steinbeck, James Joyce, and Ernest Hemingway.

These selections include:
Trilobites
A Room Forever
The Honored Dead
The Scrapper
Time and Again

Critically acclaimed saxophonist, multi-woodwind player, and composer, Aaron Irwin has emerged as a new and unique voice of his generation. His debut album Into the Light was hailed by the New Yorker magazine as being one of the ten best jazz recordings of 2006 alongside such artists such as Ornette Coleman, Joe Lovano, and Paul Motian. His playing has been described by Jazz Times as “generat[ing] thoughtful dialogs, crunchy little grooves, and moments of great emotive power.”

He can be heard on concert stages, jazz clubs, dive bars, and Broadway pit orchestras. He is on faculty teaching woodwind classes at the British International School in Manhattan, Bank Street School and Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. He also was featured in jazz author Cicily Janus’ new 2010 book The New Face of Jazz (Billboard Books) and has a new CD, Ordinary Lives, coming out this fall on the Fresh Sound/New Talent label. www.AaronIrwin.com

Trombonist Matthew McDonald has performed at numerous jazz festivals and conferences, including the Spoleto Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival, Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, and IAJE. Since moving to New York in 2003, he has performed with many different ensembles including the Max Weinberg Big Band, Smoke Big Band, Birdland Big Band, Fat Cat Big Band, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and Ken Peplowski’s Kingdom of Swing. In 2007, he was invited to perform with his own quartet in Manizales and Medellin, Colombia as one of the “Promising Artists of the 21st Century.” He received his Bachelor of music at DePaul University in Chicago, his Masters of Music from the Manhattan School of Music, as well as receiving his Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School, studying with Wycliffe Gordon. He maintains a busy schedule as a sideman for many of New York’s finest bands and ensembles

Jazz guitarist Pete McCann has been an integral part of the New York City scene for 20 years. He currently leads an exciting new group of New York's finest jazz artists on his latest CD, Extra Mile, on Nineteen-Eight Records. McCann's other releases, Most Folks, You Remind Me of Someone, Parable, have been widely praised by top jazz critics.

McCann is one of the first-call sidemen in New York. He works in several groups including the Patti Austin band, Grace Kelly Quintet, Chris Tarry Quintet, Melissa Stylianou group, Dan Willis Sextet, Aimee Allen Trio, and Alison Wedding's group. Pete has performed with some of the greats in jazz: Kenny Wheeler, Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz, Kenny Garrett, Peter Erskine, Gary Thomas, Greg Osby, Brian Blade, and the Maria Schneider Orchestra. He has appeared on over 60 CDs including: Almost Certainly Dreaming, Chris Tarry group; I Think It's Going To Rain Today, Curtis Stigers; The Other Side of Ellington, The Palmetto All-Stars; Standard Wonder (The Music of Stevie Wonder), Dave Pietro; Round 'Bout Now, George Schuller; andPhase 2, Mahavishnu Project.

Pete's playing encompasses a wide variety of musical styles and genres -- Straight-ahead, Post-Bop, Avant-Garde, Latin, Jazz-Rock Fusion. He has performed throughout the US, Canada and Europe from clubs to jazz festivals, musicals, award shows, and even an opera.

ACB Dance Company is an emerging dance company. This performance was made possible in part by Career Transition for Dancers (CT4D).  ACB Dance Company would like to dedicate this show to CT4D in order to raise awareness about their organization and help dancers in the NYC dance community.

The performance consists of three different acts, featuring six pieces from the company’s repertoire. Performed by ten dancers from the ACB Dance Company and guest artists, each piece is varied from the next and is compelling on its own.

The program for the evening is as follows:

Accused (Variation B) Music: Double Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Orchestra by Philip Glass

Heroic Departure Music: Atlas of Somewhere (On the Way to Howland Island):11.Islanded in a Stream of Stars; Contemporaneous & David Bloom, on Stream of Stars-Music of Dylan Mattingly

“The stars seemed near enough to touch and never before have I seen so many. I always believed the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, but I was sure of it that night.”-Amelia Earheart

Lifeline Music: Adiemus Variations 1-111, Karl Jenkins “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”-Aristotle

Banshee’s Lamentation Music: Lyric Trio, Op. 710:1.Red Darkness; Carson Cooman

Tintinnabuli Music: Tabula Rasa; Arvo Part

“No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” -John Donne, 1624

From the Latin tintinnabulum, a bell, Tintinnabuli is a compositional style created by the Estonian composer Arvo Part.

A piece about rhythm, harmony and destruction, transcendental preparatory exercise no. 6 “while in a vigil through pastoral antiquity, so the forest trembles” represents a return to the history of theater, revisiting its dramaturgical evolution from Greek Drama to Wagner’s operas. For the Studio Series showing, Ulerio will present the work in its early stages of the creative process, opening it up to commentary. A recollection of material and ideals which Ulerio has been exploring over the course of the past two years, the movement vocabulary draws from Dominican Folklore as well as rhythmical clashes and similarities within the Cunningham Technique’s approach to movement.

Sister to a Fiend (working title) will be a new, ritualistic dance for three performers that reveals the secret and magic rites of a closed culture of three potent, feminine and liminal creatures and the psychic landscape they occupy. 

Sister to a Fiend, collides the dance form with “known cultures/almost references.” Oblique inspirations (the “almost references”) include dance scenes from films, including the strange and awkward, sexy dance from Vampyros Lesbos, and the solo at the lonely disco in Claire Denis’s film, Beau Travail; the work of conceptual clothing designer Martin Margiela; and Mary Shelley's FrankensteinSister to a Fiend will be performed by Erin Beneze, Ashley Handel and Rebecca Warner.

Cynthia Hopkins will continue developing her newest work, A Living Documentary, through The Watermill Center’s Residency Program. A comedic, no-nonsense reflection on the trials and tribulations of earning a living as a professional theater artist in the 21st century, A Living Documentary intertwines elements of musical comedy, autobiography, documentary and fiction. Interspersing live interviews with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, the work poses myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City. In residence at WMC November 19 – December 11, Hopkins will present the work in-progress at WMC December 7, and, following a one-week technical residency in the Live Arts theater, will present the world premiere at New York Live Arts March 5, 2014.

Hopkins’ residency at the WMC in partnership with New York Live Arts reflects New York Live Arts’ commitment to expanding its Studio Series residency program through off-site institutional partnerships, offering high level resources and support for the artists they commission.

At New York Live Arts, A Living Documentary is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The Jerome Foundation, Foundation for Contemporary Art and by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund. The work was developed, in part, through a Suitcase Fund residency at Bunker, Ljublana, Slovakia, with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Public funding for The Watermill Center Artist Residency Program is provided by Suffolk County and is made possible by The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Story/Time (2012) is inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy (1958)a work in which Cage sat alone on stage reading an unbroken stream of one-minute stories to a small audience. In Story/Time, Bill T. Jones reads his own one-minute stories amidst a spellbinding landscape of dance and original music composed and mixed live by collaborator Ted Coffey. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach and governed by chance procedures, this “wondrously original” (Dance Magazine) and “radically engaging” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune) work is an ever-changing score that yields a unique performance each night. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “…a dance theater rollercoaster with surprises around every corner.”

Story/Time was co-commissioned by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

Play and Play: an Evening of Movement and Music (2012) features a collection of works set to chamber music, including D-Man in the Waters, Spent Days Out Yonder and Continuous Replay, performed with a new musical score. All performances of the program in New York and on tour will be accompanied by live music.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters Radiates the clarity of love.”

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet. As The New York Times states, “…it offers a clearer look at the tension between loose swing and angular articulation in Mr. Jones’s movement. It shows his skill in establishing a foreground and a background while letting them blend.”

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces 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. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) 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. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

/Story (2013) is a continuation of the Company’s investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interrogated by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft an energetic conversation between the music and movement. Called a “strong” work with “compellingly enigmatic duets…’Story/’ is alive with glimpses of ordinary life” (The New York Times).

A Rite (2013) represents an intriguing and powerful collaboration between two leading American directors and their companies. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company 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. Called “a serious, intricate, multidirectional centennial tribute to a work of art whose spell it deepens” (The New York Times), A Rite was commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

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 an iconoclastic artistic sensibility.

Story/Time (2012) is inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy (1958), a work in which Cage sat alone on stage reading an unbroken stream of one-minute stories to a small audience. In Story/Time, Bill T. Jones reads his own one-minute stories amidst a spellbinding landscape of dance and original music composed and mixed live by collaborator Ted Coffey. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach and governed by chance procedures, this “wondrously original” (Dance Magazine) and “radically engaging” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune) work is an ever-changing score that yields a unique performance each night. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “…a dance theater rollercoaster with surprises around every corner.”

Story/Time was co-commissioned by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

Play and Play: an Evening of Movement and Music (2012) features a collection of works set to chamber music, including D-Man in the Waters, Spent Days Out Yonder, and Continuous Replay, performed with a new musical score. All performances of the program in New York and on tour will be accompanied by live music.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters Radiates the clarity of love.”

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet. As The New York Times states, “…it offers a clearer look at the tension between loose swing and angular articulation in Mr. Jones’s movement. It shows his skill in establishing a foreground and a background while letting them blend.”

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces 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. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) 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. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

/Story (2013) is a continuation of the Company’s investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interrogated by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft an energetic conversation between the music and movement. Called a “strong” work with “compellingly enigmatic duets…’Story/’ is alive with glimpses of ordinary life” (The New York Times).

New Work for the Desert is New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning choreographer Beth Gill’s upcoming performance, which will premiere this spring at New York Live Arts. This evening length, impressionistic dance abstracts the themes of ambition, journey and love within an aesthetic world inspired by Trisha Brown’s 1987 masterpiece Newark and the natural landscape of the United States’ Southwest desert.

Collaborating artists include lighting designer Thomas Dunn and longtime composer Jon Moniaci, who received a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for his work on Gill’s Electric Midwife. Gill and Dunn are transforming New York Live Arts’ theater into a reflective white box space, which shifts through saturated color fields reminiscent of the desert’s visually dramatic transformations. Moniaci’s composition, which is performed live, further activates the visceral presence of the theater through vibration and the localization of sound. Immersed in this environment, each dancer struggles differently within the rigidity of the form, to claim gestures and unlock expression.

New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning performer and choreographer Kimberly Bartosik’s You are My Heat and Glare unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists. This evening-length work features a unique duet for Bartosik and her longtime collaborator, lighting designer Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Inspired by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water”, the work grapples with the rawness of intimacy, asking: What are we made of but hunger and rage? Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the extraordinary cast.

Described as a hybrid performance between theater, choreography and a social experiment, Serbian artists Saša Asentić and Ana Vujanović engage the audience through a social role play and live action game structure where audience members are, each one, actor, participant and catalyst for change. On Trial Together has been shown in Berlin, Germany and Novi Sad, Serbia and was developed, in part, through New York Live Arts’ Suitcase Fund international cultural exchange program.

On Trial Together was developed, in part, under the auspices of The Suitcase Fund, the international cultural exchange program of New York Live Arts, with support from The Trust for Mutual Understanding.

The April 10 performance will be live streamed in collaboration with live streaming startup 2ndline.tv.
 
The eagerly anticipated reconstruction of Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981), Brown’s first musical collaboration, features original music from Robert Ashley’s, Atalanta. According to Brown, Son of Gone Fishin’ reaches the “apogee of complexity in [her] work.” This diabolically complex choreographic structure is belied by the constant ebb and flow of six dancers accompanied by musical arrangements from orchestral parts of three operas in Ashley’s Atalanta. The performances at Live Arts will debut newly created costumes by original costume designer Judith Shea, inspired by her archival design notes. Archival notes from the original collaboration, featuring a set by Donald Judd, will also be presented online.

Also newly reconstructed, Solo Olos (1976) is a section of Brown’s Line Up, a series of dances created at a point in Brown’s choreographic career when she was exploring a concept she called “Pure Movement,” which denotes movement free of other connotations. Epitomizing the rigor and play in Brown’s work, Solo Olos utilizes a brilliant network of interconnected phrases danced both forwards and backwards. As a “Caller” gives directions to the performers, an impromptu composition is revealed. As described by Deborah Jowitt in The Village Voice, Solo Olos is as beautiful and subtly shaped as water rippling over stones. Like the title, the movements flow along, pause, and then reverse.”

Rogues (2011) was recently described as “[s]implest and best…[a]s they tipped, stepped, rotated and twisted, their dancing celebrated life rather than artifice” by Alastair Macaulay in The New York Times following its premiere at the Fall for Dance Festival. This duet for two men explores unison movement and aberration. With original music by Alvin Curran, costumes by Kay Voyce and lights by John Torres, Rogues  “enthrallingly display[s] how an impulse that begins in a shift of the torso or a lift of the arm can create a momentum that the body, effortlessly it seems, converts into a phrase of shape and texture” (The New York Times).

Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 (1980) is Brown’s “breathtaking” (The New York Times) collaboration with Japanese fog artist Fujiko Nakaya. This mysterious piece that flirts with perception and illusion features four dancers moving through Nakaya’s fog “cloud sculpture,” which creates sound as water passes through high-pressure nozzles. The movement reflects the delicate balance of the air surrounding the dancers, both constantly changing form and drifting off. Part of Brown’s “Unstable Molecular Structure” cycle, Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 features costumes by Judith Shea and lights by Beverly Emmons.

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 an iconoclastic artistic sensibility. As New York Magazine says, "The combination of brisk formality and a deeply sensual attack...was riveting decades ago and it's riveting today."

Body Against Body was comissioned by the ICA/Boston.

In i shot denzel, Acosta presents the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” The concept for this new work is to strip the work of past presences and create a physically “challenging” solo on his body exploring black masculinity within the context of contemporary or "classical" movement.
 
Dworman’s New York Live Arts Commission, macromen, zooms in, on a micro scale, to physical states that construct theatricality in the body. Balletic postures are affected by abstract qualities and textures that explore virtuosity on a molecular level.

Martita Abril
Ripping Up the Finish is inspired by the behavior of a plastic bag in motion, what provokes it to move and the different qualities it acquires from external forces.
 
Maximilian Balduzzi
REQUIEM/Imposter is a study on loss and transformation that challenges the inevitability of mortality.
 
Ben Grinberg & Nick Gillette
Communitas is a duet at the intersection of dance and theater which explores balance, stability and exhaustion.
 
Daniel Holt
A Monk’s Quantum Dinner with Andre is a fusion of krump, popping, contemporary and house vocabularies that physicalizes the intent and conversation at the quantum level of the body.
 
Leslie Parker
Crossroads/Gateways draws upon the sacred and traditional and examines the potential to affirm and reposition black identity in America.
 
Gabrielle Revlock
Halo is an intimate and sensual solo that explores the fields of energy around the dancing body through the use of a hula hoop.
 
 
The 2013-14 Fresh Tracks artists come from a diverse range of movement backgrounds, defining new terrain in contemporary dance, acrobatic physical theater, krump and popping.  These six emerging choreographers were selected by the 2013 Fresh Tracks audition panel Kyle Abraham, Paisid Aramphongphan, Ephrat Asherie, Leah Cox, Boo Froebel, Wendy Perron, Carla Peterson and Vicky Shick.

Donna Uchizono Company (DUC) presents new and reworked eveninglength works. Fire Underground, DUC’s newest work, draws from Uchizono’s harrowing experience of a complex international adoption process. Featuring a cast of five performers, the multi-layered work is designed as a series of “salon” style performances that illuminate the complex crises of our time and the interconnections that bind us as we witness the courage to be human. State of Heads, a work for three dancers that premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in 1999 and was last seen on the New York Live Arts stage last April as part of Live Ideas: The Worlds of Oliver Sacks, features an original sound-score by “Bessie” award-winning artist James Lo and explores the concept of disjointedness and the passage of time.

Choreographer Jérôme Bel’s Disabled Theater is a collaboration between Bel and 11 actors from Zurich’s Theater Hora, Switzerland’s best-known professional theater company comprised of actors with learning and mental disabilities. With Disabled Theater, Bel opens up a space where disability is not expelled from visual and discursive practices, nor hidden behind the screen of political correctness. Instead, he places it squarely at the center of a discourse that has a bearing on both the aesthetic and political dimensions.

Sparking both debate and praise across Europe, the work was a sensation at Documenta 13. Roberta Smith of the New York Times dubbed it “transcendent art,” adding that she “started shocked and disoriented and ended up completely caught up in it and grateful for what it revealed to me about what is often called ‘our common humanity.”

A new work by up and coming French dancer-choreographer Maud Le Pladec, DEMOCRACY is a part of a three-part series titled To Bang on a Can. The work explores the relationship between sound and gesture using atonality and breaks in form, and is performed to the live music of Julia Wolfe, one of the founders of the music group “Bang on a Can” and Italian composer, Francesco Filidei. This work, along with Alain Buffard’s, will be part of the month-long, multi-venue French-American Dance Festival taking place throughout the month of May 2014 in New York.

Big Dance Theater’s New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” nominated Ich, Kürbisgeist reflects their signature blend of performance, text and visual design. A collaboration with playwright Sibyl Kempson and the members of Big Dance Theater, and directed by Paul Lazar, Ich, Kürbisgeist, originally co-commissioned by Performance Space 122 and The Chocolate Factory, returns just in time for Halloween.
 
Kempson’s Ich, Kürbisgeist is set in a harsh quasi-medieval landscape facing destruction, populated by a community speaking a rigorous, specific and completely invented language. Every word is semi-recognizable: an amalgam of English, Swedish, German and Sid Ceasar. The language is as tough and unforgiving as the windswept, uncultivated landscape.
 
The five characters, costumed by visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra, boast of surviving prior catastrophes as they bitterly recount lost times. They sing; they dance; they harvest pumpkin seeds. All the while, they feel threatened by vaguely understood, external forces from which there is no protection. They are grounded in fear and doom.

Everything looks like something. But apparently you can’t judge a book by its cover. Despite the interplay and disjunction between essence and appearance, all artistic work uses its perceptual surface (what it looks like, sounds like, feels like, …) as a means of transmission. The aesthetics of a work of art speak to the value systems of its author(s), which are in turn formed through the construction of such eternally slippery terms as beauty.

Within between is a new evening-length work by Jasperse in collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler. Jasperse seeks both to embrace and to resist the habits of his own history, to create a cross pollination or catalytic mating of sensibilities, where the work emerges out of the space between what seems to be distinct terrains.

May 28 Come Early Conversation: John Jasperse and Ariel Osterweis, PhD discuss Within Between

May 29 Stay Late Discussion: Means of Transmission, Tere O'Connor in conversation with John Jasperse

Please join us on May 31 from 1 - 4pm for Shared Practice with John Jasperse. For more information click here.


Within between is commissioned by New York Live Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund.

A response to Dig Deep is Arkadi Zaides’ dance interpretation of Julia Wolfe’s composition, Dig Deep.

The performance will be preceded by a series of short talks on body and music featuring writer and filmmaker Elena Mannes and music philosopher Peter Szendy.

A tutelary figure for the work, Baron Samedi invokes ghosts, extracts the perfect dancing body and is a symbol of visibility in life and invisibility in death. Featuring an international cast including Nadia Beugré, David Thomson and Will Rawls (among others), Buffard continues his longstanding connection with music as thematic source material, harnessing the music of Kurt Weill performed by live musicians to bring Baron Samedi to life.
