For her Studio Series showing, Forté-Saunders will present What else (working title), her newest solo, evening-length work. 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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

Inspired by John Cage’s influential mid-20th Century work, Indeterminacy, in which Cage read 90 randomly sequenced one-minute stories interrupted by a chance musical score, Story/Time is performed in 70 minutes by 9 dancers, performing choreography from the Company’s 32-year history. 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. Mellon Foundation, with additional funding from the Florence Gould Foundation and the support of the Institut français through the TransARTE program.

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. Mellon Foundation, with additional funding from the Florence Gould Foundation and the support of the Institut français through the TransARTE program.

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. 

Oct 23 at 6:30pm Come Early Conversation: Sequencing Non-Linear Narratives, Choreographer and Educator Nia Love Discusses the Creative Practice of Cynthia Oliver.

Oct 24 Stay Late Discussion: Her History - Her Present - Her Future, Cynthia Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet in Conversation with Jaamil Olawale Kosoko.

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 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.

ZviDance's presentation of Surveillance 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.

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.

Aurora Arteaga, Spanish singer and composer, will be presenting a special concert in duo with the Korean jazz pianist Mina Yu, including original compositions, creative arrangements of jazz standards, Brazilian music and some well-known pop tunes revisited from a fresh point of view. Arteaga has been working as a musician in the main Jazz clubs and festivals of Spain, singing also in Finland, Hungary, Italy, France and India. Now she is developing her music and career in New York thanks to a Fulbright Scholarship for Artists, awarded by the governments of Spain and US. Her music is inventive and intense, with a warm voice often closer to instrumental colors that melt very well with Yu's creativity and piano skills.

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". Will you live it as it is or will you find some way of solving it?

The NYC residency is supported by the Suitcase Fund of New York Live Arts with funding from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and by the Vijana Vipaji Foundation (VVF) of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in partnership with Community Folk Art Center Inc.

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.

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.

You are my heat and glare is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts.

You are my heat and glare was created, in part, with support from the Jerome Foundation; New Music USA; FUSED, French US Exchange in Dance; and American Dance Abroad. The work was developed, in part, through creative residencies at Jacob’s Pillow, Mount Tremper Arts, Merce Cunningham Trust, and the Center for Performance Research.

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.

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.

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. Musically, Part’s tintinnabular music is characterized by two types of voices, the “tintinnabular voice” arpeggiates the tonic triad, and the second of which moves diatonically in stepwise motion.

Inishlacken Music: Danny Boy, Sinead O’Connor; Celtic Harp and Pan Flute, Kitaro; Inishlacken, Bill Whelan

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

– Maud Le Pladec


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.

A response to Dig Deep is Arkadi Zaides’ dance interpretation of Julia Wolfe’s composition, Dig Deep. Distinguished by an intense physicality and a relentless power that pushes performers to extremes and demands attention from the audience, Zaides explores a somatic response to his personal experience of immigration, homelessness and in-betweenness. 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.

First performed in April 2012 at the Théâtre de Nîmes in France, Alain Buffard’s Baron Samedi is named after a Haitian “Vaudou” spirit. 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.

The source vocabulary is derived from diverse Caribbean folk and traditional dance expressions as well as  North American Urban dance expressions, textured through contemporary choreographic movement  manipulations and devising experimental theatre processes that include live music, spoken word text and action study. It shows both the historical connections to the vocabulary and also the intersections of  expression and ownership. The works raise questions about the passing down of intolerance, the negative impact of brain drain and self-exile, social and religious tensions and homophobia from the West Indian community.
 
The title work, A Yard Abroad, Dubwise, performed by FuturPointe Dance, affirms a Caribbean identity of self reliance through physical investigations of the "island cool" as both a survival mechanism and a way of being in the north.

The evening will also feature South Facing Window, Walker’s solo for Bessie-award winner Germaul Barnes and performances by Jermaine Rowe, Jerome Stigler and the First Wave Hip Hop Theatre Ensemble.

NuMoRune Collaborative's presentation of A YARD ABROAD - An Immigration Narrative 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.

To launch the celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is presenting the work of four extraordinary contemporary choreographers – all based in Taipei, and all ACC grantees.

WAY OUT is Fang-Yi Sheu’s exuberant, athletic celebration of dance as a “way out” of the challenges of life and, for the ten gifted young dancers in her piece, a way out of their home base of Taipei and onto an important New York stage as part of the Asian Cultural Council’s 50th anniversary celebration.

FUEL is Huang Yi Studio’s latest creation and will premiere in New York at ACC’s 50th anniversary celebration. In this work, Huang Yi seeks to explore new possibilities for martial arts in modern dance. Based on sanda, a form of Chinese boxing, the movement is derived from combat skills of kicking, boxing, and slams.

About Living confronts essential questions for Chou Shu-Yi’s very human body: Why do we dance? What makes my body dance this way? After traveling to different parts of the world, he came to realize that cultures and traditions have combined in our physical body to become a hybrid, which he reveals in his quiet, contemplative solo.

Cheng Tsung-Lung has won numerous prizes and competitions in Europe and Asia for his thoughtful, delicate work that finds a base in Western contemporary dance and is inflected with Chinese sensibilities. Newly appointed as the assistant artistic director of Cloud Gate 2, he will create a special solo for himself entitled Present as part of ACC’s 50th anniversary celebration

Makeda Thomas celebrates her 10th Anniversary Season with two performances at New York Live Arts. Noted scholar Thomas DeFrantz (author of Dancing Many Drums: Excavations in African American Dance and Dancing Revelations: Alvin Ailey’s Embodiment of African American Culture) leads audiences through discussions on Thomas' "richly honed" work and process. Her dancers deliver "gestures you can feel in your gut and heavenly dancing you want to watch forever" (Eva Yaa Asantewaa) in highlights from older works FreshWater, A Sense of Place, Los Colores and Subtle Changes/The Talented.
 
The program also features a preview excerpt of the highly anticipated, make. believe., a new work in collaboration with poet Queen GodIs. An evening-length, multimedia movement; a dream state of dance, poetry, visual art, music and food, make. believe. uses science fiction as a storytelling tool to retrace and recreate moments from the space/time lapse between the collaborators' first and present encounters. The project also engages Grisha Coleman (Music Composition), Tamilla Woodard (Dramaturgy), Stephen Arnold (Lighting Design), Sean Naftel (Set Construction), and David Tinapple (Visual Media). Premiere planned in 2014.

Elisa Monte Dance and Jennifer Muller/The Works Join Forces to present three shared program performances of Monte / Muller MOVE! featuring five pieces—two world premieres, 18 dancers, five noted designers and live performances by composer/cellist Julia Kent. These two 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 works.
 
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. 
 
The 18 extraordinary performers push physical capability, standing out as individuals yet working in cohesive ensembles. Monte/Muller MOVE! offers the opportunity to experience two acclaimed dance companies together on one stage.

Shattered (Monte) captures the spirit and rhythm of Michael Gordon’s music. Dance Insider described Shattered  as, “so potent you almost sense the ashy aftertaste of a thunderbolt.”  The company forcefully captures the essence and energy of the piece – an engaging, complex tour-de-force performed with lightning speed and intensity.


Unstable Ground, (Monte) explores the feeling of universal instability permeating the world due to unexpected shifts in our environment and economy. This full company piece highlights our dependency on structures both natural and manmade that no longer may be able to help sustain our current way of life.

Volkmann Suite (Monte) is a tribute to the renowned photographer Roy Volkmann, whose photographs portray Elisa Monte dancers in beautiful, sensual images. The creative process of the dance was inspired by the still lives of Volkmann, his images given life through the movement. The work is a “Rodinesque” ode to dance.

Speeds (Muller), the signature piece of The Works' early years is danced to the original music of Burt Alcantara, a pioneer in computer-generated music. Based on the “change” of velocities Speeds  became known for the contrasts of its virtuostic dancing, casual spirit and  celebratory atmosphere.

Grass (Muller/World Premiere), loosely inspired by Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, expresses Whitman’s view that we are not individually separate but one entity with a need to evolve towards compassionate unity. All performances played live by composer/cellist Julia Kent.

The St. Louis-based Modern American Dance Company (MADCO) performs an evening of works by former company member Joseph Mills. Mills performed with MADCO from 1981-1987, was a member of MOMIX and The Erick Hawkins Dance Company, and has been performing and choreographing independently since 1990. Since 2000, Mills has frequently returned to St. Louis to create works for the company, and in this program MADCO will perform three of his works. The first, Reflections in the Well of Solace, is a meditation on grief and transformation and is in part, a response to the tragedies of 9-11. Scheduled to create a new work for the company in late 2001, the entire country was riveted by the horrifying events. This work emerged as a healing act with the dancers, reconstructing movements of unspeakable grief, and transforming them into movements of healing, even joy. The second work, Getting Lucky: Secret Moments in the Natural World, is a musing on the world of animal documentaries, and imagines a zany menagerie of exotic creatures and their sexual proclivities. The third piece is a world premiere, showcasing MADCO’s versatility as both theatrical storytellers and dancer/athletes of the highest level. Working from selkie myths of Celtic lore, dancers play with gravity and create illusions of weightlessness and weave a narrative, ranging from self-indulgence, to melancholic longing, to playful and joyful celebration. Mills will also dance on the program, reprising his performance of Alan Boeding’s audience favorite, Circle Walker.

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

Each of the five unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, and the following group pieces:  Walkaround Vermeer - 6/7 at 7:30, Carnival of the Animals - 6/8 at 3pm, Garden Party & The Unanswered Question (by Anna Sokolow) – 6/8 at 7:30pm, Waterstudy & Extra Genre – 6/9 at 12pm, Rainforest & Space Fantasy – 6/9 at 4pm.

Their New York debut features work by Founding Artistic Director Randy James, as well as David Parker, Claire Porter and Manuel Vignoulle.

The program at Live Arts includes: Bang by David Parker, founder of The Bang Group and a 2013 Guggenheim Fellow. This rhythmic duet reflects its two bodies as tap shoes - and has never been performed by anyone other than Parker’s company members.

Interview by Claire Porter (a 2013 Guggenheim Fellow), with Guest Artist Tony Bordonaro, who currently appears in the hit Off-Broadway show Sleep No More.

Together We Stand by Manuel Vignoulle, formerly a member of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet and Geneva Ballet.  Together We Stand was created for the World Debut of 10 Hairy Legs in November 2012, and explores the warrior ethic. It features an original score entitled “Together” by Vignoulle and “Al Maghfera” by Hugues De Courson with sound designed by Dan Agosto & Johnny Nevin. 

Pillar of Salt – This New York Premiere by Randy James reveals the complex inter-relationships among five men – from vulnerability to inter-dependence to surrender with poignancy.

Shimmer/Glimmer: Re-gendering Works of Dance Toward Discursive Exposure

The lecture will look at examples of dance works, including those of Isadora Duncan, Mary Wigman and more contemporary works, in which recasting dancers of a different gender suggest opportunities to bring a glimmer of the seemingly--invisible discourses of gender and sexuality within performance into view. Jeff Friedman is Associate Professor of Dance Studies at the Dance Department, Mason Gross School of the Arts, at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

Performed with live musicians, Play and Play: An evening of movement and music applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time.  Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Ravel this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together. Repertory includes D-Man in the Waters (1989), Bill T. Jones's joyful tour de force and a genuine modern dance classic, Ravel: Landscape or Portrait (2012), a new work that reflects the wistful and melancholic sentiment of Ravel's String Quartet in F Major as well as its precision and restraint and the classical Continuous Replay (1977, revised 1991), performed with a new score composed by Jerome Begin. Every performance features live music.

In this celebration of milestones, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company celebrate their combined 50 years of artistic achievements with the centennial of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.

In A Rite, dancers and actors alike burst onto to the stage feet stomping, knees quivering – a complex and knowing homage to Nijinsky’s original “Sacrificial Maiden” choreographic motif - to the beat of drums and the strum of strings in Stravinsky’s composition that energized and shocked audiences 100 years ago at its premiere in Paris. Since then, The Rite of Spring has taken on legendary status as a symbol of artistic insurrection and a cornerstone of the avant-garde.

In this work of dance-theater, the influence of chorales, Lithuanian folk-tunes and jazz on Stravinsky’s music is revealed. An impassioned scholar waxes poetic about the cyclical structure of Stravinsky’s work that, in turn, evokes questions about our place in space/time. A shell-shocked WWI veteran finds solace from his battle-scarred psyche in the work’s opening chords while reeling under the relentless assault of The Augurs’ bombastic percussion. Each of us is implicated in his crisis.

A Rite is an intriguing and powerful collaboration between artists Bill T. Jones, Anne Bogart and their companies joining minds, bodies, and voices to offer a fête of Stravinsky’s incendiary work and its cultural resonance. 

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

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

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

"Working with Bill so far has been nothing less than miraculous. We listen to one another and then each of us makes bold suggestions." - Anne Bogart

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.

Across the entire 1969-70 period as the young Dr. Sacks worked with the remarkable “human statues” at Beth Abraham hospital in the Bronx, bringing them suddenly back to life through his administrations of the drug L- Dopa—the story he would go on to chronicle a few years later in his masterpiece Awakenings—he was filming his patients’ developments the entire while. Recently a box containing seventeen reels of super-8 footage, over six hours’ worth, resurfaced, and New York Live Arts commissioned Bill Morrison, the master behind Decasia and other such classic quickenings of long lost filmstock, to fashion a brief lyric distillation of the Sacks trove.

Making its U.S. premiere, The Inkomati (dis)cord is a work made
collaboratively by South African artist Boyzie Cekwana and
Mozambique artist Panaibra Canda. In 1984, the Mozambique of
Samora Machel and the South African apartheid state signed the
Nkomati accord, a non-aggression pact. The Inkomati (dis)cord is
Cekwana and Canda’s referral to this failed historical agreement, as
well as the river that lent its name to it. In an attempt to break through artificial borders and traverse territories, using their own bodies, skins, identities and histories, the choreographers explore the internalized colonial boundaries that still alienate shared histories and aspirations.

New York Live Arts 3rd Floor Studio

Is it possible to earn one’s living as a theater artist in New York? Have you ever had to sacrifice artistic integrity for the sake of financial survival? What are the ethical implications of contributing one’s artistic talents to work one does not support or believe in? Do you believe the ability to earn money and the ability to create great artistic works are two different abilities? Are they related in any way? Are they potentially complementary, or mutually exclusive?

These are some of the questions that will be posed by musical performance artist Cynthia Hopkins during live, unscripted and unrehearsed interviews with Pavol Liska & Kelly Copper of Nature Theater of Oklahoma, in A LIVING DOCUMENTARY (work in progress). Interspersed between the live interviews, Ms. Hopkins will portray a series of semi-fictional comedic characters (some based on previous interviews and some invented), who deliver tales of the struggle to survive as a performing artist in monologue and song. Both the live interviews and the character segments will be videotaped and projected on a movie screen, to enhance viewing and achieve a talk-show atmosphere. A LIVING DOCUMENTARY is the child that might be born from a union between an Anna Deveare Smith show and a Carol Burnett show, if that child were consumed by the trials and tribulations of earning a living as a professional theater artist in the 21st century.

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

A Rite will have its world premiere January 25, 2013 at Carolina Performing Arts.

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

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

Born in Burkina Faso, choreographer and performer Souleymane Badolo’s African heritage is a driving force in his work. The evening will include a new work guided by the Gurunsi divination system bagger, a ritual where form and structure are suggested through the meaning inherent in thrown cowrie shells. Also on the program, Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO is inspired by Badolo’s rich family legacy as it traces the journey of his great-great-grandfather; the lessons his father taught him; and the responsibility he feels to his own son about their ancestry.

BARACK will premiere at New York Live Arts on April 25th, 2013.

Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO premiered on April 21, 2012 at The Gatehouse of Harlem Stage.

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. In The Spectators, Tanowitz continues her investigation of dance steps as objects and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements, paring them down, setting them on edge, blowing them up in a bird’s eye view, running them past one another and leading them forward and askew. 

The Spectators will premiere at New York Live Arts on May 15, 2013.

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

poem premiered at New York Live Arts in November 2012.

Resident Commission Artists, Kyle Abraham, will share his examination of themes and ideas through two different showings as part of Live Artery.  Both evenings Abraham will show an excerpt from his recent work, Pavement, which premiered at Harlem Stage earlier this fall as well as some of his working ideas around his New York Live Arts new commission. 

Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham's artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and visual arts, Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion's goal is to delve into identity in relation to personal histories. Abraham’s choreography intertwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior, and all things visual to create an avenue for personal investigation. Kyle's work is interdisciplinary, with dance at its helm, and frequently addresses themes related to race relations, queerness, and Americana.

In 2012, New York Live Arts appointed Kyle as their second Resident Commissioned Artist.  This appointment gives artists the rare opportunity of two years of salary and benefits and a fully produced commission by New York Live Arts.  In Abraham’s commission he is working with a singular idea: an historical homage celebrating one hundred fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation and twenty years after the abolishment of Apartheid in South Africa. The piece uses Max Roach’s protest album We Insist: Max Roach’s Freedom Now Suite as its inspiration.

These two works, created from the same movement material, reveal the wide-ranging possibilities inherent in movement.  Duet, with its simple structure, draws attention to the tension between and elegance inherent in two people moving in perfect unison.  Power/Full confronts the audience more directly, posing a veiled question about power through its soloist-against-group format.  Both works provide entry into some of the most detailed and sophisticated movement Mr. Jones has made to date. Licensed together.

“Duet has made me change my perception on what dance has to be and ultimately opened my eyes to the possibilities that group collaborations can bring to a single work. It also reinforced the importance of being able to work with another individual.”

Daniel Johnston’s innocent, childlike songs cue the creation of another world on stage where dancers exist as both sophisticated movers and human beings in their most simple, unpretentious, and hopeful state.  Mr. Jones’ distinct style is evident here, drawing freely from classical ballet, investigations of gesture and shape, and his own complex understanding of the versatility of the human spine.

“ADF students performed Love Re-Defined during ADF's 80th Anniversary season. It was a beautiful and challenging work for the dancers and audiences. I think most people were struck by how relevant the work was and continues to be; specific moments throughout the work took on its original motivations and yet simultaneously brought to light current happenings in our world. A powerful work, incredible performance, and night to remember. Thank you for the opportunity to share this work with the ADF Community. “
-Jodee Nimerichter, ADF Director
 
“Mr. Jones uses the idea that everyone has a voice that should be shared. I think the material and methods of working make the dancers and audience want to be more engaged in the world around them, and help them to put more love out into the earth.”

Spent Days Out Yonder is excerpted from You Walk?, Mr. Jones’ poetic rumination on the influence of Latin culture on the New World. The work reflects the beauty and restraint of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 and infuses it with a subtle wit and postmodern structure that allows dancers to move in and out of the phrase of their own accord. The movement is firmly rooted in Mr. Jones’ elegant, weighted physical vocabulary that challenges dancers to move with ease, efficiency, and physical honesty.

“Learning and performing Spent Days Out Yonder was a wonderful experience for our students, both challenging and rewarding, as it taught them to pay attention to every detail of the movement and to be consistent and precise with the timing while at the same time making their decisions within the given improvisational structure.”

Originally choreographed by Arnie Zane, Continuous Replay is a brilliant and challenging piece for performers and audience members that traces its roots to Zane’s interest in photography and film. The piece is based on 45 gestures accumulated in space and time, cunningly complicated by an improvisational score and discrete movement events. Normally performed naked by the company, student casts may be clothed. A DJ may accompany this work as a live music option.

"Thank you so much for bringing the masterful, beautiful "Continuous Replay" to life on our students!  It was better than I had dared to hope.  Your generosity and wise guidance with the students was simply inspirational to watch.  I know they loved working with you.  What a strong, caring community you built!  The students went to such depths with their performances and took such wise risks.  I know the movement, performance and group information you gave them was very important for their growth.” – Susan Marshall, Princeton University

CROWD (for Bill T. Jones) is a commissioned, site-specific work by artist Donald Baechler.  A large-scale paper collage constructed directly on the Ford Foundation Live Gallery wall, located in the lobby.

Like wallpaper, the mural adheres directly to the surface of the wall, and covers the entire south-facing wall of the gallery. The artist designed this configuration of the mural specifically for the Ford Foundation Live Gallery. The width and height of the wall allowed Baechler to scale the mural to a colossal size—it measures more than 31 feet wide and over 10 feet high—the largest he has ever made. The effect is to transform the space and create an immersive environment.
 
Also on view in the gallery is Baechler’s Flower from 2005. With this work, and others from his well-known flower series, Baechler explores texture, line, color, form, and balance. The result is a complex and engaging composition that beckons the viewer to look beyond a recognizable symbol and consider the process of art-making. Flower is part of New York Live Arts unique collection of works by visual artists that also includes works by Robert Longo, Alex Katz, Fred Wilson, Julian Schnabel and other major artists.

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.

"I cannot tell you what it was like to see our dancers explode onto the stage with D-Man. It was an absolute testimony to the power of great art to heal, to inspire, to bring us together. I heard people in the audience crying, and by the end shouting Bravo and standing up. It was such a gift to be able to perform this piece, for this audience, here in Boston."

Hailed by some critics as an heir to both George Balanchine and Merce Cunningham, Karole Armitage returns to Dance Theater Workshop/New York Live Arts for the first time since the premiere of her groundbreaking work, Drastic-Classicism (1981). For her 2013 premiere, Mechanics of the Dance Machine, Armitage is exploring a new form of presentation. The audience is invited on stage to see movement from novel points of view and to participate in the performance itself by following light cues indicating where to walk or stand. The idea came to Armitage while working on the David Adjmi play, Marie Antoinette at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University. At Versailles, the court was given the privilege of watching Marie Antoinette dress, eat, play, and sleep. The voyeuristic thrill of intimate observation led Armitage to the idea of putting an audience on stage observing the ferocious concentration of dancers.

Mechanics of the Dance Machine alternates between electrically fierce dance and metaphors of intimacy and its unfinished business. The audience follows pathways created in red light by lighting designer Clifton Taylor that move in and around the dancers. The patterns have a beauty of their own derived from mathematical shapes called Walsh functions. The asymmetrical patterns become increasing complex as the dance unfolds. Audience members can stand, walk or chose to sit in reserved seats as they prefer. The evolving checkerboard patterns seen from seats will provide rich geometrical designs as dancers move inside the unconventional frames and oddly shaped spaces. 

Armitage will continue mixing pointe work and non-pointe work with fractal geometry (the shape of mountains and clouds), improvisation, and contemporary practices in a hybrid performance with music by composer, Gabriel Prokofiev, a dance, grime, electro and hip hop producer trained in classical composition. (Gabriel is the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev.) Using material from Prokofiev’s Concerto for Turntable and Orchestra, and nostalgic fragments of Bach, Armitage and dancers explore a new framework for expressive movement suffused with eroticism, fertile impurities, improper hybrids and unexpected idiosyncrasies including DNA from the Swan Lake port de bras, experienced from multiple perspectives.

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, which translates both to "another theater" and "other theater" in achugar's native Spanish, 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.

Lance Gries’ Immanent Field, a collaborative work with Juliette Mapp and Diane Madden, is a trio that begins with the belief that there exists a primary field of conscious energy that pervades and connects everything. How do dancers, as masters of moving consciousness into action and form, access and create from this potentiality? How do time, space and content become differentiated through this active exchange? In Immanent Field, Gries in interested in creating a dynamic realization between what the performers and public sense as immaterial and witness as its material manifestation in dance as an art form. Using these explorations as a jumping off point, Gries views these seemingly intangible elements as essential formal ones, organizing them into a dance so they become the vital gestures of a choreography of experience.

Burr Johnson’s newest work in progress, Two Poetic Worlds, consists of the second draft of a group dance for four fronts. Departing from his previous practice of guiding artistic creation in response to the spaces in which works would eventually be performed, Johnson uses the audience’s seating as a starting point. Johnson, a “striking” (The New York Times) dancer known for creating “promising choreography” with “delicious qualities” (The New York Times), explores themes such as physical implication of audience members, proximity and diversity of vantage points in his current work.

Tara O’Con’s Frame explores ideas surrounding the role of cinematic tone in the performance of movement. Three months into the first phase of choreographic exploration, O’Con approaches the work as a cinematographer might approach a film. How are actions framed by the space? When are the performers zoomed in and zoomed out from the viewers' point of view? When is the duration of images sustained versus choppy? How do all of those factors affect the experience of building and releasing tension? Analyzing how the performer’s focus guides that of the viewer, the work also questions how sustained images or durational movement can resonate when cut by abrupt stillness or change.

In-Process talks moderated by Donna Faye Burchfield and Craig T. Peterson

Mutually interested in ideas of queerness and heroism, Poe and Zaritt work toward the creation of a performance world that explores danger, questioning the contrast between closeness and loneliness, and sincerity versus hyperbole. Initiated by the desire to see what happens when two strangers create work together, their creative process involves personal self-discovery within the framework of a partnership; exploring the meaning of ‘self’ within the context of the duet form. Through movement, Poe and Zaritt approach one another’s moving bodies as unknown entities, questioning the image of the superhero and juxtaposing it with that of its antithesis: the failure, the victim, the fallen.

When it premiered in April It featured women who were actual survivors of sexual violence, in their childhoods, as adults, or both.
