“How does an individual decision open the possibility for collective action? What do we strive for, or against? Who do we give our consent to? Must we disobey democracy? How do we build a controversialist community?”
– 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.

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 NuMoRune Collaborative presents A YARD ABROAD - An Immigration Narrative, a collection of contemporary dance works.  It is a story of becoming American while remaining traditionally Caribbean, “It’s about how enculturation affects the formation of new identity and new cultural practices as a part of the immigration narrative,” said Chris Walker, Artistic Director and choreographer.

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.

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.

Inspired by the work of Alexander McQueen and the magic of Harry Potter, the piece creates a moving fantasy of power dynamics, competition and strategy. It’s a Game sparks a rich palette of emotions and meaning via Selwyn’s vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, gesture, energy, release, touch and balance.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

Walter Dundervill’s LITTER consists of two primary layers of choreographic investigation: ARENA and AMERICAN SILVER. The explorations in both themes draw from aesthetic information prevalent during his childhood and adolescence. The first layer, ARENA, explores fictional representations of ancient Rome from the 1970s, specifically referencing the BBC miniseries I, Claudius and the 1969 film Fellini Satyricon. In ARENA Dundervill focuses on interpretations of historical imagery that were rooted in the conflict between traditional codes of morality and the 70s culture of burgeoning sexual independence and fluidity. The second layer, AMERICAN SILVER, uses Sam Wagstaff’s seminal Black, White and Gray exhibition and the emergence of minimalism in the 1960s. Here, Dundervill explores themes of purity and asceticism in American culture; in particular, the conflict between the act of distilling inchoate forces of nature to a pure essence and the presence of chaos and entropy within human experience.

World Premiere
With an opening performance by Cynthia Oliver

Born in Burkina Faso, choreographer and performer Souleymane Badolo’s African heritage is a driving force in his work. Badolo's newest work, BARACK, was created as an acknowledgement towards the individuals who have helped him since he moved from Burkina Faso to the U.S. four years ago, and the title of the work loosely translates as “gratitude” in his native Gurunsi. Also on the program, BuudouBADOOBADOLO 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.

BOOM!, a new duet by Cynthia Oliver featuring Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet, opens the performance program. A nugget of a larger work to come, BOOM! exposes and manipulates notions of building a life and a relationship - of a woman to herself, her history, her present and future. Negotiating and renegotiating the rules of personhood, fate and consequence, BOOM! simultaneously reveals, resists and submits to the structures and shape of a performance.

Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie In 3 Movements
In 3 Movements fuses breaking and house to reflect on our path to adulthood and the ways we come to accept the randomness of life.  

Franklin Diaz EL
In this solo dance with two singers and a percussionist that combines flamenco and contemporary movement vocabularies with African influences and Cuban sounds, Diaz considers the struggles between the past and the future.  

Megan Kendzior Rift
Shifting between moments of tender alliance, stark isolation and palpable disturbance, Rift exposes delicate and vulnerable distillations of human experience.
 

Michal Samama The Chicken Memorial
Is it possible to commemorate something so forgettable and unremarkable as a chicken? Can a performance assume the position of a site of remembrance?

Molly Poerstel-Taylor Do Beast
In Do Beast, Poerstel-Taylor is sourcing sensations associated with painful memories, instinct, imagined landscapes, sexuality and physical disintegration in response to duration.

Parul Shah enduring silence
Committed to back breaking work protected under the canopy of tradition, enduring silence takes its inspiration from women that persevere and their ignored sorrows, anonymous kinship, and desperate strength.
 

The Fresh Tracks Performance and Residency Program, created in 1965 by Dance Theater Workshop, identifies six early career artists to receive comprehensive performance and residency support. The program begins with a showcase performance in the theater followed by a 50-hour creative residency in our studios along with introductory level professional development workshops in marketing, fundraising and career development. Artists also participate in dialogue sessions facilitating open discussion about their creative process and one-on-one consultations, both with Artistic Advisor Levi Gonzalez.

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

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

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

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

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

Selfie, 2013
Gwen Welliver
Mixed-media "selfies"

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

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

Inaugural Resident Comissioned Artist World Premiere

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

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

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

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

Mellon Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund. Support is also provided by the MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and the Japan Foundation.

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

World Premiere

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

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

All tickets for the Feb 23 show at 3pm are $15.

World Premiere

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

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

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

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

Commentary = not thing is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Jerome Foundation, and by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts. The work was developed, in part, during a residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center supported by New York State DanceForce with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts.

A collaboration between choreographer Anne Juren and director Annie Dorsen, Magical is a solo dance piece enchantingly performed by Juren using the canon of feminist performance art and the rituals of a magic show.

The effect of simultaneous magic, choreography and performance entices spectators to see through the events on the stage.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Voices of Strength is curated by MAPP International Productions and presented in partnership with the Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium.

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

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

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

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

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

"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. Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts.

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

"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 Meditation on The Rite of Spring (2013) (working title) 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.

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

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

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

Program A includes:

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

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

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

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

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

Programs include nudity

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

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

Cléo from 5 to 7
Film Screening

3pm
$5 Advance/ $7 At Door

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

As part of BAM's 150 anniversary celebrations, iconic artists examine the evolution of their work at BAM over the years, referencing onscreen projections of original performance footage and images from the BAM Archive.

A BAM artist since 1983, Bill T. Jones has explored themes of identity, form, and social commentary, and has become one of the most innovative and powerful forces in modern dance and theater. Drawing on three decades of performances, Jones examines his artistic vision as showcased at BAM with Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem.

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

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

Some works are stand alone pieces, while others are sections of a larger work. With each series running under 90 minutes, audiences can enjoy a great variety of substance and style in a single evening.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Choreographer: Arnie Zane
Music: Giuseppe Verdi (Selections from La Forza del Destino)
Cast size: 4 (based on 3 men and 1 woman)
Length: 13 minutes
 





“The Gift is a gorgeous piece and deserves to be continued. It will be ever changing from cast-to-cast because no community will ever be the same. That’s the beauty of it.”

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

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

Commissioned by the DTW Commissioning Fund

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

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

Reconstruction supported by the DTW Commissioning Fund

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

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

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

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

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

Reconstruction of Spent Days Out Yonder

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Duet x 2 (1982), Continuous Replay (1977/1991)*, Blauvelt Mountain (1980)**

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

 

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Program A

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

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

Spent Days Out Yonder (2000)

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

Continuous Replay (1977, revised 1991)

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

* Requires local string octet at each engagement

Program B

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012)

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

Story/ (2013)

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

* Requires local string quartet at each engagement

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

Info on the Toni Morrison Lecture Series>

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

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

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

more info>


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Herd is a single channel video/sound installation that focuses on the extraordinary quotidian energy of New York City. The frenetic movement of the street is slowed to a pace where the viewer can form an intimate relationship to the histrionics of everyday events. Herd contains a sound score by Albert Mathias and was originally created as décor for Merce Cunningham’s Events in 2004.

Opening reception Feb 2 at 6pm

Originally presented at The Chocolate Factory, I’m Nobody! Who Are You? will be re-conceived for the New York Live Arts Ford Foundation Live Gallery Wall. The installation is comprised of a series of life-sized video portraits, presented in pairs, of individuals who are connected directly or tangentially to New York Live Arts. The work breaks boundaries by allowing the viewer to observe other people for longer lengths of time than would exist in standard social conditions. By observing paired portraits, viewers create relationships, and consequently narratives, between the participants despite the known conditions of the filming. I’m Nobody! Who Are You? challenges the viewer to consider how they construct their appearance for others and respond to the same construction of others. Ultimately, I’m Nobody! Who Are You? asks viewers to consider the artificiality of their assumptions about communities, individuals, institutions, and the arts.

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

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

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

Bill T. Jones returns to The Dance Center with Body Against Body, a new repertory program that revives and reconsiders the groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. The company will present two different programs that challenge both performer and viewer through their notions of task-based movement and non-narrative structure. Program A includes Valley CottageContinuous Replay and Monkey Run RoadProgram B includes Duet X 2Continuous Replay and Blauvelt Mountain. Conceptually and physically rigorous, these works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’ company, providing a rare look at the avant-garde origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer. These pieces also balance conflicting ideas underlying all of the Company’s work: challenge or cooperation, structuralism versus pure athletics, abstract formality against raw introspection.

Both programs contain full frontal nudity.

In Process Talks moderated by Tom Oppenheim

Sidra Bell is an emerging and sought after voice in contemporary dance with a strong vision creating works that ignite the imagination and explore the complexities of the human condition. The repertoire of her troupe, Sidra Bell Dance New York (SBDNY), features work that is haunting, emotionally transporting, articulate, sensual, ecstatic, and highly physical.  The company has become known for an unconventional, forward-looking investigative process that pushes past dance’s traditional vocabulary, venues, and boundaries. The movement material is risky, elegant, fantastical, peculiar, and darkly romantic with original themes and larger than life characters. The theatrical content approaches the psyche illuminating ideas that are beautiful, frightening, tragic, and life affirming, often exploring futurism, memory, dreams and nostalgia. With a creative system that values research over product, the company has created several highly successful installation and theater pieces including site-specific works.  Each piece uses a visceral and raw sense of physicality to create a signature atmosphere that depicts spectacular experiences with highly graphic and vivid imagery.

The Studio Series offers an opportunity for research and development in a creative residency format, providing resources of time, space and a commission. The Studio Series is a research laboratory for physical explorations and new movement investigations with a focus on process, not final performance/product. The “performances” are intended to be informal public showings to share ideas with an audience in the intimate working space of the studio. Studio Series artists are curated internally by the Artistic Director in conjunction with Programming staff and guest curators from Urban Word NYC.

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

The Body Against Body Program is an intimate and focused collection of duet works drawn from the Company’s 30 year history. Bill T. Jones returns to his roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years.

Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

Programs include 2-3 works from the Company’s repertory:

Blauvelt Mountain (A Fiction) (1980, reconstructed 2002)

One of the first duets that Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane created together, Blauvelt Mountain capitalizes on the disparities and specificities between distinct body types, often placing one person in a position of dependency. Eccentric and occasionally humorous tableaux, casual conversations, and word associations are paired with rigorous partnering sequences to suggest the mental and emotional engagement, heightened awareness, and intimacy necessary for successful partnering.

Duet x 2 (1982, reconstructed 2003)

The virtuosity of Duet x 2 is rooted in conventional modern dance vocabulary and marked by demanding athletics, surprising shapes and changing relationships. The work underlines the power and emotion that is experienced when two bodies walk, stand, support and crash through space at full throttle.

Monkey Run Road (1979, reconstructed 2011)

The earliest of the Body Against Body duets, Monkey Run Road reveals the early dance-making concerns of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane. Traces of the duo’s background in jiu-jitsu, social dancing, photography, and contact improvisation are readily seen in the piece, where repetitive, athletic phrases are punctuated by minimalist tasks and fragments of dialogue.

Valley Cottage: A Study (1980/1981, reconstructed 2011)

A new reconstruction for 2011, Valley Cottage is a duet that has not been seen since its original performances in the early ‘80s. The reconstruction draws upon the personalities and relationships of the company’s dancers in place of the original spoken text by Jones and Zane.

Duet (1995/2002)

For two dancers in perfect unison, this piece’s coolly sophisticated movement reflects Jones’s work with Trisha Brown. The precise and challenging choreography is accompanied by John Oswald’s frenetic 1975 “plunderphonic” track Power, combining rock guitars with the exhortations of an evangelist preacher. The final section is set to Daniel Bernard Roumain’s imagined conversation between titans of the mid-twentieth century avant-garde and an aged African-American mother of twelve.

Shared Distance (1982, reconstructed 2014)

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.

Just You (1993, reconstructed 2014)

Originally titled It Takes Two, Just You was 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.

Coordinated by Chase Granoff in collaboration with Brian Rogers

New York Live Arts’ Lobby Talks series presents Artist-Run Spaces, a conversation on artist-initiated and operated organizations, coordinated by Chase Granoff in collaboration with Brian Rogers. The panelists include Mathew Pokoik and Aynsley Vandenbroucke of Mount Tremper Arts; Andrew Dinwiddie and Jeff Larson of Catch; and Jill McDermid-Hokanson and Erik Hokanson of Grace Exhibition Space.

Artist-run spaces have a rich and important history in the contemporary dance and performance community. Many of the presenting organizations we are familiar with today were originally founded and operated by artists on a grassroots level. This conversation will examine how these efforts evolve into established organizations by looking at the infrastructure of some of today’s artist-run spaces. The panelists will share what their organizations aim to accomplish and how they thrive in this current economic and political moment.

Originally created by Dance Theater Workshop, Lobby Talks creates a forum for open and in-depth discourse on contemporary issues in dance and performance. Conceptual themes are investigated, challenged, and considered by an invited group of artists, critics, and theorists, and discussions are open to all who would like to participate.

Downtown dance legend Valda Setterfield adds to a multi-year, citywide examination of the Shakespearean tragedy with a deeply personal and riveting Lear of her own. Created in collaboration with John Scott, Artistic Director of Dublin-based John Scott Dance (formerly Irish Modern Dance Theatre) whose choreography falls “somewhere between Beckett, Chaplin and Monty Python” (Tanz Magazine), Scott and Setterfield deliver a work that is both deeply personal and playful. The inimitable Setterfield, noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham, plays King Lear, giving a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. Toppling the hierarchy with Goneral, Regan and Cordelia portrayed by three men, including Irish dancer Ryan O’Neill and young French dancer Kevin Coquelard, Lear is a “timely and tender exploration of aging, loss and regret that gets to the very heart of who we are” (Irish Daily Mail).

Lear was originally commissioned by Kilkenny Arts Festival, Ireland. Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.

Based in New York City, FJK Dance is a contemporary dance company founded in 2014.

              At FJK Dance, we believe in the unique fusion of culture and dance. The endless possibilities of experimenting with the fundamentals of various forms of dance, from classical ballet to ballroom, from Middle Eastern to jazz––we combine the essentials of each to create our own language. One that uses abstract body lines, forms and energy to communicate with our audience. 

            The mission of FJK Dance embodies a fundamental idea – to fuse the vocabularies of various dance forms into a language expressive of our shared capacity to create. Yet this fusion extends beyond dance forms themselves, into a totality that includes costumes, lighting, and sound. Dance forms are rendered, given to the audience through a complex visual and auditory environment that becomes dance-theater

Self-taught indy phenoms the Abunasser twins have ignited the international film festival circuit with their first feature, a rare glimpse of life in Gaza. Known for their award-winning short films and a remarkable set of cinema poster pastiches, the brothers conjure a hot summer's day in the Gaza Strip when the electricity is on. Christine’s beauty salon is heaving with female clients: a bride-to-be, a pregnant woman, a bitter divorcée, a devout woman and a pill-popping addict. But their day of leisure is disrupted when gunfire breaks out across the street. A gangland family has stolen the lioness from Gaza’s only zoo, and Hamas has decided it’s time to settle old scores. Stuck in the salon, with the prospect of death drawing ever nearer, the women start to unravel. How will the day end? Will they lose their lives for the sake of “liberating the lioness”?

Clear & Sweet is a new multi­-disciplinary performance incorporating dance, vocals and visuals resulting from an inquiry into Southern Baptist Sacred Harp Singing and Scofield’s complicated connection to her Southern roots.

Sacred Harp Singing is a form of spiritual a cappella choral singing founded in Southern Baptist churches and now practiced in secular groups. The strikingly raw singing – it only uses four notes and can be sung by anyone – caught Zoe’s attention while on a trip home to Georgia and has become a powerful lens for exploring the complexities of growing up in the South. Recognizing commonalities between Sacred Harp Singing and the company's work – a desire to bring about redemption through physical exertion and to allow for personal experiences of worship in the company of others – we will bring these unexpected synchronicities to the stage.

The haunting films of Kamal Aljafari mix documentary, fiction and personal memoir to render complex portaits. Pointedly political, Aljafari’s films wonderfully embed their ideology into a cinematic poetry graced by light humor.

Recollection (2015, 70 minutes, Palestine/Germany) 
The Israeli and American features shot in the town of Jaffa from the 60s to the 90s are the basis for the story of a dream. All protagonists are removed from the original footage, leaving an empty setting formed by the town. Thus, the impossible is made possible from the “I” perspective, namely filming the past and compiling a picture album made of memories. 

Visit Iraq (2003, 26 minutes, Palestine/Germany)
A humorous look at the rumors surrounding an Iraqi Airways agency in Geneva, which has remained mysteriously abandoned since 1990.

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