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.

Ford Foundation Live Gallery at New York live Arts

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

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

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

Selfie, 2013
Gwen Welliver
Mixed-media "selfies"

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

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

Inaugural Resident Comissioned Artist World Premiere

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

World Premiere

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

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

World Premiere

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

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

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

Co-presented with PS122's Coil Festival

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

World Premiere

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

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

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

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

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

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

Program A includes:

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

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

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

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

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

Programs include nudity

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

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

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

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

Cléo from 5 to 7
Film Screening

3pm
$5 Advance/ $7 At Door

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

George Mason University
Fairfax, Virginia
Spring 2012

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A collaborative performance, residency, and research project of the Bill T. Jones Arnie/Zane Dance Company, premiered at the University of Virginia in November 2008.

I live with the uneasy feeling that I have been shaped in part as a result of something that was taken from us as a nation. The cynicism and alienation that I struggle with is the result of many incomprehensible factors. Perhaps one of the most important - though remote - might well be the betrayal of Abraham Lincoln's legacy. --Bill T. Jones

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company visits select cities across the country to ask: "Had Lincoln lived, what would we be like today?" During each week-long residency the Company and collaborators host lecture/demonstrations, panel discussions, and masterclasses exploring the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Through workshops, a diverse group of 100 local community members and musicians create and perform a site-specific event with movement, text, and music drawn from the participants' own feelings of a historical figure "hiding in plain sight."

After Ghostcatching is a stereoscopic version of a work created from a collaboration between Bill T. Jones and OpenEnded Group. Jones's distinctive movements are transformed into a three-dimensional moving drawing through the use of motion-capture technology. Abstract lines are created by the fading traces of Jones's body while the sound of Jones's rhythmic humming and breathing punctuate his gestures. This tenth anniversary re-working of the original edition takes advantage of the evolution of 3-D and projection technology to create an enhanced version of Ghostcatching in which art, dance, and technology are seamlessly integrated.

Celebrated as a masterful and magnetic soloist, Bill T. Jones, building on the success of his last solo work, The Breathing Show (1999), creates an eclectic new evening-length production: As I Was Saying… Comprised from three different works, it typifies Jones' characteristic blend of wit and poignancy. The evening is built on modularity that allows Jones to recombine various dances such as:

With the Good Lord: A response to "The Nazz," a recorded nightclub performance by the legendary Lord Buckley - a 1950's performance jazz artist whose exuberant rhyming style is viewed by many as an influential precursor to today's rappers. Through his Beat-era jargon, punctuated with sound effects and asides, Jones' movement reflects Lord Buckley's extravagant twists and hyper hip rhythms of the English language.

22: In this work, Jones reshapes his 1983 whimsical talking solo, 21, into a new work. The outcome of an experimental fine arts and engineering project at Arizona State University's Institute for Studies in the Arts, this piece was created with collaborators Paul Kaiser, Shelley Eshkar, engineer Marc Downie, set and lighting designer Robert Wierzel, and accompanied live on electric violin by Daniel Bernard Roumain.

Chaconne: The past and memory also play a large role in Jones's present. Chaconne is framed around spoken text and the music of Bach's haunting D-Minor Partita for Solo Violin played live by celebrated musician Nurit Pacht or a local violinist. "Jones' musicality shines through his muscular choreography in a kinetic affirmation of the power of art." - Camille Lefevre, Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 4, 2005

"If we insist on telling the same stories again and again... we will become that." -- Bill T. Jones

In Another Evening: I Bow Down, Bill T. Jones reveals how personal stories and historical events converge, in an examination of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of disaster. Known for taking risks on stage, Bill T. Jones continues to push the boundaries of modern dance through unconventional collaborations in the latest incarnation of his evolving Another Evening series. Featuring live music by Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and the uncompromising sound of the young Bronx-based hardcore band Regain The Heart Condemned, Jones' company erupts from the stage like an unstoppable force of nature.

Today, civil unrest, religious conflict, and natural disaster touch almost everyone, and increasingly the youth of the world face uncertain futures and confusing messages from all sides. Acknowledging the brutally honest quality of youth culture, Jones suggests that disaster can be a powerfully redemptive force. "If disaster if the lifeblood of change, why haven't the changes been made?" intones guest actor Andrea Smith, reminding us that rationality is most often not the guidepost of history.

In Another Evening: I Bow Down, Jones' powerfully skilled dancers move with individualistic purpose and style, while at the same time displaying the ability to dance together in beautifully synchronized unity. As the performance unfolds on stage, the actions of choreographer and company become stories in themselves, as history, life, and art merge into a unified experience. Weaving personal stories together with mythical and historical events reminds us that even if all disasters could be prevented, we would still have our own mortality to face. Yet, while life itself may be temporal, Bill T. Jones asserts through his work that ideas themselves have a life of their own that transcend individual mortality.

Jones' diverse company, an embodiment of the world he wants to live in, sweeps through time and space in the minimalist, dreamlike landscape created by set designer Bjorn G. Amelan and lighting designer Robert Wierzel. Very much in the spirit of late co-founder Arnie Zane, this piece is a inspired by the bold works Jones and Zane began creating over 20 years ago. Their faith in the transformative power of dance - despite the adversity of ignorance, disasters, and personal tragedies that defy rationality - is a testament to the redemptive power of art.

World Premiere

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.

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.

Story/Time is made possible with lead support from the Company's commissioning program, "Partners in Creation," which includes the following donors: the Argosy Foundation, Abigail Congdon and Joe Azrack, Anne Delaney, Eleanor Friedman, Barbara and Eric Dobkin, Sandra and Gerald Eskin, Ruth and Stephen Hendel, Ellen Poss, Jane Bovingdon Semel and Terry Semel.

Funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project (NDP), with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Boeing Company Charitable Trust.

"I live with the uneasy feeling that society has shaped me as a result of something that was stolen from us when Abraham Lincoln was killed. The cynicism and alienation that I feel in my head and heart arose because of this strange turn of destiny."--Bill T. Jones

Continuing this tradition of challenging, thought provoking work, Mr. Jones has created a new evening-length work about Abraham Lincoln Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray, which premiered at the Ravinia Festival and is now on tour. Commissioned by the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray has found Mr. Jones "leading with his own heart," seeking a way to articulate if not reconcile the view of Lincoln he had as a young boy growing up during the civil rights struggle and as a mid-life liberal artist who "has very few heroes." The most ambitious project in the Company's history, Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray investigates the myriad meanings of Lincoln, rejecting accepted truth in favor of challenging (and celebrating) the lasting contributions of this great man. This dance theatre work investigates a handful of key moments from his remarkable life, allowing song and memory to transport the audience to an emotional and intellectual space beyond the boundaries of space and time. By envisioning the America that might have been had Lincoln completed the Reconstruction, Mr. Jones exposes the great distance between what is and what could have been.

In the hands of choreographer Bill T. Jones, dance becomes an extraordinary tool for probing life's big questions and journeying toward understanding. In this new evening-length work, Blind Date explores patriotism, honor, sacrifice, and service to a cause larger than oneself-values all but lost in our modern world. Jones's technically stunning 10-member company performs in a sensory landscape of primary colors, video imagery, and musical influences from around the world. As if on a "blind date," wisdom and eloquence meet dumbed-down fundamentalism in this explosive meditation on opposing forces and contrasting beliefs.

Originally intended to be a documentary of the Company today, Blind Date contains personal stories from the international cast, gestural dance phrases eerily reminiscent of a military boot camp, and all of the complex artistry that Bill T. Jones is known for. Bjorn Amelan has designed an evocative and flexible environment of variously sized screens that act as an ever-changing landscape. On these screens are projections designed by video artist Peter Nigrini that include text in multiple languages, people, places, and things that interact with and enrich the live performance. Music Director/Composer Daniel Bernard Roumain and his collaborators provide a sound score that serves a similar purpose, ranging from Bach to Otis Redding to the Mexican national anthem. Bill T. Jones and his dancers are joined by actor Andrea Smith, and in certain venues, live accompaniment. The result is a multi-layered dance theater experience that is "at once moving, sexy, funny, thoughtful, and sad." - John Rockwell, The New York Times

Between Us offers entry into rarely available pieces from the company's repertory created over a decade-long span beginning in the late '80s. The program focuses on simple, beautiful dances-many duets-that continue to be relevant and intriguing portraits of the bond between two people. Restaged in many cases for the first time, these dances contrast the expansive theatrical works the company is known for.

This focused evening provides a satisfying look at the core of the Jones/Zane style: dancers with individual personalities, body types, and backgrounds; partnering that is unconventional and unexpected; and a choreographic palette that draws from classical ballet, postmodern abstraction, and arrangements of gesture and shape influenced by film and photography. The evening offers notable musical moments as well: studded with popular and moving works that actuate the choreography, songs shape the evening with equal finesse.

The humanity and peril implicit in the most essential yet complex of relationships-the partnership-is the focus of this program. An evening of movement and music surveying Jones and Zane's exceptional body of work, Between Us will satisfy those looking for the beauty of emotionally and intellectually engaging dance.

Moved by the story of Olivier Messiaen’s survival of WWII and the legendary creation of the Quartet for the End of Time during Messiaen’s imprisonment in a Nazi war camp, Trajal Harrell brings us his quartet of the same name. Reframed as a “hoochie-koochie” show of moving bodies, film, video, photography, sound, and architecture, this work asks, “is it possible to present sincerity in today’s ironic culture?”.

Spence is currently collaborating with sound artist Tei Blow on work that examines the influences of environment on a person and how one relates to a particular space or place in which they find themselves. Spence aims to reveal a natural narrative inherent in the relationships between person, movement and space. A visual representation of Spence’s process, including choreographic sketches and notes, will be on display in a Live Arts studio.

During her creative residency, Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai is developing her next work, Formosa.

Formosa finds Tsai exploring western ideals of beauty, globalization and labor through the lens of Barbie doll manufacturing in her ancestral homeland of Taiwan. Formosaderives its name from the Portuguese “Ilha Formosa,” meaning beautiful island, coined by sailors in 1566 after spotting the island of Taiwan. In Formosa, Tsai raises questions about global capital, beauty, exploitation, and choice through poetic narrative and counter-narrative contrasting the experience of Taiwanese factory workers with the material creation of Barbie – the Western icon of beauty. She further investigates how the global economy leads women of color to strive for these same standards of Western beauty through skin lightening, eyelid surgery, jawbone shaving andother forms of self-mutilation. Collaborators include Jesse Y. Jou (Director), Amissa Miller (Dramaturg), Jessica Chen (Choreographer), and Chie Morita (Producer).

Vidich will show the substance of his current process, which involves experiential research with psychedelic drugs, the procedural narrative of flying airplanes, and the social practice of BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadomasochism). In accessing these seemingly disparate activities, Vidich feeds an intuitive drive toward a totalizing art-practice. Inherent in these forms of risk-play is the condition of submitting to a power greater than oneself.

Pursuing his lifelong fascination with human-animal relationships, Vidich lays out an improvised "first date" scenario in which he plays the part of a wimpy dog. He surrenders control of his instrument to the interrogative forces of a Russian dominatrix, Anya Stern, who is cast as the performer's ego. She tests him, corrects him, and exposes his threshold for pain and exhaustion. Fluidly navigating between the fictive plane of negotiated consent and the stark reality of an electric cattle prod, Vidich attempts to externalize the ecstatic process of boundary dissolution through humiliation and the confrontation of fears.

Created in 2005 by Dance Theater Workshop and continued by New York Live Arts, the Studio Series is a research laboratory for physical explorations and new movement investigations with a focus on creative process. Each Studio Series artist receives a commission and 100 hours of creative residency time and is invited to conduct two informal showings. These in-process showings create a framework for the artist to share ideas with an audience in the intimate working space of the studio. Studio Series artists are curated by Artistic Director Carla Peterson in conjunction with New York Live Arts programming staff and guest curators from Urban Word NYC. This year’s Studio Series artists are Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai, Arturo Vidich, Antonio Ramos, Sidra Bell, devynn emory, Stacy Spence, Paige Martin, RoseAnne Spradlin, Vanessa Justice, Keely Garfield, Joanna Kotze, and Eleanor Smith.

Inspired by the work of New York City-based photographer Sol Aramendi and “The Art of Toreo” or bullfighting, Ramos created EN LA ARENA NO TODO ES ROSADO/IN THE ARENA NOT EVERYTHING IS PINK.  

In this work-in-process, Ramos explores themes of sexuality and the disappointments of queer dating after the sudden end of a 13-year relationship. The work shows the everyday struggles of new beginnings. Bullfighting, with its paradox of beauty and cruelty, pits the Toreo (bullfighter) against the brave but suffering bull. Like this provocation, the work shows how we fight for survival in a similar battle to the death. This struggle motivates the emotional and physical content of the work.

This work will be further developed with, among other things, rituals from the Santeria interwoven into the piece for presentation at The Young Roots Performance Series at Hostos Center for the Arts and Culture on May 4, 2012 with a post-performance discussion moderated by NY Live Arts Artistic Director Carla Peterson. Funded by the Rockefeller Foudnation NYC Cultural Innovation Fund 2010-12, this series showcases emerging artists experimenting with the artistic roots of Afro-Latino traditions to create new branches that reach into the future. theyoungrootsperformanceseries.blogspot.com.
 
Currently Ramos is also in discussion with El Museo del Barrio to develop elements of this work in collaboration with director Charles Rice-Gonzalez for presentation in 2012-13.
 
Ramos deeply identified with two works by Aramendi on display at El Museo del Barrio’s The (S) Files 2011 exhibition. Aramendi's photographs, "Bailando Conmigo" ("Dancing with myself"), shows a woman ironing records by hand as they melt under her touch. Another work, “El Amor Duele” ("Love Hurts"), depicts a bride who hangs her heart on a coat rack. These works motivated Ramos to examine real life, quotidian events such as eating, having sex, or taking pills in a surreal way.

"A richly textured and layered theatrical adventure" - The New York Times

How do we human beings live together? How do we co-exist with others who may be close to us, yet so very different from ourselves? How do we live with those not only in our own household, but in our neighborhood, our city, our country and our ever-fracturing planet?

 

In A Quarreling Pair, Bill T. Jones explores the dualities between any two people and the struggle to co-habitate and to live together against all odds. 
 
The work is in part inspired by A Quarreling Pair, by playwright and mnovelist Jane Bowles.  The play, written for two puppets, is an absurdist meditation on the relationship of two middle-aged sisters, Harriet and Rhoda, who sit in separate rooms and quarrel endlessly about trivial tasks, the futility of life, and their inextricable bond. Bill T. Jones chose this work as inspiration because "This short but powerful play has been on my mind for nearly 20 years as I have ruminated on the idea of partnering, onstage and off." 
 
To Mr. Jones the play also suggests the world of entertainment, with its strange poetry and curious songs. A Quarreling Pair  is an opportunity to go deeper into what makes each of us performers. 
 
"We want to clown, sing, dance. We want to explore the spirit of vaudeville, even as we keep our eye firmly on the serious dance aesthetic that has shaped the Company." -Bill T. Jones

Maya Ciarrocchi has created a disorienting experience of urban proportions through her three channel video installation, Wasteland. Influenced by T.S. Elliot’s epic poem and using classic shots of New York City icons, including views of Times Square, the Hudson River, and the beach, Maya creates inverted images where water becomes sky, cityscapes become cloud formations, and pedestrians on the beach become suspended behemoths.

"It is a beastly ballet, both harrowing and gorgeous." - The Stranger

the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t combines Zoe Scofield’s physical distortion of classical technique with Juniper Shuey’s distilled visual design to create a heightened sense of reality. Supported by Morgan Henderson’s hypnotic original score with live sound design by Kamran Sadeghi, lighting by Jessica Trundy, and a cast including local dancers from Barnard College, the devil… creates a world shaped by accumulating, external forces as the company delves into a haunting physical, sonic and visual space shaped by brutality and grace.

Garfield’s works are meticulously organized and immediately disrupted. She crafts ritualistic and askew tales characterized by aching and ironic invention. Her “mini-epics” are like tumbling stones in an edgy, thrilling stream of consciousness where religion, politics, domestic life and sexuality are playfully articulated and warped. In her Studio Series showings, Garfield will show excerpts from a work-in-process titled Buzz Kill set to premiere in 2013.
 
In the 9th Century BC it was written in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishard, “This earth is the honey of all beings, and all beings are the honey of this earth”. The poet Virgil mused that bees must still possess a “portion of the divine mind” since the ancients believed them to be unchanged since the Garden of Eden. Perhaps sent by the gods to show us how to live in harmony and accord, bees are currently facing the greatest threat to their existence as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) decimates their broods. Since honeybees are the primary pollinators of many fruits, vegetables, flowers and plants, humans are also facing environmental and ethical challenges around the wide use of pesticides and the consequences of our disregard for the other life forms that we share this planet with. Buzz Kill forages links between the waggle and round dances of the honeybees, their industrious, cooperative societies, the honeyed results of their toil and the sting of breakdown in our own organizing principles.    
 
Hailed as an artist working “at the height of her powers” (New York Times), Garfield now sheds her recent over-the-top works, adopting a plainer approach, a pared-down inventory and a new cast of characters. Embracing the optimism of empty space, Garfield presents scenes polished to reveal their essential crystalline nature, and redefines herself for the time being. Joining Garfield is a superb cast of movement mediators including Maggie Bennett, Molly Lieber, Saúl Ulerio, as well as long-time collaborator Brandin Steffensen.

For the Studio Series, Justice is inspired by vibration and the conductivity of the tissues of the body. She explores the everyday experience of sensory impressions combined with thoughts, emotions, and energy to collectively constitute the contents of consciousness. She sets up a framework for internal and external sources of movement to coexist, and explores the expressive potential of performance in close proximity to the audience. Performers include Talya Epstein, Lily Ockwell, Kendra Portier, Devika Wickremesinghe, and contemporary artist Janine Antoni. There will also be a showing of an interactive video installation created in collaboration with Rachel Boggia.

Martin’s current process is an effort to uncover and understand the path towards authenticity in performance. Her investigation involves working with limitations such as stillness and containment and exploring the boundaries between the physical and the non-physical to examine levels of authenticity when one person is performing for another.

Kotze aims to rigorously explore the potential of the body in movement, challenging what might be habitual or expected. Her work-in-process titled it happened it had happened it is happening it will happen confronts the seductiveness of classifying, ordering, structuring, while attempting to hold on to the character of the unnameable, vulnerable, imaginable. Kotze, who holds a degree in architecture, examines the natural disorder of structured orders. Performers Stuart Singer and Netta Yerushalmy will join her for her Studio Series showings.

Bessie Award winning (2010), Comme Toujours Here I Stand re-invents Agnes Varda's classic New Wave film, CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 for the stage. Shot in Paris in 1961, the film tracks the early evening hours in the life of a marginally talented pop singer as she waits to hear if she has terminal cancer. The Company uses 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. The piece 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.

The reconstruction of Comme Toujours Here I Stand is supported by New York Live Arts’ DTW Commissioning Fund and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts

Fort Blossom revisited (2000/2012), which premiered at Bryn Mawr College in February, is a personal look at the body (alternately medical, eroticized and/or aestheticized).  Described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “philosophically poetic and exploratory,” the work invites audiences to examine contemporary notions of how we experience the body as both owners and spectators. With choreography and visual design by “Bessie” Award-winner John Jasperse, the original Fort Blossom premiered in 2000 at The Kitchen with Jasperse and performers Miguel Gutierrez, Parker Lutz and Juliette Mapp. The revisited and expanded version features performers Ben Asriel, Lindsay Clark, Erika Hand and Burr Johnson. In returning to this work, Jasperse has questioned how his approach to the material has shifted over time, how original intentions could be manifest with increased potency, and how changes that have occurred within his own body affect his frame of reference, understanding, and desires for expression within the work. The central goal of reigniting a certain tough freshness of the original gesture of the work has guided the process, which Jasperse has described as an unabashed utopian desire for a community of difference in togetherness that exists in a space beyond shame.

While not composed for this work, the music for Fort Blossom revisited (2000/2012) is drawn from pre-existing commercially released recordings by Ryoji Ikeda and is used with the gracious permission of the composer. Original Lighting Design is by Stan Pressner. Costume construction of the women’s dresses is by Deanna Berg.

Ambient Cowboy is lonely and joyous, dark and funny, violent and loving. Seeded by a visit to Philip Johnson's Glass House - with its brilliantly audacious imposition of serene, spare modernity on the abundant, looming wilderness -Ambient Cowboy explores this fertile landscape of contrasting elements, through dance, drama, sound, and setting. Ambient Cowboy will be performed by Lawrence Cassella, Molly Poerstel, Eleanor Smith, and Ivy Baldwin, with sound design by Justin Jones, set design by Anna Schuleit, and lighting design by Chloë Z. Brown.

Ambient Cowboy is commissioned by New York Live Arts’ DTW Commissioning Fund and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation. It was developed, in part, at a creative residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center through a partnership with New York Live Arts, with support from the New York State DanceForce with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts Dance Program.

Performances at New York Live Arts

Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church comes in fives sizes: Extra Small (XS) to Extra Large (XL). Following the sublime (S), the rare beauty of (XS), and the spectacular (M)imosa, the Antigone Sr./(L) presents an all-male contemporary dance version of Sophocles’s Greek tragic drama, Antigone, performed by Rob Fordeyn, Trajal Harrell, Thibault Lac, Stephen Thompson, Ondrej Vidlar. All five sizes share the proposition: What would have happened in 1963 if someone from the Voguing ball scene in Harlem had come downtown to perform alongside the early postmodernists at Judson Church? Rather than illustrating a historical fiction, these new works transplant this proposition into a contemporary context. What we experience was neither possible at The Balls nor at Judson, but, here and now, a third possibility is created.

Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (L) is commissioned by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Gernerous funding has also been provided by The Jerome Foundation, The Alfred Meyer Foundation, and The MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, with additional support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. 

Co-Production: New York Live Arts, CNDC Angers, and CCN Belfort. Residency Support provided by WpZimmer - Antwerp, Workspace Brussels, Pact Zollverein - Essen, and Dansen Hus - Stockholm.

Pre-Show Talk Apr 4 at 6:30pm with Jeremy Barker
Post-Show Talk Apr 6 with Brian Rogers

An experiment in permeability and containment, aggression and catharsis, A Crack in Everything seeks to expand and examine the liminal space between action-reaction, cause-effect, and before-after. The installation and performance are meditations on moments that divide people’s lives into these linear experiences of time and how our memory creates its own separate physical life, space and time.

This performance was funded in part by the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts. NDP is supported by lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, with additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Community Connections Fund of the MetLife Foundation, and the Boeing Company Charitable Trust.

zoe | juniper are recipients of an Artist Trust Fellowship and GAP grant and received a National Dance Project Production Grant  (2009-2010), NPN Creation Fund and Trust for Mutual Understanding and Dance Theater Workshop Suitcase Fund Grant.  A Crack In Everything (ACIE) was developed and performed in process at Trafo House of Contemporary Art (Budapest), Arts Center and The Body Festival (New Zealand), Bates Dance Festival, Open Flight Studio (Seattle), the MacDowell Colony, Florian Theater Creation Residency, Budapest Hungry, SOFA / Arts Center Gallery, Christchurch, New Zealand, and received 4Culture Sustained Support. Portions of ACIE were developed in the Herald Clurman Center in Movement and Dance Theater Artist-in-Residence program (MAD-AIR) at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.  A Crack in Everything was commissioned in part through a Creative Development Residency at Jacob's Pillow and co-commissioned by On the Boards. and was developed through the Dance Production Program at On the Boards in conjunction with the Mellon Foundation.

A Crack in Everything is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by the Bates Dance Festival in partnership with Jacob’s Pillow, On the Boards, New York Live Arts, Diverseworks, PICA and NPN.

A Crack in Everything is funded in part by the Princess Grace Foundation.

Pre-Show Talk Mar 24 at 6:30pm with Maura Keefe
Post-Show Talk Mar 30 with Annie B Parson

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.

Restless Eye is commissioned by New York Live Arts’ DTW Commissioning Fund and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation.

Restless Eye was developed, in part, during a creative residency at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography at The Florida State University in partnership with New York Live Arts and with support from and National Endowment for the Arts.

Made possible, in part, with a 2011 Princess Grace Works in Progress Residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center

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 and includes four pieces: INTRODUCTION, a solo performed by Wilson; the duet, a newly choreographed duet that recycles movement from Wilson’s past duet works; Big BRICK: a man’s piece, a quartet for four men; and a vocal suite.

The reconstruction of theRevisitation is supported by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Thank you to all of our generous supporters who joined us for an amazing Spring BASH honoring Elizabeth Streb and Juliana F. May. We danced the night away raising funds to support the Fresh Tracks Performance & Residency Program, the Live Arts residency program for emerging choreographers. Begun by Dance Theater Workshop in 1965, Fresh Tracks has helped launch the careers of more than 500 choreographers, including Bill T. Jones, Elizabeth Streb and Meredith Monk. Contributions to the 2012 Spring BASH allow us to provide artists with an unparalleled level of support, providing the time, space and materials to develop new innovations in movement-based art.

CONVERSATION  WITH BOXING GLOVES BETWEEN CHAMECKI AND LERNER, TAKE 2
Ford Foundation Live Gallery Wall

CONVERSATION  WITH BOXING GLOVES BETWEEN CHAMECKI AND LERNER, TAKE 2, originally commissioned by PERFORMA 09 as a short film, will be adapted as a diptych for the New York Live Arts Ford Foundation Live Gallery Wall. The work is a reinterpretation of a segment from the 1916 futuristic film, VITA FUTURISTA, which explores futurist ideas like simultaneity, dynamics and double exposure. By layering images of Andrea Lerner and Rosane Chamecki boxing became a perfect metaphor for their 20 year collaboration. Sometimes they are one, sometimes two but most of the times they are a third identity: a striking fusion of both - Chamecki and Lerner.

THE COLLECTION
New York Live Arts Elevator

(World Premiere) Using movement vocabulary that is entirely appropriated from paintings, sculptures and photographs of “nudes” throughout art history THE COLLECTION moves as a sliding landscape of classical and contemporary depictions of the human form. To be naked is to be oneself, to be nude is to be seen naked by others, implying an awareness of being seen. Featuring Levi Gonzales and Hristoula Harakas, viewers are aware of the subtleties within the nude forms, some natural and unapologetic about their nakedness and others representational as if in view of a spectator.

Post-Show Talk Mar 9 with Yasuko Yokoshi

Jodi Melnick is an internationally acclaimed performer and two-time New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winner whose work is meticulously designed, flooded with imagery, and transformed by the phenomenon of dancing.  Her newest work, Solo, Deluxe Version, features performances by Melnick, Jon Kinzel, Hristoula Harakas and Stuart Shugg; original music by Steven Reker and his band, People GetReady (Luke Fasano, James Rickman and Jen Goma);  and lighting by Joe Levasseur.  The evening also includes the world premiere of One of Sixty Five Thousand Gestures, a solo choreographed collaboratively with Trisha Brown - a creative conversation that explores their mutual interest in the crafting of movement, the slippage from casual to formal and back again. One of Sixty Five Thousand Gestures features an original score by Hahn Rowe.

Solo, Deluxe Version is commissioned by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation.

Solo, Deluxe Version is funded, in part, by The Jerome Robbins New Essential Works Grant (2010-2011).

Pre-Show Talk Feb 15 at 6:30pm with Cassie Maude Peterson

Vanessa Anspaugh questions how we maintain or reinforce difference between ”the garden and the world,” between your land and my land, between human and animal or Self and Other? Armed Guard Garden  looks to the queer body as a site of resistance and to current “occupations” as a way of imagining and critiquing notions of paradise  and “resting place.” The work features performers Aretha Aoki, Niall Noel Jones, Molly Leiber, Lydia Okrent, and Mary Read; Dramaturge Susan Mar Landau; Costume Design by Emily Roysdon; Lighting Design by Vincent Vigilante; Sound Design by Ryan MacDonald; Conceptual Collaborator Cassie Maude Peterson.
 
Jen Rosenblit harnesses multiplicity and absurdity as a constant point of departure and performative culture. Working with friend, performer, and long-term collaborator Addys Gonzalez, Rosenblit looks closely at the nature of their duet body, listening to a structure that can support failure, honor patronage and deem even the unworthy as righteous.  In Mouth finds these two bodies fallen, devastated and roaming and may or may not be about gay marriage.

Armed Guard Garden and In Mouth are commissioned by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and are made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation

“Strikingly composed . . . a technically assured performance by Will Bond. A portrait of one ‘genius’ taking on another. . . Bond has balletic precision.” – The New York Times

Returning for its third New York City Season, SITI Company is proud to begin its presenting partnership with the newly formed New York Live Arts with its Obie Award-winning Bob. Bob is a solo show that revolves around the life and times of an internationally known avant-garde theater director. Acclaimed as a genius, he rides the fast track of the ever-shrinking global art scene. He uses his own history and everyone around him as fodder for his grandiose staged spectacles. Through Bob, you’ll experience a creative crisis in the making and see where American pop culture and high culture collide. Bob is not meant to be a realistic portrait of Robert Wilson the man, rather a dip into an engaging perspective about family, art, and American Culture.
 
Bob was commissioned by the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University.  Bob was developed in association with Theatre Archa, Prague, Czech Republic.

Pre-Show Talk Jan 12 at 6:30pm, Post-Show Talk Jan 13

BLESSED is a solo created by American, Brussels-based choreographer Meg Stuart  for the Portuguese choreographer and dancer Francisco Camacho. BLESSED comforts with the sensitive power of the aesthetics of destruction. In BLESSED, basic elements such as rain, cardboard and the human body form the basis for a defense against total ruin and final destiny. A work of great somberness and beauty focused on the unrelenting struggle for life.

BLESSED is presented in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut.

Nut/Cracked is a comic/subversive, neo-vaudeville version of The Nutcracker. Its 22 sections begin with a mix of popular, jazz and novelty versions of the score and progress to the traditional orchestral suite. A journey into innocence through sustained fantasy, Nut/Cracked incorporates an enterprising mix of tap, ballet, contemporary, disco and even toe tap. 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.

Pre-Show Talk Dec 13 at 6pm

Originally created and performed in 1992 at Performance Space 122 and reconstructed in 1995 at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, The Shining is a dance-installation work full of thrill and fearful anxiety. It speaks of experiences at once sought and avoided – how do we hide from fear, play with thrills and terrors? How do those emotions excluded from consciousness play with us? This second reconstruction features original cast members Scott Heron, Annie Iobst, and Mike Iveson with new cast members Yve Laris Cohen, Jen Rosenblit, Aki Sasamoto, Osmani Tellez, Arturo Vidich, and Emily Wexler, and special guest appearances from Hapi Phace, Stinkmetal and Gina Varla Vetro.

The reconstruction of The Shining is supported by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund" and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.

The acclaimed Martha@... The 1963 Interview returns for encore performances after a sold-out run last season. The production is a metatheatrical recreation of the legendary 92nd Street Y interview with Martha Graham and dance critic Walter Terry. Based on the recently discovered audio recording, the interview reveals Graham’s iconic persona with intimate reflections on her unparalleled life and career. Martha@... The 1963 Interview features Richard Move as Graham, Tony Award-nominated actress/playwright Lisa Kron as Terry and Move’s illustrious, longtime collaborators, Graham Company Principal dancer Katherine Crockett and former Graham Company member Catherine Cabeen, with a new-media scenic design by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo.

Martha@...The 1963 Interview was originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop's Commissioning and Creative Residency Program with the support of donors to The Fund for Continuing Innovation. The remount of this work is supported by New York Live Arts’ DTW Commissioning Fund and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Thank-you Bar is a new performance/installation of dance, live music, storytelling and visual image created and performed by Alaska-born and Minneapolis-based choreographer Emily Johnson with composers and musicians James Everest and Joel Pickard of the music duo BLACKFISH. The work finds Johnson considering the question, “What is a true home?” Drawing from her Yup’ik heritage, Johnson – an artist whose works often deal with themes of identity, community and cultural responsibility – sets out in The Thank-you Bar to connect ideas of displacement, longing and language to history, architecture and igloo-myth. THIS IS DISPLACEMENT, a companion exhibit curated by Johnson featuring works by 46 visual artists from 19 tribal nations, will be on display as a slideshow on the Ford Foundation Live Gallery Wall. For more information: thisisdisplacement.com.

The presentation of The Thank-You Bar was made possible by the MetLife Community Connections Fund of the National Dance Project, a program administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts. Major support for the National Dance Project is also provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from the Ford Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival

Post-Show Talk Oct 14

What can authorities expect from a work of art? What are the marks left by political history on the body? In this new work, French-Algerian maker and performer Rachid Ouramdane with composer instrumentalist Jean-Baptiste Julien, explores our notions of nationhood and identity by examining the relationship between the body and power.

Crossing the Line, the annual fall festival of the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), is conceived as a platform to present vibrant new works by a diverse range of significant transdisciplinary artists working on both sides of the Atlantic. It is initiated and produced by FIAF in partnership with leading New York cultural institutions.

Rachid Ouramdane's performance is funded in part by FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance, a program of the National Dance Project/New England Foundation for the Arts and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, with lead funding from Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the French American Cultural Exchange and the Florence Gould Foundation.

Additional support for the presentation of World Fair was provided by French American Cultural Exchange (FACE).

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival

Pre-Show Talk Oct 11 at 6:30pm with Carla Peterson, Simon Dove, and Lili Chopra
Post-Show Talk Oct 12 with Rachid Ouramdane and Larry Siems

Rachid Ouramdane with his company of performers explores the effects of a violent past on people’s bodies and minds in this sublime and poetic new work. Based on extensive conversations with survivors of torture, Rachid Ouramdane portrays this violence as a withdrawal from humanity. Rachid Ouramdane probes the limitations of representing barbarity and explores how the body can transform itself in the extremes of endurance. He shares portraits of those who have experienced the unimaginable so that their suffering is not forgotten, and highlights the repeated use of violence at a time when torture appears to be tolerated and even used legitimately on the global stage. Ordinary Witnesses is a moving testimony to the extraordinary power of the human spirit.

Post Show Talk:
"What is the nature of the gap between personal experience and official history?" Rachid Ouramdane writes in his artist's notes for "Ordinary Witnesses." "What can dance do that history books can't?" Following the performance on October 12, Ouramdane joins Larry Siems for a conversation about art, activism, and history. Siems is the Director of Freedom to Write and International Programs at PEN American Center, which is co-producing the "Reckoning With Torture" national film project with director Doug Liman and the ACLU (the American Civil Liberties Union); and the author of the forthcoming The Torture Report: What the Documents Say about America's Post-9/11 Torture Program. Together, they will explore the role the arts can play in confronting the legacies of torture.

Pre-Show Talk Wed, Oct 5 at 6:30pm with Annie-B Pason and Carla Peterson

Shifting the focus from the choreographer to the dancer, Dancer Crush lauds the maverick talents of the contemporary down-town dance artist. For one week, New York Live Arts will spotlight some of downtown’s most beloved and revered dancers as they demonstrate what is privileged in contemporary dance while offering a different or alternative definition of virtuosity. From these performers’ perspectives on how they perform movement, what it means to perform movement, and their focus on the interpretation of material, this program will show us the remarkable stylistic powers of the New York City dancer.

Featuring Performances from:
Steven Reker and People Get Ready
Arturo Vidich
Ishmael Houston-Jones
Jodi Melnick
Brandi Norton
Heather Olson
Holley Farmer
Leah Cox
David Neumann


Material performed from the 1970’s to the present includes excerpts, complete works, and improvised scores by choreographers Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown, Bill T. Jones, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Yvonne Meier, David Neumann, Jodi Melnick, Steven Reker and People Get Ready, and Tere O’Connor.

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Body Against Body is made possible with support from the Company’s commissioning program, “Partners in Creation,” which includes the following donors:  the Argosy Foundation, Abigail Congdon and Joe Azrack, Anne Delaney, Eleanor Friedman, Barbara and Eric Dobkin, Sandra and Gerald Eskin, Ruth and Stephen Hendel, Ellen Poss, Jane Bovington Semel and Terry Semel and Carol H.

Performance artist John Kelly remounts his Bessie Award winning Find My Way Home, based on the ancient Greek Myth of Orpheus & Eurydice. Originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop in 1988 (revised in 1998) and set in the Great Depression, Find My Way Home recasts Orpheus as a famous 30’s radio crooner who makes a pact with the gods and descends into hell to bring Eurydice back to life. Created during the height of the AIDS epidemic, Find My Way Home deconstructs genres of opera, period dance, and cinematic acting, and includes scenes and arias from Gluck’s baroque opera Orfeo Ed Eurydice, (sung in Kelly’s countertenor voice), together with film sequences, set and costume design, and a company of 11 singers and dancers.

Find My Way Home was originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop in 1988. The reconstruction of this work is supported by New York Live Arts’ "DTW Commissioning Fund," and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.

“Castro specializes in work that feels more like a personal encounter than a performance, creating environments that don’t allow audience members the option of viewing from a safe distance.” - Michelle Vellucci, Flavorwire

Paradis unfolds at twilight in two locations within the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: the dramatic Desert House in the Steinhardt Conservatory, and the famed Cherry Esplanade. Inspired by the final section of Jean-Luc Godard’s 2004 film, Notre Musique, by the same name, Paradis—Paradis continues Castro’s exploration of the space between the performer and audience member. A stark and fragile solo opens the show, followed by eight dancers whose movement through the open Esplanade heightens the solitary otherness of the landscape at night. The audience informs the work as their movement is tracked to generate the sound, light and movement environment that they inhabit.

Paradis is a performance and audio installation with live piano performed by Michael Dauphinais, featuring performers Peggy Cheng, Simon Courchel, Shayla-Vie Jenkins, Luke Miller, Peter Schmitz (soloist), Stuart Singer, Darrin Wright, Pamela Vail, and Kimberly Young, with sound design by Stephan Moore. Paradis marks Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s first site-specific dance project in its 100 year history.

The revolutionary Education of the Girlchild: an opera first appeared in the art world in 1973. This critically acclaimed work, which won first prize in Music Theater at the 1975 Venice Biennale, captures Meredith Monk’s singular style, in which music, theater, image, and ritual are integrated into a luminous form. A poetic work conjuring cycles of growth and transmutation by exploring female/male archetypes, Education of the Girlchild Revisited features Monk’s solo from the original opera. During the second half, Monk is joined by Ensemble members Katie Geissinger, Ellen Fisher and Allison Sniffin to revive music and movement from the “Girlchild” era, including selections from Key: an album of invisible theatre (1970) and Vessel: an opera epic (1971). This masterful program revisits the source of Monk’s prolific outpouring, offering some of the most original performance work of our time.

Anne Bogart, SITI Company, and Charles L. Mee take us on a wild theatrical road trip through the American landscape as Robert Rauschenberg might have conceived it had he been a playwright instead of a painter. More than a biographical portrait, bobrauschenbergamerica is a tribute to one artist’s singular vision.

Discounted Tickets available for Students, Seniors, and Members

TAKE Dance will present two premieres this season - Takehiro Ueyama’s world premiere, Flight and Jill Echo’s New York City premiere, Left there by the Tide. Flight is inspired by a great flock of starlings playing in the sky. Like everything in nature, this wild flock is beautiful, dangerous, honest, and unpredictable. The dance features imagery of breathtaking unison flights and banking turns that sculpt the air in seamless elegant patterns. Left there by the Tide features seven short vignettes of different emotional moments in relationships, beginning and ending in a sea of waves. The title is a line by Edna St. Vincent Millay from her poem Ebb, which also served as inspiration for the work.

This season will also include the stunning theatrical ensemble work, Footsteps in the Snow and Sakura Sakura (“cherry blossoms” in Japanese), a dance for seven women that is ritualistic, beautiful and intense.

ZOOM integrates dance, cell phones, video projection, a real-time web interface and live music. Conceived by Zvi Gotheiner and his artistic team, ZOOM shatters the wall between audience and performers, creating a new type of interactive performance environment. During performances of ZOOM, audience members take cell phone photos and text them to the visual designer, who projects them as real-time video collages. Text messages between audience and performers are also projected live in an exhilarating and unscripted dialogue. And without the use of spoken words, audience members are invited to cross the proscenium to take close-ups of the performers, finding themselves in a radically different relationship to the creative process. Video design by Tal Yarden, composition and live music by Scott Killian, lighting design by Mark London and costume design by Liz Prince.

“Wendy Jehlen is a captivating choreographer, with sharp musical sensibilities, an affinity for the natural integration of modern and world dance styles, and a deep sensitivity to the connections between human body movements and moods.” – Backstage.com

He Who Burns is an exploration through dance, text and music of the figure of Iblis, Satan, as understood in some Sufi traditions. Through this lens, the dance-theater piece explores the nature of humanity’s relationship with the divine, the eternal quest for unity, and the illusion of duality in the human experience. Staged as a trio, He Who Burns takes us on a journey from the time before time, through the suffering of Iblis in his separation from his Beloved, and his quest for the same, through to his ecstatic annihilation.

“Von Howard is all grace and power, working space like a huckster works a crowd: in a couple of minutes, it’s all his.” – Columbia Free Times

The VON HOWARD PROJECT presents Triptych, a contemporary dance work by choreographer Christian von Howard. Inspired by the ideas of light, love and laughter, von Howard along with his eclectic ensemble of dynamic performers bring a vibrantly dense palate of moving architecture. Triptych is a work guided by the human experience; an intricate cycle of physically exhaustive episodes layered into three diverse sections. The evening will conclude with something von Howard is calling his Hidden Track, a new company work by guest choreographer Susan Douglas Roberts to the powerfully evocative music of Claudia Howard Queen.

“I work to listen and help uncover the under-told perspectives of people who have often been told they have limited power and potential.” – Jawole Willa Jo Zollar

Kicking off the Urban Bush Women’s 25th Anniversary season, Zollar: Uncensored explores and interrogates Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s early investigations into the sensual and the power of women. Her early work explored these themes; however they were considered by many to be too controversial for touring in the late 80’s. This is the first time since that time period that Jawole has revisited this content. Still interested in “erotic integrity,” Jawole examines an essential aspect of human nature from an empowered stance.

The company makes its debut at Dance Theater Workshop with two pieces from Trisha Brown’s Back to Zero Cycle, the revival of For MG: The Movie which she describes as “a return to simpler forms” and Foray Forêt, (1990), the last of a series of four works created in collaboration with Robert Rauschenberg. The piece features original visual design and costumes by Rauschenberg as well as a live traditional marching band. Completing the program is Watermotor (1978), a solo dance to be performed by Neal Beasley, the first time this piece has been danced by anyone other than Brown.

Martha@...The 1963 Interview is a metatheatrical recreation of the legendary 92nd Street Y interview with Martha Graham and dance critic Walter Terry. The production commemorates the momentous date of Graham’s passing (April 1, 1991) and marks Richard Move’s return as Graham to New York, with a new incarnation of the celebrated Martha @... series. Actress/playwright Lisa Kron, who portrays Terry, received two Tony Award nominations for Well, including Best Actress. Other honors include Obie, Bessie and GLAAD Awards. Kron’s In the Wake was recently produced at the Public Theater. This world premiere also features dancers Catherine Cabeen and Katherine Crockett, with multimedia design by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo.

“I find the greatest value that can come from dance often arises from the most abstract aspects of the form. As a result, I’m more interested in ‘doing’ than ‘representing,’ and, specifically, ‘doing’ with the body.” - Neil Greenberg

Using extravagant and full-bodied dancing, Neil Greenberg’s (like a vase) explores the tensions created by the seemingly inescapable human desire to make meaning. Six dancers engage with complex and idiosyncratic movement material that serves as both a shifting object of contemplation and a vast container for redoubled meanings. (like a vase) will be performed with live original music composed by Zeena Parkins.

The enigmatic German maker/performer Raimund Hoghe returns to Dance Theater Workshop after his highly acclaimed U.S. debut in 2009. Sans-titre is a partnership between Raimund and the Congo’s rising star Faustin Linyekula. This new work examines the deeply rooted connections between people across age, culture, and geography through Raimund Hoghe’s nuanced, poignant approach to movement and “theater without words.”

“Lar Lubovitch understands profoundly the irreducible essence of dance: bodies propelled through designs in space and time.” - Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

During the 1970’s, choreographer Lar Lubovitch was among the first to explore the kinetic potential of minimalist music in a series of six dances set to compositions by Steve Reich and Philip Glass. His mastery changed how choreography relates to its musical score, and confirmed Lar as a visionary in modern dance. In honor of his company’s 40th anniversary, we are presenting three of these seminal works: Marimba (1976), North Star (1978), and Cavalcade (1980). North Star will be performed by an ensemble of dancers from the senior class at The Juilliard School.

The remounts of Marimba (1976), North Star (1978), and Cavalcade (1980) are supported by the Bessie Schönberg/First Light Commissioning and Creative Residency Program of Dance Theater Workshop with support from the Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Jerome Robbins Foundation. Dance Theater Workshop‘s presentation of North Star is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts’ American Masterpieces: Dance initiative, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts. Additional support provided, in part, by American Express. This presentation is made possible, in part, by the generous support of Helen and Peter Haje through the David R. White Producers Circle.

"...an intensely visceral and emotional experience..." - Dance Theater Journal

“I make work about dancing and the intersection between dancing and other things that I care deeply about.” - Juliette Mapp

Drawing on Gertrude Stein’s visionary novel The Making of Americans, Juliette Mapp creates a powerful yet intimate new dance. The Making of Americans is an homage to Juliette’s mother’s family, immigrants from Albania, who settled in Gary, Indiana, home to the largest steel mill in the United States. The work also draws inspiration from Michael Jackson, a native of Gary, and other music born of the industrial Midwest.

The Making of Americans features video design by John Jesurun. The piece will be performed by Vanessa Anspaugh, Aretha Aoki, Levi Gonzalez, Molly Lieber, Kayvon Pourzar, Anna Sperber, Vicky Shick, and Mapp with lighting design by Jeff Nash and original music by Barbez.

The Making of Americans is commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop’s Commissioning and Creative Residency Program with support provided by Jerome Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and donors to The Fund for Continuing Innovation. The Making of Americans was developed, in part, during a creative residency provided through a partnership between the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography at The Florida State University and Dance Theater Workshop with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. This project is made possible in part by support from the National Performance Network (NPN) Performance Residency Program. For more information: www.npnweb.org

After a week of sold out shows this past spring, Faye Driscoll’s There is so much mad in me returns to Dance Theater Workshop for four nights only. An examination of shifting states of consciousness as choreography, There is so much mad in me, asks how we feel and connect in this time of over stimulation and look at me distraction. Investigating ritual from torture to religious rapture, There is so much mad in me lives within the similarities between polar extremes. What are the fine lines between the abject and the sublime, voyeurism and empathy, entertainment and reality?

“How refreshing to be shown a dance that, in 1982 as now, succeeds in being on the cusps between dance and pedestrian movement, between rehearsal and performance, between tentative experiment and fluent work of art.” – Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

Originally commissioned in 1982 by David R. White and Dance Theater Workshop, Trying Times (remembered) has not been seen in its entirety in over 25 years.

Presented in partnership with Performa 09

“The performers are engaging, wanting, being, and embracing an emotion; what they seem to be saying is that if human sexuality has a façade, then it’s a sensual desire that breaks it. – The Transport

“I’ve spent a lifetime of passion and devotion probing the nature of dance and asking why it so important as a life force.” – Anna Halprin

In 1965, postmodern dance legend Anna Halprin’s Parades & Changes shook the dance world by challenging conceptions of nudity, stillness, and the “ceremony of trust” (as Halprin named it) between performers and audience. Originally banned in the United States, Parades & Changes has not been staged here since 1967. Today, French choreographer Anne Collod, in dialogue with Anna Halprin and original composer Morton Subotnick, is restaging this seminal work, bringing a highly acclaimed group of American and European performers together to relive this masterpiece in its new form, parades & changes, replays.

Performa 09 (November 1-22, 2009, New York City) is the third edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, a non-profit multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century. www.performa-arts.org"

The Jinah Parker Project: SHE

The best way to describe SHE is Eve  Ensler’s THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES meets Ntozake Shange’s FOR COLORED GIRLS. It is dance, it is music, it is about sexual violence, what happened to Sandra Bland after being stopped by a police officer in Texas, and it is storytelling  about healing from trauma and pain. When it premiered in April It featured women who were actual survivors of sexual violence, in their childhoods, as adults, or both. Since then the show has been reworked into a full book written by Jinah Parker.  The show now features 4 actors portraying survivors in addition to 6 dancers that continue to drive the story through movement.  If you happen to see it the first time you are in for a much different and even better ride.  For more information on the show please visit http://www.jinahparker.com/the­show.
