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

An evolving selection of classic works collected in an intimate evening of dance and theater. 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?”.

In Process Talks moderated by Cori Olinghouse

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.

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.

A transgender artist, emory presents a work-in-process titled this horse is not a home, investigating the consequence of action initiated or applied to the weighted body. Throughout the process, emory asks, “If I push down hard enough, will you rise up to meet me? Trust.  If you are going to do something, do it.” Performed by emory with Margot Bassett, Jaamil Kosoko, and Meghan Milam.

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

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.

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.

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.

There is no late seating for all studio series showings.

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.

Smith’s current work-in-process titled Velvet Brown explores feelings of shame, containment and identity. The piece uses improvisation to generate a set emotive movement vocabulary and is greatly inspired by the personal narratives of the performers, which include Courtney Cooke, Caitlin Marz, Molly Lieber and Antonietta Vicario. Velvet Brown features music by Ian Collier/Glass House.

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.

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.

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.

Pre-Show Talk Mar 7 at 6:30pm with Kyle Bukhari
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.

“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.

Pre-Show Talk Dec 21 at 6:30pm with Maura Donahue
Post-Show Talk Dec 23 with Leigh Witchel

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.

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.

Pre-Show Talk Nov 9 at 6:30pm with Carla Peterson
Post-Show Talk Nov 11 with Reggie Wilson after 9:30pm performance

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).

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.

Curated by Carla Peterson with Annie-B Parson

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

Pre-Show Talk Oct 25 at 6:30pm with Lucy Sexton
Post-Show Talk Oct 28 with Bonnie Marranca

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.

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.

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 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.

For Glenn Gould is a portrait of an artist in transition.

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.

“Mr. Greenberg’s artistry resonates through its confluence of the random and the necessary; the continuous stream of motion in which no one moment is particularly important and each is beautiful.” - The New York Times

“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.

“[Hoghe] opens up spaces between things, words and songs for personal reminiscences and affective moments. They are moments for reflection but also for laughter.” - Gerald Siegmund

“I simply do what I have to do.” - Raimund Hoghe

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.”

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

“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

“Driscoll...has a reputation for serious provocation. She makes spectators squirm, and there’s an uneasy edge to the laughter she elicits in exploring our dark pent up, raging urges.” - The Village Voice

“I devise multi-dimensional dance dramas that blur the lines between fantasy and reality, arousal and disgust, fun and violence, spectacle and authenticity.” - Faye Driscoll

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?

Gordon's contemporary reconstruction features Pick Up Performance Company members including Karen Graham, original cast member Valda Setterfield, and dance students from the CalArts Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance.

“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 history of choreography and performance in the Arabic speaking region lives within reciprocal gazes, alternative emotional and physical states, and a movement practice that is centralized on pleasure. In this master class, choreographer, performer and theorist Adham Hafez will be performing with the attendees strategies of performative communication, mutual pleasure, self-pleasure and ecstasy as modes of producing a dance/performance space and experience. The notion 'sultana' -unique to Arab performance practices, will be explored, performed, rearticulated and shared through voice, movement and gazes.

Adham Hafez taught contemporary dance and performance studies internationally including American University in Cairo and the Cairo Opera House Modern Dance School (Egypt), Impulstanz (Austria), and Konstfak (Sweden). He has set up several dance and performance pedagogic processes including HADS in Cairo. Awarded choreographer and composer, he continues to be run his internationally touring performance company based in Cairo, and currently he is a PhD candidate at New York University.

MENA/Future closes with a very special engagement with Hassan Hakmoun, one of the most notable figures in contemporary Moroccan music. Schooled in the traditional sounds of the Gnawa people in his native Marrakesh, since moving to the US his music has absorbed elements from a variety of popular styles, from jazz and "world music" to neo-classical contemporary Western music and cerebral pop, resulting in a diverse, award-winning and critically acclaimed body of work. Hassan Hakmoun's 6-piece ensemble includes the sintir plus vocals, guitar, drums, percussion, flute/sax, and karkaba, the metal double castenets of the Gnawa.

Enmeshed in exploring the Arab-Muslim and Ottoman histories of poetry, mysticism and choreography, Marie Al Fajr builds contemporary dance work that stems from in-depth historical investigations. The ‘hidden garden,’ a metaphor common in Arab miniature depictions, songs and poems from bygone times, is an invitation to look at a unique dance material and somatic practices.

An exclusive screening featuring acclaimed work and US premieres by two of the most unique filmmakers of the region. Combining experimental film technique with narrative structures that question collective memory in the face of ongoing challenges to future-focused ideals, these filmmakers continue to generate powerful visions for the future of cinema.

Films by Maha Maamoun (Egypt)

2026 (2015, 10 minutes)
Shooting Stars Remind Me of Eavesdroppers (2013, 5 minutes)
Night Visitor: The Night of Counting the Years (2011, 9 minutes)

With her films, Maamoun trawls through the cultural imagination in search of historiographical framing in which to set the present. Maamoun’s works indicate that the question of whether art can step out of the symbolic circle in order to have an effect in the world is posed incorrectly: it’s all about the how. Art is opening out almost of its own accord when Maamoun takes seriously symbolic representations and has them clash with one another. In this process ruptures are caused in the representations, enabling the painful points of current questions to be intuited.

Domestic Tourism II (2009, 62 minutes)
In both Domestic Tourism II, Mammoun’s interest is in the generic visual representations of Cairo in a broad sense, and where this intersects with, and is negotiated by, personal experiences. These digitally manipulated images present more complicated, less-sellable and slightly uncomfortable images that comment on the Egypt consumed locally. Tourism in this context refers to a mode of navigating a place and consumption of a locale, whether by a foreigner or a local, and the title, Domestic Tourism, refers to both an intimate and distant relationship to one’s environment.

Films by Larissa Sansour (Jerusalem/Denmark)

Nation Estate (2012, 9 minutes)
Nation Estate is a 9-minute sci-fi short offering a clinically dystopian, yet humorous approach to the deadlock in the Middle East. With its glossy mixture of computer generated imagery, live actors and an arabesque electronica soundtrack, Nation Estate explores a vertical solution to Palestinian statehood. In Sansour’s film, Palestinians have their state in the form of a single skyscraper: the Nation Estate. One colossal high-rise houses the entire Palestinian population – now finally living the high life.

Feast of the Inhabitants (2012, 16 minutes)
In Sansour’s humorous take on the relation between food, politics and cultural identity, the natives are indeed restless. Gathered around a painterly selection of regional delicacies, a group of omnivorous locals host a lively debate covering topics ranging from the best season for lamb’s meat to the multiple Catch 22’s of occupation by a power routinely classifying the Palestinians simply as the ‘Inhabitants of the Territories’ – granting them a more anonymous and legally obscure status than ‘citizens’ or ‘subjects’.

In addition to his role as political commentator for MSNBC, CNN and Bloomberg TV, Al Qassemi emerged among the foremost voices translating the events of the 'Arab Spring' across social media, recognized by TIME Magazine for harnessing its tools to translate events in real time for a worldwide audience. As founder of the Sharjah-based Barjeel Art Foundation he supports some of the Arab world's most vital new voices through exhibitions locally and internationally, and has risen to become one of the most influential and oft-discussed collectors of politically engaged art in the world.

In 2013, he was named one of the "100 most influential people in the world" by Time Magazine. Rula Jebreal is an award-winning journalist, author and foreign policy analyst who has received accolades for her groundbreaking work in Italy, the United States and across the Middle East. Since moving to the United States in 2009, she has been an on-air foreign policy analyst for MSNBC and a contributor to the Daily Beast, Newsweek and Salon.com, where her articles have reflected a deep knowledge of Islamic extremism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the new political order in the Arab Muslim world. Rula has appeared frequently on CNN and Bloomberg, and she has written op-eds for the New York Times and the San Jose Mercury News, among other media outlets. An evening of laughter and insight from two of the world’s most vital voices of transformation.

US Premiere

Fascinated by an artisan’s gestures in which movement is organized to serve production, Mriziga uses his body like a tool to play with perspective and audience expectations. What emerges is an ancient symbol bearing new meaning, questioning our fundamental attachment to symbols and their ability to transgress meanings over time. In the artist’s own words: “The starting point of 55 is: how can I be as functional as possible on stage? As a dancer you constantly ask yourself questions: Is it sufficient? Is this what I want to convey? Is this the right form? What exactly am I doing? What am I making? What do I express? I set out in search of functionality and the form functionality may adopt. It is an almost architectural approach. I question myself as a performer and as a creator.”

OFFSITE at Lycée Francais, 505 East 75th Street, New York, NY, 10021 

Presented by the LFNY Cultural Center in Association with New York Live Arts’ Live Ideas: MENA/Future & Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie

Firebrand Tunisian singer, songwriter, and composer Emel Mathlouthi has been called "The Voice of the Tunisian Revolution." An inheritor of the legacy of American and Arabic protest singers of the 1960’s, she is considered one of the great divas of the Arab World. She gained attention when her song “Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free)” was adopted by the Arab Spring revolutionaries and soon became like an anthem throughout the region. Mathlouthi is devoted to her Tunisian folk roots but deeply influenced by such Western artists as Joan Baez, Massive Attack, Bjork and her sometime-collaborator Tricky. Her gorgeous, intricate sound moves between rock, trip-hop and electronica, all interlaced with classical Arabic tradition. Her delicate and rousing songs express love, suffering and longing for home in a deeply confessional style that verges on sacred Sufi music and an idiom that would not be out of place in the discos of Europe or America.

You can watch Mathlouthi's recent performance at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert HERE.

New York City Premiere

HaRaKa Platform (Various)

Four female performers bring their solo works to NYC for the first time reflecting current realities within the complexity and personalization of political forces on their bodies and craft, and the difficulty of making work in the region. Through movement, comedy, and extraordinary breadth, these works examine ownership of work and legacy, questioning audience members’ commitment and the artist’s desire to quit art altogether, and the challenge of Arab artists working worldwide.

‘Shagarat Mussafira (Traveling Trees)’ 
by Marie Al Fajr (Paris / Cairo)

Based in Cairo and Paris, French choreographer Marie Al Fajr's work has always raised questions on the politics of aesthetics and the production of temporalities. Her company's choreographic investigation challenges our notions of beauty in contemporary dance now, and problematizes ownership of culture(s). Al Fajr Company was founded by Marie Al Fajr to invest in research into Egyptian dance and music, staging works that are rooted in contemporary Arab culture, the classical Arabic language, and the history of Arab-Islamic art. Her productions refuse market generated aesthetics and Western-centric performance codes. Never starting from ethnology or cultural anthropology perspectives, but rather from an embodied living quotidian knowledge, the work of Marie Al Fajr is perhaps 'intemporary' – as the artist refers to the creations – rather than 'contemporary'.

‘SAP: Safe Art Practice’
by Mona Gamil (Egypt)

Poet, dancer, performance maker and digital artist Mona Gamil is an Egyptian-Irish active member of the thriving Egyptian performance and dance scene. Based in Egypt and Ireland, the work of Mona Gamil doesn't investigate questions of being biracial nor does it speak of intercultural realities. It concretely manifests elements of the complexity of Cairo's contemporary history, and yet never represents it. 'Safe Art Practice' is Mona Gamil's multi-episode guideline to initiate us all into a new genre, a new practice, where we shall never run out of ideas, where we shall always please the market, where we shall always succeed as artists and satisfy all audiences internationally, without resorting to politics and without shocking anyone – not at all. Mona Gamil's work has been presented in Egypt, Germany, Sweden, France and Ireland within performance and visual arts contexts.

‘Atlas’
Concept, choreography, performance by Leyya Mona Tawil (Syria/Palestine)
Music concept, performance by Mike Khoury

Weight of the world.
We crack.
Atlas is concerned with the negotiations of burden – who holds what. It teases assumed agreements between performer and audience – using immersive states to press weight upon the room. Atlas is a score of disorientation that places Tawil at the mercy of her own doing. Survivalist. No resolve. Explicit resolve.

‘In-Situ’
Choreography & Performance by Amira Chebli (Tunis)

In-situ is a sombre performance of oscillating movements within a constricted body. The Tunisian choreographer and performer reflects on the constitutive power of the gaze, as she wonders saying: 'My lips my eyes my legs my smells...all those eyes staring at me, each detail of me'. Amira Chebli proposes belly dance as one of the very last spaces left for a woman to move, to vibrate, to oscillate, to undulate, as she re-members a history of women dancers in the golden age of Arab black and white cinema, seen now through socially policed female bodies.

Since it's premiere this past June 2015, Analogy/Dora: Tramontane has both thrilled and moved audiences with its honesty, compassion and above all, it's humanity. The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company is now creating the second part of the Analogy trilogy, Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist. This work-in-progress showing will give a sneak peak into the troubled world of Jones' nephew, Lance, and his story of addiction and recovery. Both stories, while wildly different ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well lived.

FIND YOURSELF HERE is the culmination of a two-year collaboration between three dancers and three visual artists using movement as a potent form of communication across disciplines. This work started as a solo, became three trios and is now a sextet with a yearlong collaboration with the composer.

After creating and performing three separate trios, each a collaboration between two dancers and one visual artist created in a short, intensive period of time and connected to a specific space, the team presents an evening-length dance performance that brings the research, discoveries and unique people from these three trios together into one theater. With a spectrum between tension and harmony, isolation and togetherness, the performers use movement as a dynamic, immediate form of dialogue between bodies and disciplines, highlighting the boundaries and shared concerns of visual art and performance and the forums for presenting each.

Sonya Tayeh’s original work-in-progress You'll Still Call Me By Name is a dance-symphony - an emotionally charged dream-memoir of her deeply complex, mystifying and, at times, jagged relationship with her mother, and thus, with herself. Developed through the Live Feed Program, the new work features frequent collaborators Jo Lampert (performer) and folk and gospel-infused musical wonders The Bengsons (Composer/Performers Abigail Nessen Bengson & Shaun McLain Bengson). You’ll Still Call Me By Name is a theatrical purging, a cathartic exploration of ritual, anger and love. It is the fiery story of faith and choice, of family and devotion, and of the extreme beauty and enlightenment of an individual’s sudden transformation, and the tumult it can cause for those around them.

Finnish artist Elina Pirinen makes her U.S. debut with her award-winning trio, Personal Symphonic Moment. In this on-stage autopsy of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, declared in 1942 to be an indictment of Fascism, Pirinen uses a personal approach to examine the concept of living within the current “zeitgeist,” leading to an exploration of eroticism, shame, danger and excess.

In 1850, news of “The California Gold Rush” reached southern China before most Americans had learned of it and thus began an exodus of 300,000 Chinese immigrants to “Gold Mountain.” South Of Gold Mountain draws from rich oral histories, treasured images, official and private documentation of Chinese settlers lured to America by the promise of gold and a prosperous life.  With the support of Chinese American community heritage museums and family associations in the US, three years of extensive research and in-depth interviews were conducted with immigrants and their descendants, inspiring this insightful production by HT Chen & Dancers. 

The similarity between village life in China and living in southern US communities was evident as the immigrants were helped by those arriving before them, to endure daily hardships and adjust to the cultural challenges of their adoptive country. Discrimination, racism, and physical violence were prevalent.  To survive, they became deeply connected despite rural isolation. These Chinese residents helped build America by working on railroads, levees, and plantations, and as grocers. 

HT Chen & Dancers’ production memorializes the struggles of thousands of Chinese Americans and their legacy. It acknowledges generations of descendants and blended communities now thriving across the US.  Blending a contemporary sound score, traditional Chinese music, and Deep South Blues, this vital dance-theater celebration of the first Chinese American settlements is an enlightening story of immigration, civil rights, and assimilation. 

“… a moving and engaging choreographic tribute to the few pioneering Chinese immigrants who settled in the American South starting as early as the end of the Civil War.”         -  John Jung, Author, Scholar, Professor

H.T. Chen & Dancers' performances are part of New York Live Arts' Community Rental program, which is designed for dance and theater companies, as well as producing and non-profit organizations.

This letter to Jones’ nephew is a music and dance driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in show business, the sex trade and the hard job of growing up. This is a celebration and meditation on the life of Lance T. Briggs.

Music composed by Nick Hallett accompanies the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.

The Body Against Body program is an intimate and focused collection of duet works drawn from the Company’s 30 year history. Bill T. Jones returns to his roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

In this workshop we will explore partnered dancing and dance making as exercised in the training and repertory of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

Historically and spiritually rooted in the convention-defying partnership of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, the company’s approach to partnering is informed by over thirty years of rigorous investigation into the dynamic possibilities of physical relationship in art.

In an atmosphere of curiosity, warmth and constructive risk-taking, participants will be exposed to approaches to partnering founded in personal, interpersonal, and spatial awareness; deep kinesthetic sensitivity; and the intellectual and embodied understanding of the physical dynamics of weight, structure, and momentum. Diving in with the company’s highly collaborative working style, we will explore it’s creative methodologies and work with generative structures inspired by those used in the Company’s repertory, past and present.​

Co-presented with Irish Arts Center

As inspiration for their latest production, Arcane Collective delves delves into the Samuel Beckett trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. In reverence to Beckett, Return to Absence embodies the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to these remarkable stories. Constructing a fluent language of movement and environments as abstract and absurd as Beckett’s unparalleled composition of words, the dance emerges as an intimate portrayal of humanity; a rich and ridiculous non-linear storytelling.

Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.

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

This fall’s edition of Barnard/Columbia Dances at New York Live Arts features three world premieres along with Canonic 3/4 Studies, Mark Morris’ witty and musically inventive work staged by Marjorie Folkman (‘91) with live music played by Robert Boston.  The premieres are by Molissa Fenley, whose choreography since the start of her 38-year career has emphasized speed, stamina, and athletic virtuosity; Caitlin Trainor, who uses sensuous environments to create what has been called “pure dance without pretension”; and Alexandra Beller, whose pieces, rich in metaphor and abstracted narrative, stand on the edge between dance and theater.  Produced by the Barnard College Department of Dance and performed by Barnard and Columbia University students, this concert marks the eleventh season of the College’s collaboration with New York Live Arts.

Barnard/Columbia Dances' performances are part of New York Live Arts' Community Rental program, which is designed for dance and theater companies, as well as producing and non-profit organizations.

Proxy Girls: Performance + Dialogue with Noura Murad (Syria)

A very special event blending the worlds of Syria with downtown NYC Worlds move beyond borders…When a dancer's body is politicized beyond the dancer's agency, and borders are erected at each step s/he takes, can we still dance together? Commissioned by HaRaKa, 'Proxy Girls' is a performed research on borders, distances, and constricted choreographies, inviting leading Syrian choreographer Noura Murad and Leish Troupe to move a few downtown’s most dynamic dancers in New York City through distant written and recorded scores from their home in Syria where they are unable to leave. Bodies held worlds apart come together on this evening to rethink distance as a possibility for intimacy, followed by an open dialogue on borders and their manifestation in our working lives.

Produced in Association with MAPP International Productions and Critical Partner, Culturebot.

While many conversations about privilege and equity in the arts seem to get stuck, artists are actively addressing social inequity and injustice head on. Through creative activism, cultural organizing, and producing provocative artworks, art makers are tackling tough issues despite the obstacles before them. This intimate discussion with Raquel Almazan, Kyoung H. Park, Morley and Fury Young, panelists and audience members are encouraged to participate in a dialogue about confronting privilege, social hierarchies, and their pursuits of cultural equity through art making. Participants are asked to consider their own social advantages and disadvantages, and how it is used in their creative process. How are we expanding the cultural diversity narrative through creative works? This discussion will be moderated by Rasu Jilani.

Faces of Resistance: Young, Organized & Unified (#FORYOU)

Produced in Association with MAPP International Productions and Critical Partner, Culturebot

Curated by MAPP International Productions

The first of five season-wide events in New York Live Arts’ Open Spectrum series of community dialogues is dedicated to recognizing the current creative and social resistance movements in America responding to everything from Police Brutality to Mass Incarceration to Mass Deportation. Faces of Resistance: Young, Organized & Unified (#FORYOU) is a public forum that serves as a gathering of trailblazers who have started various movements in response to injustice in Ferguson, Baltimore, Charleston, and The Dominican Republic. #FORYOU is intended to take the audience and participants on an inquiry-based journey through the questions: Who are the people behind these movements? What prompted their responses? How do they convene? What are some practices we can share to organize? What does victory look like?

Moderated by Grace Ali, Founder/Editorial Director, Of Note magazine, with Baba Israel, Writer/Performer/Hip Hop Activist, Allen Kwabena Frimpong, Black Lives Matter, Niegel Smith, Willing Participant & Flea Theatre, Jamillah Lemieux, Journalist at Ebony Magazine, Beatrice Anderson, Harriet's Apothecary and Ayiti Ressurect.

This year's Fresh Tracks features works by Melanie Greene, Sarah Lifson, Eli Tamondong, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes and Jonathan Gonzalez, and Georgia Wall and Itamar Segev.

Melanie Greene’s Performing Okay conjures a curious contradiction of meaning, quality, and intention as one word sits simultaneously within competing body and language narratives. It sparks questions surrounding repetition, physicality, and language.

Sarah Lifson’s i eat pancakes for dinner is freedom, free will, and free verse. It concerns itself with consumption, and the active vs. passive infiltration of information into our cells.

Melding dance and spoken word, Eli Tamondong’s Feast or Famine struggles with American masculinity and love through a queer Filipino boy’s eyes. Tinikling, a traditional Philippine dance, and ballet collide over golf commentary and gay sex, coming-of-age in a world of fetishization and colonized bodies. Entangled by white love, how does this boy find value in all colors?

Mining collaborative as well as personal movement histories, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes and Jonathan Gonzalez’s yet-to-be-titled work investigates the disparities and similarities that lie between our bodies culturally, socially, and artistically. Harmony and dissonance continually emerge in their identity markers as a queer identified white woman and a queer identified brown man. While experimenting with the physical aspects of disorientation, duration, momentum, and intimacy, the manifold aspects of their identities, creative visions, and creative histories also become physical realities at play.

In Pose for Prom Prayer, Georgia Wall and Itamar Segev are topless, wearing only baggy white cotton briefs which resemble diapers or modern day loincloths. They merge and disperse, searching and subverting trying, to burst open lust and prayer. Georgia loves to alter her body. Itamar can make her cry when he sings.

New York Live Arts’ signature Fresh Tracks Program is New York City’s leading, season-long residency and performance opportunity for artists exploring hybrid and movement-based work at the early stages of their careers. Created in 1965 by Dance Theater Workshop, Fresh Tracks continues as a signature program in New York Live Arts’ newly minted “New Work Development Program.” Designed as a springboard for intensive choreographic, administrative and creative development, Fresh Tracks is a pioneer opportunity in the field, positioning early career artists at a unique vantage point within Live Arts' annual programming. 

Unfolding over the course of Live Arts’ regular presenting season, the Fresh Tracks Program provides five artists with a 50-hour studio residency, a professionally-produced shared evening bill in the New York Live Arts theater, an artistic fee, one-on-one dialogue sessions with the program’s Artistic Adviser, professional development workshops led by renowned professionals from the field and exclusive access to Live Arts’ Marketing, Production and Programming staff support.

New York Live Arts’ debut music series features yMusic, a genre defying, indie-classical ensemble comprised of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators—from Dirty Projectors to Ben Folds, Bon Iver and Beck—and evolved to become one of the great forces shaping contemporary music today.

For this debut season, they will perform commissioned works by contemporary composers Marcos Balter, an artist “making big waves lately for his adventurous, unpredictable work” (The New York Times); Paul Corley, “a masterful sculptor of sound” (Textura); the “fresh and vibrant” (The Classical Review) Mark Dancigers; Paul Wiancko; Nate Thatcher; Qasim Naqvi; and Robert Sirota, known by The New York Times  as “One to reckon with.”

The series culminates in December with a special one-week run featuring a world premiere composition by Marcos Balter, created in collaboration with and for legendary choreographers Bill T. Jones and Dianne McIntyre.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Miguel Gutierrez, “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” (Dance Magazine), culminates his extraordinary Age & Beauty series with the New York City premiere of Part 3 and the presentation of the full series in one theater over two weeks. Gutierrez’s highly anticipated project consists of a three-part suite of queer performance works addressing the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional labor of performance, tropes about the aging gay choreographer, the interaction of art making with administration, “queer time,” futurity and mid-life anxieties about relevance, sustainability and artistic burnout. The Age & Beauty Series is the first of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Age & Beauty Part 3: DANCER or You can make whatever the fuck you want but you’ll only tour solos or The Powerful People or We are strong/We are powerful/We are beautiful/We are divine or &:’/// is the third and culminating chapter of the series. Performed by Gutierrez along with an intergenerational cast, whose immediate physical representation is not as a “dancer,” the piece envisions a future dripping with lamentation, aspiration, melancholy, fantasy and doubt: a choreography for the end of the world.    

Age & Beauty Part 3 is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

The Age & Beauty Series is supported in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

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

In Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka the Escape Artist, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons-drugs and excess- exposes us to another type of war. It was the battlefield of the nightlife and underworld of the late 80s and early 90s club culture and sex trade. This “pretty boy-gangster thug”, a name he acquired in prison, holds steadfast to his often tragic and sometimes outrageously humorous narrative, while facing an uncertain future.

US Premiere

Part political summit, part multi-media opera, part protest Hafez’s 2065 BC is a displaced and revisited re-enactment of the infamous ‘Berlin Conference’ of 1884 presenting a complex set of questions around the ethics of occupation in a manner that is dark, comic and politically ignited. In the year 2065, a conference of African scientists, politicians and diplomats gather in Berlin to announce the new world order. “2065 BC” is the result of a two-year research process on politics and aesthetics, developed and directed by the Adham Hafez Company and the platform HaRaKa. The research took place in Cairo, Berlin and New York, and continues to unfold its many products in the form of a performance triptych and publications series.

The Body Against Body program is an intimate and focused collection of duet works drawn from the Company’s 30 year history. Bill T. Jones returns to his roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

Bill T. Jones returns to Europe with a new site-specific work: A Letter to My Nephew/Pretty

This letter to Jones’ nephew is a music and dance driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in show business, the sex trade and the hard job of growing up. This is a celebration and meditation on the life of Lance T. Briggs.

Composer Nick Hallett will accompany the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The music will be performed/mixed live onstage while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) responds to Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major (1903), reflecting the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint. Similar to the music’s complicated internal logic, one of two choreographic variations for the third movement (either landscape or portrait) is selected by chance procedure before each performance. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

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

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

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

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

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces Arnie Zane’s interests in photography and film. Originally choreographed by Zane in 1977 as a solo titled Hand Dance and later revised as a group work by Bill T. Jones in 1991, ContinuousReplay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) responds to Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major (1903), reflecting the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint. Similar to the music’s complicated internal logic, one of two choreographic variations for the third movement (either landscape or portrait) is selected by chance procedure before each performance. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

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

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

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

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

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

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces Arnie Zane’s interests in photography and film. Originally choreographed by Zane in 1977 as a solo titled Hand Dance and later revised as a group work by Bill T. Jones in 1991, ContinuousReplay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

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

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

Two pillars of Austin's exploding performing arts scene—Rude Mechs, known for their eclectic and "remarkable" (New York Magazine) performance experiments spanning nearly 20 years, and Deborah Hay, the acclaimed choreographer with a “mischievous sense of play” (The New York Times)—are at the heart of Match-Play, a big-stakes play created by Rude Mechs and adapted from Hay’s New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning dance, The Match (2004). A haunting, sometimes hysterical yet sincere meditation on consciousness, Match-Play collages liminal texts from the notebooks of preeminent theater artist Richard Foreman with Ms. Hay’s written score and original text by Kirk Lynn. With Rude Mechs’ trademark penchant for slapstick and innovative staging, Match-Play hovers between hallucination and insight, tackling the overarching frame for Ms. Hay’s “handsome” (The New York Times) work: “What if every cell in the body has the potential to perceive all time and space as unique and original. And it’s no big deal.” The result is a tragicomic coaster ride exploring our cultural need for spectacle, our preoccupation with novelty and our ability (or inability) to connect the ordinary moments of life with the extraordinariness of living. Featuring SITI Company’s Barney O’Hanlon, don't miss Rude Mechs’ quirky and meditative exploration of the depths (and shallows) of the human mind.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Jen Rosenblit--a choreographer lauded for her “Sly, tender and spatially sophisticated” (The New York Times) performance pieces--returns to Live Arts to present her newest work. Clap Hands is a mating call, a solo for the body that needs bodies. While conceptually a solo, the work will navigate its form through multiple bodies and objects. Each element constantly emerges from itself through a process of self-fertilization without resorting to pattern, ritual or husbandry. Fuchsia felted set pieces install the space, enacting a sort of still life and hailing the functional while demanding flamboyance. Clap Hands asks: Does the establishment of this new “thingness" shift the solo figure out of demand? Is intimacy still located within non-human forms?

Clap Hands is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

The critically acclaimed, Obie award-winning theater ensemble Half Straddle will make their Live Arts debut with the world premiere of Ghost Rings. Driven by an original song cycle, the work is inspired by elements of live band dynamics, graphic novels, and music videos and tells the story of two friends taking the ultimate leap into adulthood. With text and lyrics by Tina Satter, the “genre-and-gender-bending, visually exacting stage artist” (The New York Times) and music by Chris Giarmo and Erin Markey, the show unfurls a narrative of contemporary friendship and family-making told through virtuosic performances and evocative design. Mixing deadpan magical realism with the considerations of feminist thinkers like Maggie Nelson and Michelle Tea, the resulting piece is a tender, harrowingly funny, unexpected musical experience. 

Ghost Rings is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Rebecca Lazier makes her New York Live Arts debut with her movement-based realization of Terry Riley’s seminal masterpiece IN C, performed with a live score by Dan Trueman in collaboration with members of two of today’s most vital ensembles, SÅŒ Percussion and Mobius Percussion. Created along with a diverse group of artists, designers and scientists, and featuring an international cadre of performers, the work questions the role of presence, performer agency and collective decision-making to create emergent forms. Known for her “intelligent, fine control of complex material” (The Village Voice) showcasing an “exciting immediacy” (The New York Times), this extraordinary collaboration features dramaturgy and design by Naomi Leonard, Davison Scandrett and Mary Jo Mecca, as well as acclaimed dancers Asli Bulbul, Simon Courchel, Natalie Green, Cori Kresge, Christopher Ralph and Saúl Ulerio.

Welcome to the Champagne Room: a magical hideaway open to the public for an exclusive, limited engagement by hip-hop sensation Champagne Jerry. Joining him are his onstage entourage of miscreants known as the Champagne Club, a rotating cast of others including Neal Medlyn, Adam Horovitz, Kathleen Hanna, Bridget Everett, the House of Larreon, Carmine Covelli and a series of real and invented bands. Revel in a world of cheap gold, dance, effervescence and memories to last a lifetime via a one-time-only epic performance event celebrating the release of CJ’s new album; an acclaimed, sold-out tour of Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club parking lots across the Southeastern seaboard from the back of a van; and a suite of videos directed by Jason Cacioppo. “Simultaneously catchy, affecting, creepy, endearing, funny, puzzling, and profoundly strange” (Blouin ARTINFO), this is Champagne Jerry in the Champagne Room featuring Neal Medlyn.

Called “One of the most influential dance theatre companies in the world” (The Guardian), the critically acclaimed Belgian contemporary ensemble les ballets C de la B and 10 Palestinian performers make their New York Live Arts debut with the unprecedented international dance experiment Badke, a display of passion for life and dance as a form of resistance. Created by Koen Augustijnen, Rosalba Torres Guerrero (les ballets C de la B) and Hildegard De Vuyst (KVS) in residence with 10 young dancers in Ramallah, the work unites a diverse number of dance forms ranging from the traditional dabke to modern dance, hip-hop, capoeira and circus.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Art world provocateur Ann Liv Young catapults her radical version of Sophocles’ Elektra to the stage in her first American commission since 2008. Young’s Elektra is volatile, authentic, honest, compassionate, steadfast and tragic. Created in collaboration with Annie Dorsen, the epic evening begins with her potent and corporeal vision of Sophocles’ story of a family steeped in murder, revenge, and deception - Young plays the title role with an intrepid cast of performers (including her 8-year-old daughter, Lovey), cycling through versions of the text splintered by pop songs and sequences of bold, jarring movement. A lush intermission features performances by a special musical guest from Norway, drowning the theater and inviting a visit to the lobby bar. The evening rages on with Young’s critically acclaimed, rough and tumble Elektra Cabaret. Exploring the fine line between following the social flow and being a responsible and decisive agent, Elektra wants everyone to question, to pay attention, and to break free from the yoke of social norms and act as an engaged individual.

This performance contains adult content. 

Additional Events:

Jan 21 Post Show Discussion with Annie Dorsen. 

Jan 31, 2-4pm, Shared Practice: Sherapy, $20.

Elektra is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Elektra is a co-production of steirischer herbst Festival (Graz, Austria) and Gessnerallee Zurich (Switzerland).

Produced by Alexandra Rosenberg/Rosie Management and Ann Liv Young co.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Stay Late conversation, Friday, December 4th moderated by Michèle Steinwald.

Merging dance, live music and visual arts, Choreographer/Director Pavel Zuštiak examines the multiplicity of concepts of beauty and its permanence within art in Custodians of Beauty. The new work forges towards abstraction, minimalism, and restrained expressive modes while amplifying the potency of an image, as well as the human body as sculpture, emotional trigger, or political symbol. Zuštiak continues his acclaimed working relationship with composter/musician Christian Frederickson and lighting designer Joe Levasseur. Zuštiak is the 2015 Juried Award Recipient for The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards. 

In an age when humanity, disenchanted with itself, seems to have rejected the necessity of beauty, Custodians of Beauty asks us to look again, beyond the surface, to see differently. Where do we find beauty today and does it need our defense?

 

Custodians of Beauty is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Walker Arts Center, Legion Arts and NPN. The Creation Fund is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency). The Forth Fund is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. For more information: www.npnweb.org.

Custodians of Beauty is supported by Jerome Foundation. It will have its world premiere at American Dance Institute (ADI) as part of ADI’s Incubator program.

Rotterdam based performance gang Wunderbaum is pulling no punches in their highly anticipated New York premiere. It’s Inez van Dam vs. Kabouter Buttplug, the notorious sculpture by infamous artist Paul McCarthy. Inez lived a simple, serene life in Rotterdam until the installation of the so-called “Buttplug Gnome.” Inez thinks this work of public art is ruining her street, her very life, and she’s heading to Los Angeles to track down McCarthy and take revenge. But can this defiant citizen defeat the indelible force of contemporary art? Who funded this so-called art anyway? Could her hard-earned taxes have contributed to this? Wunderbaum has graciously invited Inez, en route to LA, to make her case in New York City. Designer Maarten van Otterdijk, along with actors and creators Walter Bart, Inez van Dam, Matijs Jansen, Maartje Remmers, Marleen Scholten and guest Daniel Frankl, bring her story to life. Join Live Arts for the New York City premiere of Looking for Paul, a genre-colliding work that questions art’s purpose, how it gets made and the international funding systems that support its existence, all through the lens of McCarthy’s controversial work.

NO LATE SEATING

A solo creation at the intersection of theater, dance and visual art installation, Bronx Gothic gives palpable force to the charged relationship between two girls on the verge of adolescence in 1980s outer-borough New York City--where Newports are bought in singles at the corner deli, sex saturated notes are passed in class, and Orchard Beach erupts in flame.

Returning for a command run, Okwui Okpokwasili’s acclaimed, New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning piece has been hailed as a breakthrough work, and is envisioned for Live Arts’ stage as part of a multi-year collaboration with the artist. Hers is a performance of psychic and physical collisions that threaten to break the body—an unflinching look into the exquisite turbulence of one woman’s memory. Created in collaboration with Peter Born, Bronx Gothic draws inspiration from Victorian-era novels and West African griot storytelling to reveal a dark and powerful tale of sexual awakening, the body in transformation and the humor, love, strangeness and even terror that accompany it. “In language that is by turns blunt and poetic, crudely funny and incantatory, Ms. Okpokwasili conjures and probes this adolescent friendship, a jumble of insults, anger and love…A magnetic performer” (The New York Times). 

Bronx Gothic was co-commissioned by Performance Space 122, Danspace Project, LMCC and a 50th Anniversary Grant from the Jerome Foundation with residency support from Under Construction at the Armory, New York Live Arts, Baryshnikov Arts Center and as part of LMCC’s Extended Life Dance Development program. Additional commissioning support was provided by Le Mallion in Strasbourg, ThéaÌ‚tre de Gennevilliers in Paris, Theatre Garonne in Toulouse and ZagrebacÌŒko KazalisÌŒte Mladih (ZMK), the Zagreb Youth Theatre in Zagreb, Croatia.  

Bronx Gothic is a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project Touring Award, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts. 

The 2015-16 tour of Bronx Gothic is produced by MAPP International Productions.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015.

A rising star quickly becoming one of Europe’s most celebrated dance artists, Italian performer, choreographer and director Alessandro Sciarroni makes his New York Live Arts debut with Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow?. A performative and choreographic practice focusing on time, Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow? springs from the idea of ancient folk dances as popular phenomena that have survived contemporaneity. Dancers perform the Schuhplattler, a typical Bavarian and Tyrolean dance that means “shoe batter” and literally consists of hitting one’s shoes and legs with one’s hands. The result is a deeply rhythmic and auditory work that presents dance as a rule, a dictatorship and a flux of images that follow the form, not the content. Called "...a meticulous work, capable of exciting progressively through a reiteration of actions that becomes dramaturgy" (La Repubblica), the folk material finds its clearest revelation in a loop of percussive repetition, geographically and culturally decontextualized. Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow?  is the final of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015 and the Hermès Foundation’s (Fondation d'entreprise Hermès) New Settings Program.

Lives is an observance of oneself from three different points of view. It is a revisitation, unraveling and reworking of Moini’s 2008 work My Paradoxical Life, presenting a single blueprint from a multifaceted self. Trained as a musician and singer in his native Iran, Moini is known for works that tackle themes like the fragmentation of identity, the mutability of existence, and the search for selfhood, many of which are present in Lives. Featuring video, design and props, the work uses meticulous amplification to multiply Moini’s voice, words and narratives, encouraging an exploration of the myriad possibilities for self-dialogue. Lives is the second of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015.

Miguel Gutierrez, “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” (Dance Magazine), culminates his extraordinary Age & Beauty series with the New York City premiere of Part 3 and the presentation of the full series in one theater over two weeks. Gutierrez’s highly anticipated project consists of a three-part suite of queer performance works addressing the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional labor of performance, tropes about the aging gay choreographer, the interaction of art making with administration, “queer time,” futurity and mid-life anxieties about relevance, sustainability and artistic burnout. The Age & Beauty Series is the first of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Age & Beauty Part 2: Asian Beauty @ the Werq Meeting or The Choreographer & Her Muse or &:@& deals with Gutierrez’s long-term creative/work relationships and features performer/choreographer Michelle Boulé, arts manager Ben Pryor and lighting designer Lenore Doxsee. The piece harnesses retrospection and Gutierrez’s archives of his past work to demonstrate how relationships, money and flights of fancy are at the center of all art making.

The Age & Beauty Series is supported in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/ is a duet for 43-year-old Gutierrez and 24-year-old performer/dancer Mickey Mahar. Moving from precise unison dances to an irreverent and celebratory corruption of orderliness, the work suggests modes of communication where hyper-emotional affect is not only the conceptual and choreographic core of the performance, but also the sole hope for continuing in this messed up world.

Star dancer of Édouard Lock’s La La La Human Steps from 1981 to 1999 and heralded as “the Madonna of contemporary dance” by The Washington Post, 56 year old Louise Lecavalier is a force of nature known worldwide for her artistic stamina, power and grace, birthing a movement style unlike any other. The first Canadian to win a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award in 1985 for Businessman in the Process of Becoming an Angel, presented by Dance Theater Workshop, Lecavalier returns to present the New York City premiere of her first extended piece of choreography, So Blue.

Recently awarded Toronto’s Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Production, So Blue was conceived and choreographed by Lecavalier with assistance from collaborator France Bruyère. With an intensely rhythmic soundtrack featuring Montréal composer and atypical world-music artist Mercan Dede, the work is performed by Lecavalier and Frédéric Tavernini, the “host of corporeal seismic shifts” (Fjord Review). The movement is inspired by simple, everyday gestures infused with speed, repetition, abstraction and theatricality. With stark, cool lighting by collaborator Alain LortieSo Blue is rife with “the still-riveting power of Lecavalier's dancing” (The Guardian), showcasing her “veritable font of jaw-dropping inspiration” (Fjord Review).

Production: Fou Glorieux, in co-production with: tanzhaus nrw (Düsseldorf); Théâtre de la Ville (Paris); Hellerau (Dresden); National Arts Centre (Ottawa); Festival TransAmériques (Montreal); Creative Residency: Szene Salzburg Fou Glorieux is supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Montreal Arts Council.

Analogy: A Trilogy

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

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

Jones’ present preoccupation is with the development of his company into an ensemble that not only dances beautifully, but also sings and speaks. Members of the company will deliver texts from all narratives.

Jones first began his exploration of Analogy: A Trilogy through reading W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants. Inspired by the novelistic creation, he wanted something to compare to the character Ambros Adelwarth from the individuals around Jones himself. He began an oral history with Dora Amelan. Originally intended as a gift to her sons to capture their mother’s memory, he became fascinated not only with Dora’s story, but with her character. As Jones began development on Analogy: A Trilogy, based on Dora’s stories, he felt that she needed a more percussive counterpoint. He began a conversation with his nephew, Lance, a young African-American man in the middle of his life with an uncertain future. All three stories, while wildly different ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well lived.

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

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane

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

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 94-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 25 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive. 

Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist

In Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons-drugs and excess- exposes us to another type of war. It was the battlefield of the nightlife and underworld of the late 80s and early 90s club culture and sex trade. This “pretty boy-gangster thug”, a name he acquired in prison, holds steadfast to his often tragic and sometimes outrageously humorous narrative, while facing an uncertain future. 

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant is Jones’ reaction to Ambros Adelwarth from W.G.Sebald’s celebrated historical novel, The Emigrants. This narrative, through a fictionalized history, strives to suggest how an experience of trauma can go underground in the psyche of an individual and direct consciously and unconsciously the course of that individual’s life. The central figure, Ambros Adelwarth, is a German valet/manservant who serves as companion to a privileged, dissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family. This restrained and evocative narrative tracks Ambros’ experience working at hotels, the glamorous travels with his charge, Cosmo, through Europe and the Middle East on the eve of WWI and then his life after Cosmo’s death.

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

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant is Jones’ reaction to Ambros Adelwarth from W.G.Sebald’s celebrated historical novel, The Emigrants. This narrative, through a fictionalized history, strives to suggest how an experience of trauma can go underground in the psyche of an individual and direct consciously and unconsciously the course of that individual’s life. The central figure, Ambros Adelwarth, is a German valet/manservant who serves as companion to a privileged, dissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family. This restrained and evocative narrative tracks Ambros’ experience working at hotels, the glamorous travels with his charge, Cosmo, through Europe and the Middle East on the eve of WWI and then his life after Cosmo’s death. 

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

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

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant will premiere in 2017.
