Please join us for a special conversation and screening on dance, performance, and art with Ping Chong, artist; Bill T. Jones, dancer-choreographer; and Muna Tseng, dancer-choreographer, sister of Tseng Kwong Chi and trustee of his estate, moderated by Karen Shimakawa, associate professor and chair of Performance Studies, TSOA, NYU. The event will begin with an excerpt of the performance SlutForArt a.k.a.Ambiguous Ambassador and 98.6: A Convergence in 15 Minutes choreographed and performed by Muna Tseng and conceived and directed by Ping Chong. The performance features the voiceover of the Tseng and Chong in an interview about Tseng Kwong Chi along with projected photographs in a deeply moving homage to the memory of an artist and brother who succumbed to the AIDS virus in 1990.

“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

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. 

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/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist will premiere at the American Dance Festival in June 2016.

Elisa Monte Dance, Buglisi Dance Theatre and Jennifer Muller/The Works join forces to present Reflections on Water..... in a series of five shared program performances featuring four pieces, two world premieres, 26 Dancers and six noted designers.

Three distinguished choreographers at the height of their careers, each with a powerful original voice offer observations on water - the source or destruction of life. The programs includes four diverse pieces and features two world premieres.

The three choreographers create work from three unique points of view, yet share a sensibility that combines virtuostic movement with an expressive edge that moves minds and hearts – work that dances full out yet speaks of both individual experiences and shared humanity.

The 26 extraordinary performers push physical capability, standing out as an individuals yet working in cohesive ensembles.

Monte/Buglisi/Muller LIVE! offers the opportunity to experience three acclaimed dance companies together on one stage!

Alchemy (Muller/World Premiere) is a piece about the crucible of change. Originally a forerunner of chemistry, alchemy concerned itself with transformation. The physical transmutation of matter became an analogy for the internal alchemy of spiritual revelation  Just as new growth forests are created by controlled burning, personal evolution often needs a violent catalyst to create a glimmer of enlightenment. Alchemy is a cutting-edge collaboration with immersive projection designer Mark Bolotin of Hyphen-Hub, seconded by Edward Roth fashion designers Marco Pizzato and Nairi Barseh and Tony award-winning lighting designer Jeff Croiter.

Hurricane Deck (Monte) “Hurricane Deck is a piece of conflict and turmoil, emotional upheaval. Love gone wrong. The 4 couples embrace and combat simultaneously  seeking the truth and trying to regain trust.  Alternative endings have been created, each is left to the performers to choice at the conclusion of the piece of each performance. Will trust and love or doubt and enmity be that evenings outcome?”  ~Elisa Monte. Music by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang, one of the most highly-esteemed and performed American composers writing today. His works have been performed around the world and in many of the great concert halls.

Sand (Buglisi) is the first of Buglisi’s environmental trilogy. Set to Philip Glass’s brilliant and beautiful string quartet, the ballet is inspired by the beauty of the desert and the soil of the earth we so cherish for our existence.

Sacred Landscapes 1 (Buglisi/World Premiere) In a world in upheaval by climate change and economic turmoil, where the teachings of religion and science collide, we seek to rediscover and restore our ancient connection to the sacred landscapes that have grounded and inspired us. Set to a commissioned score by the visionary composer Paola Prestini with projection design by Jack Mehler, Buglisi’s new work, dedicated to the boundless flow of our planet’s water, explores the belief that sacred landscapes are passageways that facilitate access to a higher realm.

Elisa Monte Dance, Buglisi Dance Theatre and Jennifer Muller/the Works'  presentation at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts’ Theater Access Program. The Theater Access Program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations

Each of the five unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, and the following group pieces: Rainforest and New Work - 6/5 at 7:30, Secret Service & Garden Party 6/6 at 3pm, Walkaround Vermeer – 6/6 at 7:30pm, Waterstudy & Swatch – 6/7 at noon, and Ode & New Work – 6/7 at 4PM.

“…at first amazes and then glides into the mystical… dropping... This dance form, these artists, won’t be boxed in.”
 —The New York Times

Mikey & Jaer vs Rachet & Dread
Shellz & Lilbit vs Kat & Cindy

Following their sold-out, acclaimed run at Park Avenue Armory, the FLEXN phenomenon comes to New York Live Arts in its rawest form: the Battle. Featuring dancers from across the country, the Battle presents the ultimate forum for the boldest and baddest innovators to challenge and push each other to new extremes, revealing the latest moves and groundbreaking grooves where one winner takes all. 

Flex is the latest, genre-defining form of street dance evolved from the Jamaican bruk-up found in dance halls and reggae clubs in Brooklyn. Characterized by pausing, snapping, gliding, bone breaking, hat tricks, animation, and contortion, this electrifying phenomenon confronts issues of social injustice and the expressive capacity of urban dance like no form before it.

Four characters emerge, absorbed in duality and contradiction, pointing towards order yet prolonging, and ultimately celebrating, the chance to be alone. All four PNDT performers meld various and highly physical movement styles to create a dynamic exposure of how we navigate a disoriented existence. Featuring leading characters of the popular Punchdrunk production Sleep No More, Troy Ogilvie (named Top 25 to Watch by Dance Magazine in 2011) and Nick Bruder (2011 Falstaff Award for Best Principal Performance), AJ “The Animal” Jonez (Animal Animation Flex Artist) with original music composition and performance by Chris Lancaster (electro-cellist and former composer and music director for the Bill T.

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

Netta Yerushalmy - Helga And The Three Sailors

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

 

Hillel Kogan - We Love Arabs

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

Body Against Body (2011) returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched the career of Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of an iconoclastic artistic sensibility. As New York Magazine says, “The combination of brisk formality and a deeply sensual attack.was riveting decades ago and it’s riveting today.” Commissioned by the ICA/Boston.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The second part of the performance—Doing The Things We Want To—features a ritual bash celebrating Lou Reed and Kathy Acker, two New York grown, transgressive and still-revolutionary artists of music, spoken word, novels and film. Willner, Webb and a band of New York's finest (with Lee Ranaldo, Doug Wieselman and special guests) slap back and forth with selected works on Reed and Ackers' favorite subjects including sex, love, rage, death and phosphorescent humanity.

Vito Acconci’s design & architecture comes from another direction, from backgrounds of writing & art. His poems in the late 60’s treated language as matter (words to look at rather than through) & the page as a field to travel over; his performances in the early 70’s helped shift art from object to interaction; later in the 70’s, his installations turned museums & galleries into interactions between spaces & people; in the early 80’s, his architectural-units were meant to be transformed by users.

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

A panel discussion will follow that features Master Ren and a number of his notable students including  Sarth Calhoun, Hsia-Jung Chang, Ren Guangyi, Amanda Harmon, Jonathan Miller, Bill O'Connor, Dan Richman and Tony Visconti. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CO/LAB Theater Group is a non-profit dedicated to providing individuals with developmental disabilities a creative and social outlet through theater arts. 

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

The dances can be humorous, dramatic, lyrical or abstract, but always surprising. This showcase is a not to be missed opportunity to inspire children by exposing them to live performances created and performed by their peers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

In-process talk moderated by Yve Laris Cohen.

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

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

Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time. A Rite utilizes the social-historical context of the score as a point of departure, reflecting on the human condition-sacrifice, creative and spiritual death, and the individual against or with the community. Called “a serious, intricate, multidirectional centennial tribute to a work of art whose spell it deepens” (The New York Times) A Rite was commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with additional commissioning support provided by the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College.

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.

Body Against Body (2011) returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched the career of Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of an iconoclastic artistic sensibility. As New York Magazine says, “The combination of brisk formality and a deeply sensual attack.was riveting decades ago and it’s riveting today.” Commissioned by the ICA/Boston.

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

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

For Studio Series, they will present an in-progress showing of their newest project, Wet Clutch. Inspired by Hollywood cinema’s female heroes from the past 50 years, Wet Clutch explores portable material that can be used in outdoor spaces. The Cartel’s showing at Live Arts marks the first step in the process of what will ultimately become an explosive public dance experience.

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

Arabesque:

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

Music by Mercan Dede, Said Murad and Samer Ali.

Tango Unframed:

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

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

Three World Premieres by: Peter Quanz • Jay Donn • Michele Wiles

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Inspired by John Cage’s influential mid-20th Century work, Indeterminacy, in which Cage read 90 randomly sequenced one-minute stories interrupted by a chance musical score, Story/Time is performed in 70 minutes by 9 dancers, performing choreography from the Company’s 32-year history. Bill T. Jones has written 170 plus stories and collected others. Before every sequence, the stories, lights, sound and choreography are randomly selected through chance procedure.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Music, Lyrics and Book by Denver Casado & Betina Hershey 

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

The Children's Musical Theater Festival's presentation of The most epic birthday party ever at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts' Theater Access Program.
