Cynthia Hopkins will continue developing her newest work, A Living Documentary, through The Watermill Center’s Residency Program. A comedic, no-nonsense reflection on the trials and tribulations of earning a living as a professional theater artist in the 21st century, A Living Documentary intertwines elements of musical comedy, autobiography, documentary and fiction. Interspersing live interviews with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, the work poses myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City. In residence at WMC November 19 – December 11, Hopkins will present the work in-progress at WMC December 7, and, following a one-week technical residency in the Live Arts theater, will present the world premiere at New York Live Arts March 5, 2014.

Hopkins’ residency at the WMC in partnership with New York Live Arts reflects New York Live Arts’ commitment to expanding its Studio Series residency program through off-site institutional partnerships, offering high level resources and support for the artists they commission.

At New York Live Arts, A Living Documentary is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The Jerome Foundation, Foundation for Contemporary Art and by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund. The work was developed, in part, through a Suitcase Fund residency at Bunker, Ljublana, Slovakia, with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Public funding for The Watermill Center Artist Residency Program is provided by Suffolk County and is made possible by The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

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

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

Play and Play: an Evening of Movement and Music (2012) features a collection of works set to chamber music, including D-Man in the Waters, Spent Days Out Yonder and Continuous Replay, performed with a new musical score. All performances of the program in New York and on tour will be accompanied by live music.

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Rite (2013) represents an intriguing and powerful collaboration between two leading American directors and their companies. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time. 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.

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

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

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

Play and Play: an Evening of Movement and Music (2012) features a collection of works set to chamber music, including D-Man in the Waters, Spent Days Out Yonder, and Continuous Replay, performed with a new musical score. All performances of the program in New York and on tour will be accompanied by live music.

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

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

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

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

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

New Work for the Desert is New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning choreographer Beth Gill’s upcoming performance, which will premiere this spring at New York Live Arts. This evening length, impressionistic dance abstracts the themes of ambition, journey and love within an aesthetic world inspired by Trisha Brown’s 1987 masterpiece Newark and the natural landscape of the United States’ Southwest desert.

Collaborating artists include lighting designer Thomas Dunn and longtime composer Jon Moniaci, who received a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for his work on Gill’s Electric Midwife. Gill and Dunn are transforming New York Live Arts’ theater into a reflective white box space, which shifts through saturated color fields reminiscent of the desert’s visually dramatic transformations. Moniaci’s composition, which is performed live, further activates the visceral presence of the theater through vibration and the localization of sound. Immersed in this environment, each dancer struggles differently within the rigidity of the form, to claim gestures and unlock expression.

New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning performer and choreographer Kimberly Bartosik’s You are My Heat and Glare unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists. This evening-length work features a unique duet for Bartosik and her longtime collaborator, lighting designer Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Inspired by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water”, the work grapples with the rawness of intimacy, asking: What are we made of but hunger and rage? Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the extraordinary cast.

Described as a hybrid performance between theater, choreography and a social experiment, Serbian artists Saša Asentić and Ana Vujanović engage the audience through a social role play and live action game structure where audience members are, each one, actor, participant and catalyst for change. On Trial Together has been shown in Berlin, Germany and Novi Sad, Serbia and was developed, in part, through New York Live Arts’ Suitcase Fund international cultural exchange program.

On Trial Together was developed, in part, under the auspices of The Suitcase Fund, the international cultural exchange program of New York Live Arts, with support from The Trust for Mutual Understanding.

The April 10 performance will be live streamed in collaboration with live streaming startup 2ndline.tv.
 
The eagerly anticipated reconstruction of Son of Gone Fishin’ (1981), Brown’s first musical collaboration, features original music from Robert Ashley’s, Atalanta. According to Brown, Son of Gone Fishin’ reaches the “apogee of complexity in [her] work.” This diabolically complex choreographic structure is belied by the constant ebb and flow of six dancers accompanied by musical arrangements from orchestral parts of three operas in Ashley’s Atalanta. The performances at Live Arts will debut newly created costumes by original costume designer Judith Shea, inspired by her archival design notes. Archival notes from the original collaboration, featuring a set by Donald Judd, will also be presented online.

Also newly reconstructed, Solo Olos (1976) is a section of Brown’s Line Up, a series of dances created at a point in Brown’s choreographic career when she was exploring a concept she called “Pure Movement,” which denotes movement free of other connotations. Epitomizing the rigor and play in Brown’s work, Solo Olos utilizes a brilliant network of interconnected phrases danced both forwards and backwards. As a “Caller” gives directions to the performers, an impromptu composition is revealed. As described by Deborah Jowitt in The Village Voice, Solo Olos is as beautiful and subtly shaped as water rippling over stones. Like the title, the movements flow along, pause, and then reverse.”

Rogues (2011) was recently described as “[s]implest and best…[a]s they tipped, stepped, rotated and twisted, their dancing celebrated life rather than artifice” by Alastair Macaulay in The New York Times following its premiere at the Fall for Dance Festival. This duet for two men explores unison movement and aberration. With original music by Alvin Curran, costumes by Kay Voyce and lights by John Torres, Rogues  “enthrallingly display[s] how an impulse that begins in a shift of the torso or a lift of the arm can create a momentum that the body, effortlessly it seems, converts into a phrase of shape and texture” (The New York Times).

Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 (1980) is Brown’s “breathtaking” (The New York Times) collaboration with Japanese fog artist Fujiko Nakaya. This mysterious piece that flirts with perception and illusion features four dancers moving through Nakaya’s fog “cloud sculpture,” which creates sound as water passes through high-pressure nozzles. The movement reflects the delicate balance of the air surrounding the dancers, both constantly changing form and drifting off. Part of Brown’s “Unstable Molecular Structure” cycle, Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 features costumes by Judith Shea and lights by Beverly Emmons.

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

Body Against Body was comissioned by the ICA/Boston.

In i shot denzel, Acosta presents the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” The concept for this new work is to strip the work of past presences and create a physically “challenging” solo on his body exploring black masculinity within the context of contemporary or "classical" movement.
 
Dworman’s New York Live Arts Commission, macromen, zooms in, on a micro scale, to physical states that construct theatricality in the body. Balletic postures are affected by abstract qualities and textures that explore virtuosity on a molecular level.

Martita Abril
Ripping Up the Finish is inspired by the behavior of a plastic bag in motion, what provokes it to move and the different qualities it acquires from external forces.
 
Maximilian Balduzzi
REQUIEM/Imposter is a study on loss and transformation that challenges the inevitability of mortality.
 
Ben Grinberg & Nick Gillette
Communitas is a duet at the intersection of dance and theater which explores balance, stability and exhaustion.
 
A Monk’s Quantum Dinner with Andre is a fusion of krump, popping, contemporary and house vocabularies that physicalizes the intent and conversation at the quantum level of the body.
 
Leslie Parker
Crossroads/Gateways draws upon the sacred and traditional and examines the potential to affirm and reposition black identity in America.
 
Gabrielle Revlock
Halo is an intimate and sensual solo that explores the fields of energy around the dancing body through the use of a hula hoop.
 
 
The 2013-14 Fresh Tracks artists come from a diverse range of movement backgrounds, defining new terrain in contemporary dance, acrobatic physical theater, krump and popping.  These six emerging choreographers were selected by the 2013 Fresh Tracks audition panel Kyle Abraham, Paisid Aramphongphan, Ephrat Asherie, Leah Cox, Boo Froebel, Wendy Perron, Carla Peterson and Vicky Shick.

Donna Uchizono Company (DUC) presents new and reworked eveninglength works. Fire Underground, DUC’s newest work, draws from Uchizono’s harrowing experience of a complex international adoption process. Featuring a cast of five performers, the multi-layered work is designed as a series of “salon” style performances that illuminate the complex crises of our time and the interconnections that bind us as we witness the courage to be human. State of Heads, a work for three dancers that premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in 1999 and was last seen on the New York Live Arts stage last April as part of Live Ideas: The Worlds of Oliver Sacks, features an original sound-score by “Bessie” award-winning artist James Lo and explores the concept of disjointedness and the passage of time.

Choreographer Jérôme Bel’s Disabled Theater is a collaboration between Bel and 11 actors from Zurich’s Theater Hora, Switzerland’s best-known professional theater company comprised of actors with learning and mental disabilities. With Disabled Theater, Bel opens up a space where disability is not expelled from visual and discursive practices, nor hidden behind the screen of political correctness. Instead, he places it squarely at the center of a discourse that has a bearing on both the aesthetic and political dimensions.

Sparking both debate and praise across Europe, the work was a sensation at Documenta 13. Roberta Smith of the New York Times dubbed it “transcendent art,” adding that she “started shocked and disoriented and ended up completely caught up in it and grateful for what it revealed to me about what is often called ‘our common humanity.”

A new work by up and coming French dancer-choreographer Maud Le Pladec, DEMOCRACY is a part of a three-part series titled To Bang on a Can. The work explores the relationship between sound and gesture using atonality and breaks in form, and is performed to the live music of Julia Wolfe, one of the founders of the music group “Bang on a Can” and Italian composer, Francesco Filidei. This work, along with Alain Buffard’s, will be part of the month-long, multi-venue French-American Dance Festival taking place throughout the month of May 2014 in New York.

Big Dance Theater’s New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” nominated Ich, Kürbisgeist reflects their signature blend of performance, text and visual design. A collaboration with playwright Sibyl Kempson and the members of Big Dance Theater, and directed by Paul Lazar, Ich, Kürbisgeist, originally co-commissioned by Performance Space 122 and The Chocolate Factory, returns just in time for Halloween.
 
Kempson’s Ich, Kürbisgeist is set in a harsh quasi-medieval landscape facing destruction, populated by a community speaking a rigorous, specific and completely invented language. Every word is semi-recognizable: an amalgam of English, Swedish, German and Sid Ceasar. The language is as tough and unforgiving as the windswept, uncultivated landscape.
 
The five characters, costumed by visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra, boast of surviving prior catastrophes as they bitterly recount lost times. They sing; they dance; they harvest pumpkin seeds. All the while, they feel threatened by vaguely understood, external forces from which there is no protection. They are grounded in fear and doom.

Everything looks like something. But apparently you can’t judge a book by its cover. Despite the interplay and disjunction between essence and appearance, all artistic work uses its perceptual surface (what it looks like, sounds like, feels like, …) as a means of transmission. The aesthetics of a work of art speak to the value systems of its author(s), which are in turn formed through the construction of such eternally slippery terms as beauty.

Within between is a new evening-length work by Jasperse in collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler. Jasperse seeks both to embrace and to resist the habits of his own history, to create a cross pollination or catalytic mating of sensibilities, where the work emerges out of the space between what seems to be distinct terrains.

May 28 Come Early Conversation: John Jasperse and Ariel Osterweis, PhD discuss Within Between

A response to Dig Deep is Arkadi Zaides’ dance interpretation of Julia Wolfe’s composition, Dig Deep.

The performance will be preceded by a series of short talks on body and music featuring writer and filmmaker Elena Mannes and music philosopher Peter Szendy.

First performed in April 2012 at the Théâtre de Nîmes in France, Alain Buffard’s Baron Samedi is named after a Haitian “Vaudou” spirit. A tutelary figure for the work, Baron Samedi invokes ghosts, extracts the perfect dancing body and is a symbol of visibility in life and invisibility in death. Featuring an international cast including Nadia Beugré, David Thomson and Will Rawls (among others), Buffard continues his longstanding connection with music as thematic source material, harnessing the music of Kurt Weill performed by live musicians to bring Baron Samedi to life.

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

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

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

NuMoRune Collaborative's presentation of A YARD ABROAD - An Immigration Narrative at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts' Theater Access Program.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Elisa Monte Dance and Jennifer Muller/The Works Join Forces to present three shared program performances of Monte / Muller MOVE! featuring five pieces—two world premieres, 18 dancers, five noted designers and live performances by composer/cellist Julia Kent. These two experienced and distinguished choreographers create work with powerful and highly original voices. Now at the height of their creative careers, they are presenting a diverse selection of work, including recent premieres and brand-new works.
 
As choreographers, they are distinctly different but share the sensibility of creating work that combines virtuosic movement with an expressive edge that touches the heart – work that dances full out yet speaks of both individual experiences and shared humanity. 
 
The 18 extraordinary performers push physical capability, standing out as individuals yet working in cohesive ensembles. Monte/Muller MOVE! offers the opportunity to experience two acclaimed dance companies together on one stage.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre celebrates its thirteenth annual performance season with the world premiere of It’s a Game, an evening-length dance theatre work that brings a chess game to life through character, movement, line, pattern, relationship and human drama. Inspired by the work of Alexander McQueen and the magic of Harry Potter, the piece creates a moving fantasy of power dynamics, competition and strategy. It’s a Game sparks a rich palette of emotions and meaning via Selwyn’s vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, gesture, energy, release, touch and balance.

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

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

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

It features an original score entitled “Together” by Vignoulle and “Al Maghfera” by Hugues De Courson with sound designed by Dan Agosto & Johnny Nevin.

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

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

Repertory includes D-Man in the Waters (1989), Bill T. Jones's joyful tour de force and a genuine modern dance classic, Ravel: Landscape or Portrait (2012), a new work that reflects the wistful and melancholic sentiment of Ravel's String Quartet in F Major as well as its precision and restraint and the classical Continuous Replay (1977, revised 1991), performed with a new score composed by Jerome Begin. Every performance features live music.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Rite (2013) represents an intriguing and powerful collaboration between two leading American directors and their companies. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time.

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

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

New York Live Arts 3rd Floor Studio

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

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

A Rite is an intriguing and powerful collaboration between artists Bill T. Jones and Anne Bogart and their respective companies – Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company. Coinciding with the one-hundredth anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Jones and Bogart combine forces to explore the impact of this revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Driven by a distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework, Tanowitz’s dances elegantly layer full-bodied dancing with a clear visual design. In The Spectators, Tanowitz continues her investigation of dance steps as objects and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements, paring them down, setting them on edge, blowing them up in a bird’s eye view, running them past one another and leading them forward and askew. 

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

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

poem premiered at New York Live Arts in November 2012.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Body Against Body returns to Bill T. Jones’s roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years.

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

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

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

Placed metaphorically in the ruins of a collapsed theater, OTRO TEATRO is achugar's current search for another kind of theater; a ritual of becoming; an occasion for communion. OTRO TEATRO, which translates both to "another theater" and "other theater" in achugar's native Spanish, is a dark rite of passage from destruction to rebuilding. It is a dance that is meant to be felt as it is seen, giving voice to the arcane spirit and desire of our uncivilized bodies.
