Co-presented with Performa as part of Performa 13.
 
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.”

Nov 14 at 6:30pm Come Early Conversation: Otherly Abled Bodies in Performance, Bill Shannon (Visual Artist and Choreographer) in conversation with Sunaura Taylor (Painter and Activist for Disability and Animal Rights).

Nov 16 Stay Late Discussion: Theater, Discomfort, and the Making of  Disabled Theater, Carla Peterson, Artistic Director of New York Live Arts in dialogue with Jérôme Bel. 

This presentation of Disabled Theater is made possible, in part, with support from Pro Helvetia and FACE, French American Cultural Exchange.

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


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

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

Oct 31 Stay Late Halloween Dance & Costume Party with special guest DJ Dway. Come to Big Dance Theaters’ opening night dressed in your wildest Holloween drag and win fun prizes, including two free tickets to Fresh Tracks. 

Nov 7 Stay Late Discussion: Big Dance Theater discusses the process of restaging Ich, Kürbisgeist, moderated by Carla Peterson, Artistic Director of New York Live Arts.

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

May 29 Stay Late Discussion: Means of Transmission, Tere O'Connor in conversation with John Jasperse

Please join us on May 31 from 1 - 4pm for Shared Practice with John Jasperse. For more information click here.

The work is made possible, in part, by a commission from The American Dance Festival. Additional support is contributed by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation Late Stage Production Fund.

Generous support is also contributed by MAP Fund, a project of Creative Capital; New Music USA through the Commissioning Music USA and Live Music for Dance programs; the James Robison Foundation; the Peter S. Reed Foundation; the Harkness Foundation for Dance; the New York State Council on the Arts; the National Endowment for the Arts; and the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs.

A response to Dig Deep is Arkadi Zaides’ dance interpretation of Julia Wolfe’s composition, Dig Deep. Distinguished by an intense physicality and a relentless power that pushes performers to extremes and demands attention from the audience, Zaides explores a somatic response to his personal experience of immigration, homelessness and in-betweenness. The performance will be preceded by a series of short talks on body and music featuring writer and filmmaker Elena Mannes and music philosopher Peter Szendy.

Inspired by the quatrains of Persian poet and Sufi mystic Djalâl ad-Dîn Rûmî, Ha!, the latest creation by Bouchra Ouizguen, is an exploration of madness. Using the same working method that led to the success of Madame Plaza (presented at New York Live Arts in September 2012 as part of Voices of Strength), Ouizguen returned to Morocco, her homeland, gaining additional inspiration from the cultural terrain that has enriched the movement, ritual, singing and language in this new work.

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. The Theater Access program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations.

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.

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

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

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

Together We Stand by Manuel Vignoulle, formerly a member of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet and Geneva Ballet.  Together We Stand was created for the World Debut of 10 Hairy Legs in November 2012, and explores the warrior ethic. It features an original score entitled “Together” by Vignoulle and “Al Maghfera” by Hugues De Courson with sound designed by Dan Agosto & Johnny Nevin. 

Pillar of Salt – This New York Premiere by Randy James reveals the complex inter-relationships among five men – from vulnerability to inter-dependence to surrender with poignancy.

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

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

Performed with live musicians, Play and Play: An evening of movement and music applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time.  Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Ravel this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together. Repertory includes D-Man in the Waters (1989), Bill T. Jones's joyful tour de force and a genuine modern dance classic, 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.

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

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.

Steven Reker is a Brooklyn-based musician, choreographer and performer, and the primary songwriter and director of People Get Ready. Since moving to New York in 2006, he has worked in the capacity of dancer, choreographer or musician with many artists, including Yoshiko Chuma, Jeff McMahon, David Byrne, John Jesurun, Brian Rogers, Miranda July, Jodi Melnick, Annie-B Parson, Fred Thomas and Yasuko Yokoshi. His own work has been presented at The Kitchen, Danspace Project, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Rooftop Films and AUNTS.

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

poem premiered at New York Live Arts in November 2012.

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

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

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

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

“Duet has made me change my perception on what dance has to be and ultimately opened my eyes to the possibilities that group collaborations can bring to a single work. It also reinforced the importance of being able to work with another individual.”

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Lance Gries’ Immanent Field, a collaborative work with Juliette Mapp and Diane Madden, is a trio that begins with the belief that there exists a primary field of conscious energy that pervades and connects everything. How do dancers, as masters of moving consciousness into action and form, access and create from this potentiality? How do time, space and content become differentiated through this active exchange? In Immanent Field, Gries in interested in creating a dynamic realization between what the performers and public sense as immaterial and witness as its material manifestation in dance as an art form. Using these explorations as a jumping off point, Gries views these seemingly intangible elements as essential formal ones, organizing them into a dance so they become the vital gestures of a choreography of experience. 

In-Process Talks moderated by Jodi Melnick (Friday) and RoseAnne Spradlin (Saturday).

The Studio Series offers an opportunity for research and development in a creative residency format, providing resources of time, space and a commission. The Studio Series is a research laboratory for physical explorations and new movement investigations with a focus on process, not final performance/product. The “performances” are intended to be informal public showings to share ideas with an audience in the intimate working space of the studio.

Burr Johnson’s newest work in progress, Two Poetic Worlds, consists of the second draft of a group dance for four fronts. Departing from his previous practice of guiding artistic creation in response to the spaces in which works would eventually be performed, Johnson uses the audience’s seating as a starting point. Johnson, a “striking” (The New York Times) dancer known for creating “promising choreography” with “delicious qualities” (The New York Times), explores themes such as physical implication of audience members, proximity and diversity of vantage points in his current work.

Tara O’Con’s Frame explores ideas surrounding the role of cinematic tone in the performance of movement. Three months into the first phase of choreographic exploration, O’Con approaches the work as a cinematographer might approach a film. How are actions framed by the space? When are the performers zoomed in and zoomed out from the viewers' point of view? When is the duration of images sustained versus choppy? How do all of those factors affect the experience of building and releasing tension? Analyzing how the performer’s focus guides that of the viewer, the work also questions how sustained images or durational movement can resonate when cut by abrupt stillness or change.

In-Process talks moderated by Donna Faye Burchfield and Craig T. Peterson

Mutually interested in ideas of queerness and heroism, Poe and Zaritt work toward the creation of a performance world that explores danger, questioning the contrast between closeness and loneliness, and sincerity versus hyperbole. Initiated by the desire to see what happens when two strangers create work together, their creative process involves personal self-discovery within the framework of a partnership; exploring the meaning of ‘self’ within the context of the duet form. Through movement, Poe and Zaritt approach one another’s moving bodies as unknown entities, questioning the image of the superhero and juxtaposing it with that of its antithesis: the failure, the victim, the fallen.

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

World Premiere
With an opening performance by Cynthia Oliver

Born in Burkina Faso, choreographer and performer Souleymane Badolo’s African heritage is a driving force in his work. Badolo's newest work, BARACK, was created as an acknowledgement towards the individuals who have helped him since he moved from Burkina Faso to the U.S. four years ago, and the title of the work loosely translates as “gratitude” in his native Gurunsi. Also on the program, BuudouBADOOBADOLO is inspired by Badolo’s rich family legacy as it traces the journey of his great-great-grandfather; the lessons his father taught him; and the responsibility he feels to his own son about their ancestry.

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

Featuring Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie, Franklin Diaz, Megan Kendzior, Michal Samama, Molly Poerstel and Parul Shah.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Selfie, 2013
Gwen Welliver
Mixed-media "selfies"

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

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

Inaugural Resident Comissioned Artist World Premiere

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

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

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

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

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

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

World Premiere

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

Nov 30 Stay Late Discussion: Interrogations: What is this dance doing? What are you reading in it? The audience asks questions of the dance. Moderated by Jenn Joy.

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

World Premiere

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

Co-presented with PS122's Coil Festival

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

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

COIL is Performance Space 122's annual mid-winter festival of contemporary performance from across the U.S. and around the globe.

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

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

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

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

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