Just You (1993)
(originally titled It Takes Two) was first created by Bill T. Jones in 1989 for the duet company
 of Steven Koester and Terry Creach, who were craving something informed by these pivotal duets between Jones and Zane. The work was revived in 1993 for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, where the name changed to Just You. Here the original idiosyncratic, formalist concerns were placed at the service of a more theatrical, poetic purpose, made all the more poignant by its being danced to the delicious interpretation of standards by Ray Charles and Betty Carter.
 
Shared Distance (1982) was created concurrently with the trilogy of defining duets made and performed by Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane: Monkey Run Road, Blauvelt Mountain and Valley Cottage. Originally made for Bill T. Jones and Julie West, this duet plays on the masculine and feminine and the reversal of these gender-specific roles.

Bill T. Jones and his company are creating an evening-length work, Analogy (working title). Jones is using the character Ambros Adelwarth from W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants and an oral history Jones conducted with Dora Amelan, 95 year-old French survivor of WWII. Dora Amelan's story and Sebald's Ambros Adelwarth (a quasi fictional creation) will serve as two parallel streams of investigation in search of equivalences. The equivalences Jones is in search of are notions of personal identity, duty, love, belief and the instinct for survival. Analogy (working title) strives to create a multi-dimensional experience in which the dancers suggest the process of memory, “the then and now,” “the us and them,” through their bodies and voices.

Recognized by The New York Times as creating one of Alastair Macaulay's TOP TEN DANCE FAVORITES OF 2013, ZviDance will present its newest work, Surveillance, for five performances only at New York Live Arts June 11-14, 2014. Experience the groundbreaking collaboration of contemporary dance, interactive video design and animation as ZviDance explores how we respond to the omnipresence of this technology in our daily lives. Video projections and animations designed by Hertog Nadler will be live-streamed throughout the evening - blurring the lines between voyeur and exhibitionist. Composer Scott Killian, in collaboration with chanteuse Alison Clancy and hip-hop artist Wilkis Ideology Figuereo, will create an aural landscape that explores and exploits sounds and music that are both familiar to us - and yet, oftentimes unheard. Ultimately, Surveillance is a multi-disciplinary piece which reflects on the ever-increasing use of surveillance technology in our contemporary lives.

ZviDance is honored to host a special evening of dance and culture on June 12 kindly supported by Israel's Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in NY; and in partnership with our friends at the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and Isramerica. Tickets include premium seats to ZviDance's SURVEILLANCE, followed by a post-performance reception in the New York Live Arts lobby. (Tix $45.00).
* Guests interested in attending event must purchase the $45.00 tix in order to be admitted to the post-performance reception.

ZviDance's presentation of Surveillance 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.

[event_url] => monte_buglisi_muller [event_description] =>

Monte/Buglisi/Muller LIVE! offers the opportunity to experience three acclaimed dance companies together on one stage, in four shared programs featuring five pieces: three world premieres; 35 dancers; and four noted designers.

These three 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 pieces. 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.

Butterflies and Demons (Buglisi) grew out of Buglisi’s ardent concern for social justice and a collaboration with the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women and FBI agent Julian Sher’s story “Somebody’s Daughter.”

Lonely Planet (Monte) explores the growing isolation that proliferates in contemporary society, which seems to grow, not diminish, despite global inter-connectivity through technology and the ever-expanding communications options available.

Miserere Nobis (Muller/World Premiere), set to the music of the Allegeri: MiserereAgnus Dei Qui Tollis Peccata Mundi, is an entreaty for mercy and grace. In an age of unspeakable conflict and cruelty, each of us asks forgiveness for all of us.

Untitled (Buglisi/World Premiere) The young composer Justin Dello Joio approached Buglisi with a proposal to explore a composition by Joio as well as one by his father (Norman Dello Joio), who composed music for Martha Graham’s Seraphic Dialogue and Diversion of Angels.

Whew! (Muller/World Premiere) looks at the value and vagaries of industrious effort. With upbeat humor, unexpected shifting moods and awkward relationships, the piece comments on the disassociated lifestyle that stems from the non-stop activity of 70 hour work weeks.

Monte/Buglisi/Muller LIVE! 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.

Culminating a year’s work with world-renowned dance educator Ellen Robbins, each student creates her/his own solo, steeped in the unmistakable individualism that resides in every child. Their works span a variety of theater experiences, including those that are humorous, dramatic, lyrical, minimal and abstract. Music selections range from Hayden to Bartok, Cage, T. Monk and Ratatat.

Each of the five unique concerts include one or two of the following group pieces: Garden Party, Space Fantasy, Towel Dance, Piecework, Secret Service, Carnival of the Animals and Unzipped, as well as two new works created by the older students.

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

The Suitcase Fund hosts Isack Peter Abeneko and Nshoma Nkwabi, two emerging choreographers from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for a week-long research residency in NYC from April 12-21, 2014. Please join us for an informal showing in the New York Live Arts studio on Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30pm. A short discussion with the artists will follow the showing.

Isack Peter Abeneko performs 3 Macho, a solo work that provokes and discusses political and religious confusion around Christian, Muslim and various African religions to reflect on our past, present and future. “Religion is a particular system of faith, belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, specially a personal God or Gods.” Where does the religious confusion come from? Where do the different tribes/people in certain communities come from? Do you remember The Past, your past, our past, his/her past? The Past to the Present truly tells everything that is going to or will be happening in the Future. Look at your Family, Friends, Community positively - tell them who you are, how you like or love things to be, talk and solve your issues. 3 Macho also means three eyes in Swahili. Use your third eye to speak, report, observe and change. Nshoma Nkwabi performs a solo entitled CHANGAMOTO. The title is from the Swahili word for "Challenge".

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.

This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

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.”

 

/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).

The Suitcase Fund’s winter/spring events continue in April, with a Research Presentation by Marijana Cvetković Marković from Serbia and Miki Braniste from Romania on Tuesday, April 15 at 6:00pm. Visiting from STATION Service for Contemporary Dance in Serbia and Nomad Dance Academy, a network of Balkan arts professionals, Cvetković Marković will conduct a two-week research residency in NYC from April 5 - 20. Her research has the goal to improve knowledge, develop information flow between New York, Serbia and the Balkan Region and establish artistic and institutional partnerships for new projects. The information gathered will be instrumental in the development of STATION’s new programs in contemporary dance as well as for the university course taught by Cvetković Marković.

Miki Braniste, director of the TEMPS D'IMAGES Festival Cluj, Romania will be in NYC from April 12 - 26 through the Gabriela Tudor Fellowship, created by the Gabriela Tudor Foundation and hosted in partnership with Allyson Green & New York University/Tisch School for the Arts. Braniste will present the dynamics of the independent performing arts scene in Romania, connecting the development of the artistic scene with the social transformation of contemporary Romania. The fragility of the local democracy is reflected in the issues presented in the performances but also in the production work. So, can the artistic scene develop beyond the political and economic scene? Can an artist be only an artist? Because these questions are appropriate beyond the current context in Romania, her research during this residency will take into account New York political art history and also today's arts movements. Braniste is interested in meeting artists engaged in the social development of their community, to discover not only success stories but also productive failures that can inspire. (The second part of the Gabriela Tudor Fellowship project involves U.S. artist Catherine Galasso going to Bucharest, Romania for two-weeks from June 15 - 29.)

Dance of Precatiat (working title) will focus on the work of Workers Dance Movement in New York City in the 1930’s. The movement was a specific phenomenon in modern dance in the USA. It was formed by working class and immigrant dancers who were attracted to both the modern dance world and radical political activity. The research will examine the work of the Workers Dance League, New Dance Group and other groups and individuals whose focus was on political choreography, human condition, and struggle for social change.

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. The Spectators continues Tanowitz’s investigation of dance steps as objects, and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements.

Story/ (2013), the newest addition to the Company's Play and Play programcontinues the Company's exploration of the concepts used in 2012's Story/Time. Set to Schubert's Death and the Maiden, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interpreted by the music, thus crafting a lively conversation between the quartet and the choreography. The work will be performed to live music.

In his new work Analogy (working title) for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Bill T. Jones is in pursuit of the tantalizing promise of comparisons in lives experienced privately in time and place but are shared across generations and bodies publicly. Utilizing the writing style of W.G. Sebald, the compelling stories of Ambros Adelwarth in Sebald’s The Emigrants and family member Dora Amelan, Franz Schubert lieder, modern folk songs and new music by Ted Coffey, Jones is working to create a prismatic narrative in which the dancers, décor, text and music relate memory and histories both personal and universal, disparate and analogous. This work will premiere at Montclair State University as part of the Peak Performance Series on June 18, 2015.

New York Live Arts will observe the occasion by devoting its second Live Ideas to exploring the continuing pertinence of the achievement and the thinking of the prophetic author of seminal works like Go Tell It on the Mountain (1953), Giovanni’s Room (1956), and The Fire Next Time (1963).

As with our 2013 survey of The Worlds of Oliver Sacks, this edition of the humanities festival will feature lectures, panels, performances and a full range of artistic responses.

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.


From once 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.

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, a solo created and performed by achugar, 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.

Excerpts from You are my heat and glare and a new work-in-progress.

Suggested age for this work is 10 year and older.

“What are we made of but hunger and rage?” is a question provoked by Anne Carson’s poetic essay “The Anthropology of Water” and explored by “Bessie” award-winner Kimberly Bartosik in You are my heat and glare. This evening-length work unfolds in a series of viscerally provocative, mixed-genre duets for dancers, designers and voice artists, including a duet for light and body featuring Bartosik and her longtime collaborator Roderick Murray, who joins her onstage. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marc Mann and singers Gelsey Bell and Dave Ruder complete the cast.

In i shot denzel, Acosta presents the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” The idea for this new work is to strip the work of other presences and create a physically “challenging” solo on his body exploring blackness
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.

Excerpts from Energizer, Found Object  and Desert Sea. 

Energizer, a quartet featuring music by Mark Freedman and originally commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop in 1980, returns to the public eye in its entirety for the first time since 1982. Found Object is a new ensemble work commissioned by New York Live Arts featuring text instructions by John Guare, Joy Harjo and Rudy Wurlitzer; music by Erin Gee. The choreography of Desert Sea uses the meander of Navajo blanket weaving as an influence – the up, across, down, across, always at right angles- to give an impression of movement and the travel of people.

Intertwining elements of musical comedy, autobiography, documentary and fiction, A Living Documentary intersperses live interviews with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, all the while asking myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City.

In New Work for the Desert Beth Gill teams up with performers Danielle Goldman, Jennifer Lafferty, Heather Lang, Marilyn Maywald, Kayvon Pourazar and Stuart Singer and lighting designer Thomas Dunn to build a space in which light is alive, space is vast and the body struggles through form, gesture and contact to express something real and fictitious, old and new, foreign and familiar... all at the same time.

Excerpts from Fire Underground.

Fire Underground, DUC’s newest work that premiered at New York Live Arts in 2013, 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.

Join us as CO/LAB brings art to life on stage! This fall our actors explored the fundamentals of improvisation and acting and over the course of the semester, we devised scenes around a painting, sculpture or photograph.  We took inspiration from existing material and then let our imaginations soar! Through this process, we focused on building characters, environments and dialogue while supporting each scene as an ensemble. Each actor has a chance to take on the role of actor, write and director throughout the devising process, creating a show that is completely their own. We are excited to share this piece, Sunday in the park with CO/LAB with family, friends, and community members.

Noctua, Corvus, Hydra, Filis is a collage made from ink on Nepal paper with mica and methylcellulose glue. The mural features Hydra, the water snake (the largest constellation in the sky), with Corvus, the crow, Noctua, the owl, and Filis, the cat.

Five of the selections will be pieces from a larger work composed by Aaron Irwin which are inspired by the twelve published short stories by Breece D’J Pancake. Breece (Dexter John) Pancake (1952-1979), was an American short story author who was a native of West Virginia. He wrote one published book of short stories that was published posthumously after he shot himself at the age of 26. Pancake’s stories lay out a world located in the hills of West Virginia – “the pockets of neglected farm and mining country where people lose their livelihoods, their friends and lovers, their land and their birthrights, but remain stubbornly hewn in place”. Critical praise for his work has been nearly universal. Critics have found parallels between his work and that of Flannery O'Connor, Sherwood Anderson, John Steinbeck, James Joyce, and Ernest Hemingway.

These selections include:
Trilobites
A Room Forever
The Honored Dead
The Scrapper
Time and Again

Critically acclaimed saxophonist, multi-woodwind player, and composer, Aaron Irwin has emerged as a new and unique voice of his generation. His debut album Into the Light was hailed by the New Yorker magazine as being one of the ten best jazz recordings of 2006 alongside such artists such as Ornette Coleman, Joe Lovano, and Paul Motian. His playing has been described by Jazz Times as “generat[ing] thoughtful dialogs, crunchy little grooves, and moments of great emotive power.”

He can be heard on concert stages, jazz clubs, dive bars, and Broadway pit orchestras. He is on faculty teaching woodwind classes at the British International School in Manhattan, Bank Street School and Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. He also was featured in jazz author Cicily Janus’ new 2010 book The New Face of Jazz (Billboard Books) and has a new CD, Ordinary Lives, coming out this fall on the Fresh Sound/New Talent label. www.AaronIrwin.com

Trombonist Matthew McDonald has performed at numerous jazz festivals and conferences, including the Spoleto Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival, Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, and IAJE. Since moving to New York in 2003, he has performed with many different ensembles including the Max Weinberg Big Band, Smoke Big Band, Birdland Big Band, Fat Cat Big Band, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and Ken Peplowski’s Kingdom of Swing. In 2007, he was invited to perform with his own quartet in Manizales and Medellin, Colombia as one of the “Promising Artists of the 21st Century.” He received his Bachelor of music at DePaul University in Chicago, his Masters of Music from the Manhattan School of Music, as well as receiving his Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School, studying with Wycliffe Gordon. He maintains a busy schedule as a sideman for many of New York’s finest bands and ensembles

Jazz guitarist Pete McCann has been an integral part of the New York City scene for 20 years. He currently leads an exciting new group of New York's finest jazz artists on his latest CD, Extra Mile, on Nineteen-Eight Records. McCann's other releases, Most Folks, You Remind Me of Someone, Parable, have been widely praised by top jazz critics.

McCann is one of the first-call sidemen in New York. He works in several groups including the Patti Austin band, Grace Kelly Quintet, Chris Tarry Quintet, Melissa Stylianou group, Dan Willis Sextet, Aimee Allen Trio, and Alison Wedding's group. Pete has performed with some of the greats in jazz: Kenny Wheeler, Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz, Kenny Garrett, Peter Erskine, Gary Thomas, Greg Osby, Brian Blade, and the Maria Schneider Orchestra. He has appeared on over 60 CDs including: Almost Certainly Dreaming, Chris Tarry group; I Think It's Going To Rain Today, Curtis Stigers; The Other Side of Ellington, The Palmetto All-Stars; Standard Wonder (The Music of Stevie Wonder), Dave Pietro; Round 'Bout Now, George Schuller; andPhase 2, Mahavishnu Project.

Pete's playing encompasses a wide variety of musical styles and genres -- Straight-ahead, Post-Bop, Avant-Garde, Latin, Jazz-Rock Fusion. He has performed throughout the US, Canada and Europe from clubs to jazz festivals, musicals, award shows, and even an opera.

ACB Dance Company is an emerging dance company. This performance was made possible in part by Career Transition for Dancers (CT4D).  ACB Dance Company would like to dedicate this show to CT4D in order to raise awareness about their organization and help dancers in the NYC dance community.

The performance consists of three different acts, featuring six pieces from the company’s repertoire. Performed by ten dancers from the ACB Dance Company and guest artists, each piece is varied from the next and is compelling on its own.

The program for the evening is as follows:

Accused (Variation B) Music: Double Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Orchestra by Philip Glass

Heroic Departure Music: Atlas of Somewhere (On the Way to Howland Island):11.Islanded in a Stream of Stars; Contemporaneous & David Bloom, on Stream of Stars-Music of Dylan Mattingly

“The stars seemed near enough to touch and never before have I seen so many. I always believed the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, but I was sure of it that night.”-Amelia Earheart

Lifeline Music: Adiemus Variations 1-111, Karl Jenkins “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”-Aristotle

Banshee’s Lamentation Music: Lyric Trio, Op. 710:1.Red Darkness; Carson Cooman

Tintinnabuli Music: Tabula Rasa; Arvo Part

“No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” -John Donne, 1624

From the Latin tintinnabulum, a bell, Tintinnabuli is a compositional style created by the Estonian composer Arvo Part.

A piece about rhythm, harmony and destruction, transcendental preparatory exercise no. 6 “while in a vigil through pastoral antiquity, so the forest trembles” represents a return to the history of theater, revisiting its dramaturgical evolution from Greek Drama to Wagner’s operas. For the Studio Series showing, Ulerio will present the work in its early stages of the creative process, opening it up to commentary. A recollection of material and ideals which Ulerio has been exploring over the course of the past two years, the movement vocabulary draws from Dominican Folklore as well as rhythmical clashes and similarities within the Cunningham Technique’s approach to movement.

Sister to a Fiend (working title) will be a new, ritualistic dance for three performers that reveals the secret and magic rites of a closed culture of three potent, feminine and liminal creatures and the psychic landscape they occupy. 

Sister to a Fiend, collides the dance form with “known cultures/almost references.” Oblique inspirations (the “almost references”) include dance scenes from films, including the strange and awkward, sexy dance from Vampyros Lesbos, and the solo at the lonely disco in Claire Denis’s film, Beau Travail; the work of conceptual clothing designer Martin Margiela; and Mary Shelley's FrankensteinSister to a Fiend will be performed by Erin Beneze, Ashley Handel and Rebecca Warner.

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).

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

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

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.
