Quentin's work made its debut during a blizzard. Kathy's was up against the Superbowl. Both are witty, exceptional, must-see projects that we are pleased to bring back to the stage for one night only. Kathy Wasik’s "Granny Knot" focuses on transitions. It attempts to turn what would normally be the connective tissue of a work into the meat and bones of the piece. The work challenges performer and viewer alike to ask how we distinguish between a landmark and a transition, and what happens when we invert our value systems. Performed by Erin Cairns and Kathy Wasik. Quentin Burley Dance Group presents an evening-length work inspired by animation, surrealism, and sitcom humor. The piece analyzes how human movement is illustrated in media and recreates it on stage in a cinematic structure. Through virtuosic movement fantasies coupled with over acted pretension, this sardonic mess of live performance will titillate, humor, and raise a wry smile.

There’s a new dance-innovator on the block and his first solo show comes to the downtown scene from Lincoln Center. ANDREW HARPER CHOREOGRAPHY premieres at 13th Repertory Theater with an Ode to Vaudeville Song & Dance ONE WEEK ONLY: Thursday – Saturday, May 5 – 7 @ 8:00 pm and Sunday, May 8 @ 3:00 pm. 13th Street Repertory, 50 West 13th Street, NYC https://www.artful.ly/store/events/8801 After a successful workshop performance at Lincoln Center, Andrew Harper brings his stunning tribute to vaudeville to the legendary 13th Street Rep for one week only. Combining theatre, dance, and history, Song & Dance follows a dysfunctional band of vaudeville performers as they attempt to put on a show in a world that is all too short on time, money, and interest. Choreographer Andrew Harper takes creative cues from these limitations to build a unique and richly detailed world stocked with contemporary reincarnations of classic vaudevillian acts: a cut-throat sister act, a soulful troubadour, a child star on the verge of womanhood, a magician running out of tricks, and a lonely ventriloquist with his absent dummy. Harper peppers his works with ideas culled from his international journey as a dance and his recent success as a choreographer at venues like Lincoln center and The Cirkus Theatre Project. Harper and his troupe use the vaudeville show experience as a framework to examine their own experiences as performers and to explore the lines where backstage meets onstage, rehearsed meets improvised, and performer meets person. Song & Dance gives the audience a look inside the minds of the characters as their pressures, successes, failures, joys, pains, dreams, and fears leave the wings and take the stage for the first time. That’s where the show really begins! ONE WEEK ONLY: Thursday – Saturday, May 5 – 7 @ 8:00 pm and Sunday, May 8 @ 3:00 pm. 13th Street Repertory, 50 West 13th Street, NYC https://www.artful.ly/store/events/8801 Andrew Harper is a freelance dancer and choreographer based in NYC. Most recently, he has danced with Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, Oui Danse, the Glimmerglass Festival, Hawaii Opera Theatre, and Exit 12 Dance Company and was a recipient of the 2013-2014 Kenan Fellowship at Lincoln Center Education. He has been commissioned to create work for the Columbia Ballet Collaborative and his work has also been seen at the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School, the Glimmerglass Festival, Reynolda House Museum of American Art, and The Cirkus Theatre Project (a UNCSA/Cirque du Soleil partnership). Harper holds a BFA in ballet performance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. In 2016, Harper will have residencies at UNCSA and University of Saint Joseph, produce an evening length version of his 2014 work Song and Dance in NYC, and travel to the south of France to perform in Francesca Zambello’s Candide at Opera Bordeaux and Theatre du Capitole.

Described by The Washington Post as “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe” and by The New York Times as “one of the great companies of the world,” the Martha Graham Dance Company returns to Meany Hall on their 90th Anniversary Tour. A pioneer of modern dance, Martha Graham stands alongside Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, George Balanchine and Coco Chanel as an icon of 20th-century modernism. She revolutionized dance with her unorthodox movement language and socially charged exploration of spiritual and emotional themes. The company continues to foster Graham’s spirit of ingenuity, inspiring new generations of choreographers and dance lovers. Program to include Nacho Duato’s new work, Rust, with an all-male chorus; Lamentation Variations by Kyle Abraham and others; a new work by Marie Chouinard; and Graham's Acts of Light.

SOLA is an evening of solo dances choreographed for and by women. Curated by University of South Florida assistant professor Andee Scott, the concert showcases the work of female dance artists from around the country, with Elizabeth Weil Bergmann, Amy Chavasse, Tzveta Kassabova, Bliss Kohlmyer, Pamela Pietro, and Andee Scott performing self-choreographed work, and Mary Williford-Shade performing the work of Ursula Payne. Celebrating the power of women in dance, each of the solo performances is an expression of strength, an eloquent exercise in portraiture, and a continuation of a rich tradition of strong female solo artists following in the footsteps of artists like Isadora Duncan and Loie Fuller. SOLA is the inaugural performance produced by Dance Linkages, a project Andee Scott created in 2014, whose mission is to build a contemporary network of artists connecting within and across disciplines and geographies to develop, perform, and tour new work. The performance premiered in Tampa, FL at the University of South Florida and toured to New York, Michigan, Texas, and Vermont throughout 2014-15. Performances in 2016 include the Sarasolo Festival in Sarasota, FL, Out of the Loop Festival in Dallas, TX, and the Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA. This performance project is an opportunity to bring together high caliber professional artists to not only produce an evening of stunning dance, but also to create a new model for touring dance that creatively responds to current issues of funding scarcity within the arts.

Bryn Cohn + Artists makes their “homecoming” with a pioneering evening of dance, theater, original music, scenic design and an exciting intermission exhibition. The company, who has quickly gained recognition for their risk-taking worlds and emotional performances, will present a bold and memorable program with the world premiere of HOME and the long awaited West Coast debut of Skin. Two performances take place on Friday, May 6 + Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 8 p.m. at The Los Angeles Theater Center located in downtown Los Angeles at 514 South Spring Street. For more information please visit https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/cal/28125 or call 866-811-4111. Tickets are $32 and $24 for students and seniors. For information on the company, please visit http://bryncohnandartists.com. HOME draws upon ritualistic and traditional processes to elucidate through interpersonal encounters, environments and the pursuit of self and collective understanding. Scenic design elements, such as commonly seen furniture, are interwoven into kinetic movement languages to portray the loss, challenge and celebration that occur within this family. Through continuously evolving structures that transform the space and the complex relationships developed amongst the performers, we come to understand that our concept of HOME is constantly shifting as we move through life. By examining utopian models of the “picture perfect” family in contrast to human realities, the work provides a lens into a universal concept that we can all access to reimagine and define our own notion of what it means to find home. Skin investigates how we physically and metaphorically “build” a person in a continuous cycle of creation and destruction in response to social castes, gender, sexuality and political systems. Featuring six mannequins, Skin creates an immersive world onstage as the performers cultivate their own identities in juxtaposition to the empty and emotionless physical forms. Acting as voyeurs in the space, the mannequins become part of our understanding of what it means to be human, observing the entire performance but lacking the ability to fully participate. This intimate and risk-taking journey strips us of our fabricated spectacle and leaves us bare, in our own skin, to reveal a sacred truth about ourselves in conflict and harmony with our world. Skin (excerpt): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zMSSo6ddQ8 and Bryn Cohn’s Teaching Highlight Reel: https://vimeo.com/92250261 About the Company Founded in 2011, Bryn Cohn + Artists is a contemporary dance company comprised of diverse collaborative artists. Their mission is to construct artistic worlds of reality, fantasy and abstraction by investigating the edges of physical and imaginative boundaries. BC + A positions itself at the forefront of an honest dialogue about how human beings interact with, connect to, and isolate themselves amidst the complexity of our world. The building of a kinetic movement language, in conjunction with charged relationships fluidly guide the dancers into a compelling exchange of visceral and narrative concepts. Hailed as “groundbreaking, primal, graceful, flowing effortlessly, surreal and supernatural” (Brooklyn Buzz), the company has performed in premiere venues throughout New York, Boston and Seattle including Danspace Project in St. Marks Church in-the-Bowery, Ailey Citigroup Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Dixon Place, The Martha Graham Theater, Judson Memorial Church, The Center for Performance Research, 92nd Street Y, Abrons Arts Center, Baruch Performing Arts Center and in collaboration with the contemporary art galleries Foley Gallery and Castle Fitzjohns. About the Artistic Director Described as a “dancemaker who does not shy away from much” (DIY Dancer), Bryn Cohn graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from California Institute of the Arts in dance performance and composition. Cohn has been commissioned by the Missouri Contemporary Ballet, Billy Bell’s Lunge Dance Collective (formerly of So You Think You Can Dance and Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet), the fashion designer Betsey Johnson, Grand Valley State University, The Pushing Progress Contemporary Training Program, California State University at Fullerton, and The Youth America Grand Prix. As a sought after educator, she is on permanent faculty at Peridance Capezio Center, Greenwich Ballet Academy and for The Pushing Progress Contemporary Training Program, and has participated in master educational engagements at Broadway Dance Center (NYC), Gibney Dance (NYC), Loyola Marymount University (CA) and Velocity Dance Center (Seattle), among others. Cohn, born and raised in Los Angeles, is establishing a bicoastal presence through this premiere and is currently working within different sectors from commercial to education to concert dance.

H.T. Chen and Dancers announce two encore performances of their major dance/theater work "South of Gold Mountain," researched and created by H.T. Chen and Dian Dong. In 1850, news of "The California Gold Rush" reached southern China and thus began an exodus of 300,000 Chinese immigrants to the U.S., many settling in southern states, where they helped build the U.S. by working on the southern railroads, levees, plantations, and as grocers. Chen and Dong spent three years interviewing immigrants and their descendants, drawing for their work on rich oral histories, treasured images, and official and private documentation of the first Chinese settlers lured by the promise of gold and a better life. The cast will be joined by children from the Chen Dance Center school. James Lo's contemporary sound score blends traditional Chinese music with Deep South Blues.

"THE DEBORAH ZALL PROJECT: IN THE COMPANY OF WOMEN" HAS FULL PRODUCTION MAY 13 AND 14 AT MARTHA GRAHAM STUDIO THEATER IN WESTBETH Deborah Zall, a former stalwart of the Martha Graham family, returns with dramatic portrayals of women characters that she had "left the Graham fold" to pursue. WHERE AND WHEN May 13 and 14, 2016 at 8:00 PM Martha Graham Studio Theater at Westbeth, 55 Bethune Street, 11 fl. Presented by Classic Contemporary Dance Heritage Ltd. $30 gen. adm., $15 seniors and students Box office: SMARTTIX (212) 868-4444, www.smarttix.com Show' website: www.deborahzall.com Runs 1:25. Critics are invited to both performances NEW YORK -- Deborah Zall (www.deborahzall.com) left the Martha Graham fold to pursue an independent career as a soloist, creating dramatic portrayals of women that are based primarily on works of dramatic literature. Her signature pieces include dances inspired by female characters drawn from Eugene O'Neill, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Tennessee Williams and F. Garcia Lorca. Last year, she was convinced to re-stage six of her classic female solos for past and present Martha Graham Dance Company members. The resulting evening, titled "The Deborah Zall Project: In the Company for Women," was mounted as an informal presentation in the Martha Graham Studio Theater in Westbeth. It proved so sensational that Ms. Zall was pressed to remount the evening this year as a full production. This time, it'll be done with four of her own pieces plus two complimentary works drawn from the Anna Sokolow Company. The concert will bear the same name and will be presented May 13 and 14, again at the Martha Graham Studio Theater, by Zall's nonprofit company, Classic Contemporary Dance Heritage Ltd. Zall sees herself as largely an artistic descendant of Graham, but her interests have ranged toward the literary. Her main works focus on the mental journeys of "falling women" characters of great dramatic works. In her "Mary Tyrone," set to music of Schoenberg, the mother character of O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey into Night" confronts her drug addiction, weighing whether to take a fix of morphine. In "Amanda," inspired by "The Glass Menagerie," the mother character studies herself in a mirror, comparing the woman she sees to the belle she was, popular and besieged by gentlemen callers. In "Sonnet," based on a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay, a woman struggles to forget a lost lover. In a piece devoted to George Sand, the author reflects on having always been an artist, for better or for worse. "Shadow of a Sister," drawn from Lorca's "The House of Bernarda Alba," examines two of the play's five sisters in a dance about their clash of wills. The request to remount these works originally came from three Graham Company members, past and present--Blakely White McGuire, Kim Jones and Nya Jones--who asked if Zall would consider re-staging her solos for them. A bit overwhelmed but flattered, she thought, "Why not?" Adding Jennifer Conley, Erica Dankmeyer and Carrie Ellmore Tallitsch to the ensemble, she set about to see the reaction to old fashioned dramatic narrative solos. It was a revelation to Zall that a new generation of Graham artists would want to perform her work. It's also extraordinary, she says, for her to return to the Graham conclave with the very works she had once left it behind for. She had taught Graham technique there and these techniques are strong in her work. "Old fashioned emotion is not wrong," she asserts. "They see the blood of Martha in these dances." Still, it was unexpected to be ratified so strongly for her vision by a new generation of the Graham family. Zall says, "To keep archival works alive is very important because you learn from the past. It brings you to the present and we mustn't invalidate it." She adds, "The excitement for me is how people are reacting. The reality, I guess, is that truth is still popular and women's issues are still part of the world." The dances had proved their ability to communicate through the years in real-world, nontraditional venues. Zall performed her Mary Tyrone piece in real-life drug rehab centers in the 1970s. Patients there would laugh and cry. Works on other women's tragedies resonated strongly with women in various other types of institutions, like homeless shelters and Rikers and Bayview prisons. Reviewing last year's program, Joel Benjamin (TheaterScene.net) wrote, "Recently, after years of relative obscurity, she has emerged as an important choreographer, the keeper of the dramatic Graham tradition….Ms. Zall uses the old-fashioned Graham vocabulary well. Bodies actually vibrate from inner pain as the feet thrum against the floor and fists against the heart." Lea Antolini-Lid (Bearnstow Journal) agreed, writing "Some have used the term 'old fashion' to describe the works of Ms. Zall, but the impact and the power presented in these historical dance pieces is anything but old fashion." She concluded, "I would like to see more of Zall's work and would recommend all professors take their theater and dance students to see these great works of art." Broadway World (Samantha Bancroft) added, "Once seen as an ancient art, Deborah Zall's works will indeed live on and continue to influence dancers everywhere." Two of this concert's six dances showcase members of the Anna Sokolow Company; their presence in this concert is an homage by Ms. Zall to Ms. Sokolow, who created for Ms. Zall one of her greatest signature pieces, "Kaddish" (which Zall then built upon into "Kaddish for Ten Women"). Zall says it is hard to overestimate the importance of Sokolow to her; she wanted to have Sokolow dances represented as a tribute. PROGRAM "Amanda," choreographed by Deborah Zall, inspired by "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams. Original music by Stephen Weinstock. Performed by Erica Dankmeyer. (10 min) "Sonnet," choreographed by Deborah Zall, based on "Sonnet II" by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Original music by Eugene Lester, Poem spoken by Geraldine Johns. Danced by Jennifer Conley.

(15 min) ABOUT DEBORAH ZALL As guest artist, Miss Zall performed at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, Cannes Festival and Biennial de la Dance in France, Contempo Tanz in Guatemala, South Bank Center, The Place in London and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts. In addition to her own choreography, Miss Zall’s repertory includes works created especially for her by Jane Dudley, Stuart Hodes, Igal Perry and Eleo Pomare. Her unique talents have prompted several renowned choreographers to reconstruct solo works for her and she has been critically acclaimed for her performances of Ruth St. Denis’s "Incense," "Brahms-Liebestraum" and "Gold Madonna" (reconstructed by Jane Sherman); Jane Dudley’s "The Lonely Ones" (character "Revenge is Sweet"); Sophie Maslow’s "The Village I Knew" (character the "Yente"); Anna Sokolow’s "Kaddish"; Ethel Winter’s "En Dolor"; Yuriko’s "The Cry"; and "Proverbs" by Jane Dudley, choreographed especially for Miss Zall and Bertram Ross, as well as Martha Graham’s classic work "Lamentation." A grant from the National Endowment for the Arts facilitated Miss Zall’s creation of two works for the Los Angeles Ballet: "Preludes" and "Souvenirs," said to be a "most valuable company resource," and "Pastorale," hailed at its premiere performance in Los Angeles as "the choreographic highlight" of the program (Lewis Segal, L.A.Times). A grant from the Arkansas Council of the Arts and Humanities enabled her to choreograph "Espaniana" for the Arkansas Ballet in Little Rock, and this work was subsequently performed by the Harkness Dance Players at Watch Hill, Rhode Island. In addition, "Cathedral Reflections," created for the Harkness Dance Players, premiered at Hunter College Playhouse in New York, toured the East Coast and was subsequently re-staged for The Repertory Dancers of New Jersey. She restaged Bertram Ross’ work "Nocturne" for the Martha Graham Dance Ensemble and the Ailey/Fordham Dancers. She assisted Yuriko in restaging "Steps in the Street," excerpted from Martha Graham’s "Chronicles." Miss Zall’s works have been filmed for telecast by CBS-TV, PBS, and the BBC, London. Her works are in the permanent collection of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre, Barnard College, and the Dance Library of Israel. Funding received from National Endowment for the Arts, Grand Marnier, Harkness Foundation for Dance and the Jerome Robbins Foundation. Miss Zall has been on the faculties of the High School of Performing Arts and the Martha Graham School in New York, City University of New York, University of California at Los Angeles, Harkness House, and the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York. She has taught as a guest instructor at the California Institute of the Arts, Centre de la Dance in Cannes, France, and has been Artist-in-Residence at Smith College, and Performance Artist for the Lincoln Center Institute. She is currently teaching workshops nation-wide in the United States and internationally, and has recently taught at Middlesex University, Laban Centre, and The Place in London. Her mentor and great friend, Bertram Ross, gave her the legacy of his works, which she makes available for restaging.

The SuperHero and his Charming Wife – Not Man Apart–Physical Theatre Ensemble presents a wonderfully absurd and deeply philosophical hero story dramatized in the world of the graphic novel. An entertaining wild journey into our fear of the unknown, this original story of a career SuperHero whose marriage collapses when his wife develops the surprising ability to transform into other women. Devoted to security and order, the Hero discovers that he is terrified of change. He struggles to defend his sense of identity, to hold his ground at any cost, and finally to accept the loss, collapse, and revelation that come to pass. A Hero’s tale for a pop-culture age. A philosophical and psychological journey balanced with modern action, music, and absurd humor. NMA’s signature style is athletic, dynamic, and transformative; a marriage of classical literature and explosive movement, blending the world of modern dance, colored with the NMA signature athletic style set to edgy/funky remixes of pop songs. Performances of The SuperHero and his Charming Wife take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. and two Sundays, May 8 and 15 at 3:30 p.m., April 15 through May 15.

Tickets are $20/adults and $10/children and can be purchased at the venue starting an hour before the performance. No reservations are necessary. Loco-Motion's young choreographers and dancers ages 5 - 18 conceptualized, created and choreographed thirteen pieces utilizing a unique creative process developed by Artistic Director Lisa Pilato. This annual event has been held for over 20 years showcasing over 300 original works of choreography, This years dances will explore global warming, how women are portrayed in the media, a dance letter to a playground bully, the lessons teens want to learn but are not taught, three works utilizing poetry/spokenword/voiceover, and an improvised duet. Also included will be their first ever parent and child dance. “We provide a forum for young voices to be heard,” says Pilato. “We encourage students to create material that reflects their responsibility as members of a global community, to search for fresh answers to old questions while exploring the idea that art can effect positive change. We encourage children to take risks, and we support them in their creative vision.” In addition to participating in Loco-Motion's curriculum of modern dance, dance composition, ballet and improvisation techniques, 100 students from seven different dance classes have spent the last nine months in extensive choreography workshops. Young artists who are relatively new to the choreographic process will have the opportunity to showcase their work along side of Loco-Motion's older and more experienced choreographers. Their combined training and performance backgrounds have coalesced and transformed this dedicated group of children into a formidable ensemble. It will prove to be an entertaining and thought-provoking experience for audiences of all ages.

In her workshop, she takes a microscopic view on the role improvisation plays in a live performance combining her background in the performing arts with her curiosity for advances in brain studies, music and movement research. WHO COULD ATTEND? Katie can accept students from all performance art backgrounds and professional levels. Her only concern is that anyone who studies in her workshop have a deep interest in the work and is willing to experiment and take risks with the material she offers. WHAT YOU LEARN? Improvisational performance breaks the framework of preset choreography and challenges the artist to be the creator/composer/choreographer and the performer at the same time; to be the doer and the observer simultaneously. It is about learning ‘The Eye': of the space, of the watcher and essentially the eye of work being created. The workshop is oriented towards building skills of performance presence, timing, tracking and conviction of choice/action. It focuses on developing skills to interpret dynamic space and creating one’s own performance frame. While Katie aims to explore novel and rigorous approaches to body work. The main focus lies in reaching a state of surprising oneself. The workshop will be structured into body work, activity-based sessions, performances and a jam. Her warm-up and exercises emphasis how the eyes and the ears work in coordination with movement, sound and exposure to gathered crowds altering our perception of time, space, feelings and emotions. Improvisation sessions revolve around the terms pause, flow, exit, choice and presence with discussions articulating play, memory and intuition. Katie guides the dancers and performers through physical exercises that highlight how the eyes and ears affect movement choices and developmental brain studies about “how we learned to walk”. She extends the workshop toward improvisation sessions by setting a fictional front in the studio space and then declaring this as a platform to choose pause, flow or exit. This platform highlights how the limit of these three choices can already provide the frame for a composition to take place, and that misunderstanding, coincidence, live time, interactivity, messiness, emotions, intuition and inspiration are basic materials in a creative process. These raw materials are integrated with the combined fact that everyone in the workshop group can make a choice. WORKSHOP SETTING: Choice is introduced to the workshop group as a compositional reality but also as a means for individuals to elect to participate in the performative or as a viewer and yet remain involved in the process. The aim is to gather the workshop group to recognize that in a creative composition process, time is passing at different perceived speeds and that space is shifting in several dimensions at once. This awareness creates a presence in the space and a compositional alertness. Her aim is to provide a situation where artists can practice together and grow in confidence toward public performances with an objective to clarify that improvisation not the antitheses of choreography or composition but rather the way choreography and composition can be executed. The improvisation sessions are given a delegated time frame with an option for the workshop group to shift, drop or lift the space at will. This shifting, dropping and lifting of the performance space places each individual in a position where they need to be to be fully awake or they will recognisably loose the thread of the creative compositional activity in play. HOW KATIE TEACHS? Katie has been teaching since she began to perform professionally in the mid 70’s. She is dedicated to how process and research play a major role in how one can continue to be artistic in how they approach their life and their work. Over the past 10 years her workshops have been titled “Improvisation” in order to emphasis her views on theater as a live art form reflective of how she executes her own professional performances. Her research is placed in practice with lectures containing her recent interest in brain studies and film. She integrates her current research making each workshop completely unique. She draws from her experiences in live performances, music collaborations, as a director and choreographer. Her enthusiasm for a young artists to be able to continue their practice, in a very different atmosphere than when she began her work, is evident in how she has continued to up grade her life style with new technologies, continued to do research in the sciences, the performance arts and music. She has created several projects with an aim to support a young artists rather than her own career. She continues to take risks with her own career in the support of young artists giving them the possibility to experiment within their own practice. She promotes to her students that the mental connection to the practice of improvisation can be accessed weather they are doing set or open framed performance pieces and that the definitions of what improvisation within art practices mean today need to be reflective to advances in brain-studies and technology. In the way she communicates with students, one is aware of how she understands that the professional field of the arts has altered drastically in comparison to when she began her practice in the mid 70’s. As part of her teaching, she encourages young artists to devise strategies that allow for them to sustain the production of their work with creativity and research involved and yet survive. RESEARCH MATERIAL: Katie has had the possibility to create material for her workshops out of a wide range of practice in the performance arts. She has never formulated her teaching material into a frozen body of knowledge. She does not believe that the accumulation of knowledge is how one becomes a teacher. She believes that It is out of her practice and the practice she witnesses with a student that all knowledge becomes clarified in the lessons she leading. http://katieduck.com/about-katie-duck/text/research-material/ QUOTES KATIE DUCK: “The combination of moving, seeing, hearing, feeling and deliberately volunteering to expose myself in front of an audience alters my perception of time, space and emotions. What I do for a living is an induced neuron madness” “I am not interested in the moment even though it does feel good. I am interested in movement and the fact that time is passing. It is a kind of hippie hype to encourage someone to be in the moment.” “A fully awake body is rarely pedestrian. The body awake needs to be discovered and demands a discipline beyond everyday tasks. And yet when I see movement that does not respect the beauty of the body as pedestrian I become uncomfortable. How the body works and how I see a body is not so different an activity in how I feel. To not respect the body as an already perfect place of motion is like watching a dog trying to learn ballet.” VIDEOS: Cage make a movie (Solo Katie / Music Mix Katie Duck) https://vimeo.com/140120365 Duck and Snaith (girls at work) (Yolanda Snaith and Katie Duck / music mix Katie Duck) https://vimeo.com/140186320 Recent improvisation (OT301 Amsterdam / live musicians) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqgPUVvf-S8 Katie Duck & Alfredo Genovesi at SDSU - closing talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0zeo5s1BzA OTHER LINKS: DR Sharon Smith essay about working with Katie Duck http://www.sharonsmith.org/5-its-not-what-you-do-its-the-way-that-you-do-it.php Home from Home by the Blue Stocking Social Club, by Vincent Cacalano http://www.contactquarterly.com/cq/unbound/view/home-from-home-by-the-blue-stocking-social-club#$ BIO KATIE DUCK: Katie Duck has been a professional performer and maker since the early 1970’s.

KATIE DUCK: IMPROVISATION - Workshop in Performance Research and improvisational compositions - June 3-5, 2016 in Berlin DATE: June 3-5, 2016 VENUE: Tanzfabrik Kreuzberg, Berlin COST: Earlybird 100€, thereafter 120€ REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at xs4jan@gmx.de EVENT WEBSITE: http://contact-improvisation.net/2015/10/02/improvisation-workshop-by-katie-duck-june-3-5-2016/ SOCIAL: https://www.facebook.com/events/663553780414838/ WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Katie Duck has been investigating theater, dance and music with live performance for over 30 years. In her workshop, she takes a microscopic view on the role improvisation plays in a live performance combining her background in the performing arts with her curiosity for advances in brain studies, music and movement research. WHO COULD ATTEND? Katie can accept students from all performance art backgrounds and professional levels. Her only concern is that anyone who studies in her workshop have a deep interest in the work and is willing to experiment and take risks with the material she offers. WHAT YOU LEARN? Improvisational performance breaks the framework of preset choreography and challenges the artist to be the creator/composer/choreographer and the performer at the same time; to be the doer and the observer simultaneously. It is about learning ‘The Eye': of the space, of the watcher and essentially the eye of work being created. The workshop is oriented towards building skills of performance presence, timing, tracking and conviction of choice/action. It focuses on developing skills to interpret dynamic space and creating one’s own performance frame. While Katie aims to explore novel and rigorous approaches to body work. The main focus lies in reaching a state of surprising oneself. The workshop will be structured into body work, activity-based sessions, performances and a jam. Her warm-up and exercises emphasis how the eyes and the ears work in coordination with movement, sound and exposure to gathered crowds altering our perception of time, space, feelings and emotions. Improvisation sessions revolve around the terms pause, flow, exit, choice and presence with discussions articulating play, memory and intuition. Katie guides the dancers and performers through physical exercises that highlight how the eyes and ears affect movement choices and developmental brain studies about “how we learned to walk”. She extends the workshop toward improvisation sessions by setting a fictional front in the studio space and then declaring this as a platform to choose pause, flow or exit. This platform highlights how the limit of these three choices can already provide the frame for a composition to take place, and that misunderstanding, coincidence, live time, interactivity, messiness, emotions, intuition and inspiration are basic materials in a creative process. These raw materials are integrated with the combined fact that everyone in the workshop group can make a choice. WORKSHOP SETTING: Choice is introduced to the workshop group as a compositional reality but also as a means for individuals to elect to participate in the performative or as a viewer and yet remain involved in the process. The aim is to gather the workshop group to recognize that in a creative composition process, time is passing at different perceived speeds and that space is shifting in several dimensions at once. This awareness creates a presence in the space and a compositional alertness. Her aim is to provide a situation where artists can practice together and grow in confidence toward public performances with an objective to clarify that improvisation not the antitheses of choreography or composition but rather the way choreography and composition can be executed. The improvisation sessions are given a delegated time frame with an option for the workshop group to shift, drop or lift the space at will. This shifting, dropping and lifting of the performance space places each individual in a position where they need to be to be fully awake or they will recognisably loose the thread of the creative compositional activity in play.

OF THIS BODY is an interdisciplinary dance theater project conceived, choreographed and performed by Paula Josa-Jones in collaboration with her design team. Each of the three dances integrates projection and set design and interactive media to create visual/sensory worlds that draw the audience deeply into the physical and emotional worlds of the dance. All three dances explore liminal states of being: ambiguous, disorienting moments when we find ourselves poised on a threshold between one world and another - times of being caught in a maelstrom of events outside our control, evoking primal questions of identity, expression and place in the world. The projections are a seamless element of the choreography, another character in the space. The digital world weaves through the piece alongside the performer acting as another guide. It transports the audience to various settings, in and out of literal space, shifting the perception of time. The content ranges from rugged landscapes to unique structures, metaphorical imagery to a distinctly present secondary character. The world of the video illustrates the inner reality of the performer on stage. The two bodies dance with each other. The figure in the video fades into and out of the various settings in constant conversation with the live performer.

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance and Bryn Cohn + Artists (BC+A) present HOME in a collaborative evening at Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, 280 Broadway, Gibney Dance Center NYC, from June 16-18, 2016 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 advanced sales online and $20 at the door. They will be available in late April at www.gibneydance.org/calendar/ or by calling the Gibney Dance Center box office at 646.837.6809. HOME draws upon ritualistic and traditional processes to elucidate the concept of home through interpersonal encounters, environments and the pursuit of self and collective understanding. In these two NYC premieres, BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance and BC+A incorporate interactive set pieces in a pre-show exhibition and mid-show interlude as well as in two distinct works, enabling our image of home to become amorphous while also serving as a thematic thread upon which we establish community. Scenic design elements, such as commonly seen furniture, supported frames, and micro-sanctuaries, are interwoven into kinetic movement languages to portray the loss, challenge and celebration that occur within individuals and family. Through continuously evolving structures that transform the space and the complex relationships developed amongst the performers, we come to understand that our concept of home is constantly shifting as we move through life. By examining utopian models of the “picture perfect” family in contrast to human realities, the work provides a lens into a universal concept that we can all access to reimagine and define our own notion of what it means to find home.

This season we decided to support our dedicated dancers by commissioning their work. THE SHOW will premiere three new pieces: two from the NYC company and one from the Boston company. Each piece continues to explore the themes that are foundational to our company's mission. Also included in the Boston premiere of THE SHOW are special guest artists Matthew Cumbie and Mat Elder. RDT is a contemporary modern dance company founded by Smith College MFA alumni Rebecca Hite Teicheira, Stephanie Simpson, and Stephen Ursprung. The mission of RDT is to continuously challenge an audiences perception of dance; whether it be by exploring the boundaries of ones physicality, integrating various mediums of visual and dramatic arts, challenging preconceived notions of commercialized dance forms, or delving into the psychology of dance. We find work most exciting when our bodies become strange to us; when we can look at the human form in a different light and discover new qualities within our moving selves that have previously lain dormant. Currently, RDT is based in New York City and Boston and has performed in a variety of venues and festivals across the country including the MixMatch Dance Festival, Los Angeles, CA; Built on Stilts Festival, Marthas Vineyard, MA; Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY; New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, CT; Trinity Rep Theater, Providence, RI; the Dance Complex, Cambridge, MA; and Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA. www.rejectdancetheatre.com Please take the time to support the importance of creating new art by visiting our Indiegogo campaign.

RIOULT Dance NY presents Two Programs World Premiere of Cassandra’s Curse NYC Premiere of Polymorphous The Joyce Theater June 21-26, 2016 RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, returns to The Joyce Theater from June 21-26, 2016 with eight performances featuring World and New York City Premieres. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at www.joyce.org. An established name in modern dance with a reputation for performing sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works, RIOULT Dance NY performs two programs. WOMEN ON THE EDGE examines the role of women in times of conflict and features the World Premiere of Cassandra’s Curse, set to live music. The second program is distinguished by the New York City premiere of Polymorphous, a piece exploring the subjectivity of perception through movement and technology; Duets, a suite of magnificent duets drawn from some of Pascal Rioult’s finest dances; and two repertory works. Special events during the company’s Joyce Theater engagement include a Family Matinee on Saturday, June 25 with $10 tickets available for children aged 6-14; a Curtain Chat following the Thursday, June 23 performance with members of the company, as well as a gala immediately following the performance on June 22 at Studio 450, 450 W. 31st Street, NYC. Call 212-398-5901 for gala tickets. RIOULT Dance NY Season at The Joyce Theater – June 21-26, 2016 PROGRAM A: WOMEN ON THE EDGE…Unsung Heroines of the Trojan War Tuesday, June 21 at 7:30pm; Thursday, June 23* & Saturday, June 25 at 8pm; Sunday, June 26 at 7:30pm *Stay with us for a post-performance Curtain Chat after the curtain goes down on Thursday, June 23. Iphigenia (2013) Iphigenia is a dance drama chronicling a young woman’s transfiguration from innocent child to transcendental heroine. Based on Euripides’ Iphigenia in Aulis, it focuses on King Agamemnon’s decision to sacrifice his daughter – much to the horror of his wife, Clytemnestra, and his daughter’s betrothed, Achilles – and Iphigenia’s ultimate acceptance of her fate. Through dramatic dance scenes woven together with a recurring ensemble-the Greek chorus, the part-narrative, part-abstract piece unfolds, reintroducing audiences to this beautifully tragic story. On Distant Shores (2011) On Distant Shores...A Redemption Fantasy evokes the ancient myth of Helen of Troy. “I always thought Helen got a bad rap,” says Pascal Rioult. In this work he sets out to redeem her, imagining she is brought to Troy against her will, where she encounters four god-like warriors. Cassandra’s Curse (World Premiere) The world premiere of Pascal’s new work, Cassandra’s Curse, is set to a commissioned score by acclaimed composer Richard Danielpour and will premiere with live music. Loosely based on Euripides’ The Trojan Women, this dance reveals the character of Cassandra, whose gift of prophecy allows her to foresee the unfortunate fate of Troy, though not a soul believes her. Her curse is a metaphor for a society’s tendencies to ignore the voice of reason and to repeat its history of war and violence. Cassandra’s Curse is co-commissioned by ADF with support from the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Award for New Dance and created in part with the support from the Made in Wickenburg Residency program with funding from the R. H. Johnson Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, WESTAF, and the Wellik Foundation. Program B Wednesday, June 22 at 7pm*; Friday, June 24 at 8pm; Saturday, June 25 & Sunday, June 26 at 2pm *Gala immediately following this performance at Studio 450. Dream Suite (2014) Dream Suite is a contemporary take on romanticism. The contrasting mood of Tchaikovsky’s “Orchestral Suite No. 2 in C Major” is juxtaposed with more aggressive, rhythmic and athletic movement. With a palette inspired by the paintings of Marc Chagall, this thoroughly contemporary work delves into the surreal as it evolves. Polymorphous (2015) - NYC Premiere Set to selections from J.S. Bach’s “The Well Tempered Clavier,” Polymorphous explores the subjectivity of perception through movement and technology. The work takes on the very idea of polymorphism, referring to the act of something that assumes or occurs in various forms. Duets Duets, a series of duets and double duets drawn from Pascal Rioult’s extensive repertory, captures his knack for distinctive partnering. Bolero (2002) Bolero, one of Rioult’s most popular works, is a bold and unique interpretation of Ravel’s famous musical score. Its perpetual motion and ever-changing patterns build to an inevitable climax, creating a riveting tour de force. RIOULT Dance NY, founded in 1994, fast became an established name in modern dance with a reputation for bringing the sensual, articulate, and musical dance works of Pascal Rioult to audiences worldwide. The ten-dancer company, based in New York City, is led by husband-and-wife team Pascal Rioult and Joyce Herring - both former Martha Graham Dance Company principal dancers. With an established repertoire of over 40 dances that expands each year, RIOULT Dance NY presents an annual New York Season and tours nationally and abroad. In addition, in-school arts education and community outreach have been integral to the company since its inception, introducing students and families to the art of modern dance. www.rioult.org RIOULT Dance NY’s 2016 NY Season is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding provided by: Fund for New Works, a Kenneth French Legacy; The Geoffrey C. Hughes Foundation; Harkness Foundation for Dance; Howard Gilman Foundation; The O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation; The Shubert Foundation; and The West Survivors Trust Fund. ####

The curtain opens to a fantastical circus straight from the mind of Garrett Ammon. The Fool watches from afar as the ringmaster directs act after act until The Star appears and steals The Fool’s heart with her magic. Set to the hauntingly beautiful music of Jesse Manley, and featuring the interactive illusions of Professor Phelyx, this astonishing production invites audiences to step into the magical realm under the big-top.
