CHOREOGRAPHY FOR BLACKBOARD

In DANCE, NEWS on December 20, 2011 at 12:53

JANUARY 8-11

“Choreography is not to constrain movement into a set pattern, it is to provide a cradle for movement to find its own patterns.” – Michael Kliën

A silent, communal matrix of individuals “dreaming the real” imprints a landscape of marks and meaning on the surfaces of blackboards through a series of rehearsed patterns. Rising thoughts, visual thinking, and sensual perception form a choreography relating to exchange, sedimentation, erosion and demise as audience members bear witness to the unfolding. You may sit, you may talk, you may read, you may walk throughout the performance.

The US Premiere of Choreography for Blackboards, a work by European choreographer Michael Kliën (with dramaturge Steve Valk), weaves the drawings of seven performers info a collective dance of minds. Drawing on seven monolithic blackboards, seven local and international performers follow exact, rehearsed procedures over a set period of time. As the drawings develop and become more expressive, audience members are invited to interact with the performances or simple observe. Once the choreography has come to an end, a landscape of drawings is left for display and contemplation.

THE SHINING
by YVONNE MEIER
december 13 – 23

Originally created and performed in 1993 at Performance Space 122 and reconstructed in 1995 at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, The Shining by Yvonne Meier is a dance-installation work full of thrill and fearful anxiety. It speaks of experiences at once sought and avoided – how do we hide from fear, play with thrills and terrors? How do those emotions excluded from consciousness play with us? This second reconstruction features original cast members Scott Heron, Annie Iobst, and Mike Iveson with new cast members Yve Laris Cohen, Jen Rosenblit, Aki Sasamoto, Osmani Tellez, Arturo Vidich, and Emily Wexler, and special guest appearances from Hapi Phace, Stinkmetal and Gina Varla Vetro.

December 13 to 18 / December 20 to 23 / 7pm & 9pm
December 13: Pre-show talk at 6pm
$24 Advance Purchase / $30 Day of Performance / $15 Night: Dec 14

The reconstruction of The Shining is supported by New York Live Arts’ “DTW Commissioning Fund” and is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.

The Invisible Dog was conceived as a place for artists of all media to push the boundaries of interdisciplinarity and collaboration. For the third season – 2011/2012 – the Invisible Dog renews its focus on mixed media collaboration and asks: what does it mean to be a truly interdisciplinary art center?

 Last season, over 35,000 visitors attended Invisible Dog events—visual art exhibitions, video installations, sound and musical concerts, film screenings, theater and dance performances, lectures and teach-ins, etc. Just as our events intersected, so do our audiences. The challenge as our art center grows, is to continue deepening and broadening the convergences between our artists, our audiences and our events @Follow us.

ARTIST CONVERSATIONS

In DANCE, EVENTS, EXHIBITIONS, MUSIC, NEWS, THEATER on July 12, 2011 at 12:11

WEDNESDAY JULY 20
7-10pm

Artcards will launch “Artist Conversations” with an artist and curator round table discussion and performances. A select panel of artists and curators will examine today’s role of the internet as a tool for independent curators and artist-run collectives, and the changing role of the gallery in an increasingly internet dependent society. Benefits and challenges of the internet’s increasing role in the art community will also be discussed. The evening will launch with a pyrotechnic performance by Jesse Boardman Kauppila, followed by a short remixed/remediated/re-imagined homage to Dan Graham live act by G. Douglas Barrett. The panel discussion will be followed by a performance by sound artist Aki Onda presenting his analog soundscapes of exotic memories and field recordings.

Panelists include: Mark Tribe (founder, Rhizome), David Andrew Frey (founder, Culturehall), Kris Chatterson (cofounder, Progress Report and painter), Vince Contarino (cofounder, Progress Report and painter), Caitlin Masley (multimedia artist), Chelsea Knight (video artist).

Program: 7pm – performance: Jesse Kauppila (SF), G. Douglas Barrett (NY)/ 7.30pm – Panel Discussion / 9pm – perforrmance: Aki Onda (NY, JP)
