The Calculated Risk Project

Choreographed
by David Albert-Toth and Emily Gualtieri
Performed by Jody Hegel & Anna Smutny
The Calculated Risk Project fervently explores interdependence through a series of vignettes that are waveringly playful, daring, and intimate. Fueled by a non-linear narrative, two individuals race and strategize – at times against each other, and at other times together – defining themselves and their relationship in the process. They egg each other on, push each other down and help each other back up. The space is their arena, their playground, their sanctuary, their sandbox.

David Albert-Toth and Emily Gualtieri began collaborating in 2006. They have since presented their work in Montreal, Toronto, Guelph, and throughout Quebec. The duo ambitiously pursues a high level of physicality that juxtaposes tenderness and threat. The Calculated Risk Project fervently explores interdependence through a series of vignettes that are waveringly playful, daring, and intimate. Fueled by a non-linear narrative, two individuals race and strategize — at times against each other, and at other times together — defining themselves and their relationship in the process. They egg each other on, push each other down and help each other back up. The space is their arena, their playground, their sanctuary, their sandbox.
A big thank you to Jody and Anna. We wish to acknowledge the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and of the Department of Contemporary Dance, Faculty of Fine Arts, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.

Created by Heidi Carlsen

Thank you to Drew Pisarra, Alison Russo, HERE, Cora Dance

“Performatively and personally I am curious about the border between the surreal and pedestrian worlds.” This curiosity, most recently, brought Heidi Carlsen to Poland on a Fulbright Scholarship. There, she conducted research and directed + — INFINITY, a dance/theater work performed in an old tram warehouse. Recent New York performing/creating credits include: Now Repeat Steinese (Under St. Marks), I KNOW in collaboration with Miranda k Hardy (Ontological-Hysteric Theater) and Wait! She Waits (HERE Arts Center). Carlsen has presented work at NYTW, REDCAT, Highways Performance Space, The New School, Metro Gallery, the World Financial Center and others. She has trained with many artists including: former members of Jerzy Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratorium, Piesn Kosla (Song of the Goat), Dah Theatre, Ruth Zaporah, Linda K Johnson and Mary Oslund. She is currently training to become a Feldenkrais practitioner. Carlsen graduated with an MFA from CalArts.
