Featuring works by Tyler Eash, Tsveta Kasabova, Elke Luyten, and Antonio Ramos and the gang bangers 

 


Glossolalia
Choreographed by Tyler Eash
Performers: Elizebeth Randall, Tyler Eash

Glossolalia: the language of the possession of the Holy Ghost.
Glossolalia combines pious grandiose imagery with opulent spectacle. Gestures of classical ballet and moments of operatic hymns are intersected with extant consciousness and contemporary clarity. Eash depicts the violence of Evangelical healing and the intimacy of baptisms as sensual and zealous moments of pleasure and prayer. Poetry, deconstructed ballet, contemporary dance, and voice translate rituals of the divine into contemporary performance.

What is the role of the dance teaching artist in schools? Many artists make a living by teaching grades K-12 in the NYC school system. Is their goal to share their artistic practice, the ideology behind their aesthetic, tools for making art, historical reference points, movement skills, or something else? Hear experienced voices from different arenas of dance-in-education and share your own questions and ideas. Reflect on your own practice and how the work of teaching artists impacts education and culture in this city.
