A Solo Voice

“A Solo Voice” is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. Through multidimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.

What words do we use, arrange, invent, and discover to talk about the particular communicative power of performance work? How does geographic location and environment influence the creation, languaging, and understanding of dance and performance? How do digital/ virtual sites affect the consumption of dance as a living, complex, emotionally dense form? This conversation covered topics concerning locality, environmental and digital influence, and curatorial process.

Podcast: Studies Project 4/29/15: Dance and Labor

Movement Research Studies Project, “Dance and Labor”
Organized in dialogue with Movement Research, luciana achugar, Abigail Levine and Kathy Westwater.
With panelists David Thomson and Yve Laris Cohen


Listen to the Podcast here:

How is dance labor valued? How has it been valued? How might it be? And how can we affect the value assigned to this labor? These questions were considered across a spectrum of contexts, including individual and institutional, organized and spontaneous, and historical and anecdotal to explore how performance and dance function within our current artistic, economic and labor realities.
