“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.

Podcast: Studies Project 10/6/2015 – What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)

Movement Research Studies Project, “What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)” – October 6, 2015
Conceived by Melinda Ring
Moderated by Ryan Hill
With panelists Layla Childs, Tere O’Connor, Melinda Ring, Sonya Robbins and Larissa Velez-Jackson


Listen to the Podcast here:
Studies Project 10/6/15: What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)

How do the things we watch inform our dance making? What have our (guilty) pleasures, high and low, taught us about form, timing, structure, etc? Does our connection to TV, film and movies keep us attuned to this moment’s mind-image zeitgeist, and conversely, does a lack of attention to these mediums create a gap in relevance of this art form to contemporary culture? Panelists discussed their perspective on these questions followed by a group conversation with everyone present.

Mårten Spångberg: 15min, The Fastest Planet
With and by: Philip E. Foster, Monica Germann, Leanna Grennan, Tuva Hildebrand Peterson, Nikima Jagudajev, Dages Keates Juvelier, Karolina Kraczkowska, Stephanie Lee, Judah Levenson, Mor Mendel, Rebecca Posner, Randy Reyes, Chloe Rossetti, Lily Bo Shapiro, Alix Steeves, Kristin Swiat, Rainey White, Cesar Reyes, Dariana Sanchez, Mårten Spångberg, Gillian Walsh

The truly passionate archeologist does not worship objects extracted from earth but worship the earth itself. Not the world, not earth but the planet – in it self, in its most anonymous. The Planet is an ongoing proposal that examines the ownership and the rights to land beyond perspectives, beyond humans, nations, faith and belief.

Where stones move, where oil dances, where a pair of jeans are equally important as something else, a person, a flame, combinations or a windmill. Where time knows no distance and distance doesn’t know at all, and still it’s happening. We think that’s it to begin but only what we think because there is also flowers, somebody, many instances, the things you use when playing ice-hockey. Langoustine or perhaps one for the road. Those are the planet. Always.

Togetherness is a performative practice that seeks to investigate how to be with others.
It is based in the potency of the movement as a language, using repetition as a provocation to discover what is new.

This iteration was made possible by Dance OMI 2015 – Omi International Arts Center and AIR Chez Bushwick.
Thank you Salvatore Cataldo and Christopher K. Morgan.
