FIND YOURSELF HERE, a collaboration between three dancers and three visual artists, is being presented by American Dance Institute (ADI) in April and will have its New York premiere in September.

FIND YOURSELF HERE is made possible in part by a 2014 Jerome Foundation general grant during the foundation’s 50th Anniversary year. FIND YOURSELF HERE is also made possible in part by a 2014 New York Foundation for the Arts BUILD grant, a 2014 LMCC Process Space artist residency (, and by The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund. Various stages of investigative movement research and showings of three trios that form the informational foundation of FIND YOURSELF HERE were supported by residencies at the Bogliasco Foundation, Djerassi and Baryshnikov Arts Center (with additional support from the Martha Duffy Award), a Yellow House Educational Stipend, and in part by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). This work also continues to be supported my many individual contributions.

International Dance Dialogues: Workshop with Thomas Hauert
January 24 – January 27
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
12:15 pm-12:45 pm
Avenue C Studio
Tools for Dance Improvisation
Every joint of our body has its range of movement, there are countless possible combinations. The body contains a great practical knowledge far beyond what the mind is capable of processing, resulting in an ever-changing, fluid sense of orientation that can serve as a sensor for potential movement. Through (group) improvisation with one or more partners, exchanging information through touch, we will take advantage of this phenomenon to create forms, rhythms, movement qualities more sophisticated than our minds could invent. This event is part of International Dance Dialogues (IDD), created and curated by Janet Panetta.

Workshop with Daria Faïn & Robert Kocik
Jan 15, Feb 19
SUN 2-6pm

PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
These six workshops focus on the sonic properties of language exploring the correspondences between energy centers, hormonal secretion, seed movements, sonic harmony, and emotional and neurological impact. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ‘scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.
