Mårten Spångberg: 15min, The Fastest Planet

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.

this is what we know
Performers: Jodi Bender and Megan Madorin
Created by Tara O’Con in collaboration with Jodi and Meg
This is the start of a new process. It will go deeper and get turned on its head, and looked at through various lenses. But not just yet. It’s only the beginning – or rather, the end of where we just were.
The creation of [This is what we know (in-process title)] was supported, in part, through a commission from New York Live Arts’ Studio Series program with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
The project (or work) was made possible, in part, through The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund.

Tara O’Con’s work has been presented by Dance Theater Workshop (Fresh Tracks), Danspace Project, The Chocolate Factory Theater, and most recently as part of the River To River Festival produced by The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She is looking forward to further developing this work during her time as a Movement Research Artist-In-Residence, and this spring as part of the New York Live Arts Studio Series Program (showing May 3rd and 4th).

Choreography & Performance: Fitzgerald & Stapleton
Music: Believe, Cher & The Crying Game, Boy George remixed by Myles D
Soundtrack: In my Father’s Name, by Fitzgerald & Stapleton, performed by Ailbe Fitzgerald, Emma Fitzgerald, Áine Stapleton and Joe Stapleton. Produced by Radioactive; a joint initiative of RTE Radio Choice and Absolut Fringe.

Emma Fitzgerald and celebrity choreographer Áine Stapleton certainly make a fashionable pair, but the dynamic duo are turning their eclectic tastes down a theatrical route with an exposed creative dialogue for tonight’s Movement Research at the Judson Church. They now begin the tedious and monumental task of isolating these elements so that their choreographic properties can be determined.

Video Clips from Movement Research at the Judson Church 11.19.2012

Featuring works by Julian Barnett, Luke George, Joey Kipp and Stina Nyberg*.

*MRX Sweden, in collaboration with Konstnärsnämnden/The International Dance Programme, Sweden

Concept and Choreography by Julian Barnett
Performance and research by Jocelyn Tobias and Julian Barnett
Dramaturgical support by Diego Gil
Co-production by K3-Hamburg (DE), ArtEZ (NL) and Dance Ireland (IR)

Bridge (The Union Piece) is a performance of unfolding communication. Examining how vocalization acts as an agent of choreography, the work probes a philosophical thread offered by Barthes, the ‘grain’ of the voice, or the body within the voice as it sings. Using the dramaturgical platform of two solos enacting adjacent dialogues to form a duet, the performance explores the unique connection-point to the listener/viewer and the links necessary to build a bridge across communicative and and performative barriers.

Julian Barnett is a choreographer, performer, musician, and teacher. his works pull inspiration from a multiplicity of colorful juxtapositions including philosophy, visual arts, cinema and popular music which explores forms of movement that intensify subjectivity, space, and time. This collaborative lens is always in play with new modes of sound perception, where live musical components are often created from the performers themselves. Born in Japan, Julian grew up in California, lives in New York, and works regularly in Europe. He studied dance, music, and film at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, was a danceWEB scholar in Vienna, and completed the ArtEZ master of choreography program (formerly EDDC) in Amhem, Netherlands.

Not About Face
Created and performed by Luke George
Developed in collaboration with Nick Roux
Dramaturgy by Martyn Coutts

He has performed with Phillip Adams BalletLab, Jo Lloyd, Chunky Move and Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People. Choreographies include LIFESIZE, HOME and NOW NOW NOW which he recently toured to the Netherlands and Norway. In NYC he has performed short works at AUNTS and Abrons Arts Center. George was artistic director of youth dance company Stompin 2002-2008 and currently co-facilitates First Run at Lucy Guerin Inc.

Dance Footage

Below are some links to some wonderful footage. I am sure we have all come across these over the years but I thought I would post them again. I am currently taking a Laban Movement Analysis course so some of these are related. Mixed in are a few other random clips of interest including the work of Martin Puryear who has informed my work.

Updates from Critical Correspondence 4/17

Hello from Critical Correspondence! Keeping you posted as to what’s new. Jean Butler has posted two interviews in a series on Danspace Project’s visionary Platform curation project – one with Back to NYC curator Juliette Mapp and one with participating artist Jen Rosenblit. Also, check out a video interview with Clarinda MacLow as part of Alejandra Martorell’s series What Sustains You? which takes a thoughtful look at various artist’s strategies at creating something functional out of the crazy existence of being a dance artist in NYC. Also up is an interview with the organizers of Fantasy Generator, a rethinking of the traditional model of a residency that took place at Hollins University last summer with the idea of radical generosity at its core. And we have notes from one of the discussions as part of the Trisha Brown Dance Company’s 40th Anniversary Lecture Series called “Talking About the Work.” Much more in the works so check back!
