Courtney Krantz (b. 1978, Paget, Bermuda) makes work in the still and moving image as well as installation and performance-based pieces/documents. She has an MA in Media Studies from The New School and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College.

Process Contributor: Meg Foley
Centurion will be a collection of 10,000 sequential, unrepeated movements; I’m showing about 800 here. 10,000 is both a real goal and also a provocation – it exists at the edge of what I can comprehend, and stands in for orders of magnitude beyond. As a collection, the dance is a living memorabilia of ordinary moments that have made up the process, however, as an epic feat on an individual scale, this piece also raises a monument which only exists in action.

Gregory Holt makes dances in Philadelphia. His work has been shown in the U.S. and in Europe. He has participated in numerous ad-hoc ensembles and collaborative projects. He is a coordinator at Mascher Space Co-op.
