Etude-this diagonal longing

This work-in-progress is the first step in an excavation of found and discarded partial dances.

CJ Holm is a dancer, teacher, erstwhile lighting designer and gardener based in Brooklyn. CJ has been showing work in New York since 2008: at BAX Upstart Festival (curated by Shannon Hummel and Marýa Wethers), Dixon Place (Money Of The Month Club curated by Jen Rosenblit) Galapagos, Movement Research Open Performance, SITE Festival, Spoke the Hub, and The Tank. In 2010, CJ was awarded a PILLAR Artist Residency at Bodyart Studio in Long Island City, Queens. Creature Theater is the name CJ gives her dancemaking activities. The Creature is we, me, and everybody–the inevitable animal aspect of humanity.


cimmerian light (excerpt/draft)
Improvisation by Sharon Mansur
Sound arranged by Bruce Carter
This is a movement sketch of a solo that will be performed in DanceWorks, a shared evening with PearsonWidrig Dance Theater, at the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in February 2011. cimmerian light is inspired, in part, by images embodying darkness and lightness, and the concept of wabi-sabi, which finds beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. This collaborative project includes contributions from Bruce Carter (sound), Andrew Dorman (light), Felicia Glidden (visual elements), Tzveta Kassabova (costume), and Boris Willis (video).

Sharon Mansur is a Washington, DC area based experimental multi-media dance artist. She has long-time interests in improvisation, collaborative art making, somatics, visual arts, Laban studies, reiki, site specific dance, performance/installations and the dialogue between art and the natural environment.
