As part of the beginning of our new process, we are here tonight to collect some data. We might call it an initial adaptation too. Based on the ideas of Romanticism–feel free to subjectivize on what those are–we are trying to find useful notions to continue this process/practice. In music there are “Symphonic Poems” or “Tone Poems,” and I want to think that in Dance there are “Danceable Poems.”

Saúl Ulerio is a dancemaker and musician from the Dominican Republic. His choreographic works has been shown at Dixon Place’s Moving Men and Underexposed series, Movement Research at the Judson Church and Teatro IATI. He was a 2009-2010 STREB Emerging Artist grant recipient, as well as a 2010-2011 Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative nominee. Saúl is also a member of the 4th Teacher Certification Program in Klein TechniqueTM. Many thanks to Mei Yamanaka, Jeanine Durning and Susan Klein!
