This project was made possible, in part, through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Davis/Dauray Family Fund and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Rebecca Patek is a New York-based choreographer and performance artist creating work that synthesizes dance, theater, and comedy. Patek is an Artist-in-Residence at Movement Research. She was also awarded a 2010-11 Residency at Dance Theater Workshop (New York Live Arts). She has attended residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts and Earthdance (as part of the E|merge Artist Residency). Patek’s work has been presented at The Museum of Arts and Design, The Chocolate Factory, Dance Theater Workshop, 92nd Street Y, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dance New Amsterdam, The Joyce Soho, Dixon Place, Mulberry Street Theatre, The Tank, AUNTS, Triskelion Arts, Josee Bienvenu Gallery, The Overture Center (Madison WI), Brickyard Pond (NH), and Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art, among other venues. Works commissioned in 2012 include you and i of the storm for the Museum of Arts and Design, and Real Eyes for The Chocolate Factory. Erin Clark is an aerial silks performance artist. She choreographs and performs collaborative and solo pieces that reveal the not so pretty or graceful stories of life, using a notoriously pretty and graceful art form. With an unusual body that is capable of super-human feats of strength but incapable of basic things like walking (the wheelchair is not just a sexy prop), Erin has a taste for these kinds of contradictions and contrasts in emotional expressions that range from the hilarious to the haunting. Since her first aerial workshop with the Aerial Angels in 2009 where she caught the circus bug, she has trained at Flying Dreams Aerial Arts Productions on Saltspring Island, BC, and with Heather Hammond of Helium Aerial Dance in New York City.
