This is the first time I’ve made dance from the outside. This is a project in decisiveness and seeing. We tried a bunch of things. We wanted to show them all to you but there’s not enough time, so here’s some of what we made. They may or may not go together.

Tara Aisha Willis graduated from Barnard College with majors in Dance and English/Creative Writing and some awards for doing quite well. Tara’s work has been presented in DNA’s WIP, Green Space’s Fertile Ground, Sophia Cleary’s REHEARSAL, RoofTop Dance, this year’s collective at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and AUNTS regular performance party. You can see something of hers, again, at REHEARSAL on February 2. Tara was Pilates certified at The Kane School, and teaches at The Pilates Garage in Gowanus. She also does a lot of house managing at New York Live Arts, but mostly she program associates at Movement Research. Sometimes she pets her cat. Thanks, parents, for all that unconditional support, despite all.

Ryutaro Mishima conveys performance with his lens.

Ryutaro Mishima has exhibited his works at DNA Gallery, the Chocolate Factory, the National Art Club, Chashama Gallery, and Bertha and Karl Leubsdort Gallery in New York, and Tokyo Salon in Tokyo. Mishima has collaborated with Dean Moss on a performance work that has been presented by DTW, Dance Across Borders, and Sitelines:LMCC. Mishima’s own performance works have been presented by Danspace Project’s FOOD FOR THOUGHT. As an actor/performer Mishima has worked for Big Dance Theater, RoseAnne Spradlin, Nami Yamamoto, Chris Yon, Yasuko Yokoshi and others. He received New York Dance and Performance Awards (Bessie Award) in 2006 and 2010.
