Summary
This program showcases the highly original work of New York post-modern choreographer Yvonne Meier. 'A true East Village renegade with a special talent for creating havoc ... long live Ms. Meier.' The New York Times This program includes a 2013 evening-length program of two different yet interconnected pieces titled 'This is not a pink pony 1' and 'This is not a pink pony 2'. '1' was a remount of the piece which premiered in 2008 at the Kitchen in New York City, cast with the same dancers: Osmany Tellez, Marion Ramirez and Arturo Vidich. It is a Dr. Zhivago-like love triangle in wintry wartime. Dancers attempt to jump rope while threatened by gunfire. Midway through all dancers switch off and so do the sexual tensions. In this urgent constellation, movement is tightly scored and full of jealousy and brutal revenge. 'This is not a pink pony 2' was created in 2013 with dancers Aki Sasamoto, Jeremy Pheiffer and Arturo Vidich. This piece deals with bullying as a way to turn out rough and complex relationships. As a departure from former scored improvisation this piece is a set choreography. Physical comedy is used as a release from the bitter tension running through this work. Dancers find themselves in unexpected situations that ask for unconventional solutions. This program also contains excerpts from 3 other dances by Yvonne Meier - 'Area 51', 'Mad Heidi' and 'The Shining' plus excerpts from an interview with the artist. Over the years, Yvonne Meier has developed a high-risk movement vocabulary that takes the audience through transformation by exhaustion. Her group pieces are wild, anarchic and provocative post-modern spectacles. She often creates environments such as in her work, 'The Shining' where the dancers are exposed to high-speed, complex, and eccentric movement scores, combining elements of danger and total physical commitment.
