Turn Your F^*king Head: Deborah Hay's Solo Performance Commissioning Project

Loading...
In August 2012, twenty dance artists from eleven countries spent ten days at the Findhorn Community Foundation, Scotland, to learn and be coached in the performance of a solo they had each commissioned from renowned choreographer Deborah Hay. Hay's innovative Solo Performance Commissioning Project (SPCP) instils a transformative and rigorous daily practice that serves to stimulate and enrich each individual's approach to performance and choreography.

Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now being credited as the first black punk band (hell...the first punk band!), and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers.

Their struggle for livelihood is intersected with differerent stories of the broom provided by women and ritual attendants of shrines, traders, municipal sweepers and garbage collectors.

Even so, it stigmatizes entire communities through its associations with pollution and untouchability. Highlighting the humiliation and rob [...]

A Song for Ourselves

Through animated photographs, intimate home movies, archival footage and Chris' own songs, A song for ourselves shows how Chris' music unleashed the contagious energy of the Asian American movement with an unrelenting passion for social justice and a life well lived."--Container.
