Douglas Dunn & Jim Neu [electronic resource]

Loading...
Choreographer Douglas Dunn and Playwright Jim Neu joined their talents to create "Aerobia" - a dance-theater work that pokes fun at America's obsession with health clubs.

Risa Jaroslow [electronic resource]

Loading...
Jaroslow peels back the veneer of our culture's assumptions about maleness and masculinity, and exposes an explosive physicality. The piece asks what masculinity could mean if we reconciled our attraction to and repulsion from the assumed power of maleness. It draws from the experiences of a diverse group of community members, including NYC firefighters, corporate lawyers, gay teens, and senior adults and men recently out of prison. In addition to the four dancers Resist/Surrender features a chorus of twelve men from diverse backgrounds, including a math teacher, a firefighter, a sociologist, and a waiter. Composer Scott Johnson has created a riveting score for Resist/Surrender based on recordings of interviews with many different kinds of men, as well as an all male poker game. The [...]

Torse [electronic resource]

Loading...
A modern dance performance utilizing the split screen method which permits the viewer to see the movement from two different aspects at the same time. The right and left screen versions have been optically printed onto one film. There are five basic positions utilized - upright, arch, twist, tilt and curve. All aspects of the continuity were chance-determined: the sequence of phrases, the number of things happening at once, and the number of dancers involved in a given phrase.
