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. This process then engenders twenty unique solo adaptations of the work through a period of practice that extends into the months following the project.

Mierle Ukeles [electronic resource]

Loading...
As artist-in-residence at the New York City Department of Sanitation, Ukeles is currently involved with redesigning and reclaiming the largest landfill in North American. The program documents the collaboration between Ukeles and Oregon Public Broadcasting to create a video installation for "Flow City," one part of the vast "Fresh Kills Landfill Project." Everyday the public can watch as over 14,000 tons of solid waste are processed through the station and shipped to Fresh Kills on barges. Mierle sees this constant flow of waste and its association with the river as a "flow of life," a primal source cleansing the whole city. The program also follows Ukeles as she organizes a massive collaborative West Coast work in the fall of 1996.
