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. To mark the moment of the final SPCP in 2012, Independent Dance commissioned videographer Becky Edmunds to document the journey of the group as they learned the solo 'Dynamic'. The result [...]

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.

Archaic Landscapes & the Power of Stillness [electronic resource]: Eiko & Koma's "Hunger"

Loading...
"Japanese born and American based artists Eiko & Koma are masters of their own unique form of dance-theater. Eiko & Koma dance about what matters to them. Their subjects are elemental; their message pitiless yet humanistic. Both their choreography and stagecraft are characterized by bold, highly theatrical strokes and offers an organic, conceptual environment on the stage. The result is stark, infused with a relentless stillness that subverts and transcends our everyday notions of time and space. This program features a complete performance of their 2008 work 'Hunger' which was recorded at the Joyce Theater in New York City and a revealing interview with the artists."--Publisher website.
