Echo/listening through walls - Sara Shelton Mann

----- follow along the lines between choices and enter into that echo, that flow of motion that splatters the canvas with a deft touch and eye creating the painting that hasn’t arrived yet, yet is arriving and arriving and ever arriving - - that resounds from the walls as an invitation to inhabit a spacial interium ((imagine yourself outside history, this room, this sketch of players, kings, queens, vagabonds, slaves, and archers)

Direction: Sara Shelton Mann in collaboration with Performers Anya Cloud and Jesse Zaritt 
Composer: Pamela Z

Only Human - Christine Bonansea

Ein choreographisches Projekt mit dem Ziel, die menschliche Natur und seine intrinsischen Paradoxe offenzulegen, inspiriert von Nietzsches aphoristischem Werk "Menschliches Allzumenschliches", welches die Verbindung zwischen Wissenschaft, Kultur und dem Freigeist etabliert hat.
Das Stück entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit Multimedia Künstlern und soll einen Ausgangspunkt für weitere Solo-Reihen bilden. Der kinetische, virtuose Tanz ist eine Meditation auf die körperlichen Bilder und Stereotypen des Selbst in seiner Umwelt – geographisch, emotional und innerhalb sozialer Strukturen.

Konzept / Choreographie / Performance: Christine Bonansea
Musikalische Komposition / Performance: Nicole Caroll
Licht Design: Solomon Weisbard
Graphische Programmierung: Yoann Trellu

Only Human is a solo inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human. The performer/ choreographer is investigating the stark contradiction between our race’s capacity for freedom and beauty against its most destructive and illogical behaviors. Created in collaboration with the artists Robert Flynt, Yoann Trellu and Nicole Carroll, this highly kinetic and virtuosic dance is a meditation on bodily images and stereotypes of self in the context of the environment – geography, emotions, social structure.

Only Human performances engaged local community as well as international audience inquiring humanity and perception of human body. The shows has been developed and seen in 2017 at JACK APAP 2017 showcase (NYC), in the Creative residency at Earthdance (MA), at the Movement Research at the Judson Church performance series (NYC), at the Edgar Poe Gallery (Bronx, NYC),TriskelionArts Festival (NYC), DOCK 11(Berlin), PAMS 2017 Pop-up Stage(Seoul), Fresh Festival (CA), New York Live Art Studio and Spotlight USA 2018 in Bulgaria.

CONDUIT - Jorge De Hoyos

CONDUIT is a solo performance about opening up.
It’s about opening up portals to other dimensions. It’s also about opening up the self to be a portal to other dimensions.
And it’s about stepping through portals.
But what’s an open portal anyways? All that comes through is banal observations and feelings and random thoughts and unexplained movements and memories and sexual fantasies and desires and mystic visions and alien messages and…
