GARAGE PERFORMANCE & FILM
BIG SKY WORKS BROOKLYN
29 Wythe Ave. @ 14th St. $10 donation
Featuring: Jennifer Monson & Jennifer Miller, Karen Bellone & Lisa Rinzler, Johanna S. Meyers & Alexandra Hartmann, Stephanie Artz & Mark Howell, Sara Brown & NYC, Maja Rajenovich & Julia Sterling, and Lone Wolf & Cub.
Jennifer Miller & Jennifer Monson have a sporadic, on-going dance collaboration. In this performance they will continue their investigation of improvised unison with reference to Merce Cunningham, Anna Halprin & Chris Cochrane. Miller is founder & director of Circus Amok, and professor at Pratt Institute. Monson is founder & artistic director of iLAND (interdisciplinary Laboratory of Art Nature and Dance), and professor at University of Illinois.
Death By Unnatural Causes (1992), short film by Karen Bellone & Lisa Rinzler. This work is a visceral homage to those living and passing under the shadow of AIDS in a world run amok.
Alexandra Hartmann & Johanna S. Meyers will perform stunts never seen by anyone. Perform things never ever done…in a reunion performance of long time collaborators. Dance With My Wall, Please! is a series of love duets and solos with Tanya Gagne’s wall.
Dancer Stephanie Artz & guitarist Mark Howell collaborate on interstellar planes, notes, movements, gestures, waves of sound/space exploring alternative realities through parallel universes of dance and music. She is live; he is molecular.
Sara Brown & New York is a West Coast Riot Grrl living and loving in NYC, a freelance photographer who walked straight off the bus into the circus via Tanya’s Trapeze Loft. Tonight, she’ll share with us some of her great partner shots. www.sarabrown.net
Maja Rajenovich (Brooklyn) & Julia Sterling (San Francisco) will attempt the transcontinental communication between two. This brief exposition: Air Of Breathing Under A Blanket gets warm in a confined virtual reality of contrived privacy. Another reunion performance made possible by the Jetsons.
Lone Wolf & Cub is Ryan Sawyer on drums & Suzanne Rogaleski on trapeze. They light up the night sky through their passionate conversation, responding to one another in time and space, in wondrous, daring optimism.
