VISION COLLABORATION NIGHTS

Thursday December 12th, 2013

107 Suffolk St
New York, NY 10002
United States
7:30PM – 8:00PM – Thickets

Dance / Choreography – Rachel Bernsen
Cornet / Composition – Taylor Ho Bynum
Rachel Bernsen’s After The Meadow, Before The Forest and the duo Thickets, delves into the metaphorical resonances of returning to a more natural state and many stages of change along that path. It engages the generative tensions between unison and counterpoint, structure and improvisation, and interdependence and independence as they relate to sound and movement.

8:15PM – 8:45PM – Vision In Handcuffs
Choreography / Dance / Text / Installation – Patricia Nicholson
Composition / bass / doson ghoni / Text – William Parker
Nicholson & Parker’s Vision In Handcuffs utilizes words, (spoken or sung), movement and tonal structure, video and installations to paint pictures that are dreamlike and sometimes narrative about Vision as a character. Transformation in real-time and dream-time becomes a possibility through the magic of art as present.

9:00PM – 9:30PM – After Maracaibo in Venezuela
Score – Yoshiko Chuma
Music – Jason Kao Hwang
4 Dance Solos : Rebeca Medina / Miriam Paker / Tatyana Tenenbaum / Yoshiko Chuma
Yoshiko Chuma’s After Maracaibo in Venezuela – 4 solos is the latest iteration in the π=3.14 series.
