Jan. 20th Studies Project: The Role of Class in Current Dance Practices

Organized by MR in collaboration with Beth Gill, Lance Gries, Eva Karczag and Gwen Welliver

What role does “class” play in current dance practices? As contemporary teaching artists attempt to articulate new methods of transmitting knowledge through the body, so too are performers of contemporary dance and performance work drifting away from relying exclusively on traditional and codifiable techniques. How can we get the most out of the structures that exist and/or create new ones as we relate these models to the way people make work now? This conversation with teaching artists and practitioners will engage these seemingly intangible questions with concrete practices and proposals.

Participating speakers include:
Julian Barnett
Michelle Boulé
Wendell Cooper
Barbara Forbes
Zvi Gotheiner
K.J. Holmes
John Jasperse
Joanne Kotze
Nia Love

Collective Unconscious

This year, I’ve been in the process of excavating imagery from Vaudeville and silent clown materials.  During this process, it has been inspiring to witness the many cultural associations, past to the present from these eras.

I am currently reviving a duet of Buster Keaton dancing with himself from The Playhouse. Costume designer, Andy Jordan and I have been working to re-create the Keaton double in original dress.  Recently, Andy came upon the John Galliano Spring 2011 show – a mash up of Keaton and Chaplin imagery.

To see Dick Tracy-esque, leisure suits packed on a Keaton base and punk rock Chaplin, chimney sweepers – with white face, black eyeliner – in one glance, moves me through decades of history. Read the rest of this entry »
