This concert is a culmination of Mimi Garrard’s work for the stage (1964-2001) and her work for video(2001-present). Two works that combine live dance and video will be presented, A Single Hound featuring Austin Selden and Untranslatable featuring Demetia Hopkins-Greene. The third work on the program is a new work by Austin Selden.
We will be showing an excerpt of our newest work Boys and Girls. We are excited to have a platform to experiment with this new project. It will be funny and entertaining and there will be nudity. This will be the beginning of a long research project into gender and sexuality--looking at movies, media, and books from past and present and politics of current times.
An all-women's contact improvisation lab weekend hosted by Sarah Konner and Shura Baryshnikov at the Peaceable Barn in Redding, Connecticut.
In this advanced laboratory for only women dancers, we will have the opportunity to investigate questions of athleticism, attraction, intimacy, and risk level with our partners. Through a lens of technicality, we will aim to unlock the possibilities of our freest flying, subtle softness, safety, and flirtatious love affairs in our dances together; accessing this form in its fullness with other women.
For intermediate/advanced dancers

A trio in collaboration with Michigan-based choreographer/ performer Amy Chavasse. The trio happens in a world and time created by polyrhythms, original songs and words that mean things other than what they are. Emi Nomo was lost, bells are for lovers, and each of the three have their own version of the story. It is a love story left in the sun too long, that builds to ecstatic highs and collisions.
February 25-26, 2017 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY.
