Process Memoir 6: thenowlater
Journey Two, Mind
Johnnie Cruise Mercer and TheREDprojectNY
Fri, Sep 25, 7 pm, $10
Company/Choreographic Director Johnnie Cruise Mercer leads a developing multi-disciplinary ensemble through a six-year self-reflective (de)construction process.
Process memoir 6: thenowlater is a multi-layered ‘movement’ choreography charted as four journeys: (Body - Mind - Soul - Heart). Built as an artifact, an exodus toward black (embodied) freedom, PM6: thenowlater Journey Two treks into the mind, as the body calls on actions of allowance, surrender, and embrace.
Process Memoir 6: thenowlater marks itself as the sixth of ten chapters within, A Process Anthology: The Decade from Hell, and the Decade that Followed Suite.
One door closes, another opens…and the space between
Alice Klock, Florian Lochner and guest artists of FLOCK
Sun, Oct 11, 2 pm, $10
Using doors as a metaphor for life changing moments FLOCK and a team of international movement artists explore times of shift. One door closes, we look for the next opening, and we interact with the space between.
The work will feature the creative artistry and collaboration of Jacqueline Burnett, Rena Butler, the Ebinum Brothers, Jonathan Fredrickson, Nicole Ishimaru, Alice Klock, Florian Lochner, Juliano Nunes and David Schultz with music composition by Michael Wall.
Dance Within Your Dance: A Digital Remix
Passion Fruit Dance Company
Fri, Nov 6, 7 pm, $10
What is the groove? How do you find it? How much weight does it hold in self-expression? In Dance Within Your Dance, Tatiana Desardouin invites you to connect with the techniques, rhythms and essence of hip-hop and house dance.
This work shows how, in these communities, we develop, struggle, connect, and create our own and collective signatures. Welcome.
