What is Modern Dance?
Join us for a rare opportunity and insider experience
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, MamLuft&Co. Dance presents a full showcase of works created by Company Members in the New Dance Laboratory, the culmination of a half-season choreography incubator.
Corrinne Bailey, Claire Dieringer, Susan Honer, Juan Gabriel Martinez Rubio, and Hannah Williamson will present pieces created on their professional Company peers in the beautiful, new Kennedy Heights Arts Center Lindner Annex.
In a highly unique opportunity, following each piece, the choreographer will join the audience for a moderated, short, 7-minute, direct dialogue between choreographer and audience. This provides a fun and engaging opportunity both for artists to consider reactions to their work and for audiences to gain insider access into the creative process and influence further development of the dance pieces.
Join us for this rare event that won’t be repeated!
Juan Gabriel Martinez Rubio
Juan Gabriel Martinez Rubio presents a work inspired by the painting “Woman Leaving the Psychoanalyst” (Remedios Varo) and by the life of Carlos Castaneda (a Peruvian anthropologist who became well-known for his drug-fueled attempts to manipulate time and space). Martinez’s choreography for three women, in three sections, explores a state of sleep called hypnagogic hallucination. Also known as “sleep hallucination,” it is a vivid sensation that can involve numerous senses and occurs while entering sleep.
A work by Claire Dieringer imagines the depositing of persons into a realm of darkness and decay, where earth disintegrates beneath feet and vision is dim. The new inhabitants traverse unfamiliar territory with compromised perception.
A two-part solo by Susan Honer (with original music by MamLuft&Co. Dance Composer-In-Residence, Sean Simon) explores an experiential yin and yang. The first section of the work explores the moment right before an honest truth bursts forward. The second section is a response (referencing classical Modern Dance): after releasing what has been held inside, the soloist finds clarity and strength.
“What We Want,” a quirky trio choreographed by Corrinne Bailey, reflects on the present sociopolitical state. Three females sweep the stage back and forth, tired of waiting to hear what others have determined for them. Each explores her own choices, but together, they create a new path.
A full-ensemble work by Hannah Williamson explores the mind of a woman from an era ruled by decorum and outward appearances. Madness and hysteria expand as she struggles to find temperance.
