See work from:

devynnemory/ beastproductions

devynn emory presents Wait for the picture, while I wait for the wave, a destruction, blending, renewal and revision of prior evening length works made by two artists. This work is an honesty of labor, an unveiling of essences, dynamics, and unknowns.

Dominique Porte/ Système D [LiftOff Resident Artist]

Dominique Porte presents Hors JE, in which the creator and performer is haunted by the fear of endlessly repeating of the same schemas, of rambling on gesturally. Fiery choreographer Dominique Porte re-examines her approach to creation. Between a filmed segment of some thirty experienced dancers and neophytes – and its live reinterpretation, we take a troubling plunge into her intimate world, where we find ourselves front row and center during the elaboration of both the piece and of the larger work itself.

Emilie Roberts in collaboration with George Stamos

Emilie Roberts presents Rematch. Roberts has commissioned Montreal choreographer George Stamos to create this solo exploring her roller derby persona, legs.

Malcolm Low/ Formal Structure

Malcolm Low presents Speakeasy/DEVOTION, an abstract multidisciplinary dance on the themes of faith, ritual and passion – in religion, sports, art, sex – and our devotion to all of it. With dance, video, music, text and puppetry, the work is rooted in his experience as an African American Pentecostal gay man. We will explore the parallels and contrasts of the various ecstasies experienced by these followers and believers, fans and players. Malcolm Low is happy to be collaborating with Onome Ekhe as Art Director/Dramaturg and Ben Coleman as sound designer.

Sita Frederick/ Areytos Performance Works

Sita Frederick/Areytos Performance Works presents Otro Lado, an excerpt from their latest site-specific project Why Did the Pollo Cross the Calle?…To get to the Otro Lado, for three performers dancing in chicken-wire fences. APW has developed sections of the work at artistic residencies at Casita Maria Center for the Arts and Culture (Spring 2014) and New Dance Alliance LiftOff Creation and Business Residency (August 2014) and will be in residence this August as part of LMCC’s Process Space.
