Noise and silence: the government doesn’t own us!

Well known in Spain as performance pioneers, Catalan company Societat Doctor Alonso brings the New York premiere of Anarchy, an experiment in chaos and order, a performance where the audience takes part by playing guitars from their seats. Semolina Tomic, the performer, executes the choreography that explores the musicality of movement as the piece navigates control, chaos, order, and the question of who “owns” art. Societat Doctor Alonso combines dance and theater in creating a performance language fundamentally concerned with displacement.

Roseli Rocha is an artist and DJ based out of Pico-Union in Los Angeles. She is a first generation, queer, woman of indigenous descent.

Rocha, known as Black Lotus or Frijoles Negros from Chulita Vinyl Club LA collects everything from jazz to rancheras, but is notorious for playing a soulful mix of Spanish covers oldies, and psychedelic rock.

Definitions: Something within us demands labels and definitions. What is dance? What is “performance art”? Do they co-exist? And—does it really matter?

Choreographer Barbie Diewald’s Eighteen Refrains Re: Rhoda is performed by five dancers with live interactive electronics by Jazer Giles. Drawing from Virginia Woolf’s novel The Waves, with interweaving threads of cicadas, Beethoven’s late quartets, origami fortune tellers, and a catalogue of impossible physiological tasks, the dance comprises five transparent solos, each taking on vestiges of the others.

Thea Little’s Successful is based on research into five different personalities: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Bjork, and David Bowie, as impetus for the voices, words, facial expressions, and physical movements in the piece. The work explores the artist’s intrigue with the idea that the ambitions and egos of artists and politicians overlap in comic ways. Read more

Building on their critically acclaimed works over the last six years, Julian Barnett and Jocelyn Tobias‘s ODE2FOOL questions the notion of artistic devotion by excavating the dances that exist in their dreams, the ones that have yet to be realized. Part opera, part confessional, ODE2FOOL acts as an ontological study of connection, commitment, and resilience, and follows three performers as they uncover the deeper currents of their artistic motivations. See a preview of their work below!

Anya Liftig, known for her intriguing, multidisciplinary performances, will present a new iteration of her Face Ballet. Performed in a tent onstage, Liftig’s “face dance,” which is projected from inside the tent using light and a live feed from her camera, creates a striking choreographic shadow dance on the walls of the tent.
