I’m really glad that Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours turned out to be so productive for me. I was able to wrap my head around the ideas that were all circling in my head.
From the NDA Blog
Lendava is a very quiet place – it took me one week to find a restaurant open in the evening – and it is a good walking distance to counter a big dinner of local cuisine – did I say cuisine – mmmmmmmmm I have slowed down and the sun is out and Lendava is full of surprises. Now that two artists have left I am the new kid on the block and have my own space in the front gallery. In a residency it is hard to anticipate how things will go, as I delve further into “Suspending and Other Tricks” – or you might say tripping and falling. I have given in to two challenges, first, a problem editing video and sound on my new laptop – answer: that corny song will not be made “cool” – I’m giving in to corny; and second, artists working in the next studio – I have accepted three weeks of voyeurism, mine and theirs.

Thank you to Dixon Place, our season artists, audience members, Board of Directors, our partners Dance New Amsterdam, Studio 303 and the Community Education Center, volunteers, in-kind donors, funders and NDA’s team who made the 25th Anniversary Performance Mix Festival a stunner!
The highlight of the festival was 25×3. Twenty five past Performance Mix artists created three minute works to unique scores by Alexis O’Hara. Without pauses the work flowed with the most beautiful transitions. Check out all the great things that the 25x 3 artists had to say (below), and watch these interviews with reflections after the festival of Owen Chapman, 50collectiVe, and Jana Jevtovic!
