I spent the month of June in residence with Tori Lawrence + Co. at Playa Summer Lake in Oregon.  Along with filming our new project ‘Plop!’ on the desert lake, we performed a duet version of JUNKSPACE at the Alger Theater in Lakeview with TL+Co. dancer Jungwoong Kim and screened our latest in-process film project.

I began the Spring with a performance of Tori Lawrence’s in-progress work Junkspace at Movement Research at the Judson Church on March 19th.  Look for news of the work’s full premiere in the Fall HERE.  Later in the Spring, I will be traveling with TL+Co. to Brunakra in Sweden for a month-long residency to continue work on the project, followed by a residency in June at Playa in Oregon.

I will also be continuing work with Beau Hancock on his new project, Blue Highways, which will take the form of a dance on film by late summer.  The title of the work references a book by William Least Heat Moon.  In this travelogue, Least Heat Moon navigates the backroads of America, charting a course less traveled. This purposeful navigation by Least Heat Moon through the less obvious but potentially more rewarding pathways through America mirrors our desire for this dance on camera: to navigate the less obvious but potentially more rewarding pathways of movement through the body.

Stay tuned!

Happy 2018 from Stone Depot!  On January 9th, I will be performing a new work in progress by Beau Hancock at Movement Research’s Open Performance Series.  We have been exploring the road less traveled… finding new pathways to our phrase material and through our bodies in the work, currently titled Blue Highways. The showing is informal, and begins at 7 pm at Eden’s Expressway (537 Broadway, 4th Fl , New York, NY 10012).

New solo by Tori Lawrence + Co.

•September 5, 2017 • Leave a Comment

This October, I am traveling to Chicago to perform Film No. 7, a new solo by Tori Lawrence+Co.  The work “responds to one of Yoko Ono’s film scores created in 1968. The performance is set in a room with many time worlds in it. It’s about disappearance. And not listening. The piece incorporates digital projection and a peculiar set that bridges many worlds together.  It looks at how a body can be marginalized… how limits can act as borders… and how borders can make dialogue between bodies disappear.”  The piece will be part of Marginalia:  An Evening of Performance, curated by KU professor James Moreno, at Links Hall.
