2/26-COMBO: Tony Conrad + Moving Parts / PIMA Group
This ticket is for both the 7:30 performance of Moving Parts / PIMA Group AND the 9:00pm Tony Conrad organ concert.
Tony Conrad is considered one of the first "minimal" composer / performers, associated in his early period with La Monte Young, John Cale, Henry Flynt and legendary New York underground filmmaker Jack Smith. Conrad is also acknowledged as a pioneer of structuralist filmmaking (his 1960s film The Flicker is one of the key early works of the "structural" film movement), and in recent years he has presented and performed at festivals and events worldwide. During the last ten years, Conrad has focused on music and performing recent works in new music venues, museums and clubs in the US and internationally. He has composed more than a dozen works, primarily for solo amplified violin with amplified strings, using special tunings and scales.
Specific. Abstract. Specifically abstract. Meg is an all around movement geek. She makes astonishingly specific movement with dancers who love discussion. Match vs. Match pulls apart a dance while putting it back together, in a relentless search for identity and connection. A layered examination of architecture and space and the dancing body within (How many parts are you composed of? How about now?), all is revealed over time. Sometimes slowly. Sometimes all at once.
PIMA Group so clearly defies categorization it's not dance, its not theater, its not music, and yet its all of these things. Featuring live music and video projections, Ohhorror is a theatrical re-imagining of the evocative moods and mysterious feelings found in horror films and reveals how the cliches can get at the psychological essence of personal nightmares, inner fears, demons.
