Featuring dance works by Charlotte Bydwell, Kirstin Kapustik, Katherine Partington and Adam H. Weinert
A graduate of the Juilliard School, Charlotte Bydwell, will present an excerpt from her solo performance "Woman of Leisure and Panic", which premiered in May 2011 as part of the 8th Annual soloNova Festival at P.S. 122. In this whimsical combination of dance and theatre, she depicts a young woman's quest to find balance in a life where every achievement seems to bring further uncertainty. Watch as she struggles to remain financially stable, creatively productive, physically fit, romantically satisfied, and still standing...or should she sit? womanofleisureandpanic.tumblr.com
Choreographer and producer Kirstin Kapustik will present her newest work You Know I Love You, set to the music of the 60's and 70's, is a comical depiction of interactions between individuals and belonging to a group. This work premiered at Dixon place in fall 2011 as part of the Underexposed Series.
"Dreams of a Common House Fly", by Katherine Partington, is an excerpt of a work-in-progress first inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" and then transformed into its current dream-like state with a focus on collection and memory. This work was created in part of 2011 Brooklyn Arts Exchange Upstart Festival.
Choreographed by Adam H. Weinert and directed by Philippe Tremlbay-Berberi, "Match Box Dances" is a short, four-part dancefilm shot on the streets, sidewalks and loading docks of DUMBO, one of New York's most quickly changing neighborhoods. The product of an inter-disciplinary collaboration, Match Box Dances is a snapshot of ongoing investigations of portraiture in dance on camera. The project explores the intersection of public, private and personal gestures, while employing a creative and technical regard to immediacy similar to that of an instant Polaroid: The content, creation and production arise necessarily 'of-the-moment', and produce an artifact that functions as both document and art object.
Since it's release in April of 2011, Match Box Dances has been awarded "Editor's Pick" for May 2011 in Dance Magazine and will be featured in their August issue. Additionally, Match Box Dances has been selected to be screened as part of: Bushwick Open Studios (excerpt), New York June 2011; Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival, Montreal June 2011; and Cinedans, Amsterdam 2011. We are also in conversation with Hamel Bloom from Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema in Colorado, and Nuria Font at VideoDance Barcelona in Spain.
