Lisa Dershin LinkUp Fall 2010 Showcase.
Duel with an Orchid
by LinkUp Artist Emma Draves
An exploration into the disparate techniques of modern dance and Bharata Natyam (classical South Indian dance).
"This work is primarily a movement study. But there seems no denying the subject of Identity: The question of my own identity, nor the broader picture of individual identity in this world where the black and white has melded into gray." - Emma Draves
a/part (like before we ever were, but with no after)
by LinkUP Artist Lily Emerson
Hundreds of millennia after mankind has disappeared, humanity's legacy is alive: a sentient, collective being which evolved from the plastic we've filled our world with. Moved by mythical imaginings of their makers, these ever shifting, ever changing, never dying beings extol the powers of Man, sing the praises of almighty Disintegration, and wonder how on Earth they can do as those powerful gods once did: die out.
Links Hall's Lisa Dershin LinkUP program supports independent artists and collaborations in the research of ideas and development of new innovative work in their movement based practices. The six-month residency program annually gives four emerging artists free weekly studio time and a fully produced showcase to perform their work; a stipend to support their endeavors; and peer support/feedback with work-in-progress events.
