About Iona Kewney & Joseph Quimby
Iona Kewney's work is balanced between dance, hysteria and performance art; the mentality of taking things beyond the limits of exertion, testing human will and physical endurance, bordering on the compulsions of madness.
Methods of movement are drawn from the imagination of an obsessive compulsive driven state. The detailed space in between is hungry with sonic and physical imagery, searchings, power and fragility- controls and chaos.
The dimensions/ weight of the space evolve in the layered, building and ghostly sound of fallen and coming empire by electric guitar with effects/delay pedals and voice of inner charge.
Collected Echoes of the mind, sound thrust forth movement strategy in shapes. A dark turbulent breeding force of undulating layers and loops in live creation.
Thoughts and disorder are patterned through Handbalancing and Contortion and inbred style of movement through mentality. To perform inner out state reshaping visions and sonicscape in the physical.
A performance of 'another worldy' sonic and physical breeding in space. Raw human presence in totality;oddity, beauty and brutality and persistance.
Iona Kewney initially trained in Fine Art and became a painter/printmaker. She went on to attend the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam. Iona has been performing solos for 15 years with live musicians and/or objects/artworks and improvised texts of her own. Throughout this time she has worked in some major Belgium dance companies and also trained at Cirkuspiloterna School in Sweden. Iona regularly makes drawings and paintings for exhibitions.
About Daria Kaufman, Bianca Brzezinski & Richard Warp
Dancers Daria Kaufman and Bianca Brzezinski collaborate with composer Richard Warp on a new dance theater piece that approaches sound and movement as communication its deconstruction and (re)formation. Taking sound and movement cues from the audience, each other, and a pre-recorded score, the three artists perform a dialogue wrought with misinterpretation, interruption, and occasionally, understanding. Warp's live, electronic noisescape acts as accompaniment and intruder throughout the exchange, setting all three performers on equal footing.
Daria Kaufman is a dancer and choreographer with a history of interdisciplinary collaboration, spanning genres and fields of study that include performance art, dance film, sound design, and multimedia installation. She has performed and presented work at venues throughout the Bay Area.
Bianca Brzezinski began Opal Street Improvisation Dance Theater in 2010. Her repertoire concentrates on psychological and social movement.
Richard Warp is an award-winning composer of contemporary music based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With a body of work ranging from traditional chamber ensembles to conceptual works using interactive electronics, field recording, tape and scientific instruments, his broad exposure has given voice to a unique aesthetic that belies his roots in both classical and contemporary styles.
About Ken Ueno & Matt Ingalls:
The duo of Ken Ueno (vocals) and Matt Ingalls (clarinet) bring together an arsenal of extended techniques for an experience that defies classical expectations of sounds that can be made on voice and clarinet. Ueno sings overtones, multi-band multiphonics, sub-tones, and throat sings. Ingalls' clarinet technique includes circular-breathing, multiphonics, and various breath effects, as well as an unique hybrid-timbre polyphonic effect. Their performances often contrast different instrumental techniques while juxtaposing an acoustic, and mobile, sensibility that focuses on the individual, versus an amplified, and stationary, sensibility that evokes an architectural sense of space.
