Performance/installation/event NOW. explores the evolving intimacy of dance with new media. Artists perform live in NYC alongside life sized Skype projected performers from Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Holland, France, Japan, Brazil, Germany, Greece and Estonia. Experienced across borders of time and distance, the work presents ideas of live-ness, time, and the individuation and bonding inherent in the sharing of movement. Made in collaboration with dance media artist Paul Galando and partially produced by the NYU Dance and New Media Department, Now addresses time as one elastic substance, and embraces the perfect imperfections within both body and technology.

Choreography: Pat Catterson

Dancers: Gry Bech-Hanssen (Norway), Irina Baldini (Holland), Brynt Beitman (NYC), Mauro Sebastian Cacciatore (Argentina), Emilia Gasiorek (Belgium/Denmark),Pierre Guilbault (NYC), Sarah Haarmann (NYC), Gina Ianni (NYC), Tomoko Maeda (Japan), Adele Nickel (NYC), Maia Ramnath (NYC), Rodolfo Saraiva (Brazil/Germany), Sania Strimbakou (Greece), Macy Sullivan (NYC), Asha Thomas (France), Joshua Tuason (NYC), and Maria Uppin (Estonia).

Over the last eight years, Catterson has been fine-tuning a creation process that embraces rather than defies dance's ephemerality and seeks to utilize the dancer as a full artist rather than as a well-tooled machine. Her recent choreography has reflected on philosophical ideas of sense of self and on how to emphasize live-ness in performance for the audience and for the dancers without resorting to improvisation. Her interest in philosophy (her minor in undergraduate studies) and its intersection with neuroscience and physics today, continue to inspire her work. In this her 108th dance, all of these interests coalesce.

Catterson says, "As I get older I experience time differently. Of course there is the cliché that time feels to pass more quickly the older one gets. It is an acceleration that makes one feel the unity of past present and future, as if they are becoming one, or always were one elastic substance. I more intensely experience the present, albeit within a sea of recollections. The present is what is here NOW for me, or more accurately, when I am."  

Merce Cunningham said, "Dance is an art in space and time. The object of the dancer is to obliterate that." This piece will demonstrate just that.
