Pentacle Presents Fall Further III
Pentacle presents Fall Further III, its annual Fall showcase event for its dance artists. This year we feature four of our Gallery artists: danceTactics performance group, LCTC - Lorraine Chapman The Company, LEIMAY - Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya and The Moving Architects. Joining them is Roster artist David Dorfman Dance.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Keith A. Thompson, danceTactics performance group directs its interest towards dance's capacity to communicate on its own, undressed. The company thrives on seeking out challenges of discovery that takes place within the moment, compositionally and conceptually. Complexity and the articulation of multiple pathways through and between spaces are a main focus. Thompson in collaboration with his dancers intensely value researching the fusion of theater and contemporary dance. With a passionate focus of movement investigation in dance and physical theater we look to create a connection somewhere between abstraction and narrative for the viewer.
Boston based LCTC was formed from Lorraine Chapman's exploration of a very specific aesthetic and as a logical next step to her already impressive achievements as an independent choreographer. Chapman's understanding of the art form, as well as a penetrating study of life and of people, has always been a powerful source of inspiration in her work. She embraces and executes musicality with a theatrical approach, and explores the versatility of the speed in which one can express themselves through movement. There is an inner fear, an inner joy, an inner passion, an inner ambivalence, and an inner contradictory experience that drives the outer physicality of her work. Her choreographic vocabulary possesses a strong, personal signature which challenges dancers and audiences both kinetically and emotionally. Through her dynamic movement and compelling theatricality she is able to blend together even the most incongruous ingredients.
Under the name of LEIMAY, the Brooklyn, NY based artistic duo of Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya develop, create and tour individual and collaborative works ranging from sculptural, video, and light installations to photography, training projects and contemporary performances. Ximena Garnica is a Colombian-born interdisciplinary choreographer, director, artist, curator and producer. Shige Moriya is a Japanese-born video and installation artist. He studied architecture at Kinki University in Osaka. Moriya has also been active as a curator and producer.
The Moving Architects, relocated from Chicago to the New York metropolitan area, has its work informed by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton's heightened awareness of her experience of physical spaces long steeped in the passage of time. As an artist she seeks to channel research of places, structures, their histories, and associated cultural transformations into choreography, exploring the embodiment of past and distant spaces in the heightened present of live performance. She takes a highly visual approach to choreography, assessing movement phrases based on their filmic as well as thematic properties.
David Dorfman Dance has performed extensively in New York City and throughout North and South America, Great Britain, and Europe. David Dorfman and the company's dancers and artistic collaborators have been honored with eight New York Dance and Performance ("Bessie") Awards. The company is fresh off their successful DanceMotion USA educational exchange and performance tour of Turkey, Armenia, and Tajikistan, residency at Bates Summer festival and culminating performance at BAM Fisher.
