Tuesday, October 7 6:15pm (doors open at 6pm) Gibney Dance at 890 Broadway
Proposed by Philip Ellis Foster
With: Douglas Dunn & Steven Taylor, Melanie Maar & Kenta Nagai, Edisa Weeks & Katie Down
Each pair of panelists will make a brief presentation on their collaborative work, followed by a more general discussion moderated by Philip Ellis Foster.
Musicians and dancers have a long and storied relationship with one another, from traditional forms that wed music and dance to narrative storytelling, to orchestral ballets, and on to Cage and Cunningham collaborations. This evening explores the multifaceted ways artists are addressing this relationship today, with a focus on musicians that perform live with dancers and movement-based performance work. Artists will discuss and examine their various dynamic approaches to collaboration between and across these fields. All are invited to attend and participate in the discussion.
