EDWARD HENKEL’S MOVEMENTTALKS

Discussing Dance as a Catalyst for Change

 

New York, NY: July 21, 2014— 92nd Street Y’s Harkness Dance Center presents a season of rich and varied programming. The annual Harkness Dance Festival, with its Stripped/Dressed format, includes a company rooted in the beginning of the Dance Center, The Martha Graham Dance Company, but also Adam Barruch, Vicky Shick, The Bang Group and Sally Silvers. 92Y is also presenting little-seen works by Andy deGroat, a look at Pooh Kaye’s influence and performances from Joanna Kotze, Sandra Loring, Esme Boyce and many others. Dances and dancers from overseas are represented in our yearly Out of Israel program, as well as programs with Nai-Ni Chen, Kathryn Posin, and Maya Dance Theatre of Singapore. As always 92Y’s Dance Center revives and honors the past, with classic works by Agnes de Mille, Merce Cunningham’s Doubles, a celebration of the late, great Clark Center and a talk, with Wendy Whelan, about Irina Baronova. Those are just a few highlights. Below, an overview of the season, starting with the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival. Tickets for all events are on sale July 21.

 

 

92Y HARKNESS DANCE FESTIVAL – 21st SEASON

STRIPPED / DRESSED: DANCE CURATED BY DOUG VARONE

Friday, February 20 through Sunday, March 22

 

Tickets $20; www.92Y.org/harknessfestival or 212.415.5500

 

Doug Varone, whose company is in residence at 92Y’s Harkness Dance Center, returns to curate five weeks of innovative dance, using his popular “Stripped/Dressed” format. Each artist spends the first half of the evening stripping down a dance – talking about it, showing how it was built and giving the audience a direct experience of dance-making without lights or costumes. After the intermission, the work is presented fully “dressed.” Varone has chosen five artists who vary greatly in their vocabulary and vision.

 

92Y Harkness Dance Festival, WEEK ONE

ADAM BARRUCH: BELLADONNA

Fri, Feb 20 and Sat, Feb 21 at 8 pm; Sun, Feb 22 at 3 pm, from $25

Festival curator Doug Varone says up-and-coming choreographer Barruch “uses movement in a beautiful, lyrical way to tell stories, and that’s a real rarity with people of his generation right now.” Belladonna is an evening-length duet from longtime collaborators Adam Barruch and Chelsea Bonosky, loosely based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story “Rappaccini’s Daughter.”

 

92Y Harkness Dance Festival, WEEK TWO

THE BANG GROUP: TAP LAB

Fri, Feb 27 and Sat, Mar Feb 28 at 8 pm; Sun, Mar 1 at 3 pm, from $25

In David Parker’s new initiative, Tap Lab, contemporary dancers with roots in tap join forces with The Bang Group to create up-to-the-minute rhythm dance. Parker is using a range of scores that emphasize rhythm and body percussion – sometimes, as Varone says, “the body is the instrumentation.” Watch what happens when Parker works with dancers to reflect choreographically the ideas of the scores.

 

92Y Harkness Dance Festival, WEEK THREE

VICKY SHICK DANCE: PATHÉTIQUE, MINIATURES IN DETAILS

Fri, Mar 6 and Sat, Mar 7 at 8 pm; Sun, Mar 8 at 3 pm, from $25

Shick’s work highlights the intimacies among dancers who inhabit the slightly wacky worlds that she creates. “She builds vivid landscapes that are very detail-oriented. There’s an incredible amount of nuance and almost a sense of etching in her work,” says Varone. In Pathétique, Miniatures in Details, Shick builds on a series of solos and duets, enhanced by the textured sound score by Elise Kermani and the whimsical costumes by Barbara Kilpatrick, both longtime collaborators.

 

92Y Harkness Dance Festival, WEEK FOUR

MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY

Fri, Mar 13 and Sat, Mar 14 at 8 pm; Sun, Mar 15 at 3 pm, from $25

This is a sort of “beautiful homecoming,” says Varone, referring to Martha Graham’s early teaching and performances at 92Y. Now this storied company is stretching the boundaries of the Graham legacy and experimenting with ways to give 21st century audiences different points of access to the Graham masterworks. Using media, narration and dance, artistic director Janet Eilber shows how the company is using its archival material to reconstruct Graham classics, and the Graham tradition to create new works.

 

92Y Harkness Dance Festival, WEEK FIVE

SALLY SILVERS: BONOBO MILKSHAKE

Fri, Mar 20 and Sat, Mar 21 at 8 pm; Sun, Mar 22 at 3 pm, from $25

Bonobo Milkshake has been performed only once, in 2012, but New York Times critic Claudia La Rocco chose it one of the top three dance events of the year. Now this innovative piece, in which Stephen Sondheim’s musicals and themes act as a for new work, is back. Varone says of Silvers, “It’s almost as if she places into movement all the things we think about but would never say.”

EDWARD HENKEL’S MOVEMENTTALKS | HOLOSCENES MEETS ARISING: DANCE AND WATER

Ben Dolphin and Lars Jan

When Lars Jen put dancers in three enormous tanks of water and asked them to carry out ritual gestures and everyday motions while the water precipitously rose and fell, he created a memorable experience. But he was aiming for more than that – an investigation of humanity’s troubled relationship with water, which is becoming more dire as the 21st century progresses. Devastating floods and droughts are becoming the norm. For this probing talk, Edward Henkel interviews Jen, along with Ben Dolphin, who has explored the body’s adjustments to water in Arising, a 3D underwater dance film. Dolphin and his dancers will demonstrate how he plans out the work before anyone jumps into the pool. No tanks at this talk, but plenty of video and a discussion of the beauty and terror of water.
