philadelphiadanceprojects FALL 2016
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THESE EVENTS IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER
a mini-festival on October 15-19
spotlighting the career and influence of postmodernist choreographer Yvonne Rainer.
Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16 It all begins with a two-day workshop led by Pat Catterson on Rainer’s seminal work Trio A. The workshop examines Trio A’s philosophical, physical and historical relevance. Participants will learn part of the dance, create their own compositions and engage in a discussion of its ideas, contexts and their experiences,
Trio A workshop: 1-5PM at the Performance Garage (1515 Brandywine Street).
“Fifty years later there is still much to be learned from Yvonne Rainer’s 1966 influential work Trio A,”said Pat Catterson, Rainer’s long-time rehearsal assistant. “Trio A’s form, vocabulary, and performing stance challenged traditional choreographical methods and modes of presentation. This workshop provides an introduction to an aesthetic that has served as a springboard for succeeding generations of dance makers.”
Wednesday, October 19 at 6PM features the Philadelphia premiere of the documentary film Feelings are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer by former Philadelphia filmmaker Jack Walsh, with a post-screening discussion with both Walsh and Rainer.
Following the film, at 8PM, Yvonne Rainer will present a lecture,
What’s So Funny? Laughter and Anger in the Time of the Assassins,” an amalgam of jokes and rants around the current emotional and political dilemmas of the artist and concerned citizen.
Both events will be at Christ Church Neighborhood House (20 North American Street).
Admission to the two-day workshop is $35.
Tickets to the Film Screening and Lecture are $25 ($10 for the film only and $20 for the lecture only).
(A special package of the workshop, screening, and lecture is available for $50. Please contact email@example.com)
