Triskelion Arts presents Abby Bender & Cassie Tunick  | Open: 05/15/14 Close: 05/18/14
Drawn into a first collaboration in a room that will soon be destroyed, the performers investigate what they really want from each other and what they are missing in 'Totally Other'. With dances stolen from vaudeville, songs borrowed from nature, and a vow of simplicity, secret exchanges grounded in physical humor become a social event. Join them at the end of an era as they are lit by random flashes of a playful mind and held together by stubborn perseverance. Created and performed by Abby Bender and Cassie Tunick.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Vangeline Theater - 5th  | Open: 02/07/14 Close: 02/09/14
5th
A New Butoh Sci-Fi Fantasy by Vangeline Theater

5 Dances about the 5th:
5th dimension, 5th element, 5th position,
5th amendment, 5th of Beethoven.

Featuring critically acclaimed Vangeline and the Vangeline Theater, and musical arrangement by Ysanne Spevack (Smashing Pumpkins)

Since its inception in 2002, Vangeline Theater has fused the post-apocalyptic vision of Butoh (the Japanese dance form that developed after Hiroshima) with the near-cinematic aesthetic of 21st Century science-fiction noir. Vangeline utilizes Butoh techniques to dance the invisible Life Resonance; in Butoh, our humanity comes from embracing ourselves fully, finding beauty and strength from the depth of our fragility. The company has been heralded in several publications, and was "one of the best Dance Visits of 2011" according to Time Out Chicago.

Triskelion Arts presents a shared evening with lonely goat and Kawamura the 3rd.

Take an adventure, complete with new creatures and landscapes, as choreographer Sophie Maguire delves deeper into the woods that harbor the characters of lonely goat's last work (55 Short Stories II). This tale takes a keen interest in the gentleness and loneliness of monsters, telling the story of where beasts come from and where they go. Combining innovative, bare bones movement with striking costumes and deconstructed set pieces, this new work gives humanity to the most grotesque and nastiest of woodland creatures.

The latest work by Kawamura the 3rd explores the theme of human relationships, which do not belong to a clear category. It is not love, enemy, friendship, or family. It could be someone you know at work, school, or a place you go often. You may see each other and talk frequently, but you do not cross the border to become something closer. You communicate with each other with a cushion like a cloud. Sometimes the clouds go away and you are able see the real person underneath. The company focuses on creating original body language and exploring the limits of the body's ability, its texture when manipulated and affected by imaginary things.

Triskelion Arts presents cakeface and Fenn & Company  | Open: 01/17/14 Close: 01/18/14
Triskelion Arts presents a shared evening with cakeface and Fenn & Company

cakeface presents alpha pups, linking the outrageous nature of corporate-speak to the desperation and bizarre communication methods seen in the final rounds of 1980's game shows, namely the Winner's Circle of The $25,000 Pyramid and the Fast Money round of Family Feud. This thematic platform, along with synergistic mediums and core competencies, are employed to render personal accounts of awkward communication and reactive experiences. The cast is also available for mastery skills seminars. http://cakefaceart.com/news.html

Share one of life's milestones a wedding with Fenn & Company in You Are Cordially Invited as a group of characters dance their way from the proposal to the happily ever after finale in the only way they know how: comedic, cynical, and quirky. Choreographer Mary-Elizabeth Fenn presents an all-new, full-length work boasting an uncensored storyline filled with unexpected twists. Grab your plus-one and come watch as the company blithely examines this nuptial rite.

Kathy Wasik - Irregular Solids  | Open: 11/22/13 Close: 11/23/13
Wasik's new work, Irregular Solids, seeks to uncover the hidden strata of movement and the mind. What is an alter ego? How might a person become her? Is a dance a sort of alternate universe? Does it have an alter ego? These questions result in a strange world (or multiple worlds) in which the dancers and the dance itself slowly unveil selves within selves.

Performed by Alessandra Larson, Cara Liguori, and Kathy Wasik. Original sound score written and performed by Ethan Frederick Greene.

Jessica Gaynor Dance  | Open: 11/14/13 Close: 11/17/13
Hailed for its "risk-laden" (DIY Dancer) choreography and "sophisticated approach to pure-dance" (The New Yorker), Jessica Gaynor Dance performs pieces that utilize extreme physicality, intricate patterning, and formal structures in an exploration of the complexities of human experience.

In her latest work, Gaynor draws our attention toward intimacy. Through patterns, repetition, and a study of gestures, the piece will explore the subtle shifts that occur between people, the many ways in which individuals react to the same situation, and the variations within relationships. Collaborators include composer Devin Maxwell and dancers Emily Diers, Kyle Gerry, Jordan Risdon, Kristi Tornga, and Matthew Westerby.

This premiere was commissioned through New Music USA's Commissioning Music/USA program, which is made possible by generous annual support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs as well as endowment support from The Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, The Helen F. Whitaker Fund, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trust.

Becky Radway Dance Projects  | Open: 10/24/13 Close: 10/26/13
Becky Radway Dance Projects presents a triumvirate of new works with something for everyone. Included in the program is a delicious short piece, #64, featuring BRDP's heart-racing, signature technical prowess. The company also premieres '219 Gates', an original dance horror film created with director Joel Garland and performer Carlton Ward. Perhaps the very first of its kind, this terrifying spectacle comes to you just in time for a chilling Halloween! Rounding out the evening is a brain-busting ensemble work filled with odd (and even!) mathematical concepts. So, solve this for homework: y = x2 14x + 49. Then, turn in your answers on October 24 26 for this exhilarating experience.

Tough Cookie Dance  | Open: 10/18/13 Close: 10/19/13
Triskelion Arts presents Tough Cookie Dance

It's been said that the secret to happiness is turning your passion into a career. But is bliss within reach if your passion is for modern dance? You might as well tell your parents you're going to become a poet or a mermaid. They'll kvetch, "How will you live? How will you make money?" Josselyn Levinson-Dustin and Michael Richman explore the answers to these pesky questions in their evening of new work that probeswellwork, the jobs dancers take on in order to support their irrational addiction to art. Using polls from the dance community, recorded job interviews, and samplings of different "elevator pitches", this performance addresses just how far some artists are willing to go when they're not dancing. Bring your resume, your availability, and a can-do positive attitudeyou're a shoo-in for the highly esteemed position of audience member.

Blending fable and raw storytelling, music and movement, The Big Mzungu is a timely exploration of the politics of death.

Megan Bascom and Dancers & Second Nature  | Open: 05/02/13 Close: 05/04/13
Megan Bascom & Dancers premiere {tissue}, an expansive work exploring what holds us together. {tissue} is what lies beneath the surface; simultaneously delicate and tender,
strong and stimulative. The piece exposes the layers of presence we sense and experience. Investigating both pain and pleasure, this new project is a reflection of human responsiveness to what and how we feel, echoed in body and mind. Original score by Cale Hawkins.

In Ten Astonishing Mistakes in Reverse, a ferocious and delicately imagined work, Second Nature torques the spare and essential into an unusually orchestrated physical/musical
dialogue. In this visually surreal travelogue of the ordinary, mistakes are reworked back to their core amidst soundscapes, highly physical theater, and altered states of speech. Created and performed by Heather Harpham, Cassie Tunick, and Tanya Calamoneri. Original live music by Danny Tunick.

PLEASE BE ADVISED, there is no late seating allowed for this performance.

If you buy your ticket in advance, your seat is only guaranteed if you arrive by curtain at 8pm. Depending on capacity, we may be able to seat you at intermission.

Tough Cookie Dance & Rebecca M. Sproul and Dancers  | Open: 02/22/13 Close: 02/23/13
The comedic minds of Tough Cookie Dance are at it again. This time the satirical and sarcastic choreographers Josselyn Levinson and Michael Richman, attempt to merge two genres that clearly have nothing to do with each other. 'Acting and Dancing' finally brings the popular art of film acting to the abstract modern dance stage. A type of event the whole world has been greatly anticipating; and by anticipating we meanavoiding. Come watch your favorite notable movie scenes (My Cousin Vinnie, Devil Wears Prada, A Few Good Men and more) pasted together and played out in a way you never believed was possible.

Sitting atop bar stools in ball gowns, Rebecca M. Sproul and Dancers presents an ode to their new home, Brooklyn. They tear out their fear that evil lurks in every dark corner of this city. Called to duty by their newest and cutest, the A-team snarls as they fit safety goggles across their brow; ready for action. They go to work, fighting crime, kicking cats, and drinking their faces off. Get ready to hear their battle yell, these chicks play hard. Eat your heart out, Johnny, they're dancing like you've never seen them before. Laughing their way through the most serious piece they've created so far you'll see all this and more from the creative minds of Rebecca M. Sproul and Dancers.

Shannon Gillen + Guests  | Open: 01/10/13 Close: 01/12/13
Join Shannon Gillen and SGG for their latest project, A Colored Image of the Sun, premiering at Triskelion Arts. This work embodies the centuries-old practice of celebrating Spring's renewal. From within this tradition lies the quandary of a state of anti-death, as the seasons bring forth new life without fail. Confronted with the idea of living forever and with the ritual of dying to make room for renewal, A Colored Image systematically unravels a world that look at the additive, subtractive and exponential expressions of existence.

Arts.Dance

With a pile of humor and without judgment, this new production points a finger at our natural idiosyncrasies, both deliberate and unintentional. Our clothes, our body language, and how we choose to act in any given situation say a lot about the character we present to the world. These tiny, personal choices are highlighted throughout, molded into athletic movement phrases, intimate partnering, and quirky theatrics. By altering the live and recorded environments, with shifting video backdrops and endless costume changes, A strange set of attachments draws out what exactly makes us well, us.

What potential for agency lies in this rupture?
