Dance and Process


New Work

Dance and Process: Daniel Linehan, Melanie Maar, and Jillian Peña :: The Kitchen :: Wednesday, December 20, 8pm; Thursday, December 21, 8pm :: Tickets $10 :: Curated by Miguel Gutierrez ::

The culmination of a seven-week group process of sharing work and receiving structured feedback, this evening features new work by choreographers Daniel Linehan, Melanie Maar, and Jillian Peña. In Human Content Pile, Daniel Linehan probes his own choreographic process from an objective and amoral perspective in order to create a structure based on the incessant daily accumulation of material. Linehan collaborates with dancers Anna Carapetyan, Natalie Green, Michael Helland, and Miriam Wolf, along with Minneapolis-based writer/composer Erik Belgum, who provides a text-based score. Choreographed by Melanie Maar, DOPA - Duo in Process translates the symptoms of a body with neurological dysfunction into the arena of choreography and performance. Two women relate in an environment where the interplay of conscious and subconscious triggers stimulate their bodies to move. The performers are Mariangela Lopez and Maar, and a sound collaboration with Dylan Stanfield. In search of transcendence, Jillian Peña invites the audience to The Promised Land--an imaginary landscape of dreams and opportunities. The Promised Land is an interactive video experience.
