Greetings from Lublin, Poland! This month, the Movement Party has been in residence at the Centrum Kultury in Lublin, Poland (above) in preparation for the 17th annual International Dance Theatres Festival. On Friday we will perform the latest in a series of scores we have been developing using short video segments as material for a shared improvisation.
We will be dancing in ten separate geographic locations and connecting via a video feed. You can catch the action in real time on Twitter by following @MVMTparty (no Twitter account required).
Friday, November 8th
1pm EST // 7pm CST
I’ll Dance While You’re Dancing and We Will Have Danced Together, can best be summed up as a nonlinear game of (dance video) telephone. Using handheld technology participating performers respond to each other’s movements across time and space. Each performer is instructed to create an instant composition in response to the particularities of their own location and subjective experience, filming resonant elements to share with other performers. As video accumulates, performers are invited to respond to the contributions of others, tracking the flow of inspiration and the manner in which ideas get taken up, transported, developed, and recycled.
Performers: Zena Bibler, Tara Bonanno, Katharine Birdsall, Josefina Camus, Kristin Clotfelter, Diana Crum, Erik DeLuca, Katie Schetlick, Brandin Steffensen, Sage Tanguay, Anne Zuerner, and Rishauna Zumberg.
