The first posting I placed here was about a dance & technology festival in Greece. Well, it's over now so I thought I'd better update the news. Here's a new event for you to rush and see. (Personally, I wish I was still living in New York City where I could see what's being done in the way of dance & technology there. But alas, I'm not anymore;(<P> TROIKA RANCH - NYC FALL SEASON <P> Dawn Stoppiello and Mark Coniglio <BR> Artistic Directors <P> September 6-9, 13-16, 2001 <P>Benefit Performance & Dance Party: September 8th <P> All Performances at 8PM <P> WAX (205 N. 7th St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) <P>We invite you to join us for our two week long fall season here in <BR>New York. We have four new works to present: <P>Reine Rien (Premiere) places the audience in an ephemeral otherworld where four independent souls journey alone while unexpectedly creating a lush world of sound and image. The four performers directly create the sound score and manipulate video with their movement via sensors on their bodies. <P>Suite Devo (Work in Progress) - Troika Ranch gives their fierce/whimsical homage to the 80's New Wave techo-group Devo, including five songs such as "Jocko Homo", "Jerking Back and Forth", and "Through Being Cool". The dancers groove in front of a rapid <BR>fire, ever-changing background of imagery set to Artistic Director Mark Coniglio's arrangements of the Devo songs. The songs feature Victoria Macintosh, Mark's Powerbook G4 Computer on lead vocals. <P>Piso Mojado - In Artistic Director Dawn Stoppiello's new solo, we see a woman searching for stability in a world where her support (the floor, the earth, the present) feels fleeting, slippery, and dangerous. <P>Flowing Of Honey: two dancers shed technology and turn to text and movement to explore mortality when faced with a chronic illness. <P>------- <P>We'll be joined by our wonderful company of dancers, Danielle Goldman, Lisa Herlinger Thompson, Michou Szabo, Sandra Tillett, as <BR>well as special guest artists Anthony Gongora and Lisa Townsend. <P>The pertinent info regarding ticket prices and location can be found below. We hope that you will join us for this exciting new palette of works. <P>Ciao, <BR>Dawn Stoppielo & Mark Coniglio <BR>Artistic Directors <BR>Troika Ranch <P>------- <P>LOCATION: <P> Williamsburg Art Nexus (WAX) <BR> 205 N. 7th Street, between Driggs and Roebling <BR> Williamsburg, Brooklyn <BR> L train to Bedford, walk one block east on 7th Street. <BR> (just 6 minutes from Union Square) <P>TICKETS: <P>Tickets are $12 for the first week (Sep 6, 7, and 9) except for the night of the Benefit Performance / Dance Party, which is $30. <P>Tickets for the second week (Sep. 13-16) are $15. <P>RESERVATIONS: <BR>Please call 718.599.7997 <P>[This message has been edited by Jennifer (edited August 28, 2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by Jennifer (edited August 28, 2001).]

For myself, I can never get enough of 'neologisms of corporeality'. Nevertheless, the conference will do well to top the treatment of this theme in 'Porky's III'.

Lauren Gallagher interviews Paul Kaiser who will speak at the San Francisco Exploratorium on technology in dance:

Quote:
Preserving choreography

Lauren Gallagher, SF Examiner

Well versed in the multimedia worlds of visual art, computer animation and fimmaking, New York artist Paul Kaiser will speak this Sunday at the Exploratorium about his various artistic crossovers, including his involvement in the realm of modern dance.

And here are some other dicussion threads on a similar theme:

<a href=../../../ubb/Forum5/HTML/000127.html target=_blank>Merce Cunningham's Summerspace, Interscape & BIPED and Video Technology</a>
Quote:
Issues are also raised by this piece concerning technique and sytle as the signature of the choreographer. Style is how we recognise the work of a choreographer, but is BIPED using Cunningham's technique and style or do we recognise it as his because we know he is innovative in this area of experimentation? Will the choreographic signature become smugged in cyber dance? Will all virtual dance look the same? If this is the case then virtual dance becomes an allographic art and this obviously poses great problems for identity, authenticity and ontology.

Looking back:<P><B>Turning Bits of Video Into Works of Art</B><BR>By Valerie Gladstone<P>After almost 30 years of editing films for the "Dance in America" series, Girish Bhargava is still pleased by his work. "Look at Ben Vereen's face," he said recently, as he watched Mr. Vereen dance to the poignant song "Mr. Bojangles" in the Broadway musical "Fosse," which will be broadcast on PBS stations on Wednesday, the latest installment in the series.<P>Mr. Bhargava is deservedly proud of his accomplishment. Before WNET started "Dance in America" in 1976, efforts to put dance on television had largely failed. To skeptics, the medium was wrong for dance: George Balanchine said it made dancers look like ants. But Merrill Brockway and Emile Ardolino, the original directors of the series, argued that better direction and editing would solve the problems.<P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/01/20/arts/dance/20GLAD.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P>

The Merce Cunningham Dance Company are at The Barbican Theatre in London this week and are in residence at The Place next week as part of the Dance Umbrella 2002 festival.

The Company are premiering "Fluid Canvas", another Cunningham work using digital technology.

We already have a wealth of material assembled in our Dance Umbrella 2002 forum and we'd be delighted if you wanted to add your own comments about Merce, his use of , his wonderful dancers, his collaborators including the digital technology team.

Please join us for Merce Cunningham in London and continue the discussion about his work there.
