Summer Artists in Residence Performance

Event has passed (Fri Sep 9, 2005 - Sun Sep 11, 2005)


CounterPULSE presents the premier of two new works by our Summer
Artists in Residence-- Paige Sorvillo and Sean Feit. Audiences are
invited to witness the creative process of these two innovative
choreographers, each of whom will be showing work completed during a
two-month residency at CounterPULSE. The opening night performance
will be followed by an audience feedback session with the artists.

these are my arms holding you, tearing you apart
by Paige Sorvillo with George Cremaschi
Choreographer Paige Sorvillo and bassist George Cremaschi create a
politically relevant, butoh-inspired meditation on the atrocities of
war. Through movement, sound and image, Sorvillo and Cremaschi mine
the territory of intimacy and disconnection, creating a gripping
examination of human violence. Both haunting and deeply visceral,
this piece offers a dream-like exploration of America's current
political moment.

when the heart's an empty room
by Sean Feit
Choreographer and musician Sean Feit presents a multimedia solo
performance piece exploring solitude and human connection. Working
with video images of dance community friends who have moved away,
Feit examines how the heart and body respond to distance. Through
music, dance and video, this richly textured piece evokes an inner
landscape saturated with memory and desire.
