4. BEYOND STRUCTURE EXHIBIT FINALE /// MAY 4

An Experiment for Three Dancers at GAMUT GALLERY

SATURDAY 7:00-10:00 PM (first performance: 8:00 PM)

1006 Marquette Avenue South, Downtown Minneapolis

Free/ Cash donations are requested for refreshments and appreciated for dancers/ gallery.

Three solo performances, choreographed by their dancers -- each with a connection to breakdancing. In the Gamut Gallery tradition of collaboration, each dancer will respond to the visual art of Beyond Structure. In the spirit of the exhibit, artists are encouraged to experiment artistically, with day-to-day constraints removed.

///Arturo Miles

Modern/ African/ Hip-Hop/ Break

Miles is a well known local dancer and choreographer.  He teaches dance for Zenon and the hip-hop organization 'Collective' and directs programs for Patrick's Cabaret.

///Skylar Aubrey

Modern/ East African/ Tae Kwon Do/ Break

Aubrey brings trained dance and artistry to the stages of huge concert and night club events.  She was trained in a breadth of disciplines at the Saint Paul Conservatory and has earned a black belt.

///Kailen Nelson

Qigong/ Yoga/ Hip-Hop/ Break

Nelson is a yoga instructor and has spent years studying Qigong and Shiatsu. He is a prominent breakdancer in Minneapolis and has performed, incorporating his beat-boxing and Djing, in night clubs, underground venues and restaurants.

Pattern, perspective and spontaneity

unite four painters, in all-new works for Gamut Gallery.

As they step away from constraints of art-for-hire

they also step away from the representational.

In this experiment with abstraction,

one draws inspiration from precision architecture,

another from rusting rail road cars.

Their point of intersection is an unfamiliar sight

to the world we know.

Now... dancers join the experiment!

community!

The goal of Rochester Ensemble of Dance is to give young dancers the opportunity to create original dance works of a high artistic level while allowing local choreographers the opportunity to develop themselves as artists.  Each professional choreographer has been exploring a concept in creating their dance piece.  RED features 26 dancers from the Rochester area.

Instructors from Allegro School of Dance and Music began RED in the fall of 2012 with the purpose of creating an opportunity for young dancers to create original dance works of a high artistic level while allowing local choreographers the opportunity to develop themselves as artists.  Open auditions were held in September to any dancers in Rochester and the surrounding communities.  Rehearsals began during varying months in the 2012-2013 season.

Nic is an instinctive seeker of beauty who takes inspiration from pop culture and visual art to voice his activism through dance. For eight years James Sewell Ballet has acted as a creative incubator for Lincoln. In 2011 he received a Mcknight fellowship for dance and was named Best Dancer by City Pages, as well as one of the “Artists Who We Love” by MN Monthly Magazine.

This project is important to him not only because it is an artistic challenge but also because it will connect dance with public awareness of GLBT youth issues. Through his inspiration he has teamed with Outfront MN because they provide leadership in moving the state toward the elimination of homophobia and toward full equality for GLBT people, as well as bringing allies into the movement.

SOUL CAGES

Soul Cages captures the cycles of life and death as a journey, rather than an end in itself. At its core, Soul Cages brings to life a deeply thought-provoking philosophy by examining it through the eyes of mythological characters and ordinary people through the disarming simplicity of a child. Soul Cages redefines not just one’s perception of the cycles of life and death, but also redefines the boundaries that tradition has placed on Bharathanatyam.

YUDH

This is the story of a battle of equals. The strategists at this war are equals in their abilities. Their armies equally matched, and outcomes certain only in uncertainty. In such a universe, when perspectives are lost, a thousand doubts enhance human frailty. YUDH tries to explain that perspective we have lost sight of. There are some wars we fight whether or not we believe in them. This is what we were created for.

12. ANNOUNCING THE 2013-14 NORTHROP DANCE SEASON!

The 2013-14 Northrop MOVES Season reflects our tradition of presenting world-class artists, as well as a dedication to work that is fresh and new, and brimming with today’s most innovative ideas.

The season launches with beloved contemporary company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, performing Swedish choreographer Mats Ek’s Casi-Casa. The first Women of Substance event kicks off with the physically explosive piece Blush from Andrea Miller’s Gallim Dance. After wowing Minnesotan audiences with Snow White, Ballet Preljocaj returns with the U.S. premiere of And then, one thousand years of peace. The MN debut of Shanghai Ballet brings to life the storybook ballet The Butterfly Lovers, complete with the company’s trademark precise classical movement. The second Women of Substance performance from Kate Weare Company showcases excerpts from new work, as well as the visually austere and flirtatious Garden. Wayne McGregor | Random Dance returns with FAR, exploring the Age of Enlightenment’s ideas of the mind-body relationship through cognitive science and movement. The MN debut of Royal New Zealand Ballet includes a sampling of this classically trained ballet company’s repertoire. Copresented with Walker Art Center, the season closes with Trisha Brown Dance Company, whose uncontested legacy as a pioneer of postmodern dance is celebrated with this farewell tour of works made for the stage, seen one last time in their original context.

This is the last Northrop MOVES season, as Northrop takes the final steps in the journey back home for the Grand Reopening of Northrop in April 2014.

17. SUBBODY RESONANCE BUTOH WORKSHOP WITH GADU

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a pre-requisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method.  The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!

Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience.  Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

When:  Tuesday 6:15-9:15 pm   May 7, 14, 21, 28  June 4, 11, 18, 25  March 5

Where:  Grain Belt Studios, 79 13th Ave. NE Suite 201, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Tuition:  $200 ($180 when you register by April 23rd)

To register, please write a check payable to “Kats D Fukasawa” and mail to 5015 14th Avenue South, Minneapolis Minnesota 55417.  Full payment required to register.

For more information about workshop, please contact Kats D Fukasawa at DoushinGadu@Gmail.com.

In 2011 he received a Mcknight fellowship for dance and was named Best Dancer by City Pages, as well as one of the “Artists Who We Love” by MN Monthly Magazine.

This project is important to him not only because it is an artistic challenge but also because it will connect dance with public awareness of GLBT youth issues. Through his inspiration he has teamed with Outfront MN because they provide leadership in moving the state toward the elimination of homophobia and toward full equality for GLBT people, as well as bringing allies into the movement.

SOUL CAGES

Soul Cages captures the cycles of life and death as a journey, rather than an end in itself. At its core, Soul Cages brings to life a deeply thought-provoking philosophy by examining it through the eyes of mythological characters and ordinary people through the disarming simplicity of a child. Soul Cages redefines not just one’s perception of the cycles of life and death, but also redefines the boundaries that tradition has placed on Bharathanatyam.

YUDH

This is the story of a battle of equals. The strategists at this war are equals in their abilities. Their armies equally matched, and outcomes certain only in uncertainty. In such a universe, when perspectives are lost, a thousand doubts enhance human frailty. YUDH tries to explain that perspective we have lost sight of. There are some wars we fight whether or not we believe in them. This is what we were created for.

21. SUBBODY RESONANCE BUTOH WORKSHOP WITH GADU

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a prerequisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method.  The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!

Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience.  Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

When:  Tuesday 6:15-9:15 pm   May 7, 14, 21, 28  June 4, 11, 18, 25  March 5

Where:  Grain Belt Studios, 79 13th Ave. NE Suite 201, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Tuition:  $200 ($180 when you register by April 23rd)

To register, please write a check payable to “Kats D Fukasawa” and mail to 5015 14th Avenue South, Minneapolis Minnesota 55417.  Full payment required to register.

29. CONTEMPORARY MASTER CLASS WITH STEFANIE BATTEN BLAND

Physical Perspectives - May 16, 21, 30 – 9:30-11am

Physical Perspectives is a contemporary dance class created in Company Stefanie Batten Bland's own technique style of perpetual movement making. Dancers are invited to examine technical proficiency through risk taking and empower their instinct with focus on initiation to completion. The class offers a physical investigation of the intuitive physical self, the practice of hearing and doing in the now, physical weight design, the connection to

the breath body, rhythmical dynamics, and examining neutral through counter balance resolutions. The subtle changes that the body encounters from this evolving class canvas

will offer dancers new perspectives in their different states of being and moving.

Stefanie Batten Bland (Choreographer) has danced for Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Pal Frenak, Georges Momboye, Pina Bausch Tanz Theater Wuppertal, Lar Lubovitch, Julie Taymor and Angelin Preljocaj. Stefanie’s choreographic vision has been recognized as a 2010-12 Baryshnikov Arts Center Artist in Residence, Jerome Robbins NEW Fellow and 2011/12 Cambridge Who’s Who! of Professionals and Entrepreneurs. She is currently a guest choreographer for Alvin Ailey ll and Frontier Danceland of Singapore.

31. CIRCLES, CURVES & SPIRALS WORKSHOP

Circles, Curves & Spirals: remembrance-awakening, exploring the winding paths of deep imagination

A performance workshop directed by Maureen Koelsch

With composer & musician David Means

Thursday 13 June 2013

10a-2p

Cowles Center Studio 7A

528 Hennepin Avenue

Minneapolis, MN 55403

Fee $65

What arises when you tell your story? Sometimes things that appeared to be, may not, now, beginnings circle back, journeys curve & swerve. Points of view, multiple tellings, new voices reveal thoughtful more nuanced narrative. Memoir, autobiography, personal myth danced acted sung or spoken allow for new dimensions in the stories we tell about ourselves and our histories. Meaning comes from delving deep in imaginative spirals.

Through movement, words and music we will explore origin-essence, structure-shape, place-gesture. Using questions and their playful, profane and profound answers we will create performance. An opportunity to show and share our work informally will follow the workshop from 2-4p.

Circles, Curves & Spirals is one of the workshops offered the week prior to the Choreogram Centenary Celebration honoring the work and life of Margret Dietz. Circles, curves and spirals were some of the foundation elements in the work at Choreogram. They figured importantly in technique, choreography and guiding concepts for life. Knowledge of this work is not necessary for participation in the workshop but may deepen the experience for those who attend the celebration and introduce a lasting template to those new to the work.

“Spanda” - a vibration - is symbolic of the enduring and perpetual energy that is the life force of the universe. It incorporates the philosophical concept of “Prithvi” - Mother Earth - as the center and source of energy in the universe, and equates it with the “nabham” - the womb - as the origin of energy in the human body. It is a journey inwards seeking the essential “center”, the origin of movement and its source of strength.

6. EMILY JOHNSON/CATALYST’S NIICUGNI - APRIL 21

Northrop and The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University Present

Women of Substance

Emily Johnson/Catalyst

Sun, Apr 21, 7:00 pm

The O'Shaughnessy

Niicugni (2012)

Created and performed by Emily Johnson with Aretha Aoki, James Everest, Bethany Lacktorin, and Heidi Eckwall

Originally from Alaska and currently based in Minneapolis, director/choreographer/curator Emily Johnson’s Niicugni is second in a trilogy of work. Niicugni ― the word ― is a directive to pay attention, to listen. Niicugni the dance quietly compels such attentiveness through its layering of multiple dances, live music, stories, and histories. Housed within a light/sound installation of hand-made, functional fish-skin lanterns, Niicugni asks ― can we pay attention to the ways we do and do not listen to our bodies, histories, impulses and environments? Equating the molecules of land with the cells that comprise our bodies, Niicugni is also about how land, or place, like our bodies is a repository of past, present, and future.

*Please note: The artist has requested that there be no late seating for this performance. We will not be able to seat you if you arrive after 7:00 p.m.

LOBBY EXHIBIT

Come early to experience the lobby exhibit with photos, video, and more.

POST-PERFORMANCE CONVERSATION

Connect with Emily Johnson for a Q & A immediately following the performance from the stage.

For tickets please visit www.niclincoln.com/yes or call 612-206-3600 Tickets will also be available at the door. All tickets are $20.

Nic is an instinctive seeker of beauty who takes inspiration from pop culture and visual art to voice his activism through dance. For eight years James Sewell Ballet has acted as a creative incubator for Lincoln. In 2011 he received a McKnight fellowship for dance and was named Best Dancer by City Pages, as well as one of the “Artists Who We Love” by MN Monthly Magazine.

This project is important to him not only because it is an artistic challenge but also because it will connect dance with public awareness of GLBT youth issues. Through his inspiration he has teamed with Outfront MN because they provide leadership in moving the state toward the elimination of homophobia and toward full equality for GLBT people, as well as bringing allies into the movement.

WORKSHOPS, MASTER CLASSES and INTENSIVES

19. SUBBODY RESONANCE BUTOH WORKSHOP WITH GADU

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a pre-requisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method.  The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!

Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience.  Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

When:  Tuesday 6:15-9:15 pm   May 7, 14, 21, 28  June 4, 11, 18, 25  March 5

Where:  Grain Belt Studios, 79 13th Ave. NE Suite 201, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Tuition:  $200 ($180 when you register by April 23rd)

Physical Perspectives - May 16, 21, 30 – 9:30-11am

Physical Perspectives is a contemporary dance class created in Company Stefanie Batten Bland's own technique style of perpetual movement making.

The class offers a physical investigation of the intuitive physical self, the practice of hearing and doing in the now, physical weight design, the connection to the breath body, rhythmical dynamics, and examining neutral through counter balance resolutions. The subtle changes that the body encounters from this evolving class canvas will offer dancers new perspectives in their different states of being and moving.

Stefanie Batten Bland (Choreographer) has danced for Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Pal Frenak, Georges Momboye, Pina Bausch Tanz Theater Wuppertal, Lar Lubovitch, Julie Taymor and Angelin Preljocaj. Stefanie’s choreographic vision has been recognized as a 2010-12 Baryshnikov Arts Center Artist in Residence, Jerome Robbins NEW Fellow and 2011/12 Cambridge Who’s Who! of Professionals and Entrepreneurs.

43. MARGRET DIETZ - A DANCER’S LEGACY

The book Margret Dietz - A Dancer's Legacy is still available at $30.00 for dancers interested in German Expressionist modern dance. Margret Dietz taught in Minnesota in the early 1970s, at the U-MN, The Hauser School and founded Choreogram Dance Company and School. This memoir chronicles Ms. Dietz's life in Europe as a student and friend of Mary Wigman during WWII. Written by Freeman, Nickell and Soderstrom in 2010, it follows her story from Germany to America in 1953 and through her career as educator, choreographer, and exemplar of the Mary Wigman School in America. She passed away in 1972 and was lovingly buried at The College of Saint Benedict where her Centenary will be celebrated on June 14th and 15t, 2013. Archives will be dedicated, a Master Class taught by Thern Anderson with an informal performance by Dietzchkins and Friends. Exhibits will include Charlotte Rudolph photography from the 1930s - which is also featured in the memoir from Margret's portfolio. This Day of Remembrance and Tribute to Margret Dietz has grown from the research and scholarship in the book, and dance writers will have a sense of continuity from dance as history, telling our own stories and on into a permanent archival setting. FFI: Lindalee Soderstrom 507-523-2327/fastxfarnwide@yahoo.com. Books can be hand-delivered to you or purchased at the Centennial Gathering.
