PERFORMANCE PROJECT WITH SHANNON GILLEN

+ JASON CIANCIULLI + KILEY DOLAWAY

COUNTDOWN

this piece is about time. how we use it, waste it, sell it, beg for it, and ultimately are eaten whole by it. immersed in a rigorous process of collaborative movement and partnering creation, we will peel back who and what we are made of when facing the clock. expect combustive physical and psychological prompts. expect to enter a maelstrom of situations and feelings. expect characters to escalate into a mad wilderness of movement. expect to say good-bye. expect to bring something back to life. each of us will take one last look with the time we have left. we will make it count. we will try to make it last forever. even though we know it won't. shannon's experiences working with johannes wieland and currently with the artists of vim vigor, have influenced her approach to raw physical movement, the collaborative creative process, and life. unabashedly personal, each work enters a terrain of human failure, triumph, and will.

 

4-DAY WORKSHOP WITH SHANNON GILLEN

+ JASON CIANCIULLI + KILEY DOLAWAY

ALTER EGO

alter ego is a four day psychological marathon where performers will lose their grip on themselves and become someone else. wearing different clothes - dealing with and subverting reality in new ways. this workshop will offer no comfortable exit to the research process, character exploration will travel from intense movement research in the studio into the practice of daily life. participants will be challenged to carry physical and psychological propositions out into the world at large in a devised psychoactive scavenger hunt of impersonations, interviews, surreal movement in strange spaces, happenstance interactions, chase scenes, speeches shared with strangers, hallucinatory fits of lying and bare bone confessions. it will get messy. it will be hard to contain. and all of this madness will come together in a restless crescendo of combustible material in the studio. by the end you will have a second self - a new person to haunt your flesh and your dancing in the future. immersive character study / partnering / movement research / monologues and scene work will be explored. participants will be required to bring a costume to work with for the duration.
