Neil Greenberg (dance) and James Lo (music) will perform a solo study for a new work, continuing Neil’s quixotic search for an experience of the performance moment in and of itself.
John Jasperse will share some material from current work in the studio. “Over the years, I have repeatedly questioned why, given all the madness of the world that we inhabit, I find myself again and again, in an empty room, moving my cells around, trying to place something so fleeting as a dance into the void of the room and the world. Is it the force of habit, hubris, solipsism, or trust that drives this quest? Perhaps the challenges of the current moment have intensified the imperative to understand some answer to these and other questions that have been lingering in the air of late, lurking in the recesses of my mind and the studio.”
In F n’ F Moe Satt explores formal relationships between the face and fingers, achieving 108 combinations: hands that cover the face like a mask; gestures that represent blossoms (a memory from his childhood); a gun sign that plays with differences in meaning when the fingers are pointed to his head and outwards. In Asian cosmology, the sacred number 108 signifies, among many things: 108 sensorial feelings, 108 earthly temptations, 108 questions posed to Buddha, 108 Ayurvedic pressure points, 108 t’ai chi martial moves, and 108 bell chimes to usher the new year.
