These performances feature the “meticulous artistry” (The Village Voice) of Janis Brenner and her full company.
Brenner premieres Where-How-Why Trilogy, a group of three solos set to music by David Lang, Joni Mitchell and the electronic music band Tosca. And she revives her 2011 work, The Mind-Stuff Variations, a complex dance with a live commissioned score by Jerome Begin, inspired by moving spontaneously and simultaneously using words to describe that movement. As she and the company created the dance, Brenner came across work by psychologist William James, written 100 years ago, about Mind-Stuff Theory and what she read fit perfectly with what she was trying to do in the studio—to be in the moment while also accessing thought, memory and sensation. The resulting dance is sometimes witty and sometimes emotionally fraught. Friday’s performance will also include an excerpt from Kyla Barkin’s Reflexive, Saturday night’s will include Wait by Lilja Ruriksdottir and Sunday’s will include Helena Franzén’s Trigger Point.
Master Classes are available with Janis Brenner and Helena Franzén.
