  This Is Not a Pink Pony

Performing this week in the re-mounting of This Is Not A Pink Pony, the first show I worked on with Yvonne Meier back in 2005/2006. It was at The Kitchen, and now it's at Abrons Art Center. Featuring Osmany Tellez and Marion Ramirez. We've also made part 2, which features Aki Sasamoto, Jeremy Pheiffer, and me.

This is not a pink pony 1 is a remount of the piece which premiered in 2008 at the Kitchen, cast with the same dancers: Osmany TellezMarion Ramirez, and Arturo VidichIt is a Dr. Zhivago-like love triangle in wintry wartime. Dancers attempt to jump rope while threatened by gunfire. Midway through all dancers switch off and so do the sexual tensions. In this urgent constellation, the movement is tightly scored and full of jealousy and brutal revenge.

This is not a pink pony 2 is a new creation with dancers Aki Sasamoto, Jeremy Pheiffer, and Arturo Vidich. This piece deals with bullying as a way to turn out rough and complex relationships. As a departure from former scored improvisation this piece is a set choreography. Physical comedy is used as a release from the bitter tension running through this work. Dancers find themselves in unexpected situations that ask for unconventional solutions.

Over the years, Yvonne Meier has developed a high-risk movement vocabulary that takes the audience through transformation by exhaustion. Her group pieces are wild, anarchic, and provocative post-modern spectacles. She often creates environments in which the dancers are exposed to high-speed, complex, and eccentric movement scores, combining elements of danger and total physical commitment.

"Artists Lisa Bielawa (2006 Performing Arts) and Arturo Vidich (2013 Performing Arts) have more in common than meets the eye. Though they work in different media­—Bielawa is a musician and composer, Vidich is a choreographer—both Creative Capital grantees are taking on community-building and place-making in an unusual space: the repurposed military airfield..."

New Website

This is my new website.

And this is my new blog! I will use it to share things like events and accolades, and rad things I'm working on in the studio, and elsewhere. The video to the right is one such example, from last January while I was working on The Daedalus Effect and other dilemmas.
