This is material we made in the first week of the process for Dance 2 at NYLA for Nov 2012. I always start by making complicated knots of movement as a way to jolt my thinking.
Choreographer Tere O’Connor invited writer and performance scholar Jenn Joy to follow the production of four new works to premier in 2012-2013. The resulting blog, BLEED, trespasses between dance and dialogue, process and idea and includes interviews between Tere and Jenn, “interrogations” or discussions at open rehearsals, video and text documentation. In addition Tere provides ongoing reports from the studio in the PROCESS NOTES section. We invite you to read, to watch, to ask questions of our attempt to more transparently reveal the systems, values and thinking surrounding the making of these dances.
