I am starting to use velocity as a way of altering material. Nothing seems to come out at the speed it is supposed to finally be in. After “Cover Boy” a work I made last year that included an extended jumping sequence I have become very excited by jumping. The fact that the jumps are somewhat technical is not really the focus it is just that people are jumping!!!!!
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.
