I said: what about my eyes?
God said:keep them on the road.
I said: what about my passion?
God said: Keep it burning.
I said: what about my heart?
God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?
I said: pain and sorrow?
He said:…stay with it.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
11/2 Mon. (2-3:45pm): WK 11 COMP—Pop Up Performance @ Gibney Studio B
We will focus on quickly generating movement and making choices for Pop Up Performances in some of Gibney’s lesser-used spaces. We will also consider the role of the soundscape, or other subtle framing choices, in framing these impromptu performances. We will re-visit some past phrasebook, as well as engaging in some hands-on work creating soundscapes, and will imagine how these might inform or enhance our site-specific creations. Then, we will put these concepts into practice, again creating Pop Up Performances in Gibney.
Snack: Briana & Al
Part 1) 9:45-11:00am-Peer review of paper outlines, plus Sally & Al feedback; post-show discussion of recent performances
Part 2) 11:05-12:45pm-Social dance embodies markers of race, gender and cultural identity that change who and where it is done. Begun in the South Bronx, Hip Hop is a multi-faceted culture combining music, poetry (rap), fashion, graphic art (graffiti) that became and remains a worldwide-youth cultural phenomenon, and multi-billion dollar fashion industry. The multi-ethnic diversity the Bronx assured hip hop’s excellence, variety, durability and was shaped by social and physical forces of the neighborhood. (Seminar group: Andre, Briana, Amanda)
