East Liberty Live: Luke Murphy - Drenched

KST welcomes back Point Park graduate Luke Murphy for a weeklong residency to develop Drenched, choreographed by Luke Murphy and performed by Luke Murphy (Ireland/New York) and Carlye Eckert (Portland, OR/ New York City). Drenched focuses on the gulf between expectations and experiences of romance in contemporary society by deconstructing the notions through which we filter relationships. This work-in-development examines the contrast between the ideals that we absorb from literature, media, art, and decades of social rhetoric with the starker realities of co-dependence, lust, desire, vulnerabily, and sensuality.

This is a showing of excerpts of an evening length work to be developed and premiered in 2012. With a multi-channel projection installation by video artist David Fishel, and a haunting soundscape with influences from Eddie Murphy to Elvis Presley, Drenched is a piece of viscerally physical dance theater with a sharp edge and a sharper sense of humour. Luke shares a work-in-progress excerpt at the end of residency at which time the audience is encouraged to share feedback and ask questions.

This project is supported by a 2012 Dance Project Award from The Arts Council of Ireland with additional residency support from DanceIreland, The Duo Multicultural Arts Center and The Dragons Egg

East Liberty Live: Relative Positions by Shana Simmons

Relative Positions is a multi-disciplinary performance event to be presented on Friday, July 6, 2012. Based loosely on Improv, presented at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2010, the event is structured as an immersive performance “tour” through the Union Project on North Negley Ave in Pittsburgh.

Over twenty artists—choreographers, musicians, writers/poets, installation artists, and visual artists—have been commissioned to create work at the site. Each artist/group presents a 5-20 minute piece that continues on a loop throughout the evening. Audiences have a choice in their experience: staying in one area to view one piece multiple times, or moving through the venue at their own pace.

INEFFABLE INTANGIBLE SENSATIONAL -- This workshop looks at some of the ways in which Miguel Gutierrez approaches a practice of movement and improvisation in his work. Working from the proposition that dance is a mode of perceptual inquiry, and working against the idea of dance as a non-verbal "language," students will be led through a series of movement explorations that prioritize sensation, non-rational action, and that trigger automatic, unprepared physical response. Some of the questions that guide this workshop are: What does movement "do" and how does it operate as a framework for complicated, nuanced, embodied meaning?
