Slow Dancing: Trio A @ Danspace Project

SlowDancing/TrioA is a new video installation by artist, David Michalek, in collaboration with choreographer, Yvonne Rainer. It seeks to create an unusual motion picture record of Rainer’s iconic dance-work, Trio A (1966).

 

Yvonne Rainer and Raindears company member, Pat Catterson, cast 46 dancers to perform seven-second sections of the dance in sequence. The end result, to be screened inside of Danspace Project’s sanctuary.

Trio A and performance-lecture @ DO IT! | St John's University

For DO IT! at St. John’s, Levine will present a performance lecture that addresses the ongoing interchange between dance and the visual arts, including a performance of Yvonne Rainer's iconic 1965 Trio AAs dance is considered more through the lens of visual art, Levine’s work makes a counter claim, that visual art works may be understood instead as choreographies stilled in time. Discussion with Professor Susan Rosenberg to follow.

FORM—FROM is a love fest and takedown of abstract form. We'll see how much we can create, how many meanings we can pull from the simplest forms, attentive to what gets left out as well as what makes it in. We will work with movement and text, tight structure and improvisation. We will consider the different approaches to these issues across dance and the visual arts. And surrounding our work, the questions: Do certain forms belong and not belong to us? What work can experimental form do in urgent political times? Feel free to bring material of any sort you would like to work from. Dancers, non-dancers, and everyone between and beside, you are welcome.
