INTERVIEW // Dance as an exploration of the Nature/Culture Continuum: An Interview with Sondra Fraleigh

Photo: Painting by Kat Brown

    Dance is an art that can only exist through continuous embodiment, it’s a living expression of self and symbol that exists in the perpetual present moment. Dance is made through bodies in motion; the body is a biological entity, but the body in dance is also a…

ESSAY // Favoring Fire: reflections on art and production - PART I

Part I: Passion and Ignorance

 

We talk, in this country at least, about following one’s passion, but I think we don’t mean it. Or rather we mean it only insofar as our passion comes with a 401(k) or can lead to a…

ESSAY // Measuring the Value of Our Work

I randomly stepped into an audition in July of 2016, expecting nothing, with a company that I had no prior relationship with, and two months later found myself getting emailed a contract for second cast of a brand new, ongoing, immersive theater show.…

ESSAY//mag.net//Human Kinetics Movement Arts and e+i Studio

It began with instant attraction.  Dancer and choreographer Yana Schnitzler had worn a bracelet with a magnetic clasp when dining at a restaurant.  While reaching towards the table, a fork became attached to her bracelet, dangling from her wrist.  That event provided inspiration for her to explore the effects of magnetism on the human body and,…

Jo-Ha-Kyu and the Discordant Aesthetic



As a young man in my early twenties I spent a year living in Japan. What brought me to live there was my determination to deepen my training in a Zen sword discipline called Iaido. At the time my Japanese language was quite poor, only surviving with rudimentary phrases. Luckily, the philosophy of Japanese martial art training was observation and practice. Hardly anything was explained, its theory, philosophy and execution…

ESSAY // Death of the Dance Sciences: David Deutsch v. Tere O'Connor

The urban landscape can be perceived as being defined by coded advertising. On a daily basis, we are constantly ingesting and regurgitating code. We speak to one another in mutually comprehensible phrases that are imbued with meaning. Mobile phones provide us with data which is…
