NEW WORKS AWARD PROGRAM:
New Works Choreographic Advisors
All awardees and their dancers will meet with the Mentor/Choreographers together 3 times in the process to show their ongoing work and to discuss/provide feedback. Scheduled group meetings with individual groups and mentors will take place several times over the rehearsal process to provide a forum for group discussion.For the final concert, choreographers will share all production responsibilities including but not limited to: marketing, public relations, program design, press release, costume design, and care of the performance space. Audience interaction is the final component of the New Works Program: following the final performance, a panel discussion open to the public will follow. The Mentor/Choreographer will moderate a Q & A discussion encouraging audience questions and comments directed to the choreographers.
Nov. 16 & 17, 8pm; Nov. 17, 4pm
Annie Kloppenberg is a fierce yet coy force of energy, contained or unleashed. – Thinking Dance
Kloppenberg, “a choreographer of nuances” according to The Boston Globe, will be showcasing repertory highlights from her company’s ten years on November 16 and 17 in Cambridge, MA.
The darkly compelling Expert Witness (2011) features an original sound score by Albert Mathias, who has won a BESSIE award for his work with Bebe Miller. In The Waters at Whose Edge We Stand (2005), three women fall, cradle, and support one another with care, urgency, and sometimes, desperation. In both Indelible Marks (2009), which includes visuals by mixed media artists Nicole Gibbs and Lily Skove and This Terrain: traveled, traced, trampled underfoot (2008) with an original score by Michael Wall, ideas about body, desire, and landscape unfold in movement explorations inspired by the landscape architectural idea of “Desire Lines.” Simple and precise episodes in This Dance Needs a New Title—choose your own… (2007) develop in an ever-unpredictable way. It’s funny, but uncomfortably so. The performers judge an empty chair, describe a prom dress with blue plastic plates, and admonish the audience for potentially having missed a beautiful part of the dance.Between II, which premieres a week earlier in the “Fashionless Dance Concert” at the Dance Complex, presents formal investigations of the space between two bodies that begins with almost clinical attention and becomes intensely personal. Kloppenberg and Kendra Portier of David Dorfman Dance will premiere a brand new duet.
Finally, joining Kloppenberg’s company is a group of young dancers from Concord Academy Summer Stages Dance where Kloppenberg was a choreographic fellow this past summer. Excerpts A Simple Form of Matter, which premiered its workshop version at the ICA and is the company’s next research project, will give audiences a taste of what’s to come for this vibrant company.

Green Street Studios announces the Winter 2013 cycle of its New Works Program (formerly known as the Emerging Artists Award Program).

The Emerging Artist Award provides the opportunity for New England-based choreographers to create work at Green Street Studios from December 2012 to March 2013. Green Street Studios will provide choreographers with Mentor/Choreographers, and will provide 40 hours of free rehearsal space per awardee for the creation of new work. The new works by the awardees will premiere in a fully produced, shared concert at Green Street Studios on March 22nd & 23rd 2013 at 8pm (dress rehearsal March 21st at 8pm).
