New Nothing: Josephine Foster & Victor Herrero
Friday, April 2, 8 PM
Concert Hall

In the final New Nothing of the season, two unusual composer/performers offer different, lush takes on the construction the song. Josephine Foster ("a Grace Slick for the 21st century" - Arthur magazine) transforms the spartan poems of Emily Dickinson with her otherworldly soprano. And Victor Herrero performs his wordless songs for the Spanish guitar.

August 16 - 22, 2010 

We are pleased to announce our first summer lab for interactive media in performance to be held August 16-22, 2010. Directed by Johannes Birringer and Mark Coniglio, the workshop offers intensive training and possibilities for experimentation with mixed reality and real time architectures, programmable environments, interactive design and the integration of time-based media into live performance and installation.

The workshop addresses emerging and professional art practitioners, scientists, researchers, and students from different backgrounds in performance and new media committed to sharing their interest in developing a deeper understanding of composing work focused on real time, interactive or time-based experiences and multidisciplinary collaborative processes (video, sound processing, projection design, lighting, choreography, and directing).

Résumé and informal letter of application are due by June 30, 2010. More information on this workshop and how to submit your application will be available shortly.


Unfiction: Man on Wire 
Thursday, April 8, 7:30 PM

In the Academy Award-winning documentary, Man on Wire, director James Marsh weaves together period footage, interviews, and re-enactment to create an account of Petit's daring and defiant tightrope walk between the Twin Towers in 1974 and the months of secret preparation that led up to it. The film examines the relationship between humans and gravity, dreaming and doing. Presented in conjunction with Dancing on the Ceiling: Art & Zero Gravity.
