Bootstraps: An American Fable

Bootstraps: An American Fable

A production by The Art Monastery Project

Acrobatic, slapstick and sung, two Americans battle their way across a cardboard landscape in search of The Dream. Did we mention they are white, middle class, and kinda unaware? Featuring raw, powerhouse performances from Kaitlin June and Raphael Sacks in the roles they were born to play, and directed by Shawn Shafner, award-winning taboo-breaker. Bootstraps challenges audiences to question how we otherize our neighbors, how success is constructed and the role white people can play in perpetuating and dismantling systems of oppression. Are you ready to play outside the box?

"Bootstraps: An American Fable" is made possible through Culture Mill's Open Space Policy. For more info, visit www.culturemill.org/openspace

 Open Summer Retreat in Saxapahaw

“Movement Improvisation / Practice” & Culture Mill Lab Opening Party"

Join us for an Open Retreat organized by Culture Mill and Durham Independent Dance Artists at the Culture Mill Lab in beautiful Saxapahaw, North Carolina. “Open Retreats” are day-long spaces for the exchange of skills and practices relevant to the local performing arts community. Whether you are professional or an amateur practitioner, “Open Retreats” are open to members of our local and greater communities who wish to take part in a day of body-based experience to feed their own interests and practices.

July 29th will be organized around the theme of Movement Improvisation / Practice and will feature three workshops from local artists with deep practices that relate to our theme. Stay for the free outdoor farmers' market and music series, Saturdays in Saxapahaw, at 6pm and the Culture Mill Lab Opening Party at 8pm!

Workshops and Day Schedule are as follows:

  • 10am to 11:30am - “Grooves” with Christopher Grohs: A sweet exploration of our anatomy through simple joint patterns to figure out how our bodies can move with ease and efficiency. In this class, we'll hone in on our side body and lateral support structures and add in some twisting and turning. After our gentle exploration, we'll find a phrase that takes us across the floor.
  • 1pm to 2:30pm - “Viewpoints” with Dana Marks - Explore the messages and meaning we put forth to the world/audiences by working with the physical body and the Viewpoints of time and space. Through group exercises and structured improvisations, participants will begin to follow initial impulses and learn to listen and express themselves in a deeper, more accessible way.
  • 3pm to 4:30pm-  “Moving Inside/Out” with ShaLeigh Comerford - Shaga/People: Inspired by the Gaga movement philosophy of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin, we approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul.
  • 4:30pm to 6pm - Open Space Salon - The Culture Mill Lab will be available during this time for both discussions and movement that relates to, reflects upon or integrates the day’s experiences.
  • 6pm to 8pm - “Saturdays in Saxapahaw” Free Farmers Market and Music Series - Sit out on the lawn just outside the Culture Mill lab, visit vendors and food trucks and listen to Jonathan Byrd in this beautiful and quintessential Saxapahaw Summer Festival.
  • 8pm - Culture Mill Lab Opening Party and Season 17/18 Announcement. Come back inside to celebrate the opening of the new Culture Mill Lab, learn about what we’ve got in store for the coming season, stay for drinks, dancing..and more!

PARKING: Due to Saturdays in Saxapahaw, please park in the meadow just before the Saxapahaw General Store, or the United Methodist Church directly across the Haw River on Church Rd.

LIMITED SPACE IS AVAILABLE for the Open Retreat Worskshops.

Workshop for Movers Living with or Without Parkinson's Disease
Apr
21
1:00pm 1:00pm

Workshop for Movers Living with or Without Parkinson's Disease

Workshop: 1 – 2.30pm
Movement Workshop for PD

In this workshop, we will begin by a chair warm-up, inviting participants to bring awareness to their breath and to their moving body through playful and exploratory tasks. We will use elements of contemporary dance improvisation as well as core principles from Argentine Tango, (such as leading and following, walking and connection to a partner) to transition to standing and moving across the space. Throughout the workshop, we’ll engage in a safe and nonjudgmental movement practice exploring various ways of initiating movement through the use of imagination, intention and physical contact. During this shared movement practice, our goal will be to both accept our limitations and to invite new movement possibilities liberated from the constraints of everyday life. This workshop is designed for movers with or without Parkinson’s disease.

Discussion: 2.30-3.30pm  
“Alles”: A Movement Discussion with Culture Mill

After a first event with choreographer Clint Lutes from Paris, France in December 2016, Culture Mill is happy to partner again with ADF’s Samuel H. Scripps Studios to offer this workshop. These workshops are the initial stage of a future Culture Mill’s project named “Alles” (working title) – A meeting of artistic research and scientific research, accompanied by the creation of an original work of Contemporary dance. “Alles” will unfold as a mutual exchange between professional dancers, people living with Parkinson’s disease, and professionals in the medical and scientific fields. Join Tommy Noonan and Murielle Elizéon, co-directors of Culture Mill, to hear more about the origins of the project and how the interrogative mode of artistic movement research and the expertise of professional dancers could be an alternative environment in which to open, expand and liberate perspectives on movement disorders from the constraints of traditional scientific research settings.

Aura

Aura

Aura

noun \ au·ra \ˈȯr-ə\
1. a distinctive atmosphere surrounding a given source
2. a luminous radiation

Tommy Noonan, Liam O'Neill and Matthew Ford will create "Aura" as part of Carrboro's SHIMMER Festival. The installation is both visual and performance-based. A single shipping container is set in a public space, neon words fixed to the top read: AURA to draw the viewer in. A glow through the cracks in the door with a fascinating radiance suggests the promise of something wonderful inside. Approaching the mysterious box further enhances the mystery, and the sense of wonder and promise. Will curiosity equal reward? The installation explores individual perceptions about Perfection, the Ineffable and the Unknowable within public space.  It also hints at authority and restrictive space.

Sketches for Auguste

Sketches for Auguste

A formal Showing by Jennifer Curtis, Murelle Elizéon, Dohee Lee, Tommy Noonan & Pauchi Sasaki / Culture Mill

Sketches for Auguste is a formal showing of a new work-in-progress by a group of world-class performing artists. Acclaimed violinists Jennifer Curtis and Pauchi Sasaki join choreographer/performers Murielle Elizéon and Tommy Noonan, along with performer Dohee Lee to create a multi-disciplinary chamber opera of sound and movement based on Henry Miller’s “The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder.”

This novella--which Miller believed to be his “most singular story”--depicts a clown’s near religious devotion to an audience through a trance-induced artistic offering that features an angel. Miller considered the process by which he paired a clown with an angel even more “surrealistic” than the final document itself. The notion of this work as autobiographical is as potent for Miller as it is to the performing artists, who will recreate the feverish state by melding music, movement, design, and text on the stage.

Sketches for Auguste will provide not only a fascinating evening of cutting-edge interdisciplinary work, but will also give a rare glimpse into a unique artistic collaboration. Curtis’s musical score will blend chordal harmonies with poly rhythms that will be interpreted through movement developed by Elizéon and Noonan. Visual aspects will derive from Miller’s own drawings as well as Lee’s costumes and Sasaki’s handmade electronic instruments.

All five artists regularly teach and work around the world. Jennifer Curtis was described by The New York Times as “an artist of keen intelligence and taste, well worth watching out for”, noting her solo concert in Carnegie Hall as “one of the gutsiest and most individual recital programs”; Murielle Elizéon is a French dancer who has worked professionally for 15 years across Europe, and is now based in North Carolina. Dohee Lee is a west-coast-based Korean artist with a deep history and practice in traditional Korean dance, drumming and contemporary performance; Tommy Noonan is an American artist who has shown work across the North America, Europe and Australia, and has written texts for The Performance Journal in New York and The Guidebook of Alternative Nows among others; Peruvian artist Pauchi Sasaki is currently a Rolex protégé under Phillip Glass, and has worked across disciplines, composing music for film, video, dance, theatre, installations and site-specific projects while applying new technologies.

Tickets are $15 (incl. NC Sales Tax) and can be purchased HERE

"Chew less before you swallow. Take your pants off before your shoes. 
Don't sleep on it. Send that email. A Medieval English KIng: Unready, ill-advised, and not knowing himself doles out savory stories, bad advice, and cake. A hydra of music by muses Donovan, Nick Cave, and Scott Walker endear Ethelred to reveal why life has been like putting a saddle on a sheep. Irreverent, bungling, and achingly beautiful, Dana Marks conceives and performs. Jaybird O'Berski realizes."

Workshop, discussion & master class with Clint Lutes (Paris)

Workshop, discussion & master class with Clint Lutes (Paris)

Registration: www.americandancefestival.org // contact: murielle@culturemill.org

1:30 to 3:30 pm: Dance/Parkinson’s Workshop: In this workshop, we’ll engage in improvisations that question our relationships to space, texture, each other and movement initiation. It is a modifiable journey that invites you to engage with the material while adapting the movements to your own body, without any expectation other than presence in your moving body. It is an exchange in movement, an open communication between each other, our own bodies and the space around us. Improvisation in this sense is the investigation of actions, a play on the interpretation of movements and interactions. We’ll work with games and with methods of how we connect with each other and our surroundings. We’ll each work within our own possibilities but also to identify new possibilities in movement through these investigations. The goal is to create a situation where every movement is correct and that we learn and share while expanding our knowledge of ourselves and each other. The last 30 min of the workshop will be dedicated to an informal discussion about the experience with snacks and beverages. This workshop is designed for movers with or without Parkinson’s disease. Suggested Donation: $10

4-5.30pm: Roundtable Discussion: Past and Future projects with Movement and Parkinson’s. Join Clint Lutes and Culture Mill co-director Murielle Elizéon for an informal discussion around the history of Clint’s work on the German-Israeli project: “Störung/Hafra’ah”, a project that brought together artists, scientists, psychologists, doctors and philosophers to study movement and the loss of control of bodily movement. We will informally speak more about this project and ways in which the upcoming Culture Mill project titled: “Alles”, which explores similar territory, might learn from and build upon Lutes’ previous work. Open to all interested. Free. Registration recommended.

6-8pm: Improvisation Workshop: Be More Like You When You Dance: This workshop is using elements of Instant Composition and is influenced by a mix of artistic and scientific research associated with Improvisation and Parkinson’s Disease. It will be a journey through body-texture, connection and negotiation. We’ll engage in movement explorations using basic tools that combine to create complex situations, that encourage us to be present in our bodies, our points of view and our relationships. The work encourages release, patience, generosity and honesty and will be physically adaptable to each person’s body, state and feeling. We’ll attempt to be present, wild, imaginative, connected and curious. Any level of mover with at least some experience. Workshop fee: $15
