Cori Marquis premieres her first full evening of choreography with her company, Cori Marquis + the Nines [IX], with unedrtsdaning this smees to be esiaer tahn you mghit hvae thgouht. Running May 6 and 7, 2013 at the Duo Multicultural Arts Center, the evening will feature a new work exploring the often-illusory nature of human perception.
unedrtsdaning this… sources comedy, magic, illusion, and the overwhelming amount of information synthesized by our myriad senses. Combining text, film, high-powered physicality, and “intricate and perfectly executed" partnering (Maura Donohue, Culturebot), Marquis’ choreography examines how psychological and scientific concepts can be investigated with and mapped onto the body. unedrtsdaning this… invites the audience to blur the lines between sensory experience, illusion and representation.
The performers are: Heidi Brewer, Alexander Dones, Brian Hendricks, Yuki Ishiguro, Cori Marquis, Jordan Risdon, Caitlin Yuhas
A sacrifice enacted before the audience’s eyes.
Conceived and directed by Argentinean choreographer Anabella Lenzu, “Sangre y Arena” (Blood and Sand) is a visceral piece of dance-theater that reconnects with the primal impulses that underlie ritual, juxtaposing intellect and instinct. In this interdisciplinary, multimedia production with projections, paints, water, and masks, Lenzu rediscovers ceremony and heritage. Tix $15 @ SMARTTIX
In RESET, her first solo show, Troy Ogilvie has assembled the talents of several choreographers to create an evening of solo dance at DMAC. Through the four distinct movement languages of Margie Gillis, Shannon Gillen, Austin McCormick, and Harumi Terayama, Troy explores the pleasures and heartaches of losing and regaining identity. The 45 minute show travels through the awkwardness of fulfilling a wild animal spirit, the subtle loss of identity through adapting to an outside environment, the muddy and uncertain waters of the 'true' identity and the socially acceptable but spiritually limiting role of highly sexualized women.

For the past ten weeks, Deganit has been in residency at DMAC working with dancers Elyssa Dole, Denisa Musilova, Savina Theodorou and videographer Kate Freer. "Untitled" is a work that uses toys and projectors. The toys represent a gateway into an existence that sells dreams, lies and unattainable ideals and stereotypes.

Keely Garfield and company back at DMAC with Twin Pines
KEELY GARFIELD "It’s been 18 months since Ms. Garfield’s last major eruption, and I still can’t say what that work was fully about — only that I want more of her hallucinatory, uncomfortable meditations on the human condition. This fall, she’ll occupy all three floors of the Duo Multicultural Arts Center. Oct. 28-30. 62 East Fourth Street, East Village; (212) 598-4320, duotheater.org."
