Pressmeddelande

Rachel Tess i samarbete med Karin Thunberg, 3-5 april på MARC

How Long How Far är en koreografisk tolkning av monologen Hoppet (Jag ska måla mina naglar röda och slåss mot döden) av Karin Thunberg. Dansaren och koreografen Rachel Tess tar i sin tolkning av texten sig an den tidsrubbning monologen som format innebär. Hon dyker in i den värld av sinnesförnimmelser Thunbergs skrift väcker. Hur möter vi tiden i ett tillstånd mitt emellan? Vilken känsla har vi för början och slut? Vad finns mellan livet och döden och hur möter vi det med beslutsamhet, humor, rädsla, kärlek, passivitet, ilska och alla de odöpta känslor däremellan?

Souvenir on Governors Island

Anna and Kenneth

The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, LMCC, is pleased to host Rachel Tess for a residency to develop her project Souvenir at St. Cornelius Chapel at Governors Island.

Tess’ Souvenir is a project that investigates the relationships between architecture and choreography and choreographer and audience. The work more specifically explores the concept of a mobile architecture versus pre-existing institutional structures and how this design may impact the making and viewing of performance. In Souvenir, audiences are intended to explicitly experience the space, frame, bodies, and movement as simultaneously separate, related, and interactive elements.

During Tess’ 2014 residency, audiences will have access to both the studio process through Open Studios featuring in-process showings, and the design process through Open Hours for Souvenir Dialogue a small exhibition of documentation and ephemera related to the project.

Souvenir is co-commissioned by LMCC and BAC, with generous support provided by Princess Grace Foundation-USA.

Souvenir was developed, in part, during a Princess Grace Foundation-USA Work-in-Progress Residency at Baryshnikov Arts Center. Souvenir at LMCC in September, 2014 is made possible with a stipend for International projects from the Swedish Arts Council. Souvenir is also made possible by the generous supporters of Rachel Tess Dance (501c3 non-profit). Exhibition materials for Souvenir are on loan from the Wanås Foundation in Sweden. Accommodations provided by the Millenium Hilton.
