This week at New York Live Arts


Studio Series
Lance Gries
Immanent Field


May 31 & Jun 1 at 6pm
In-Process Talks moderated by
Jodi Melnick (Fri) and RoseAnne Spradlin (Sat)  



Lance Gries’ Immanent Field, a collaborative work with Juliette Mapp and Diane Madden, is a trio that begins with the belief that there exists a primary field of conscious energy that pervades and connects everything. How do dancers, as masters of moving consciousness into action and form, access and create from this potentiality? How do time, space and content become differentiated through this active exchange? In Immanent Field, Gries in interested in creating a dynamic realization between what the performers and public sense as immaterial and witness as its material manifestation in dance as an art form. Using these explorations as a jumping off point, Gries views these seemingly intangible elements as essential formal ones, organizing them into a dance so they become the vital gestures of a choreography of experience.

May 28 at 7:30pm
Ford Foundation Live Gallery


Outside of a review-based qualifying system, where do forms of feedback exist for choreographers today? How do we talk about work? What are the values that shape our perceptions and language, and what are the risks and learning potential of critique? Lobby TALKS are organized and moderated by Marissa Perel.

Panelists for this week's Lobby TALK are Megan Byrne, Nicole Daunic, Andy Horwitz and Dean Moss

New York, NY 10002

Choreographer Yvonne Meier presents an evening-length program of two different yet interconnected pieces. This is not a pink pony 1 is a a Dr. Zhivago-like love triangle in wintry wartime. Dancers attempt to jump rope while threatened by gunfire, the movement is tightly scored and full of jealousy and revenge. This is not a pink pony 2 deals with bullying as a way to turn out rough and complex relationships. Unexpected situations ask for unconventional solutions.
