Jennifer Monson/iLAND: in tow
Initiated in 2013 by award-winning choreographer, Jennifer Monson, in tow is an ongoing performance research project bringing together 10 artists from 4 different decades. in tow straddles location, discipline, and aesthetic to create an evolving working process driven by what each artist brings to it. The performance itself is a site for destabilizing the familiar, testing new ground, defining difference, and creating a shared practice that resonates with layers of experience, points of view, and perspective.
"I was curious about how revisiting how the long-term creative partnerships I formed in the mid '80s in NYC with DD Dorvillier, Zeena Parkins, and David Zambrano could activate and reimagine experimental relationships with new artists from other geographies and generations," writes Monson. "Starting with the basic question of how and why we experiment, we have spent the past three years developing questions, practices, material, and scores that look at how movement, sound, and image can be used to research perceptual, philosophical, and social constructs in our current political and aesthetic contexts."
Every night of in tow is different. For those who wish to attend multiple performances, we are offering $10 tickets for each performance you attend. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
In addition to the performances, there will be free ancillary events on September 29, 30, and October 1 from 6-7pm. Details to be announced.
