Left and Right is a collaboration between composer/performer Molly Joyce (2021 Toulmin Fellow), choreographer/dancer Jerron Herman, writer/audio describer Max Greyson, and director Austin Regan that examines historical myths of the traditionally cursed and dark left (sinister) side of the body and its relationship to the right-hand side, which was considered healing and beneficent. The piece unites and confronts universal, contemporary, and personal perspectives on dualism and asymmetry through the disparate yet synergic disciplines of dance, music, and poetic audio description. Left and Right was previously presented by National Sawdust as part of our quarantine-era Digital Discovery program in collaboration with the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU with support from the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.

Pozesyon, a Creole word meaning “possession,” is a new collaborative work-in-progress by the Haitian Afro-Electronica composer and the 2022 Artist-in-Residency Val-Inc aka Val Jeanty, made in collaboration with the Haitian choreographer Jean Appolon. The work, built out of structured movement and sound improvisation, is centered around healing through the art of surrendering. Jeanty’s residency is a collaboration with the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU made possible by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
