The Saturday, September 24th performance will be followed by an open discussion of the experimental contexts, questions and concerns that shape the in tow project led by Professor of Performance Studies, Ramón H. Rivera-Servera.
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 the long-term creative relationships 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. 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. – Jennifer Monson
