A Change of Mind Redux
ELISE KNUDSON (eliseknudson.org) is a New York City based dance artist who is currently interested in developing fluidity between instantaneous and premeditated choreography. When she choreographed A Change of Mind in 1999 it was a study in the contrasting shape and flow. This 2022 duet redux with Sienna Blaw is a study in communicating across time.

Meg Kirchhoff is a third year MFA candidate at the State University of New York at Buffalo. As a dance artist, choreographer, and educator, her work is rooted in creative collaborative praxis as research. Meg’s live performances and screen-dances have been presented at conferences and festivals across the United States. In 2021, she was the first dance artist in residence at Homestead National Park and the recipient of a New York Humanities Grant. Filmed on the shores of Lake Eerie, Fleeting and Unfolding is an atmospheric work explores the tactile and sensory relationships between bodies (both human and nonhuman). Using improvisational structures, guiding imagery and a foundational attention to breath as a connecting force, the dancers explore their relationship to site. Fleeting and Unfolding encourages viewers to slow down, and experience the textures, patterns, and inherent movement of a Lake Eerie

"Our bodies allow us to experience life as a series of frames. Frameshift, as a video, is a single moment (frame) within the mind, the smallest unit of consciousness one can experience. This frame displays the transition between doubt and assuredness – The state between static and flow – The kindling of action – The spark of movement." Director: Nate Reed, Music/Concept: Stephen Boursalian (mocap), Video Synthesis: Arturo Brisindi (@hardscience).

thank u for your support (excerpt)
David Appel has choreographed and performed work throughout North America, Europe, and in Mexico since 1973. His pieces are driven and enlivened by improvisation, as he explores the connection between codified dance languages and aspects of the movement of our everyday lives. His interest with groups is in how we find new ways to move together, individually and collectively wielding our skills and imaginations to create vibrantly danced conversations. “thank u for your support” (2019) was the latest manifestation of this activity: it sprang from an initial investigation into the idea of an “assisted” solo, as well as the reciprocal influences/interactions between and around us.
