Intimations Dance is pleased to install new dance work at Aeronaut Brewing Company, a craft brewery and foods hub in Somerville, MA, for an evening of performance to celebrate the culmination of Boston’s National Choreography Month. Intimations Dance along with independent choreographers Sarah Mae Gibbons, Michael Figueora, and Wisty Andres begin the takeover at 6 pm with a series of simultaneous contemporary dance solos, duets, and trios in varied spaces throughout the brewery. Local musicians Sue Buzzard on violin, Blain Crawford on bass, Sean Peters on trumpet, Juan Dhas on guitar, and Victor Hernandez on drums accompany the dancers in spaces throughout the taproom and foods hub. Alex Ezorsky of Awespark Productions will provide live VJ projection work in the taproom so that audiences can view the performers on the big screen. Paradise Lost: A Movement Collective performs new dance work at 8 pm in the spirit of childhood nostalgia, involving the audience in an immersive dance-theatre experience. DJ Univers-AL closes out the night by building community beat by beat, and playing music for every moment.
Located in what The Boston Globe deems “Innovation Row,” Aeronaut Brewing Company offers a regular schedule of music and theater performances, trivia, film screenings, and other community events in conjunction with the brewery. “We’re thrilled to offer our space for this kind of creative, unique event,” says Aeronaut’s Community Coordinator, Liz Pratt.
We can't wait to dance with you all!
Informal NACHMO Showing have always been one of my favorite parts of National Choreography Month Boston. Despite the excitement of an audience, lights and a beautiful space, the dialogue we have with our community of dance artists is an important and powerful tool towards building culture of rigorous artistic inquiry into creating and performing dance.
The feedback ranged from specific to general, answering questions with a question, or pointing out what worked, what didn't work, and what they want to see more of. These experiences in NACHMO have inspired us to more regularly invite our dance community and the public into our rehearsal process. Look out for more open rehearsals and opportunities to engage with the choreographic process in 2015!
I am very excited this year to offer a targeted choreographic development workshop through NACHMO Boston. I invited Jody Weber to teach a 2 hour workshop with material from her Dance Composition and Choreographer series. She also inspired me to think about performance at Aeronaut Brewery.
For this short workshop, we focused on duets. We generated material on the spot and then looked at facing and spatial relationships. One of the simplest yet incredible useful tools we applied to
We danced. We drank. We played Super Mario Bros 3! What a kick in the pants! Way to start the year. Happy NACHMO Boston 2015! Thanks Tyler Catanella for leading the jam tonight and for Aeronaut Brewing Company for the beer. We'll be back at the end of the month to show you what we've made!
