MONUMENT

MONUMENT

Premiered at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival 2016

MONUMENT combines beautifully revived works by legends of modern dance with original contemporary choreography. Fueled bythe critically acclaimed “reaccession” of pioneering modernist choreographer Ted Shawn at The Museum of Modern Art, and recent performances at Tate Modern Museum as part of “20 Dancers of the 20th Century”, Weinert recreates classic dances from the early 1920s and 30s. With ingenuity, reverence, and grace, he and an ensemble of stunning dancers perform classic solos by Doris Humphrey, José Limón, and Ted Shawn, then transport audiences to a new world of contemporary choreography that is “impressive, strange, a puzzle you want to solve, a social order changing before your eyes” (Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times).

Schlather, complement the collaboration between Mr. Pickard and Mr. Weinert for the project, which is made possible by the generous support of the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.

Proceed

Premiered at CR10 Arts
Hudson, NY October 2012

Proceed is a multimedia performance piece created by Adam H Weinert, Timothy Stanley, Victoria Bek and R.B. Schlather. Using three people, two projectors and 41 words, Proceed explores the frustration of expression and the compulsion to communicate. Each figure cycles through trials of movement, of oration, and of presence in space to convey what's not said, what is able to be said, and the exhaustion of saying it.

Created and Performed by: Victoria Bek, Timothy Stanley and Adam H Weinert
Art Direction: R.B. Schlather
