Festival

O+ Festival

Theme: X



October 11-13th, 2019
Kingston, NY
In developmental body organizations, X is one of the first patterns to develop. It is a pattern of contraction and expansion, radiating from the core outward and returning to the center. We  create an improvisational score that does just that, following this fundamental pattern through space and our bodies. Through a collaborative process we explore the symbology of X, through gesture, body architecture and marking of spaces with our physical presence. The performance will be durational, occurring over the course of a few hours, playing with the contraction and expansion of time.

Workshop

KJ Holmes

Somatics, Dance Improvisation and the Poetics of Performance


March, 2019 & Jan, 2020
Kingston, NY
K.J. Holmes is an independent dance artist, singer, poet, and actor based in Brooklyn, New York.  Her training began as a child with ballet and musical theater as well as judo and fencing. This blend of approaches is a basis for her consistent expression and art making.  Her dance studies at the New School for Social Research and with Andre Bernard (1979 -81) led her to improvisation and new dance techniques that were being explored at that time.  K.J. has helped to define, first as a student and now as a teacher and performer, many contemporary improvisational and somatic practices, collaborating with forerunners Simone Forti, Lisa Nelson and Image Lab, and Steve Paxton.  She continues to push into new frontiers of dance and theater with her love of research and experience.
