Assignments due Wednesday Feb. 27
We will spend part of class talking further about the choreographic techniques of Urban Bush Women, to process the reading a bit more and include Esperanza.
I discovered that Urban Bush Women has a great new website with good quality video clips. Check it out: http://www.urbanbushwomen.org/flix.php#3
If you dig around you can find a section of Batty Moves (different from the one we watched today).
Our next artist is Jill Sigman.
In a separate file you will find a short essay she wrote about performing her piece Embers in NY after 9/11. Please read this essay for Wednesday.
Also, please view this video about her latest work The Hut Project :
If you're feeling adventurous, here is a short video about her previous public performance piece Our Lady of Detritus: http://vimeo.com/9451285
