LEIMAY At Home Presents: Mongrel, a solo by Sherwood Chen (US/FR)


Dates:
Thu Oct 16, 2014 19:30 - Thu Oct 16, 2014

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

At Home is our performance series post-SOAK, our annual summer festival, presenting work from local and international artists throughout the year. This fall LEIMAY presents San Francisco / Marseille-based performer Sherwood Chen in Mongrel, a solo constructed in losing oneself in translation. Sherwood has performed for artists including Anna Halprin, Min Tanaka, Xavier Le Roy, Ko Murobushi and Liz Santoro. LEIMAY is excited to presenting his own work for the first time at CAVE.

Sherwood Chen, Mongrel

In an act of translation from one language to another, exists a collision between the guaranteed betrayal of source material and the moral ambition to make the effort anyway. Mongrel is a solo constructed to harness this tension, to frame the very missing of that mark, rendering foreign bodies in a single, enigmatic body.

October 16th | 7:30pm

at CAVE home of LEIMAY

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Moeno Wakamatsu


Dates:
Fri Oct 24, 2014 18:00 - Sun Oct 26, 2014

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America


“The basis of my dance is an attempt to make visible what already exists in the environment but was hitherto invisible and without meaning.”

In dance, if we position ourselves to perceive the environment directly, the environment itself will manifest in our body as presence, physicality, and movement. When the mind and body are in a status of acute listening, we can approach an expression of the true-self. This LEIMAY Ludus Training Lab will focus on physical and mental training to sharpen awareness, sensitivity, and concentration. How can the body be moved, not by self-volition, but by the properties of time, space, and matter? How to sense and embody the subtleties of density, weight, temperature, light/darkness, textures, and currents of time and space. How to clearly externalize and to direct felt sensations and desires as an expression.

Dates: October 24th, 6:00pm-10:00pm // October 25th & 26th, 10:00am - 2:00pm
Price: $160 full course / $56 single class

LEIMAY Ludus Lab - Body Weather Training led by Sherwood Chen


Dates:
Fri Oct 17, 2014 18:00 - Sun Oct 19, 2014

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Body Weather is kinesthetic and movement research initiated by butoh dancer/farmer Min Tanaka and members of his company Mai Juku, further developed independently by exponents worldwide. It proposes and generates questions about the body and vigilance towards its immediate, ever-shifting internal and external states. Working with direct senses, imagery and varied interventions towards the ceaseless porosity between flesh, bone, imagination and space to yield impossible and/or newfound bodies.
Together, we will challenge physical limits, scale and timing, evoking sense memory and re-examine the body as a dynamic, transformative environment. Bring exigence and your inquisitive body.

Dates: October 17th, 6:00pm-10:00pm // October 18th & 19th, 10:00am - 2:00pm
Price: $160 full course / $56 single class
