(WEST STOCKBRIDGE, Mass.) – Anna Peretz Rogovoy will perform The rubble and the clang, a durational installation dance performance, during the opening reception of 30under30:3 , at No. 6 Depot Gallery on Sunday, March 3, from 4 to 5:30pm. The group exhibition, featuring the multimedia work of 30 young artists living in and around the Berkshires, runs from Friday, March 1, through Monday, April 15.
The site-specific dance performance by Rogovoy – who grew up in Great Barrington, Mass., and graduated from Bennington College in 2013 – invites the viewer to consider disintegration and resilience via a rigorous formal framework over a two-hour durational performance.
“My work is motivated by my belief in the body’s capacity to transcend logic and convey truth,” Rogovoy says in an artist’s statement. “Within a rigorous and articulate movement structure, a dancer will draw on internal resources as well as the living archive of their previous training and performance experiences. As the body charts its own unique course to navigate the precarious and elegant tasks at hand, deep layers of individuality come to the surface. I am interested in effort on both the intellectual and physical planes, fascinated by our perceived mental and physical limits and the points where those two overlap.”
Now a Brooklyn-based choreographer and performer, Anna Peretz Rogovoy’s dances have been presented at the 92nd St Y, JACK, University Settlement, Triskelion Arts, Eden’s Expressway, The Tank, Vital Joint, and the Judson Memorial Church (NYC); Cocoon Theater (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.); and Bennington College (Bennington, Vt.). Other performance credits include dances by Merce Cunningham and Mina Nishimura. Anna currently trains with renowned ballet teacher Janet Panetta and has been a company manager for John Jasperse, Michelle Dorrance, and Damian Woetzel. She survives in Brooklyn by working at a toy store.
Anna Peretz Rogovoy is the daughter of author and cultural critic Seth Rogovoy and Karin Watkins, general manager of the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center.
Continuing the tradition of previous shows, 30under30:3 — a varied and multi-dimensional exhibition of mediums and styles — creates a space for young, often underrepresented artists to showcase their work. Photography, painting, and sculpture mingle with weaving, mixed media, and dance, creating a provocative mixture of young talent. This year’s show – curated by Emma Sims-Biggs – features 20 visual artists: Nami Assir, Beatrice Butler, Lucie Castaldo, Jasper Cole-Kink, Marina Dominguez, Abigail Grix, Maizy Hillman, Miles Kinney, Danielle Klebes, Julia Matejcek, Mika Mintz, Elizabeth Orenstein, Zö Pezzano, Marley Reed, Lucy Rollins, Camille Roos, Rachel Shi, Rachael Warnock, Rowan Willigan, and Ashley Yang-Thompson.
30under30:3 will also present two other live events: a night of dance and film featuring performances by Marissa Finkelstein and VEERdance, plus a screening of ground-swell by JACKS, Allistair Johnson, and Amber Schmeising, takes place on March 23. A corresponding sculpture exhibition by Emily Kohl-Mattingly will also be part of the evening, which begins at 7pm. On April 4th, from 7pm-8:30pm, 30under30 will be hosting Jackson Whalan for a night of Live Beat Making to be followed by a Q & A with the artist for interested musicians.
30under30:3 will run March 1 through April 15, 2019. Most of the artists (and curator Emma Sims-Biggs) will be at the opening reception on March 3, from 4pm to 5:30pm. The gallery is open 8am to 4pm every day.
