(NEW YORK, N.Y.) – Choreographer/dancer Anna P. Rogovoy will present a work-in-progress showing of “West,” her latest dance, at Eden’s Expressway (537 Broadway in the SoHo district of Manhattan) on Tuesday, March 15, 2016, at 7pm. Part of the Movement Research Open Performance series, which includes an audience discussion moderated by Lily Gold, the program features dancers Rebecca Hadley and Benny Olk in addition to Rogovoy. Admission is free.
“West” was created in part during a residency at Bennington College in February 2016, and according to Rogovoy, is a “technically demanding peek at effort, fame, and tumbleweeds.”
The Movement Research Open Performance series is a program of non-curated shared showings of experimentation and work-in-progress, for artists at all stages of their development. The events are centered around an audience discussion moderated by a Movement Research Artist-in-Residence or an occasional guest, experimenting with different feedback methods to support and inform the artists’ process.
Anna Rogovoy is a graduate of Bennington College. Her dances have been presented by The Tank, The Cocoon Theatre, and the Berkshire Choreography Project. She has performed in works by Merce Cunningham, Sarah Matusek, and Daniel Roberts.
Rebecca Hadley was born in southern California and lived there until moving to New York to attend college. Rebecca graduated from Barnard College in 2012 and has since worked with Pat Catterson, Garnet Henderson, Alex Rodabaugh, and Anna Rogovoy.
Benny Olk is proudly from Minneapolis, Minn. He has worked with choregraphers Lucinda Childs, Dylan Crossman, Moriah Evans, Sarah Michelson, Anna Rogovoy, Daniel Roberts, and Christopher Williams.
Last summer, Hadley and Olk performed in a reconstruction of Merce Cunningham’s “Crises” at the new Whitney Museum.
