CPR presents a weekend festival of works by local and international emerging and established choreographers in dance and performance curated from an open call submission process. Fall Movement 2015 features six diverse artists and works exploring the exchanges between bodies and architecture, performer and audience, and the limits of representation. This year’s Fall Movement choreographers include Mirenka Cechova, Johnnie Cruise Mercer, Doug LeCours, In Kyung Lee, Suzan D. Polat, and Paul Singh.

Festival Program
November 12: Mirenka Cechova, Doug LeCours, In Kyung Lee, and Johnnie Cruise Mercer
November 13: Paul Singh, Suzan D. Polat, Doug LeCours, and Johnnie Cruise Mercer
November 14: In Kyung Lee, Mirenka Cechova, Paul Singh, and Suzan D. Polat

Mirenka Cechova Vivisectic researches the representation of the female body and the stereotypical roles assigned to her in the context of an experiment on living organisms. Cechova empowers the audience to interpret and dissect the figures’ significance through viewing.

Doug LeCours PITY PARTY inserts the queer male body into narratives of tragic women in order to propose queerness as an experience of loss and reclaim sadness as productive and necessary.

In Kyung Lee Ocean train (how to love a person) is a study on space. As if brushes soaked with ink, the bodies paint the space over and over again, in controlled and precise, and passionate manner.

Johnnie Cruise Mercer [of color] is a movement investigation/collaboration exploring America’s inconsistent dialogue between the Africanist aesthetic and its Eurocentric counterpart.

Suzan D. Polat occult object i is a performance that exists to create a space and time for affects to pass between and among the performer, the spectators, and the site.

Paul Singh Like passing from reality, to imagination and then back, Eternal uses the architecture of the space to inspire and drive the movement and then lets sensation take over; then feeds back into the architecture again.

Fall Movement 2015 selection panel: Lisa Parra, Alexis Zaccarello, Leigh Lotocki, & Ricarrdo Valentine.
