NuDance at Riverside Theatre NYC December 9 - 11

From a media release:

NuDance 2010
December 9 - 11
at the Riverside Theatre, Harlem

Going into its eighth year, NuDance will present another group of exciting emerging choreographers. Ten dance companies in three evenings of fabulous performance, including Carbon Dance Theatre, Gallim Dance, The Dash Ensemble, Sarah Council and more.

Carbon Dance Theatre
Look Inside
A multi-media work by choreographer Meredith Rainey, designer/ composer Jorge Cousineau, and dramaturge Anna Drosdowski, "Look Inside" explores the dimensions of voyeurism through the use of dance, video, and sound. The audience is complicit in the tensions that are inherent in the act of seeing and being seen and the underlying dynamic of power that exists between the voyeur and the exhibitionist.

Sarah Council Dance
Shadowlands Journeys into the world of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Inspired by the stories of trafficking survivors, five dancers move in and out of confining set pieces to the haunting music of Greg Heffernan.

Dance Entropy
Echo of a Trace
Echo of a Trace is an abstract affirmation of presence and location. This trio is filled with goddess like imagery displaying female knowingness, intricate sensuality, and awkward agressiveness.

The Dash Ensemble
Sundowning , with several highly physical chapters that blurs the line between the rational and psychotic mind. This work takes its audience through a daring display of deep connections between its characters and the connections they make within themselves through both real and imaginative circumstances.

In dre.diohead the lines that define public and private life are blurred as we traverse from the characters' homes to their shared street. Artistic Director Andrew Palermo shines a light through the windows, out of the doors and onto the pavement to illuminate that which binds us to, and repulses us from one another.

Eleone Dance Theatre
Walls Behind Walls (2008)
What happens when you've made it through one crisis only to face another crisis; what happens when you knock down one barrier but another one comes up... but you… can't give up!

Helen Simoneau
Celui Qui Regarde
"a treat of choreographic craft and imagery with a balanced depth of characters"
This highly gestural and detailed work displays strong musicality, intersecting patterns and sense of ritual and inevitability. The women’s female strength is showcased with movement that is sharp with confidence and deliberate attack.

Flight Distance: One
The distance an individual places between themself and others is the inspiration for the creation of this quintet. Unpredictable timing and asymmetrical placement sets the tone for the relationships within as the dancers move across various planes reacting to their environment and each other, explore distance, pairing, interweaving, and eventually, collision and conflict.

Tze Chun Dance
For over a century, gender, race and class politics have been negotiated through Argentine Tango's intricate and powerful steps. Inspired by Tango's rich history, "Sunderland" uses modern dance to examine the Argentine spirit of speaking through movement.

CD Release: TriBeCaStan's New Deli Breaks the Time/Space Continuum in New Deli (Feb 7)

From a media release: New Release from Little Known Government of TriBeCaStan : Capital New Deli Found to Have Irregular Time-Space Continuum EverGreene Music - February 7, 2012 TriBeCaStan: News Alert. This morning Aljazzeera reported that the questionable nation of TriBeCaStan ( ) has made scientific breakthroughs in time travel. The unrecognized republic of nomads has broken the code of the time/space continuum. And by broken we mean: it no longer works. Applying sonic techniques once only known to a small group of punk rock shamans, the nation's most prestigious scientific entity, the TriBeCaStani FolkLorkEstra, uses sound alone to simultaneously place listeners in eras separated by decades and terrains separated by oceans. The breakthrough is outlined in an auditory compendium titled New Deli (distributed by the state-run EverGreene Music, set for release February 7, 2012 ), a recording that allows the world to experience a type of soulful networking mor

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020)

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020) New York City based singer and songwriter Shihori's new single Soul Trip is atmospheric and ambient. Interesting rhythms and interwoven melodic vocal lines showcase jazzy harmonic progressions in a slow groove mode.  As a songwriter, she uses electronic effects with impeccable musical taste. As a singer, her flexible vocals range from a sweet soprano to a strong mid-range. A veteran of the Japanese pop scene, Shihori moved to New York City in 2018, a move she talks about in a media release. "I was so surprised when I came to NY for the first time. Independent and strong women are respected and there are lots of different preferences in music and style. I thought, 'oh my God! This place really accepts uniqueness and freedom! I didn't know there is a place like this totally different world that allows you to be yourself. Everybody looks so different. So many races, colors, cultures, fashion, ideas...I am so
