ArtHelix, in partnership with Curating for a Cause and SHIM will host a night of dance performances, sculpture, fine art, discussion, and dance celebration.
Participating Performers: ChristinaNoel and The Creature, Jennifer Roit, Sarah Chien, 96B, Danielle Russo Performance Project, and Maya Orchin with interactive body sculptures by Shani-Ha
Curated by Jackie Cantwell and Caitlin Dutton.
Dance 2 Dance is an all night dance and art experience. The event will begin with site specific dance performances consisting of spontaneously evolving choreography and sculpture during which audience members may be encouraged to join in.
Sculpture artist Shani-Ha will exhibit works that will be stimulated through the performances, experimentation and appropriation of them, either spontaneously or with a scenario. These actions will engage the viewer and performer directly and provoke co-presence and social interactions inside her pieces.
Throughout the evening dancers will initiate individual discussions after their pieces to encourage feedback with those present. We want to keep this open, fun and spontaneous, so don’t expect a panel discussion!
We envision the evening as an open source platform between audience and performers. ArtHelix was founded on the principle of encouraging collaboration between oftentimes isolated artistic communities. The dance and performance community in Bushwick is encouraged to meet and mingle with the visual art community in a gallery setting. The goal is to further connections and hopefully enhance the sustainability of each community inside the flourishing Bushwick arts community.
This will be a night to begin to create sustainable dialogue between dance, technology, fashion, performative, installation and visual. Please come help us celebrate and be a part of this new model.
