Exploring the merger of movement and visual works, Gwen Welliver continues her investigations into how mark-making and choreography can be used to blur figurative and nonfigurative approaches to anatomy, gender, age, and sexual orientation.
Further developing Welliver’s interplay between disciplines to explore human form, Welliver stages the works-in-progress Beasts and plots as a series of open and closed rehearsals.
Beasts and plots is commissioned by New York Live Arts and made possible, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to The Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts. Beasts and plots will premiere April 3-6, 2013. www.newyorklivearts.org
