MICHAEL SCHUMACHER AND ALEX WATERMAN'S 'DANS LE JARDIN' at STRUT FESTIVAL, PERTH, AUSTRALIA

The Courtyard, State Theatre Centre of WA, 174-176 William Street,
Fri, 11/28/2014 - 12:00am - Sat, 11/29/2014 - 12:00am

'Dans le Jardin' is a site-specific duet piece for outdoor space performed by Michael Schumacher (dance) and Alex Waterman (cello).

For this special Perth season, Waterman will compose a new score for cello and electronics for Schumacher to perform in the State Theatre Centre’s Courtyard. As always the work will unfold in real time in an improvised manner, drawing on
the feedback and flow of the audience itself.

Originally conceived for the Lyon Biennale,Dans le Jardin was performed in the courtyard of the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon. At that location, Alex and Michael worked with the geometry of the formal garden, the flow of the public, the statuaries, and the acoustics of the arches around the garden, as well as the open air of the courtyard setting.

The Kitchen L.A.B. with Sam Green, Maria Hassabi, Tina Satter, Alex Waterman

The Kitchen NYC
Mon, 04/29/2013 - 7:00pm

The Kitchen L.A.B.: Sam Green, Maria Hassabi, Tina Satter, Alex Waterman

The Kitchen L.A.B. is a new program devoted to presenting, discussing, and developing interdisciplinary works revolving around themes of common interest to artists in different fields—and, more specifically, considering the meaning and uses of specific words in contemporary art.

Throughout its 40-year history, The Kitchen has been committed to a spirit of innovation across disciplines and, in this regard, hosts an incredibly diverse audience. And yet this audience today is also surprisingly atomized. To wit, art communities see art, dance communities see dance, music communities see music, and so on. Such disjuncture pervades the contemporary cultural field even while there is an increasing interest among artists in interdisciplinarity. Thus, the same words often carry very different meanings for artists in different fields, and the same maneuvers signify in different ways.
