SAAAX, Field Studies of Lovers and Others by Sarah Konner, Amy Chavasse, Austin Selden, Alex Springer, Xan Burley
Field Studies of Lovers and Others

Sarah Konner, Amy Chavasse, Austin Selden, Alex Springer, Xan Burley

The Dance Complex kicks off its Fall Performance Series with an evening of collaborative work by Chavasse Dance & Performance, Sarah Konner and Austin Selden Dance, and The Median Movement.

Chavasse Dance & Performance and Sarah Konner and Austin Selden Dance present Emi, Amy and Mimi, the Celebrated Love Partners, and their Bicycle, Emi Nomo, a new trio by Amy Chavasse, Sarah Konner and Austin Selden that imagines three characters bound together through a shared memory of something lost.

The Median Movement presents You being Me being You and the Eye; a part field study, part composed duet created and performed by Xan Burley and Alex Springer which aims to examine and develop unique movement signatures through mimicry and embodiment.

PLEASE NOTE: each evening's performance features adult content and themes.

Sarah Konner and Austin Selden- contemporary partnering- Friday, 9/29, 10-12

Her choreography has been described as simultaneously absurd, smart and disturbing, and she chooses her collaborators well. (Quinn Batson, OffOffOff). Her verbal commentary on sadism and authority, matched by her powerful and aggressive physicality, was the most provocative piece of art I have seen in the past year, describes a recent solo project. (Weisen, Tampa Bay Art Breaker.) She danced in the companies of Laura Dean Dancers and Musicians, Bill Young and Dancers, and others and in many independent projects in NYC and beyond.
