Workshops in NYC November

Aerial Arts NYC
https://www.aerialartsnyc.com
November 11th Saturday
Research and Destroy (silks/rope)
2:30-4pm Saturday Nov 11th
This class is for aerialists with some experience who want to broaden boundaries and identify the habits, assumptions and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work collaboratively, building awareness through technique, research, and experience, towards the goal of creating a coherent, thinking body. We will integrate transitions and skills into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists, being mindful of the question, “what are we choosing/drawing on, and why?”
Pre-reg: Be able to invert in air repeatedly, execute a clean hip key and know multiple ways to get into an S-wrap.

Classical technique/ Contemporary thought (lyra)
1-2:30 Saturday Nov 11th.
This workshop is for students that want to explore classic hoop vocabulary by way of contemporary thought. We will explore points of static and rolling contact and examine weight shifts that can help us find places of balance, release, and structure. You will gain movement awareness that supports intuition, technique, and your development as mover and creator.

Performing at the House of Yes. Thursday May 11th.

HOUSE of YES
2 Wyckoff Ave. Brooklyn, NY
Thursday May 11th. 7pm doors
Steve Reich’s Drumming: A Group Hallucination
https://www.facebook.com/events/452488365093769/

This is a group hallucination and you’re invited.
We give you the classical icon Steve Reich‘s minimalist masterpiece “Drumming”. As if this wasn’t enough, we add the gravity-defying ecstasy of House of Yes. The outcome is group synesthesia. Through the use of video projections, dance, and aerial, guests will find themselves inside of the phases and experience themselves out of body.

House of Yes’ brilliant aerialists will be joined by Katherine Crockett and Lisa Natoli.
Also on the program: Steve Reich’s gorgeous “Electric Counterpoint” performed by Daniel Lippel, guitar, Francoise Voranger, and Zoob Fernandez.

Curated by :: Daisy PressJustin AhiyonAnya Sapozhnikova
Performed by :: Sandbox Percussion and House of Yes company dancers and aerialists.
For those yet uninitiated…
Stephen Michael “Steve” Reich is an American composer who, along with La Monte YoungTerry Riley, and Philip Glass, pioneered minimal music in the mid to late 1960s.
Reich’s style of composition influenced many composers and groups. His innovations include using tape loops to create phasing patterns and the use of simple, audible processes to explore musical concepts (for instance, Pendulum Music and Four Organs). These compositions, marked by their use of repetitive figures, slow harmonic rhythm and canons, have significantly influenced contemporary music, especially in the US. Reich’s work took on a darker character in the 1980s
Reich is one of “a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history and he may…be considered, by general acclamation, America’s greatest living composer.
Drumming was composed for a nine-piece percussion ensemble with female voices and piccolo. Drumming marked the beginning of a new stage in his career.
