  • Scandinavia loves the Critical Response Process! At least the small subset of the Nordic population that we encountered at Kedja Aarhus seemed take readily to Liz Lerman’s four-step feedback process. Last month Dance Exchange’s Elizabeth Johnson and I travelled to Denmark’s second city of Aarhus for this gathering of contemporary dance practitioners from throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic nations.

  • Martha is the dancer we all watch in rehearsal with awe-struck smiles on our faces: how does she move that way? Her dancing, a paradoxical combination of force, weight and ease, portrays a mysterious depth--there seems to be history embedded in each gesture.

    Over 50 Class with Martha Wittman begins Monday

    Martha is the dancer we all watch in rehearsal with awe-struck smiles on our faces: how does she move that way? Her dancing, a paradoxical combination of force, weight and ease, portrays a mysterious depth--there seems to be history embedded in each gesture.

  • Meg Kelly, Dance Exchange’s Production Manager, actually does do it all. A moment that captured this for me happened last spring when we were performing The Matter of Origins at the Gammage Center at Arizona State University. We were rehearsing on the Gammage Center’s outdoor promenade for “Tea”, the second, site-specific act of the show, and weren’t able to use our full sound system. We couldn’t afford to lose the rehearsal time, so Meg played the music from her computer, and chased two dancers around—laptop in hand—as they danced from one end of the promenade to the other.

  • This spring I will set out on a 500-mile walk to trace the sources of the energy that fuels my home here in Washington, DC. The walk will serve as a period of research and development for my next project, How to Lose a Mountain and will be documented and reflected through an online component that includes a 500 Miles/500 Stories feature. This feature will allow people to follow the walk and hear stories from communities along the route.

  • My name is Florian Rouiller and I am an MFA student at the University of Maryland. This year I am working as an intern at Dance Exchange helping with Youth Programs, working with kids from ages 6 to 18. So far, this has been a new journey for me because I have learned new tools, methods and vocabulary for working in dance with kids. Although I teach a lot in the DC area,  this experience is very new to me.

  • Video, as defined by Bill Viola in a lecture at MIT, is the tracings of translucent light as exposed in real time to the camera. It was this definition mixed with the use of various forms of light illuminating the sound sculptures that were the inspiration for the title of my installation, Conglomeration of Light, which was presented at the Dance Exchange as part of the HOME series last Thursday evening.
