Edited excerpts from performances that took place at Ran Tea House, Brooklyn, NY, 2013. Video shot and edited by Fred Hatt.
Statement from the collective: "Antititled Dialogues is an improvisation performance collective made up of dancers, musicians, and media artists. We are engaged in researching the art of improvisation in a live performance setting. We believe that performance improvisation is the frontier of meaningful development both for the field of dance in particular and the performing arts in general. We work within our environment, merging its elements to redesign and frame the experience. Combining body language, visual art, performance art, music, and the architecture of the space, we choreograph the moment fully and spontaneously, together.
"Antititled Diagloues was formed in the fall of 2012 and is led by coordinators Dai Jian, Kristin Hatleberg, Elise Knudson, Rebeca Medina, and Ophra Wolf. Our work is on-going and we are committed to opening our doors on a monthly basis to encourage conversation and awareness about the potential of improvisational movement platforms.
"Performer Roster: Renee Benson, Rebecca Bone, Ali Fischer, Ayaka Habata, Karen Harvey, Kristin Hatleberg, Dai Jian, Elise Knudson, Guang Lei, Rebeca Medina, Ophra Wolf, Mei Yamanaka, Guixuan Zhuang"
