Choreographer/Director: Maida Withers Music: John Driscoll (live) with Maxwell Deem, vocals Costumes: Reema Al-Bawardy Lighting Design: Felipe Oyarzun Dancers: Ian Ceccarelli, Nicole Colameta, Cat McCormack (chair duet), Rebecca Melvin, Ben Sanders (chair duet) Videographer: Ludovic Jolivet Originally choreographed by Maida Withers Dance Construction Company founding members with music by John Driscoll and performed for the first time in 1974 in Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre. Much of the original work was improvised around specific melodramatic choreographed gestures presented in a dadaistic manner. John Driscoll, music director for the Company from 1974 to 1981, is performing again for the first time in Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre in 30 years. GW students will perform this excerpt as part of the 2014-15 MWDCCo 40th anniversary season.

        Watch Full Version at: https://vimeo.com/75741818, Film by Emily V Driscoll www.DriscollBabcock.com DRISCOLL BABCOCK GALLERIES presents Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost, Jenny Morgan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In this new body of work, Morgan pushes her transcendent figurative paintings to a larger scale, the pure magnitude of which amplifies the psychological intimacy of her work. Despite the immediacy of her figures, Morgan’s deep insights into her subjects emerge slowly over time; their blurred features, sanded outlines, and unique coloration push her portraits toward a revelatory abstraction. Morgan’s genre of realism is entirely her own. Technically intricate but experimental, ostensible yet mysterious, she obscures the physical to illuminate the spiritual. This constant search to reveal and express the spiritual is Morgan’s ongoing struggle—to express what she feels and knows, but can’t see. Morgan’s exhibition both acknowledges and offers tools for recognizing the invisible lives reflected within and around us.

            Maida Withers Dance Construction Company came together as a group in 1974, applied for Federal 501-C-3 tax exempt status in 1975 and received that status in 1976. This dance (18 min), created in 1975 by Maida Withers Dance Construction Company, is built on unconventional ideas such as undressing on stage on a stool while thinking about other things (intended to break the sexual aspect of undressing) along with stereotypical emotional gestures of silent theatre and melodrama (wringing hands, hands pounding the heart, wiping the forehead, biting nails, etc). Each dancer has a very small solo that is accompanied by the group. Dancers have choices as to what they do during some of the solos. John Driscoll provided the sound/music with found objects and nonsensical sounds of a plastic tube whirring, a collapsable toy cow that moos, and some electronics. This came from a period of artists leaving the tradition of modern dance and creating a new world of movement and choices by dancers during the performance. Concept by Maida Withers; dancers/choreographers include Brook Andrews, John Bailey, JoAnne Sellars, Liz Lerman and Maida Withers.

Pepper, and Matt Wellins COMPOSERS INSIDE ELECTRONICS (CIE) is a group of composer/performers dedicated to the composition and live collaborative performance of electronic and electro-acoustic music using both software and circuitry designed and constructed by individual composers. CIE members also create interactive sound installations. The group was formed in 1973 with David Tudor and is known for its pioneering use of original live electronics for both performance and installations, including David Tudor’s Rainforest project. The current members include founders John Driscoll and Phil Edelstein along with Tom Hamilton, Matt Rogalsky, and Doug Van Nort, and include guest performers. An ongoing commitment to collaborative performance of new individual and group works is central to CIE’s evolution. The group’s work includes the use of: custom-built software instruments, resonant sculptural instruments, rotating and focused loudspeaker systems and ultrasonic instruments with an emphasis on creating a rich sonic architecture. Numerous works utilize the resonant character of the performance spaces as instruments. The group specializes in performances and installations that focus on the integration of theatrical and musical elements. CIE is currently offering a range of performance works as well as short and long-term sound installations. For further information: http://www.cieweb.net/cie

                      Evening-length performance by Maida Withers Dance Construction Company, a collaboration with Maida Withers, choreographer, John Driscoll, composer, and Phil Edelstein, rotating loudspeaker animation. The rotating loudspeaker, hung above the dancers at center stage, is in communication with loudspeakers located in four corners of the vast Building Museum space. Choreography is built in a circular structure requiring extreme stamina since the dance features a continuous running base. Lighting design is by Bill DeMull; videography by Michael Moser; danced by Francis Babbs, Dale Crittenberger, Wendell Lockhart, Heather Tuck, and Maida Withers. This performance at the Pension Building (currently called the Building Museum) was presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society. "Maida Withers' love of risk and the unknown has led her and us through dozens of daring choreographic expeditions over the past decade...less interested in charming spectators than in prodding them into unexpected modes of perception, she's always preferred to take a grand leap into the abyss than an easy swim across the pool Stall. is challenging -- no less to the audience than to the dancers; it's also bold in conception, at once stark and vivid in atmosphere, and mammoth in dimension. ...Though the thread of a distinctive personal vision runs through all of Withers' works, no two of them are ever quite alike." Alan M. Kriegsman, The Washington Post World Premiere, Akademie der Kunste, Berlin, Germany American Premiere, Presented by Washington Performing Arts Society, Pension Building, Washington, DC Development of the rotating loudspeaker was supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.
