Mikros Kosmos, presented by Dharma Road Productions 
October 26 – 28, November 1, 3 – 4, 2006 at 8 PM at CRS
Following up last November’s sold-out run at Joyce Soho, Anemone Dance Theater created Mikros Kosmos, its 5th evening-length New York concert, for the intimate space at CRS. The program features live musical performances by violinist Christopher Tignor as well as original music by Kenneth Kirschner and Miriama Young, video projections by Shimpei Takeda and scenic design by Joel Sherry. Each dance is a distinct microcosm – defined by Anemone’s rich visual imagery and metamorphic quality. Episodes take place in icy Artic climates, during the downpour of a monsoon, and from a high perch in the treetops. Shifting stratospheres, Anemone and its collaborators address themes of isolation, love and sensuality, and the tensions found between nature and modern technology.

Anemone Dance Theater in the Catskills
August 17-20th Anemone Dance Theater presented site specific improvisational performaces in the serene setting of the Western Catskills’ Schoharie Valley. The company performed in Bouck’s Falls; a spectacular waterfall that cascades 100 feet into an enchanted swimming hole. Events also took place in the rocky river bed, on the shale ravine, and in the surrounding forest. The sessions were open to the pubic and were documented through photographs and video.

November 10, 11, 12, 2005 at 8pm
Anemone Dance Theater and electro-acoustic ensemble Slow Six premiere an evening-length collaboration accompanied by the luminous video landscapes of Lee Whittier. The Butoh-inspired choreography of Sara Baird, with guest-artist Erin Dudley, explores vibrant characters and sculpturally kinetic costumes that capture the dichotomy of darkness and lightness and reveal beauty in unexpected places. Lyric compositions by Christopher Tignor, performed live on strings, piano, and guitar, include improvisational elements and computer processing. Funding for this performance has been made possible by the Puffin Foundation and the American Music Center Live Music for Dance Program.
