Triskelion Arts presents “America Dawn”

Thursday, November 30 – December 2, 2017 / 8pm

Triskelion Arts presents The Moving Architects “America Dawn”
The Muriel Schulman Theater at Triskelion Arts
106 Calyer St.
Brooklyn, NY 11222
Tickets: $18 purchased in advance, $22 at the door
Purchase Tickets:  triskelionarts.org

Choreography: Erin Carlisle Norton
Multi-disciplinary Collaborator: gwen charles
Composer: Ralph Lewis
Performers:  Caitlin Bailey, Maggie Beutner, Léla Groom, Rachel Gill, Jenny Gram, Ashley Peters

Erin Carlisle Norton, director of the female-centric dance company The Moving Architects, will debut a new work “American Dawn” at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY from November 30-Dec 2. The work draws inspiration from a poem written by her grandfather Thomas John Carlisle “America Dawn” from 1976 inspired by a Louise Nevelson sculpture of the same name from 1959/69. A dance inspired by a poem, inspired by a sculpture. Collaborating with multidisciplinary artist gwen charles on video and design with their shared aesthetic of layering multi-sensorial elements, together Norton and charles are able to transgress borders between dance, art, and cinematography. Intergenerational collaboration with family extends even further in “America Dawn” through the use of sound with composer and second cousin Ralph Lewis and his added vision of sound painting and temporal landscapes with live musicians performing the score.  “America Dawn” lifts and brings to the stage the original sculpture’s textures and proportions, the poems’ optimism and cyclicity, and the beauty and architectural cityscapes of both, intertwining dance, original music, and multi-media projections, fully realized through the physically strong, exacting, and emotive six female dancers/performers of The Moving Architects.

The Moving Architects (TMA), led by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton, is currently seeking invested, inquisitive, and intelligent women dancers for projects beginning summer 2017. Dancers should have a movement foundation grounded in ballet and modern dance forms with the ability to execute aggressive, physically demanding, technical, and articulated movement. Additional skills needed include working intimately within an ensemble; ease with improvisation, movement manipulation, and partner work; and readiness for an investigatory rehearsal process. Audition is a workshop format that includes learning and manipulating repertory movement material and interacting through small group movement studies. Rehearsals are Sundays, and dancers are paid for performances as well as on a project-by-project basis.
