A drop falls. Time breathes. Movement flows.
 
DRYPP (drip) is a response to the global initiatives sweeping the planet toward separatism and isolation as a human species. With movement and media, DRYPP attempts to draw parallels between this small, yet dynamic and intricate experience of human time with the grand scope of geological time, utilizing footage shot in remote areas above the arctic circle and in deep underground caverns. Set to a violin concert by composer Magnar Åm and a supporting soundscape, the piece is a reminder that this moment in time is just a "drip" in the vast narrative of human existence.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Einy Åm Sparks (USA/Norway) is a contemporary dance artist and video editor who creates works in the realm of dance, film and music as the artistic director of EyeKnee Coordination (www.eyekneecoordination.org). Since its inception in 2011, EyeKnee Coordination has presented works at numerous venues in the New York area, as well as toured internationally to Norway and Japan.  Interdisciplinary collaborations play a large role in the company explorations.

DRYPP is made possible through generous support from Arts Council Norway and Dansearena nord and presented locally by Dance Theater Coalition with support from ZAP and Utah Division of Arts & Museums.

Bullets & Belles

Neo Doo-Wop Folk band Bullets & Belles (Salt Lake City) is releasing the followup album to their acclaimed debut, BE GLAD. READY is raw, heartfelt, honest. It's about change and navigation. It’s a reflection on this listless, seemingly pre- apocalyptic generation and the fear and truth that belongs to the sometimes painful process of growing up. It begs the questions: Does anybody know? Is anybody ready?  The album will be available on itunes, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, and through the bands website: www.bulletsandbelles.com.

Think Amy Winehouse and Dion & The Belmonts, but also The Mamas & The Papas and Taj Mahal. Their performance glides from hard hitting blues, to soulful doo-wop, to traces of country folk. Their sublime three-part vocal harmonies and deeply-felt poetic lyrics, paired with solid rhythms and well thought out vocal arrangements seamlessly bend through the rules of genre while always leaving the audience wanting (and often whistling...).  "READY" is set for release May 2015, under their own label, HeyHay Productions with a national tour to follow.

Kinematic Suite 5

Sound alchemist VCR5 and film artist Justin Chouinard join forces for the first time ever to perform KINEMATIC SUITE 5 - a suite of magnetic audio and manipulated visuals.  Real film footage and old school video cassettes get tweaked, bent, and melded together to create a pumpin’ yet contemplative phantasmagoria for the eyes and ears.   Their energetic live performance is partly composed, fractionally improvised, completely sensory exploitative and absolutely not recurrent (one night only!).  Aged, analogue technology re-purposed and revitalized through performance, an exhibited live conversation of sound and light. 

Joe Greathouse performs under the moniker VCR5.  His obsession with VCR decks (the ones that play VHS video cassette tapes) inspired his signature technique for mixing multiple audio tracks from these movie videotapes into a live cyberpunk electronic music performance that is chaotic, rhythmic, and energizing.  The sounds of VCR5 emerge like a combination oflayered video game sound tracks with a dance club vibe.  Greathouse’s illustration and graphic design work that accompany his music releases is inspired by German design house Hort, Peruvian fantasy artist Boris Vallejo, and comic book artist Mark Brooks.  The unique form of VCR5 captures the succinct beauty of patterns and clarity amid random disorder like windshield wipers coming into sync for abrief moment before falling apart.

Justin Chouinard is a media artist working with camera-less film, animation, video, sound-art, and performance.  His pieces explore themes such as the mechanics of perception, the reflexive qualities of film, and cinema’s dual nature as time + light experience and object experience. Chouinard’s current work is concentrated in a series of private and public film/projector performances exploring artist and apparatus relationships.  He is currently the Specialty Media Coordinator and Facilities Manager in the Film & Media Arts Department at the University of Utah and Vice Board President for the non-profit media production organization Reel Advocacy. Originally from Cody Wyoming, Chouinard received his BA in Film Studies from the University of Utah and later his MFA from The State University of New York at Buffalo.

DTC is proud to present KINEMATIC SUITE 5 - a new collaborative performance by these two awesome Salt Lake City artists.  Two shows, one night only!

Micro-Dance

Have you ever danced with wild abandon in your bedroom?  Then you know from experience that a small space doesn’t automatically constrict one’s ability to express through movement.  Micro-Dance poses the notion that spatial limitations can cultivate new movement vocabularies and spark alternative choreographic strategies that place dance in a fresh frame.  A frame liberated from the monumentality of a vast stage and all such trappings—allowing us to focus attentively on what is presented within our reach.   Presented in-the-round on a 4'x8' stage, Micro-Dance features five commissioned short contemporary dance works by choreographers Jerry Allen Gardner, Emily May, Ashley Mott, Ai Fujii Nelson, and Kim Schmit
