New York Live Arts Announces 2012 Spring BASH

 in support of Fresh Tracks

Honoring Elizabeth Streb and Juliana F. May

April 2 at 7pm

New York, NY, – On Monday, April 2 at 7pm, New York Live Arts will host a Spring BASH to support its Fresh Tracks Performance and Residency program for emerging artists. Hosted by Honorary Chairs Christine Quinn and Gloria Steinem with Co-Chairs Eric Anderson and Judith Zarin at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, the BASH will recognize two extraordinary artists who received early support through the Fresh Tracks Performance and Residency program begun by Dance Theater Workshop in 1965 and now continued by New York Live Arts. Elizabeth Streb, who participated in the program in 1979, will receive The David R. White Award, and Juliana F. May, a 2005 participant, will receive The Jeff Duncan Award for Emerging Choreographers. This is the inaugural presentation of both awards.

The Spring Bash will feature downtown DJ Chrissie Miller, together with dancing, cocktails and interactive performances that showcase the range and aesthetic sensibility of New York Live Arts, one of New York’s preeminent producers and presenters of dance and movement-based art, led by Executive Artistic Director Bill T. Jones.

”Fresh Tracks gave Arnie Zane and me an important early boost to our careers with an opportunity to develop our work and present it to a thoughtful and enthusiastic audience,” said Jones. “It is an honor to continue this program under the auspices of New York Live Arts, and a special pleasure to recognize two talented choreographers whose work was also nurtured by Fresh Tracks.”

Once called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb's choreography, which she calls "POPACTION," intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work. The result is a bristling, muscle-and-motion vocabulary that combines daring with strict precision in pursuit of public acts of "pure movement." In 2003, Streb established S.L.A.M. (STREB Lab for Action Mechanics) in Brooklyn, NY. S.L.A.M.'s garage doors are always open for the community to come in and watch rehearsals, take classes, and learn to fly. Streb is a recipient of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation 'Genius' Award (1997) and a member of the New York City Mayor's Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission. Streb is also a member of the board of EMC Arts and a member of the Atlantic Center for the Arts National Council. She holds a Master of Arts in Humanities and Social Thought from New York University, a B.S. in Modern Dance from SUNY Brockport and two honorary doctorates (SUNY Brockport and Rhode Island College). She is the recipient of numerous other awards and fellowships including the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1987; a Brandeis Creative Arts Award in 1991; two New York Dance and Performance Awards (Bessie Awards) in 1988 and 1999 for her "sustained investigation of movement"; and over 20 years of on-going support from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

Juliana F. May is a New York City-based choreographer who has created eight works, including four evening-length pieces with commissions from DNA, Dance Theater Workshop (DTW), Barnard College at Columbia University, The Chocolate Factory, Joyce SoHo, The International Contemporary Ensemble (I.C.E.) in Chicago, Illinois, and The Repertory Project, a Cleveland-based company. May’s history with DTW began as a Fresh Tracks artist in 2005. In 2006 she was a Studio Series residency artist where she showed The Endless House and in 2008 she presented Hydra Cashier on DTW’s season. May’s fifth project with DTW, Gutter Gate, premiered in spring 2011. May has also been an adjunct professor at Barnard College as a part of DTW’s and now New York Live Arts’ Barnard Project, a partnership that pairs curated DTW/Live Arts artists with dance students from Barnard College and Columbia University in a semester-long residency environment.

The David R. White Award is named in honor of the visionary leader whose nearly 30 years of dedication to Dance Theater Workshop established the organization as one of the world’s most influential centers for the performing arts and creative development. The award celebrates artists whose tenacious spirit and clear vision exemplify the intellectual and creative rigor that characterized David’s work with Dance Theater Workshop—work that he still continues within the broader field of dance and performance. The Jeff Duncan Award for Emerging Choreographers is named in honor of one of Dance Theater Workshop’s founders, Jeff Duncan, in whose studio at 215 West 20th Street the Fresh Tracks program found its origins in 1965 as “Saturdays at Nine,” a program that presented new works by young choreographers.

Previous Fresh Tracks artists include: Jeff Duncan (1965), Deborah Jowitt (1968), Wendy Perron (1970), Alice Teirstein (1974), Bill T. Jones (1977), Bebe Miller (1978) Elizabeth Streb (1979), Tere O'Connor (1984), Amy Sue Rosen (1986), Ron Brown (1987), Reggie Wilson (1989), RoseAnne Spradlin (1990), Rosane Chamecki (1991), Maura Ngyuen-Donohue (1995), and more recently, Ivy Baldwin (2000), Juliana May (2005), and Vanessa Anspaugh (2010).
