Tamara Henderson: 'Seasons End: Panting Healer' at REDCAT

October 15, 2016 - December 23, 2016
Saturday, October 15, 2016 - 9:00am - Friday, December 23, 2016 - 5:00pm

REDCAT: Opening Reception: Saturday, October 15, 6-9pm

Tamara Henderson’s writings, sculptures, 16mm films and paintings often refer to dreamscapes that the artist reconstructs in the exhibition space. She creates sculptures inspired by a process of notating ideas while under hypnosis, and her films are surrealist tales of passage, transformation and decay, in which objects and images are personified and imbued with the artist’s personal history and memories. Henderson collects objects from various sources, including found and recycled items and gifts gathered throughout her travels, and assembles them into large-scale installations.

Henderson’s first solo exhibition on the West Coast includes an expanded version of Seasons End, the ambitious installation she premiered at the 2016 Glasgow International, as well as a selection of the artist’s films and other works. Henderson’s recent research focuses on past and present totems, seasonal change, pagan gods and goddesses, fairies and scarecrows.  She has been working with the figure of the garden photographer, as well as a lofty body of plants, wood and fabric, captured as memories using a pinhole camera apparatus. “While she stands she remembers; while she remembers she photographs; her nervous system is a system of flash-bulbs.”

CalArts, 12/3 The Wild Beast; 12/4 Roy O. Disney Music Hall, 12/5 Voice Arts Forum Class

MUSIC: VOICE WORKSHOP FOR SINGERS AND COMPOSERS.

The Neue Vocalsolisten are researchers, discoverers, adventurers and idealists. Their partners are specialist ensembles and radio orchestras, opera houses and the free theater scene, electronic studios and countless organizers of contemporary music festivals and concert series in the world.

Neue Vocalsolisten established as an ensemble specializing in the interpretation of contemporary vocal music in 1984. Each of the seven concert and opera soloists, with a collective range reaching from coloratura soprano over countertenor to "basso profondo", shapes the work on chamber music and the co-operation with the composers and other interpreters through his/her distinguished artistic creativity.

According to the musical requirements a pool of specialist singers complements the basic team. The ensemble’s chief interest lies on research: exploring new sounds, new vocal techniques and new forms of articulation, whereby great emphasis is placed on establishing a dialogue with composers. Each year, the ensemble premiers about twenty new works. Central to the group’s artistic concept are the areas of music theater and the interdisciplinary work with electronics, video, visual arts and literature, as well as the juxtaposition of contrasting elements found in ancient and contemporary music.

MUSIC: Andreas Fischer (bass) studied Voice and Music Education in Stuttgart and in Vienna. Even as a student, his interest in contemporary music and working closely with composers had become a central aspect of his work. He has performed in numerous world premieres as a member of the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart and as a soloist and conductor. Guillermo Anzorena (baritone) was born in Mendoza, Argentina. He studied Voice at the Conservatory of Music at the National University of Cuyo. In 1991, he was a prize winner in the vocal competition "Young Voices" in Buenos Aires. In 1993, he was named "Young Talent of the Year" by the Richard Wagner Society. Various scholarships allowed him to work intensively with German Lied in Argentina. After completing his degree in Music Education at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst (Conservatory of Music) in Stuttgart with a major in Violin and Voice (both Lied and opera), Martin Nagy (tenor) was engaged at the opera in Annaberg-Buchholz, Germany. Since 1993, he has been active as a concert and opera singer. Numerous radio and CD productions document his solo career. His current work with the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart serves both as a focal point and simultaneously as an invigorating counterpoint to his activities as an oratorio singer.

Betzy Bromberg: 'Glide of Transparency' at REDCAT

December 5, 2016
Monday, December 5, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: “Images that, once seen, will stay with you forever.” — Holly Willis, LA Weekly

Following A Darkness Swallowed (2005) and Voluptuous Sleep (2011), Betzy Bromberg’s third experimental feature, Glide of Transparency, goes further into translucent abstraction while conveying the intimate feeling of being transported to a sublimated inner garden. Glide of Transparency unfolds in three movements, each layered with its own artful sound design (field recordings of birds and insects, ambient audio, vocals, and a composition for acoustic instruments). The non-narrative progression, Bromberg says, is “a journey devoid of compass bearings, forging pathways without a path.” Luscious curves, vibrant colors, and the scintillating trajectory of light over matter, over filmic texture, echo fragmented memories of paintings we have loved, and, embracing love, bring us to transcendence.

In person: Betzy Bromberg

The CalArts School of Theater in Collaboration with The Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles Presents Shikô Yoshida

December 6, 2016
Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

CalArts, E407

THEATER: Shikô Yoshida, a longtime member of the Awaji Puppet Theatre Company of Osaka, will present an illustrated talk about the company’s work. Following the lecture, he will demonstrate the manipulation of the company’s intricate puppets, which are operated by 3 puppeteers. There will be a Q & A following the presentation.

About the Awaji Puppet Theatre Company:

From the early 17th to mid-20th Century, numerous puppet troupes existed on Japan’s Awaji Island. These troupes performed locally and travelled around Japan to show their elaborate puppetry.

After World War II, the Awaji puppet play tradition was in danger of vanishing. In this crisis, a new puppetry troupe, the Awaji Puppet Theatre Company, was established in 1964 with the support of the local people who understood the value of this unique tradition. The troupe’s activity is highly regarded around the world and the ensemble has performed in 20 countries and areas in USA, Russia, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.

It takes long time to master this unique puppetry art. For example, in order to achieve effortless mastery, seven years are required for manipulating the feet of a puppet, seven more years for the left hand, and a lifelong period for the head and the right hand. The members engage in this tradition, understanding both the difficulty and the joy of the art form. In this current society where mass consumption prevails, many traditional arts have been forgotten, but we eagerly try to absorb and embody the essence of this wonderful traditional art and wish to hand it down to the next generation.

The School of Art Presents The Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Karen Rose

December 8, 2016
Thursday, December 8, 2016 - 7:00pm

CalArts, F200

ART: Trained in Eastern and Western Herbal Medicine, Master Herbalist, Karen Rose created an outlet for her teachings and healing modalities with the opening of Brooklyn-based Sacred Vibes Healing and Sacred Vibes Apothecary in 2002. Her inspiration for this work began as a child in her native home of Guyana, where she was exposed to how African, Caribbean and Latin American traditions profoundly influenced plant medicine and community healing. The legacy of these lands is the foundation of Karen’s spiritual and healing practice.

She is dedicated to empowering individuals to make informed decisions not only about their health, but their total lifestyle. She has developed authentic and enlightening materials as well as an extensive line of herbal products, all of which are available through the apothecary, apprenticeship classes and mentoring programs, such as her Get Off Your Knees platform, in which she weaves myth, fairytale, folklore and her own experiences to uniquely coach clients on how to become their spiritual, physical, and emotional best selves based on their innate talents and gifts.

A strong advocate of community partnerships in healing, she believes that all spiritual traditions offer guidance on the path to finding truth, and she has authored articles on the power and simplicity of herbs used to heal and nourish mind, body and spirit.

Karen and her work have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including on The FEED, featuring culinary celebrity Marcus Samuelsson, the New York Times, Black Enterprise Magazine, Organic Life, and the New York Daily News. Aside from her dedication to healing, Karen is also a devoted mother of three, who she proudly believes are her best apprentices.

Langley Hall and Patio

Paul investigates the divide between oral and written cultures with a focus on the literary and social effects of writing, print, and electronic technology. Paul deals in folded texts and folded meanings in order to examine the ways privacy has shaped the written word. Paul hopes that by immersing ourselves in each other’s private reading experience we can refine our understanding of what it is to be awake and conscious—reading as we are being read by others. There will be blankets, there will be tea, there will be spoken readings every twenty minutes.

December 9, 2016 - December 10, 2016
Friday, December 9, 2016 - 8:30pm
Saturday, December 10, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) presents its annual Winter Concert featuring choreography by faculty and acclaimed guest artists.

This year celebrates the extraordinary range of dance with three world premieres by School of Dance faculty and co-founder of The Flying Mammoth company Julie Bour; guest choreographer and Camille A. Brown & Dancers member Juel D. Lane; and alumnus and founder of The Guangdong Dance Company Douglas Nielsen. Neilsen is Artist-in-Residence in The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance for Fall 2016. A special restaging of Pigs and Fishes from the repertoire of Elisa Monte, as commissioned by the legendary Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, revives an essential work of dance for concert.

The evening includes the premiere of Nielsen’s The Nearest Useable Exit May Be Behind You, which takes its inspiration from various forms of identity, airport surveillance, truth and lies, and the popularity of coffee. Guest choreographer Juel D. Lane, who has been called one of the most gifted dance talents in the country, premieres his new work Lavender. Bour will premiere a new work The Scent of a Mémoire' inspired by the ever-changing alchemy created by the exposure of the self to others.

In 1982, Alvin Ailey commissioned Monte to create Pigs and Fishes for his renowned troupe. This powerful, driving piece focuses on the coming together of forces in a communal triumph over society and culture. Pigs and Fishes is one of the most popular works from Monte’s repertoire of over 40 works.

About the artists:

Faculty Julie Bour is a native French choreographer and graduate of the Conservatoire National of Paris. In 2006, Bour co-founded The Flying Mammoth, a dance company designed to bridge the gap between artistic disciplines. Her travels across the globe influence by her distinct choreographic style, described as international, contemporary, and unorthodox. Bour currently creates works for the The Flying Mammoth among others, which are presented in theaters across America and Europe.

Juel D. Lane is credited as the first local independent Black choreographer to be commissioned by the Atlanta Ballet, and was recently selected to participate in the 2015-2016 Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation New Directions Choreography Lab. A graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, the nationally renowned choreographer has worked with various dance companies and has released three dance-film projects: “Just Another Day,” “How to Kill a Ghost,” and “When the Beat Drops.”

Douglas Nielsen has been a guest instructor and choreographer at more than 40 universities throughout the United States and abroad. The CalArts alumnus established his own dance company, Douglas Nielsen Dances, in 1982, and founded The Guangdong Dance Company, Mainland China’s first modern dance company, in 1988. Nielsen was the recipient of the Lester Horton Dance Educator Award in 2003, among various other fellowships throughout his career.

Elisa Monte made her professional dancing debut with Agnes DeMille, and has since become a principal dancer with various companies, such as Pilobolus and the Martha Graham Dance Company. Monte, noted for her energetic yet classical style, was among the first choreographers to be commissioned by the National Choreography Project, for which she created VI for VIII for the Boston Ballet. Now into her third decade of choreography, Monte boasts over 50 works performed by her own company and others around the world.

The Music of Mark Trayle at REDCAT

December 3, 2016
Saturday, December 3, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: The superbly imaginative, sonically expansive work of composer and sound artist Mark Trayle (1955–2015) is the subject of this tribute by friends, colleagues and former students in The Hub and Bitpanic. Co-founded by Trayle in 1986, The Hub emerged out of the Mills College scene to become the most influential improvising electronic ensemble since Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV). Known for using networked electronic and digital systems of its own devising, the Bay Area group currently consists of John Bischoff, Chris Brown, Tim Perkis, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Phil Stone and Matt Ingalls. Adding to the computer music lineage pioneered by The Hub is the recently formed collective Bitpanic. Based in Los Angeles, it comprises Casey Anderson, Scott Cazan, Clay Chaplin, David Paha and Stephanie Smith—all one-time students of Trayle at CalArts.

Program in Program Order:

The Hub:

  • Trayle: In My Room (2010)
  • Improvisation (2016)
  • Trayle: Simple Degradation (1987)

BitPanic

  • Trayle: Pins and Splits (2005)
  • Trayle: Paper (2013)
  • Improvisation (2016)
