A Prize Every Time at Roulette October 12 – 16

This looks AMAZING!!!! Conceived of and curated by Sally Silver “A Prize Every Time” looks to be a fascinating series of investigations by super-talented artists. While individual projects may result in genius, or disaster, or land somewhere in between, there will almost certainly be more than a few flashes of brilliance during these 4 nights of movement-centered, on-the-spot collaborations. Each night Theater Directors, Choreographers, Coaches, & Instructors from diverse fields and backgrounds will construct new performance compositions live and on the spot. Each collaborative ‘team’ will work on and with genre performers (different each night) from dance, theater, sports, burlesque, and more, to create 3 or 4 works-in-progress per night in front of you: the audience.

Participants (subject to change & will vary each night) include

Choreographers: Monica Bill Barnes, Jane Comfort, Pat Catterson, Terry Creach, Wally Cardona, Douglas Dunn, Maura Donohue, Keely Garfield, Neil Greenberg, Patricia Hoffbauer, Sarah East Johnson, Pooh Kaye, Jonathan Kinzel, Bebe Miller, Rosalind Newman, Sarah Skaggs, Gus Solomon, Jr., Muna Tseng, Arturo Vidich, & Bill Young.

Theater Directors: John Jesurun, Young Jean Lee, Matthew Maguire, Theresa Buchheister, Damien Gray, Dan Safer, Gayle Stahlhuth, Tony Torn, George Emilio Sanchez, Scott Lyons & Jeffrey Jones among others.

Updates will be posted on the Roulette website.

Sally Silvers has been making dances for 30 years & her association with Roulette goes back almost as far. She has performed and taught (improvisation, composition, repertory) nationally & internationally. Her theoretical writing, scores, and poetry have appeared in several journals including The Drama Review, an anthology of new writings by women published by Illinois University Press, and many poetry magazines. Silvers has received support for her choreography from the National Endowment for the Arts six times, twice from Meet the Composer/Choreographer Project for collaborations with John Zorn and Bruce Andrews, from the NY Foundation for the Arts, the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts, and from a Guggenheim Fellowship. Silvers is a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” winner, has co-directed 2 dance films, Little Lieutenant and Mechanics of the Brain, and choreographed 3 musicals for the Sundance Theater Festival in Utah. She developed her concept of “live choreography” (making work live in front of an audience) in the mid-90’s. From 2006 to 2011, she danced in the recent new works of Yvonne Rainer.
