January 7th for an evening of structured improvisation curated by Loren
Groenendaal as part of January Fest at Mascher Space Cooperative, organized
by Zornitsa Stoyanova. The works in this concert share composition that is
not totally set and not totally free, but somewhere in between on the vast
spectrum of composition. This evening includes performances designed by
Philadelphia-based dance artists Asimina Chremos, Loren Groenendaal, and
Curt Haworth.

Asimina Chremos <http://asiminachremos.com/dance/> offers "angle #1," the
first in a yearlong series ("every angle shines a movable gleam") that is
meant to show how social, political, geographic, historical, and economic
contexts are impressed upon the dancing body. The piece includes
interlocutor Jumatatu Poe and director Janna Meiring.

Loren Groenendaal
<http://www.vervetdance.org/more-about-loren-groenendaal.php> / Vervet Dance
<http://www.vervetdance.org/>'s work, "Additive Accumulation" grows and
persists, rests and performs, plays and works. This performance is part of
 her recent line of research, which explores natural rhythms and
persistence. Her cast includes Philadelphia-based dancers Asimina Chremos,
Katherine Kiefer Stark, Megan Wilson Stern, Michele Tantoco, Mauri
Walton, New York City-based dancer Elise Knudson Philadelphia-based
musicians Wyman Brantley, Erica Corbo, Eliot Klein, Mick Ricerto, Julius
Masri, and Jesse Sparhawk.

Curt Haworth <http://www.uarts.edu/users/chaworth>'s work "Skeleton Key" is
the third in a series of his structures that use the limitations of space
and time as response stimuli. Interested in the collision of formalistic
concerns and humanistic values, the work is a platform for open
possibilities. Julius Masri and Christina Gesualdi will join him in the
performance, along with special guests.

Best wishes,
