January 15-February 12, 2014

Venue: Paula Cooper Gallery
Location: 521 West 21st Street, New York, NY
Program: Two Moon July: Film and Video from The Kitchen's Archive

Produced by Carlota Schoolman and directed by Tom Bowes, Two Moon July features an eclectic array of video, film, visual art, performance, and music compiled in clips to form a 60-minute montage celebrating the Kitchen's 15th anniversary. Bowes created the production by cropping and sampling footage from video and film works as well as recordings of multiple durational performances, many taped in The Kitchen's former SoHo location. The space had been specially outfitted for the recording as an outré, hot-lit theatrical stage with installations by Jonathan Borofsky, Brian Eno, Robert Longo, and Cindy Sherman, which appear in the final production.
 
The compilation opens with a clip of Laurie Anderson performing Difficult Listening Hour, in which the artist delivers an introduction to a fictional radio show. In a snippet from David Byrne's Report from LA, the Talking Heads frontman frantically recites titles of real and imagined movies that he can't wait to see. Short segments of film and video works by Michel Auder, Dara Birnbaum, and Bruce Conner, among others, are interspersed with Bowes' selections from the taped performances, a list which also includes Molissa Fenley, Bill T. Jones, Philip Glass, Arto Lindsay, and John and Evan Lurie. The production, in retrospect, reads like a prescient compilation of works by artists who would become icons of their time.

Ice, Dew, Food, Crew, Ape - the New York premiere of a work performed twice: once as set to a score by Alvin Curran and then again danced with STEP a poem written and performed live by Bob Holman. This work was created while Fenley was in residence at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, February 2009. Alvin Curran's score was created by his recording the sounds of the Nantucket ship horn against the sound of John Cage's voice reciting the five monosyllabic words of Curran's title. Bob Holman, also in residence at the ACA, watched rehearsals of the work underway, taking notes of phrases said during the choreographic process, directions taken, relationships expressed, movement described. These notes were then translated into the poetic form that is Holman's work. Standing in the middle of the stage and surrounded by the dancers moving through the choreography, Holman is sometimes in close proximity to the dancers, sometimes encircled as the dancers continue through their spatial constructions.

Mass Balance - music by Cenk Ergun, prop by Todd Richmond (NY premiere).  A solo for Fenley, the work marks the beginning of a new investigation of dances made using a prop designed or suggested by a visual artist. Fenley carries a 10-foot wooden dowel throughout the piece, experimenting with images of balance and weight. "Mass Balance" refers to the difference between the accumulation of snow and the ablation of ice of glaciers. Yearly measurements have shown a disequilibrium caused by global climate change.

Cosmati Variations are a series of works that Fenley choreographed while in residence at the American Academy in Rome, February-August, 2008. Each variation is inspired by an aspect(s) of the 11th Century Cosmatesque mosaic pavements present in many of the basilicas and churches in Rome. The inspirations are in terms of design: T-square and serpentine eyelets; in terms of measurement: movements or spatial travel that require three feet; in terms of ardor: demand of execution and in terms of form: triangles nested within squares.
