Summer - Fall, 2020
I am hoping that all are healthy and staying safe.  

Please join me on June 14th at 3pm at the Dance HUB in Santa Barbara.  I will be performing Untitled (Haiku) as part of an afternoon of dances hosted by the Dance HUB. Our performance tour to Italy has been cancelled.  We are hoping that the festivals are reinstated at some point in the fall.  SALONE! an event hosted by the Society of Fellows of the American Academy in Rome has been rescheduled for September 15th. 
I am looking forward to returning to New York City, beginning rehearsals again with the dancers and re-entering the community of artists.

All best wishes to all.
Love, Molissa

Rhythm Field, Molissa Fenley

Molissa Fenley, one of the most influential artists of postmodern dance, has had a lasting impact on performance. In dance, she has explored extreme effort and duration in highly crafted patterns and performed with an explosive, joyous energy that infused her work with endurance, balance, and life force. She challenged modern dance orthodoxy and redefined the character of a woman’s moving body in the late twentieth century, bringing postmodernized ritual to the stage.

Rhythm Field is a vivid and probing portrait of Fenley’s four-decade career, written by her fellow artists. The collection functions as a multifaceted look into one woman’s complex performing arts legacy. The result is itself an aesthetic undertaking that investigates the ways in which Fenley straddles dance traditions, art genres, and gender norms and has been a model to the field. The collection offers several scholarly analyses of the choreographer’s work, and is, above all, a vibrant record from the field. Rhythm Field sits at a necessary midpoint between criticism and scholarship.
