Class incorporates a seated centering and focus on breath connection which then leads to a gentle warm-up of the spine. After moving the spine in multiple directions, we will easily make our way to being on hands and feet and eventually flow through a simplified series of sun salutations to get the body warm. We will then explore balance postures, twists and back strengthening exercises and eventually make our way back to the floor for more restorative poses leading to savasana.

Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare’s Richard III

Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents Shakespeare's Richard III

Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents

Richard III

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Terry Shea

“Since I cannot prove a lover, to entertain these fair well-spoken days, I am determined to prove a villain, and hate the idle pleasures of these days.”

 

William Shakespeare’s murderous Richard will stop at nothing to be king of England. With wit and scheming, he weaves a bloody trail through his own family in his quest for power. Counter-Productions Theatre Company will close its eighth season with this tale of intrigue and violence in the 15th century English monarchy. This production is particularly timely because of the recent discovery and formal reburial of the much maligned king in Leicester, England.

 

“With a resurgence of interest in Richard, Duke of Gloucester, the usurper to the throne, we hear more and more about Richard the man and less and less about Richard, the monster,” says the play’s Director Terry Shea. “Counter-Productions’ plans to stage Richard III predates the recent media attention, but it only seems right that we are guided along by these contemporary events as we explore who Richard was and who he may not have been. An intimate, personal approach, we explore a cold, calculated killer, certainly, but also an opportunity to see things from his point of view, as broken as that may have been. Perception is everything and we are taking a chance to maybe see things a little differently with this Richard III.”

 

In the title role of Richard III is Michael Puppi. He is joined by Valerie Remillard Myette as Queen Elizabeth, Geoff Leatham as the Duke of Buckingham, Christin J. Goff as Queen Margaret, Becky Minard as the Duchess of York, Paige Barry as Lady Anne, Ted Clement as George, Duke of Clarence, Adam Florio as Edward IV, Jonathan Fisher as Henry, Earl of Richmond, John McGowan as Edward, Prince of Wales, Haley Pine as Richard, Duke of York, R. Bobby as Sir William Catesby, Bill Pett as Lord Hastings, Billy Flynn at Lord Stanley, Steven Zailskas as Sir Richard Ratcliff, Zivko Babic as the Marquis of Dorset, PJ Marchand as the Bishop of Ely, Kevin Broccoli as Sir James Tyrrel, and Matthew Parker as the Lord Mayor of London.

April 11: Human Movement in a Modern Context with Peter DiMuro
April 25: Ballet Technique with Andrea Dawn Shelley
May 9: Modern Technique with Annie Kloppenberg
May 16: Modern technique with Meredith Lyons ** 3rd Saturday special!**

Upcoming Class Info and Teacher Bios:

April 11: Human Movement in a Modern Context with Peter DiMuro 
Peter more often teaches a “human moving” class as opposed to a “dance” class. There will be rigorous technique including floor work, center warm up and lush movement across the floor. There will also an emphasis on you, the human moving the movement. Peter’s methods to attain this humanness comes from decades of dancing and teaching and from study  with great teachers/artistic directors Gerri Houlihan, Martha Myers, Liz Lerman, Daniel Nagrin and, oddly enough, being a human himself his whole life.

April 25: Classical Ballet with Andrea Dawn Shelley
This is ballet class with a focus on the importance of core strength, healthy body alignment, strength & endurance, musicality, and artistry. From the onset of class, there is a special emphasis on the distribution of energy while articulating classical ballet technique with an expansive quality.

May 9: Modern Technique with Annie Kloppenberg
Class will focus on developing articulate, dynamic, available, and expressive bodies in a dialogue between rigorous technical practice and targeted improvisational exercises. Movement phrases play with control, abandon, and their intersection, emphasizing principles of weight, efficiency, specificity, and torque to illuminate the patterning of movement rather than the action of it alone. Movement sequences are designed to facilitate inquiry into how one might create the physical conditions which allow the body to perform as its most expressive, most dynamic instrument. We will explore virtuosity and subtle performance textures, increasing dynamic range and depth, valuing individuality in all movement. We work towards greater adaptability of our physical instruments. The simple version: we move big, sweat a lot, and have a great time!

May 16: Modern Technique with Meredith Lyons
We will create a container for versatility, abandon, athleticism and specificity. Within this class we will find the partner in ourselves, and seek to find how we can balance that amongst one another. After a cumulative warm up using elements of Barteneiff Fundamentals that move in and out of the floor along with elements of Release Technique, students will dive into the richly diverse movement style that is rooted in improvisation and contact. Movement phrases and combinations seek to inspire risk, investigation and choice as a means of an artists discovery and unique perspective. Tend to the body, push it to the max, risk falling, and say something on the way down! It is encouraged to find the artist in the student and an exchange in the room. (knee pads and layers highly encouraged!)

Chris Pitsiokos + Philip White, Titans of Jazz (Luke Moldof + Mark Cetilia), Stephan Moore (solo) +1 special guest @ AS220 Main Stage
May 10 @ 9:00 pm – May 11 @ 1:00 am
Chris Pitsiokos + Philip White
Saxophone and Electronics violently collide and seamlessly meld, explode and cauterize with vehement immediacy into a set of six real time compositions. With a common ear towards clear, powerful, and assertive statements Chris Pitsiokos and Philip White draw from equal parts David Tudor, Roscoe Mitchell, Eliane Radigue and Merzbow. The duo press themselves into the listener with unerring decisiveness and complete aural honesty.

Villiage voice review of Ende Tymes performance:

http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2014/05/ende_tymes_festival_highlights.php

Composer, performer and improviser Philip White works with electronics at the intersection of noise, jazz and contemporary concert music. Current projects include R WE WHO R WE (with Ted Hearne), Colonic Youth (with James Ilgenfritz, Kevin Shea and Dan Blake) and duos with Chris Pitsiokos, Bob Bellerue and Taylor Levine. His music has been released on New Focus Recordings, Infrequent Seams and Tape Drift Records. It has been described as “utterly gripping” (Time Out Chicago), “bona fide evocative music” (Brooklyn Rail), and a “vibrant textural tapestry” (Wall Street Journal).

Chris Pitsiokos is a saxophonist, composer, and improviser. His music combines the intensity and immediacy of no wave and noise with the lyricism and forward propulsion of jazz and the abstract detail of contemporary classical composers Iannis Xenakis, Briany Ferneyhough, and Helmut Lachenmann. Recent/current collaborators include Lydia Lunch, Tyshawn Sorey, Peter Evans, Kevin Shea, Brian Chase, Elliott Sharp, Mick Barr, Marc Edwards, Philip White, and Weasel Walter. Chris has performed throughout Europe, Japan, Australia, and the US. In addition to performing and composing music, Chris runs his own record label, Eleatic records, curates the Gadfly Series at New York venue Spectrum, and programs a radio show at WKCR-FM.

 
Mark Cetilia is a sound / media artist positioned at the nexus of analogue and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design, and sound creation, Cetilia’s practice is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. For over a decade, he has worked to develop idiomatic performance systems utilizing custom hardware and software, manifesting in a rich tapestry of sound and image. Mark is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1 (with Laura Cetilia), the unpredictable cybernetic entity Titans of Jazz (with Luke Moldof), and the experimental media art group Redux (with Joe Cantrell). Cetilia’s work has been screened / installed at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London, UK), the Ben-Ari Museum of Contemporary Art (Bat Yam, IL), R.K. Projects (Providence, RI), the Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), and SoundWalk (Long Beach, CA). He has performed widely throughout the U.S. and abroad at venues including Café OTO (London, UK), the Borealis Festival (Bergen, NO), STEIM (Amsterdam, NL), the REDCAT Theater at Disney Hall (Los Angeles), Issue Project Room (Brooklyn, NY), Menza Pri Koritu (Ljubljana, SI), Uganda (Jerusalem, IL), the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, and Electronic Church (Berlin, DE). His sound works have been published by Interval Recordings, Dragon’s Eye, Radical Matters, Iynges, Anarchymoon, Quiet Design, and the Estuary Ltd. imprint, which he runs together with his partner Laura.

Luke Moldof is an electronic musician based out of Providence, Rhode Island. He received a BM from the New England Conservatory of Music. His current work utilizes flexible real-time modular electronic systems that split the difference between composition and improvisation through complex feedback loops and varying degrees of controlled randomness. Often these systems are made to respond to or coincide with the outside influence of reel to reel tape loops, field recordings, and prepared guitar improvisations. Moldof has performed at venues across the United States and has collaborated with artists such as Greg Kelley, Joe Morris, Vic Rawlings, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Howard Stelzer, CF, and Stephen Drury’s Callithumpian Consort. He is a member of the experimental electronic duo, Perispirit alongside Ricardo Donoso, as well as the deceased power electronic duo Craniopagus, with Jesse Ward. He has released recordings on Hospital Productions, Digitalis Industries, Ecstatic Peace, Ekhein, and his own most likely defunct Razors and Medicine imprint, amongst others.

Stephan Moore is a composer, improviser, audio artist, sound designer, teacher, and curator based in Pawtucket. His creative work currently manifests as electronic studio compositions, solo and group improvisations, sound installation works, scores for collaborative performance pieces, and sound designs for unusual circumstances. He is the president of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology and a recent member of Composers Inside Electronics. He completed his doctoral studies at Brown University this year, in the Electronic Music and Multimedia Composition program.
