Liz Lerman Workshop facilitated with CIRCA Director Tim Nohe
April 29, 2015 | 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Dance Technology Studio, PAHB 231 with a catered reception on The Terrace, PAHB
The Critical Response Process was facilitated by Liz Lerman and Tim Nohe, and included a collaborative “deep-listening – deep seeing” performance, combining video projection by Stephen Bradley and flute performance by Lisa Cella.
Steve Bradley’s time-lapse video work explored a meditative perspective through quotidian visual events. By slicing time into precise visual moments, the video presented the listener/viewer with an illuminated focus on the familiar. Interweaving Bradley’s video was a solo alto flute composition by Stuart Saunders Smith, interpreted by Lisa Cella. This collaboration engaged our capacity for deep listening and seeing, and drew out CRP insights.
Participants in the Critical Response Process Workshop used the processes that Liz Lerman shared to give direct responses to Professors Cella and Bradley as they sought to inform and refine their collaborative performance.
The informal meal was presented in the garden setting of the Terrace and encouraged discussions of research and collaboration through a simple performance guided by winding a red thread around a finger. As the thread was wound, speakers described a project that particularly excited them. Listeners provided feedback.
