New York Live Arts Partnership | October 18 – November 2, 2011
Former Choreographic Fellow David Neumann returned to MANCC to develop Restless Eye, a work that explores the realm between thought and behavior, between describing life and experiencing it. While in residence, Neumann and his collaborators sourced a variety of data sets and statistics based on everyday phenomena and shared their investigations through open rehearsals with the local community, FSU students and with students at Sarah Lawrence College via Skype. Neumann and writer, Sibyl Kempson met with Dr. Karin Brewster, a Sociology professor and Director of the FSU Center for Demography and Population Health to discuss the utilization of statistical models within the developmental process. Neumann also explored the possibility of incorporating digital media in the work with collaborator Tei Blow.
The work premiered at New York Live Arts on March 24, 2012.
This New York Live Arts Partnership was made possible in part with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
