Archaea for the Evergreens

Choreography by
Anne Zuerner

Original Music by
Galen Bremer

Premiere: May - June, 2016 at the Evergreens
New York, NY

1] More Info:

Commissioned by Anne Zuerner to accompany 'Archaea for the Evergreens', a site-specific contemporary dance piece in the Evergreens Cemetery(Brooklyn/Queens, NY, USA) in June 2016. The term Archaea refers to the kingdom of microorganisms that create the underlying structure on this planet to which everything is connected. Drawing connections between formal explorations of circles, physical embodiments of history, lessons learned from the way the natural world deals with death and the mysterious aspects of our universe, Archaea for the Evergreens calls forth the questions that arise when confronted with the vastness of time and space that the Evergreens offers.

Light House

Choreography by Anne Zuerner

Original Music by
Galen Bremer

Premiere: May 28-31, 2014 at The Invisible Dog
Brooklyn, NY

1] More Info:
Light House is a continual evolution of movement, sound and environment that takes inspiration from the natural choreographies of water and light. Dancers manipulate fluorescent lights as they slide, float, fall and mark rhythmic lines through space. They shape their dark environment, journeying through various stages of movement that create a textured, dynamic, and multi-leveled world. Their relationship to the lights changes throughout the piece, as does their relationship to the world around them. An investigation of the intersection of formal structure and movement of the natural world, Light House embodies the inevitable forward thrust of time and seeks to find what ties this progress together. Prelude, the opening piece of the evening, explores the personal origins of Light House. Dancer Anne Zuerner conjures the creature inside herself and reveals her shadow through a highly articulate and sculpted movement vocabulary.
