Event Details

The Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) is pleased to host choreographer/performer David Neumann in his second of three residencies to develop his current work, “Distances Smaller Than This Are Not Confirmed” (working title). Neumann is the Artistic Director of Advanced Beginner Group, whose multi-disciplinary dances bring together gesture, word, and proximity to explore our contradictory lives. Through a humorous outlook he layers disciplines of experimental dance and theater to create complex works that challenge both the artist’s and viewers’ assumptions.

“Distances Smaller…” is a dance/theater piece inspired by his participation as the first performing artist-in-residence at the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) in California. Neumann tests the bounds of his own comfort zones by placing privilege, masculinity, and race in the context of the cosmic scale while relating the challenges of art-making to scientific endeavors by bringing the unfathomable scales of time and space into the theater and onto bodies.

Neumann will host an Open Rehearsal on Friday, December 1st, 2:00-3:00pm.
