Art Basel

thisiswater Productions, our production company, plans on taking an early edit of Finite and Infinite Games, the film, to Art Basel, the world's premier international art show for Modern and contemporary art this June in Switzerland. I see Basel as an opportunity to make this project visible to a prestigious community of artists and collectors. The cross-pollination of art, performance, dance, fashion and film is what thrills me most about this project. I imagine that collectors and museums alike will be enticed by the collaborative nature of this project. When in Basel, I would like to perform live excerpts of Games if possible. I'm still a sucker for performing live. I'm searching for an appropriate venue in Basel so if you are reading this blog and have a contact, please let me know.... perhaps the Hot Art Fair?
Check out Art Basel:
All of our effort and carefully laid plans are bringing this project further and further into focus. The coming two weeks promise to be exciting. The momentum is mounting! More news to come...

Yeang Chng does it again...

This photo just made my entire week. We've been moving forward with the women's piece in minute increments so when I saw this brilliant photo in my inbox this evening it brought made me laugh and feel proud- what a gift!
Jaime and Junichi are working well together in the duet which is turning out to be very different than what I saw in my head but beautifully understated. Manelich, our friend and an superlative dancer, came by to take a peak of our beginning steps and offered some insightful feedback which opened up the rest the rehearsal for me.
Mike, our Executive Producer, decided we should move forward on finding a venue for the week following our shoot in which we can perform Games. This is exciting as it will give all of our friends, families and the dance community a chance to see our hard work.
Not all of the dancers are available so we may have to modify sections and or replace people which is costly and discouraging in one sense but also a good step in moving forward in the event that we are invited to perform this piece on tour. I think it's important to have a group working together that can share prospectives and enjoy being together.
I am finally coming to understand what a gift it is to have a dancer believe in your work as you make it. I always tended to be a tad skeptical with my directors as if they had to prove to me they were clever. It's amazing how much I learn every day on the other side of the marley.
Tomorrow is soley a women's rehearsal day. I want to give the women a chance to really break free and dance their hearts out!
Finley and I had a nice meeting together tonight where we discussed future potential projects of thisiswater Productions. My friend Emily, an inspiration entirely, in town from France offered me this advice after her show last night... "Kate, this is the first and from here you build and build".
Did I mention that Yeang Chng, photographer extraordinaire, rocks my world? Yeang's future in the filed of photography is destined to be bright. I know this much is true.

Week 1 :: Auditions

Auditions were held Thursday Feb 25th at New York City Center Studios with great success.
It was slushing but he had an excellent turnout and great talent.
We thank everyone who showed up for their amazing energy and beautiful dancing.
This group of dancers came out and gave their all, providing us with a very solid base to work from.
We are quite excited for Callbacks, as much of casting has to do with creating a unique ensemble and seeing how the dancers individual styles mesh.
Big shout out to "the HULK" Jamie Verazin who stunned the group as rehearsal assistant by demonstrating the challenging mens' phrase time & time again.

Note: Fridays callbacks is rescheduled to Monday due to inclement weather aka crazy blizzard.
