Premiered: March 8, 2015 at WeisAcres, NYC
Performed by: Jon Kinzel, Jennifer Miller, Vicky Shick, Saori Tsukada and Cathy Weis
In March 2015, Weis launched the first of a series of installations at WeisAcres that would eventually take over the entire building at 537 Broadway.
The first iteration, How is Dance Transmitted?, explored ways in which dance is experienced both in the live, present moment and how dances of the past are resurrected on screen. The audience moved through the rooms of Weis’ apartment and studio that had been transformed into varied dance-viewing portals. In one room, the audience viewed dances from the distant and recent past through a crystal ball. In another, Weis subverted the distance between audience and performer by mingling the the two groups on the dance floor.
