Montpelier Movement Collective Performance Event
8/1/13 | 6 - 7 PM


The Dance Walk

The Montpelier Movement Collective has devised a moving installation tour to bring resonating imagery to the town of Stowe. By researching every Exposed visual artist’s project history and personal intention, and the mediums used, the MMC has structured dance performances alongside the visual tour to accompany the concept and story of each sculpture.

Each visual artist’s project history has informed the content and meaning of the dance work, and each sculpture’s contour, texture and dimensions has influenced how to both shape the forms of our bodies as well as layer those forms in space. By adding a moving dimension to the three-dimensional sculptures, new elements of each artwork will be brought to life.

Featuring Hanna Satterlee, Willow Wonder, Avi Waring, Chelsea Palin, and Isadora Snapp.

Polly Motley & Molly Davies Performance
8/8/13 | 6 - 7 PM

   "She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain reflects recent experiments by myself and the other dancers with repetition, music, restraint and relationship. The work will be organized on the front lawn of the Helen Day Art Center. It will include live music and the possibility for audience participation"

Polly Motley began making dances in 1974, after training in diverse forms of eastern and western traditional and experimental dance. Her work has been commissioned and presented in Europe and Asia, and in the United States by venues including: Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Danspace Project, the Asia Society, Jack Tilton Gallery, Baryshnikov Art Center and The Kitchen. She is very pleased to be working with mostly Vermont dancers for this presentation. She lives in Vermont and Texas.

Patty Smith & Robert Grundstein Performance
9/19/13 | 6 - 8 PM

Make Some Noise. Move Around

The 19th century was really okay. Even in the era of 21st century post-modernism, Romantics are people too, ya know. All of which means, everybody should come and see a visceral performance of dance, piano and costume. Patty Smith will elicit the meaning of French Impressionism by way of Chopin, and Grundstein will provide the Chopin and other works.  

There will be two performances of identical shows. They won’t be too long and won’t be too short. They’ll be just right and will reconceive the classical performance away from that of an aesthetic incarceration to a light of passage of fun.
