It's all in the timing. No matter if you're delivering a joke, performing a new play or just putting something noteworthy out into the ether, the key to success is often just a matter of good timing. Case in point: the recently crowned Miss America 2016 came into the pageant as Miss Georgia - and in Lauren Gunderson's play, The Taming (now onstage at Nashville's Z. Alexander Looby Theatre in the "first east of the Rockies" production from Tennessee Women's Theater Project), we are treated to the "art imitates life" scene in which Miss Georgia becomes Miss America.

COLLEGIATE THEATRICS: Vanderbilt University's CATE JOCOLLEGIATE THEATRICS: Vanderbilt University's CATE JO
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 22, 2015

Take Cate Jo, for example: A native of Birmingham, Alabama, she originally arrived on the Vanderbilt campus with an eye toward a career in academia, ultimately changing course to pursue a career as an actress. Most recently, she played the challenging role of Bianca in Tennessee Women's Theater Project's production of Lauren Gunderson's The Taming, a fanciful contemporary comedy that fairly crackled with intensity as it examined popular and political culture in the United States, viewing the trajectory of American political thought from the earliest days of the republic to the present. Earlier this year, she played Lady Nijo and Nell in Vanderbilt University Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls. (more...)

Andrea Rosen Gallery Announces Representation of Hayden DunhamAndrea Rosen Gallery Announces Representation of Hayden Dunham
by BWW News Desk - Jan 20, 2016

Andrea Rosen Gallery is thrilled to announce the representation of artist Hayden Dunham. Dunham embodies multiple practices that inform an incredibly fluid and rigorous way of thinking and creating. 'For any age, Hayden Dunham is one of the most unique, talented and innovative individuals I've ever known; but born in 1988, she is also a representation of a future way of thinking, and a future way of creating.' - Andrea Rosen Hayden Dunham creates entire circulatory and structural systems. She is interested in the physical transformation and mutation of the body--the corporeal body and the object as body - and is equally interested in what we inflict on ourselves, what is inflicted on us through society, as well as unconscious internal transformations. Focusing on materials and their transformative effects both natural and synthetic (chemicals, metals, glass, plastics, minerals, porcelain, etc...), Dunham explores how the distribution and absorption of specific substances can change and augment our bodies. Methods of dipping, soaking, aerating, pooling, dusting and encapsulating are employed; through this interfacing, her works - the by-products of her active systems - are supported through induced transformations. The upcoming two-part exhibition BIO:DIP featuring Hayden Dunham at Red Bull Studios New York (February 20 - April 17), curated by Neville Wakefield, will afford the New York public an opportunity to see a significant presentation of Dunham's sculptural works. We look forward to deepening our engagement with Dunham's wholly unique trajectory, and share her work with new audiences. Following the recent announcement of Simon Fujiwara, these announcements will continue to build. Hayden Dunham (b. 1988) is from Austin, Texas and currently lives and works in New York and Los Angeles. She holds a BA from NYU Gallatin. She has participated in exhibitions and performances at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, NY; MoMA PS1, New York, NY; SIGNAL Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Farewell, Austin, TX; New Museum, New York, NY; and Colette, Paris, France.

Combining personal narratives, traditional Japanese Noh theater and Neumann's virtuosic movement and humor, collaborators Tei Blow and Sibyl Kempson unite with Neumann to reveal the shimmer of attention to realms unseen, the concurrence of unrelated events and the body as evidence of a will having to let go.
