Joe Monteleone to Perform DEXTERITY OF MOUTH AND WAR Solo at New York Live Arts
Dancer Joe Monteleone will be performing a solo titled "Dexterity of Mouth and War" on Sunday, May 1, at New York Live Arts with the PMT 15th Anniversary Showcase.
This solo is motivated by the imagery and information associated with the 16th tarot card, "The Tower". The work transmutes the high effortful charge, often seen in full-bodied movement, into an articulate and dexterous vocabulary. The work conceptualizes language into will, and places volition into the context of war. Through characteristic gesture, and poignantly tense shifts through idiosyncratic form, archetypal imagery is deconstructed in the body down to finely tuned geometric design. Positing language as a weapon, the work invites political undertones, set to a complex mix of electronic and experimental sounds arranged by Joe Monteleone.
