Joe Monteleone Presents Free Dance Concert STUFFED
Inspired by Babalon, a deity of myriad forms, this solo releases an onslaught of highly intricate movement phrases set to a collage of electronic, ambient, and interspecies sound mixed by the artist. Movements are further examined through a video feedback loop, projecting multiple copies of the dancer. The work expresses an unprecedented hypnotic movement vocabulary rich with nuanced idiosyncrasy and refined form.
Monteleone Dance is a research based dance company that presents cerebral multimedia dance works. The company and its Artistic Director, Joe Monteleone, are committed to the innovation of intricate movement vocabulary, developing new multivalent movement methodologies, and synthesizing the two to create multimedia performance. The artists navigate various subject matters, often investigating the beclouded realm between man and machine, individual and system. The work confronts the human experience, analyzing and probing the human psyche in the context of today's technological zeitgeist and cultural fabric. The company has performed extensively in New York City, as well as nationally and internationally.
