New York Live Arts—Dancer Crush, favorite familiar faces on one sweet bill.http://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/new-york-live-arts%E2%80%94dancer-crush/1837/
The new executive artistic director at the venue, some guy you may have heard of named Bill T. Jones, created Floating the Tongue (1978), performed by Leah Cox, who performed a phrase once, again with painstaking narration, again with general descriptions for each move, and again with stream-of-consciousness associations, followed by the same procedure for several other phrases. It revealed how smart the body has to be in tandem with the brain, how smart Cox is. And Heather Olson has performed in so many companies that the Wall Street Journal did a feature about it. She is the face of Tere O’Connor’s work as much as anyone, artfully executing the scatalogical, gesture and funny-face-laden phrases.
