Salon Solo {Radio}: Jacqueline Lynch



Rosemarie at the Cinema is an evening at the cinema for the meet up group French New Wave Behave. Rosemarie leads the meet up as they watch, participate and point out bad behavior in the film they are watching. Using elements associated with French New Wave we get a glimpse at Rosemarie internally and externally as she tries to socialize.



Bio

Jacqueline Lynch is an actress, writer and solo artist. She is currently creating solo characters who share the themes of isolation and humor. These ladies have been performed at venues around NYC including The Brick, Manhattan Repertory Theatre, Triskelion Arts, WAXworks. Her show Rosemarie at the Cinema will be performed April 29th at Dixon Place.



One of these characters, Teddy, became a short video which played at the Extremely Shorts Festival in Houston. This is leading to more shorts - including recent collaborations with the dancers of The Creators Collective and Nachmo.



Artist Statement:



In my solo work I look to create women I have not played onstage before in an effort to diversify the personalities of women we see in a dramatic or comedic context. They are not the star of any moment, only of their own lives. As an audience we connect to the simpleness of their expression and let that lead us on a journey to the unexpected.

Salon Radio Special: GREAT AGAIN: an evening of two plays by Crystal Skillman and Chiori Miyagawa, the centerpiece of Project Y Theater’s 2nd annual Women in Theater Festival (WiT)






Both plays were commissioned by Project Y Theater,

Michole Biancosino, Artistic Director



Great Again is an evening of plays in two parts: Test by Crystal Skillman (directed by Jessi D. Hill) and In the Line by Chiori Miyagawa (directed by Kristin Horton and choreographed by Sonoko Kawahara). Both plays were commissioned by Project Y Theatre Company and written as a response to the November 2016 election. Together they will receive full productions as part of the Women in Theatre Festival, June 1-24th 2017 at The A.R.T./New York Theatres.



In Test, by Crystal Skillman, an English teacher in a struggling high school readies her junior students for the most important test of their lives. But when a symbol of hate appears in her classroom, she and two students on either side of the recent election, find their lives forever changed.



Chiori Miyagawa’s In the Line revolves around a woman who drops something while standing in a long line of people. She looks for the lost object as the line transforms into other lines – people waiting to vote, to buy the newest Nintendo, to get into the hottest restaurant – as she struggles to keep her original place. When she finally arrives at the front of this line that has shifted time and space, what she finds is a surprise. It is a magical exploration of loss, long lines, and letting go.

Artists Statement



Excerpt from “Conversation between two distressed/hopeful playwrights”

From the blog salon “Stages of Resistance” curated by playwright Caridad Svich.



CRYSTAL: It’s amazing Project Y Theater matched us, and the terrible outcome of the elections brought us closer. While we are such different writers, we’ve always been doing political work. Though mine has been veiled a bit in genres of comics, film, punk rock, etc.

CHIORI: I’ve felt that who I am - an immigrant, woman, Asian - made what I write political.

CRYSTAL: But now, we’re coming at it in a whole new way, or that’s how I’m feeling. It’s not only art we’re proud of, but there is such energy in these plays and this project. We’re fueled for this, really fired up.

CHIORI: I admire your energy. I still wake up with some degree of dread every morning. It feels like I’m standing in line holding my breath for the first female president to come on stage only to find out the play doesn’t exist.



CRYSTAL: What I love about your piece, Chiori, is how you actually address our feelings about waiting in line, and our sense of loss and grief in such an energetic, funny, and theatrical way. I love the style of it.

CHIORI: I appreciate the unpredictable actions of the characters in your play. The initial event that propels the play conjures certain expectations in the audience. But the characters keep surprising us. It shows the complex nature of people in emotional crisis.




Also featured in Project Y Theater’s 2017 WiT:



The Hrosthvitha Project, two nights of staged readings of new commissioned short plays. These adaptations will reclaim a piece of women’s theatre history by highlighting the first female and first German language playwright, Hrostvitha of Gandersham, while also making her work relevant and resonant to a modern audience through fresh adaptations by playwrights Caridad Svich, Pia Wilson, Julienne Hairston, Michole Biancosino, Lia Romeo, Stacie Lents, and Erin Mallon.

Salon Radio Special 2: Unfinished Histories - Activating Archives: the Alternative Theatre Movement Now, with director and co-founder Susan Croft



Unfinished Histories is a project documenting alternative theatre in Britain, focused on the period 1968-88. This period, following the end of theatre censorship in 1968 saw a remarkable upsurge of new work and an activist movement dedicated to taking theatre to new audiences, to make theatre with them and about experiences largely excluded from mainstream theatre, challenge existing definitions and experiment with new working methods and artistic vocabularies. Some of the 700+ companies set up over that period included theatre-in- education, lunchtime theatres, feminist theatre groups, community initiatives – taking professionals into working class and culturally excluded communities, street arts, which connected with protest movements and carnivals, Black and Asian and other minority theatres, the first out lesbian and gay companies, political theatres working for revolutionary change, highly innovative experimental groups, creating physical, visual work and performance art, new writing companies, Disability Arts groups, and many companies who were many of these things. Some still exist. Most have been neglected by theatre historians. Since 2006 when Susan Croft and Jessica Higgs set up the project, Unfinished Histories has recorded around 100 lengthy interviews with company originators, many of them now in their 60s, 70s and 80s, and begun to collect and preserve a scattered archive including posters, scripts, photographs, flyers, letters, props and audio-visual recordings through both physical and digital means. The archive is now housed at Bishopsgate Institute Library in London.




Working with volunteers and trainees we also aim to ensure the documentary record of theatre of this period is more complete. Central to the project is the need to share this past history to inspire a present of similar cultural exclusion and political challenge, through exhibitions, talks, readings, discussions, publications and our website.




Bio

Dr Susan Croft is Director, of Unfinished Histories, the oral and archival history project on Alternative Theatre in Britain in the 1960s -80s, which she founded in 2006 with Jessica Higgs. She is Clive Barker Research Fellow at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance. After working in the US with Omaha Magic Theatre, with Megan Terry and JoAnn Schmidmann, then as dramaturg, director and workshop leader in the alternative theatre scene, in 1986 she founded New Playwrights Trust, an organisation developing the work of new writers. She went on to teach Creative Arts/ Performance at Nottingham Trent and Manchester Metropolitan Universities before becoming Senior Curator (Contemporary Performance) at the V&A Theatre Museum. There her major exhibitions included Let Paul Robeson Sing! and Architects of Fantasy and she pioneered initiatives on audio-video documentation of performance and on diversity and inclusion and edited Black and Asian Performance at the Theatre Museum: a Users’ Guide. As Director of Unfinished Histories she has conducted numerous oral history interviews with individuals active in the movement. In 2013-14 she curated the exhibition and publication Re-Staging Revolutions: Alternative Theatre in Lambeth and Camden 1968-88. She has written extensively on women playwrights, including …She Also Wrote Plays: an International Guide to Women Playwrights (2001), the anthologies Classic Plays by Women, Votes for Women and Other Plays and Thousands of Noras: Short Plays by Women 1875-1920 (with Sherry Engle) on activist, suffrage and New Women drama and co-wrote How the Vote Was Won: Art, Theatre and Women’s Suffrage. She is currently working on books on Unfinished Histories; the influential community arts project Inter-Action; and an update of She Also Wrote Plays.




Artist Statement:
My research and professional practice as writer, curator, historian and dramaturg, from the 1980s onwards have, alongside developing new work as a dramaturg, focused on recording, preserving, exploring and reviving writing for theatre by historically marginalised groups and attempting to ensure that similar erasure and amnesia does not continue in relation to recent work. This has focused especially on work by: women, both historically and contemporary including international work in translation; Black and minority group writers, LGBT writers, collectives and alternative theatre makers; experimental practitioners, where work emerges from different kinds of devising process, writing for young people’s theatre, and various inter-sections between these areas of work.




This ongoing research and practice includes:

o Writing critical texts and bibliography,

o Staging rehearsed readings of ‘lost’ plays and developing relationships with theatres and companies,

o Creating exhibitions and events to engage new audiences with this work

o Advising on repertoire / plays to rediscover,

o Researching critical bibliographies including of women, Black British theatre, trade union plays ,

o Recording oral history interviews to document missing stories, process, context,

o Preserving archives, scripts and other records physically and digitally and encouraging this, where material is scattered and privately held,

o Making information available online to encourage access, use and engagement with these materials and histories.




In a theatre culture that seems increasingly divided between a product-hungry appetite for the new or engagement with a relatively narrow band of classics, this practice encourages, alongside these, a re-engagement with and valuing of the

richness and possibility of recent histories, as celebrating achievement – especially for groups who have been marginalised within mainstream histories; as inspiration and models for future practice, to engage and contend with in numerous ways; and in themselves, as continuing to offer value and be worthy of re-exploration, discovery and staging.

Storytelling – Simi Toledano, celebrating Unknown Matriarchs
Monologue

I will be performing a monologue that I wrote about my relationship with my Moroccan grandmother and all of the women on the my dad's side of the family who I have not met nor heard stories about. I explore the deep longing I feel to know their stories and who they were so that I can better understand myself. I wrote it to perform with the Kaleidoscope Project, a monologue showcase featuring stories from Jews of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, directed by Vanessa Hidary.




Simi Toledano is a Brooklyn-based performance and theater artist, writer, educator, activist and mystic. She is passionate about the alchemical power of storytelling and creative expression as tools for healing, unity, and connection. Though she is a trained actress, Simi's artistic eye has recently been focused on directing. Some credits include The Philadelphia by David Ives at the Producer's Club and Black Star by Kendra Augustin at The Secret Theater. She is a regular presenter on International Women's Artist Salon weekly radio show. She can also be seen telling personal stories on stages across NYC both independently and with The Kaleidoscope Project. Gratitude to God/dess. Reach Simi at Tamar.Toledano@gmail.com



Music/Poetry - Lucite Tokki, celebrating Korean poet Ok Bong Lee
The title of the first song is 'The Spirit in The Dream' which we wrote from translated version of Ok Bong Lee's poet which has the same title of the song. Both the song and the poem are about pain of lost love and missing someone whom you can reach only in a dream.

The title of the second song is 'No Reason', but it's tentative title since we didn't pick a permanent one yet. This song is about tiresomeness of conditional love.

Ok Bong Lee - (?~1592) was a very talented poetess from Joseon Dynasty who lived a miserable life for being born in the wrong era. She wrote this poem about her longing to meet her husband who deserted her. This poet shows 'Han' which is Korea's unique cultural concept.

Lucite Tokki is a female pop duo formed in Seoul in 2005. Both of them were born and raised in South Korea, and studied music. For over a decade, they released 4 full-length albums along with 12 singles mainly in Korean exploring various aspect of music from lighthearted acoustic pop to electronic alt pop. They moved to New York in 2016 Fall to find a new experience and sound. www.lucite-tokki.org




Historical Honoree - Literature: Zora Neale Hurston (1891 – 1960) was an African-American novelist, short story writer, folklorist, and anthropologist. Of Hurston's four novels and more than 50 published short stories, plays, and essays, she is best known for her 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. In addition to new editions of her work being published after a revival of interest in her in 1975, her manuscript Every Tongue Got to Confess (2001), a collection of folktales gathered in the 1920s, was published posthumously after being discovered in the Smithsonian archives.

Salon Radio Special: Women’s Artistry in Australia with multi-disciplinary artists Charlotte Evans and Michaela Ottone, visiting in town from Melbourne, Australia.





Michaela Ottone


While visiting New York Michaela has undertaken numerous dance intensives and classes, with national and international dancers, companies, and laboratories. In a Deakin University study tour with Movement Research, Michaela studied improvisation; contact improvisation; and contemporary composition and technique classes. In Movement Research's MELT workshops, Michaela studied the somatic practice Alexander Technique; contemporary; and further improvisation studies. She undertook a week long Gaga intensive with Batsheva Dance Company; and has studied African, capoeira and flamenco dance. Concurrently, Michaela has pursued analogue black and white photography practices, documenting candid street life of New Yorkers. She has developed a series of self portraits via reflective surfaces, which portray more than one perspective or reality for the viewer; and local, family run businesses, amongst others. Previous projects have included environmental portraits (particularly children); nature; travel and street photography.



In Melbourne, Michaela has improvised in collaborations with performance artists; and video and sculpture students; RMIT University video student work Mia Zen 'Seed'; RMIT video/sculpture interactive student work Sammy Sommariva 'Recode'; and performance artist Hiromi Tango 'Wrapped' project, as part of the Melbourne festival. Michaela's extremely interested in pursuing and deepening her dance and photography studies, in whatever part of the world she finds herself.



Bio:

Michaela is a Bachelor of creative arts (dance) student from Deakin University, Melbourne. Originally classically trained, her focus is principally contemporary dance and improvisation. She is greatly inspired and interested in the pedestrian; accessible; non narrative; pure movement of Judson Church legends Trisha Brown; Deborah Hay; Yvonne Rainer; and Steve Paxton. Contrastingly, Michaela's intrigued and fascinated by Ohad Naharin's movement language 'Gaga'; and the highly physical work of his Batsheva Dance Company. In New York, Michaela studied with Iréne Hultman; Bradley Teal Ellis; K.J. Holmes; Terre O' Connor; Jennifer Monson; Jennifer Nugent; Miguel Gutierrez; Jeanine Durning; Shelley Senter; Joanna Kotze; Ohad Naharin and Batsheva company dancers. Michaela studied analogue and digital photography, but is an analogue enthusiast. Influences include photojournalists from prestigious photography firm Magnum; Sergio Lerrain; Henri Cartier Bresson; and social documentary and child portrait photographers Sally Mann; Dorothea Lang; Robert Frank; Vivian Maier; and Larry Clark. Michaela wishes to complete postgraduate studies abroad, as well as undertaking large dance intensives such as Vienna's Impulstanz; to build her experience and understanding of the state and significance of contemporary dance abroad. Future projects include photography exhibitions of works from South America, Europe and New York; and the development of an artist website.



Japanese performance artist Hiromi Tango durational art 'Wrapped' project; in which Deakin University dance and drama students and I improvised responding to the stimuli and environment of the Queen Victoria Market, as part of the Biennial Lab, Melbourne festival.

Charlotte Evans


Charlotte is currently taking a workshop with dance artist J.K Holmes which will cumulate to a showing at the Judson Memorial Church in New York on the 27th of February 2017. Once back in Australia Charlotte's main focus will be her involvement in 'Open Circle Co' a performance group founded by dance artists Kathleen Campone.



Charlotte has been working closely with Campone and four other dance artists, Chris Chua, Elli Yew, Emily Laursen and Luke Fryer in the development of their own improvisational practice for group transformation, involving audience participation, movement, writting, voice, sound and abstract scenarios. Their most recent showing 'Finding the Game - Practice for transformation' was held as the Schoolhouse Studios in Melbourne as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival (2016)

Charlotte has also collaborated with spacial film practitioner Samantha Sommarvia, offering choreographic and improvisational movement for video installations and live durational artwork, their most recent showing titled 'RECODE' was held at the First Sign Gallery in Melbourne Australia (2016). This particular work is ongoing and may be seen again in the near future.



Charlotte often works with artists from other disciplines who envision movement in their work, recent works include:

-'Wrapped' - A performance installation with contemporary artists Hiromi Tango and as part of the Melbourne Festival (2016).

-'Seed' a short dance film by video artist Mia Zen which features herself and fellow dancer Michaela Ottone. Using a mixture of improvised dance and choreogrpahy the film explores how movement may interpret a natural landscape.

-'Dead Fish'- Choreographed by Kathleen Campone for David Porteus Photographic Exhibition at The Red Gallery (2015)



Bio

Charlotte Evans is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Melbourne, Australia who is currently completing her Bachelor of Creative Arts at Deakin University. Charlotte works predominately in the field of contemporary dance, her main focus being movement improvisation, performance art and instillation. Charlotte is also a practicing visual artist and self taught illustrator, constantly seeking new ways to create and execute art by sourcing unlikely materials, pushing her art into the everyday life, exploring abstract movement vocabularies and furthering the boundaries of audience participation.



Charlotte's interests in the practice of improvisation and authentic movement lies in its ability to bring you back to the fundamentals existing, being and experiencing. Allowing one to be an explorer of their own form, deepening the understanding of being a human body in space and raising ones sensory awareness, the source that allows us to experience the world. These key themes are explored further in 'Open Circle Co' an audience participatory, improvisational practice which Charlotte has been collaboratively developing with five other artists over the past year.



Charlotte is also the founder of 'Stick To Love', a non-for-profit project which aims to spread love and positivity through art. Charlotte designs stickers, each with their own meaningful message and hand draw illustration which she send to her followers who live all around the world. Charlotte encourages her followers to give the stickers away to strangers, family, friends or put them up in public places for everyone to see. Charlotte's designs have reached places around Europe, Asia, The United States and all over Australia.
