Fort Worth musician/composer Austin Patton is collaborating with members of the Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth company to create an interactive music/dance work which allows opportunities for community participation before and/or during the performances.  Drawing inspiration from a variety of artistic traditions rooted in the collection and assembly of objects and movements to create artistic works, the collaborators invite guests from near and far to contribute their own found objects or movements from now through the premiere of the work.   Combining elements of modern day technology-based “crowdsourcing” with elements of post-modern aesthetic traditions (e.g. found object, ready-mades, collage, combines, trash art, junk art, art brut), “Some Assembly Required” enables people with adventurous spirits from anywhere around the world to contribute to a community-based art project through social media connections.

The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome—three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found

The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.

See the local premieres of short films from New York City’s 2014 and 2013 Dance On Camera festivals, including “Homegoings: A Dance” featuring dancers from the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. They will be performing an original piece by Janet Wong with music by Daniel Roumain (Director Christine Turner, 2013, USA, 5 minutes) inspired by both the award-winning documentary “Homegoings” which explores the African-American way of death and “Rules of the Game,” a narrative dance film where trust between four male factory workers dissolves under the unremitting surveillance of the management (Directors/Choreographers: Jeff & Rick Kuperman, USA/Canada, 2013, 8:15 min.).
