Five dances( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The classic tale of finding success and romance in the big city is given a contemporary, and unconventional, spin in Alan Brown's new film Five Dances. Collaborating with internationally renowned choreographer Jonah Bokaer, Brown has taken five gifted New York dancers, and fashioned a story about Chip (Ryan Steele in his first film role), an extraordinarily talented 18 year-old recently arrived from Kansas who joins a small downtown modern dance company"--container
Robert Wilson, KOOL, dancing in my mind : Works & process at the Guggenheim( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

KOOL, dancing in my mind is "a performance/portrait of choreographer and dancer Suzushi Hanayagi by Robert Wilson, Carla Blank and Richard Rutkowski"--Program notes. The project was commissioned to accompany the exhibition The third mind: American artists contemplate Asia, 1860-1989 at the Guggenheim Museum. The performance is introduced by Alexandra Munroe and Carla Blank, who speak about Robert Wilson's past collaborations with Suzushi Hanayagi, a Japanese dancer who performed both traditional and avant-garde dance. Blank discusses her own involvement with the project, which began with Wilson visiting Hanayagi in Osaka, Japan, when she was sufferering from advanced Alzheimer's disease. Wilson created a video of Hanayagi's face, hands and feet, which accompanies the live performance, along with archival video footage of performances by Hanayagi. The sound score includes music written by David Byrne for The knee plays, the first collaboration between Wilson and Hanayagi, and the text of letters, writings and interviews with Hanayagi, read by others. Blank explains the significance of the project's title. A complete performance of the piece follows

Crises, eyeSpace 20 [and] CRWDSPCR( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the dance detail on the Merce Cunningham Trust website: "eyeSpace existed in three different versions: one of twenty minutes' duration, and two of forty minutes. The dance in the 20-minute version comprised three sections: a quartet, a series of three trios of which the first two overlapped, and a duet. Mikel Rouse's score incorporated the use of iPod Shuffle mp3 players and an environmental soundscape performed live by one or two musicians, projected throughout the theater. Members of the audience could listen to the music on iPods (available on loan) or, if they preferred, to the ambient sound component (without headphones). Henry Samelson's décor backdrop suggested an imaginary landscape painted in bright colors. The costumes were unitards in various shades of blue. A fourth version of the dance combined the choreography and Samelson décor of eyeSpace 20' with both the Behrman and Lockwood scores of eyeSpace 40'. This version was performed only once at Brown Theatre, Kentucky Center, Louisville, KY on 23 March 2007."
