Dramaturgy Projects

The Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project
Wednesday, May 27, 4-7pm in the gallery of Gibney Dance 280 Broadway

Pele Bauch will be a guest dramaturg at Jeremy Stoller’s Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project.  Free and open to all artists, this project is designed to provide resources to playwrights, choreographers, actors, directors, devisers, and any other performance-makers who feel they could benefit from speaking with a dramaturg. Artists are encouraged to stop by with questions about research, project brainstorming, play structure, personal statements, project submission, development processes, text analysis, theatrical canon; or simply to discuss their work with interested colleagues.

Please let us know if you would like to come by and chat.

at 6/15 Green FREEImage: Gilded Mammoth, Bewildering Sea
a gorgeous community garden in Park Slope, Brooklyn: corner of 6th Ave & 15th Street

A site-specific dance work created for 6/15 Green, inspired by the landscape of the garden and the writing of Spencer Holst.  The duet is a collage of silent singing, undulating spines and arms, and blindfolded whispering — creating an adventure of images.

Grant: The creation and performance of Gilded Mammoth, Bewildering Sea is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC). 

Residencies: The company’s creative work this summer is made possible, in part, by a Signal Fire Outpost Residency and a space grant from BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange with support from the New York State Council on the Arts, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the New York Community Trust (Lila Acheson Wallace Fund for the Arts).

Critical Feedback Training: Pele traveled to Berlin to provide Fieldwork Feedback Facilitator Training, The Field’s European Network Conference, April 16-17, 2011.

Performance: Dixon Place Crossing Boundaries, May 31, 2011.

Premiere of H to Oh at The Chocolate Factory

H to OhWed–Sat, Nov 3–6, 2010
The Chocolate Factory

H to Oh is a dream-scape of vignettes: a temper tantrum dance splashing in a kiddie pool, a family photo, sibling rivalry, and lots of laundry. Part psychological landscape and part pure movement, H to Oh explores the quandaries, emotions, and sensations infused in private moments of ordinary routines and the fantasies of what we might do. The work explores the simple beauty and emotional complications inherent in life, even in mundane tasks.

Concept, Direction, Choreography: Pele Bauch
Created and performed by Bryon Carr, Jessica Winograd, Pele Bauch
Music: Mike Rugnetta
Directorial Consultant: Eva Burgess
Scenery & Costumes: Sara C. Walsh
Light Design: Vincent Vigilante
Additional Performers: Additional performers: Kristina Donello, Lindsey Drury, Tjasa Ferme, Erica Hochstedler, Ashlea Palafox, Amie Segal

H to Oh was created in a residency provided by The Joyce Theater Foundation, New York City, with major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
