"if... a memoir" - Oct 25-26

About This Campaign

Time commitment: 6:30pm -10:00pm (3.5 hours)
Location: Finca Tres Robles, 257 N Greenwood St, Houston, TX 77011

"if… a memoir" is a love song written for humanity. Engaging questions of human freedom alongside human limitations, Sue Schroeder in collaboration with the Dance Artists of Core Dance, Christian Meyer (composer) and Simon Gentry (cinematographer) will create an evening-length, physical theater choreo-poem. Excavated and developed using the artistic research practices of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® (Anna and Daria Halprin), Ensemble Thinking and voice and movement scores, "if…a memoir" will reveal a performance literature that is bold, straightforward and expressive, timeless in its humor and humanity. This new work will draw from early 1950s Beat Generation culture and influences - questioning, jazz inspired rhythm, improvisational spirit, rejection of standard narrative values and seeming disorganization with a deliberate effect. Without linear plot elements or characters, "if...a memoir" will instead focus on creating an emotional response from and with the stage artists and audience. A product of artistic questioning and a quest for meaning, "if…a memoir" seeks to reveal what binds each of us, one to the other, in beauty, flaws, foibles, vulnerability and what it is to be inherently human.

Core Dance

Campaign to Support Core Dance

Core Dance creates art, facilitates art-making, and engenders art engagement for those seeking to connect with what makes us uniquely human: our intellect, our emotional body, our spiritual center. The body is our playground, movement our building blocks. Within our bodies resides the whole of life, every truth. Through dance and the process of creating it we activate that which makes us individually unique and connect it to that which makes us indivisibly One. Core Dance was founded in 1980 by Sue Schroeder. We call both Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX home. We cultivate dance awareness and education nationally and internationally through our three organizational initiatives: Core Performs, Core Presents and Core Connects. Core Performance Company, the professional contemporary dance company of Core, is internationally acclaimed for its emotionally lucid and instantly accessible work.
