CalArts, Langley Hall
INSTITUTE: A series of workshop discussions based around issues of the body, facilitated by Daniel Charon, MFA2 in Dance and Integrated Media.
Why does the body exist and what is its role? How are the body and the mind connected? What is the relationship of the body to space and the environment? What is the relationship of the body to technology? These and other questions will be addressed as topics of conversation. Sessions will include a guest presenter who will introduce a theme for the day followed by a moderated conversation.
The aim of these workshop discussions is to create inter-disciplinary conversation around a fundamental element of living, the body. These discussions will serve to inform and inspire a new project that will be realized next semester.

ART: Claire Fontaine is a Paris-based collective artist, founded in 2004. After lifting her name from a popular brand of school notebooks, Claire Fontaine declared herself a "readymade artist" and began to elaborate a version of neo-conceptual art that often looks like other people's work. Working in neon, video, sculpture, painting and text, her practice can be described as an ongoing interrogation of the political impotence and the crisis of singularity that seem to define contemporary art today.
CalArts, Walt Disney Modular Theater
DANCE: CalArts The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance and REDCAT present the Winter Dance Concert, an evening of dance featuring work by faculty members Laurence Blake and Andre Tyson and a restaging of Twyla Tharp’s 1971 renowned work Torelli.
Torelli, a work created by world-renowned choreographer Twyla Tharp in 1971, follows the course of a morning, starting with “down-to-earth” movement danced in silence and isolation that later develops a “rustic humor” as the movement is manipulated and set against the elegance of Guiseppi Torelli’s “Concerto in D Minor.”
