Coming up in January:

Performance: Like me more like me by Thomas Hauert & Scott Heron. Sunday, January 13, 2013. 3-4pm. EMMA Lab at ACCAD. In Like me more like me, Brussels-based Swiss Thomas Hauert collaborates with Scott Heron, a familiar face from the New York avant-garde scene. Although they create very different work – Thomas is recognized for his improvisation-based choreographic language while Scott makes singular performances layered with camp – they share a mistrust of social and aesthetic conventions, as well as a love of intense and innocent physicality. Having both started dancing as kids in their family living room, they know how a private world can develop out of, or outside of, surrounding culture. From this point of view, they challenge the oppositions between oneness and ‘twoness’, mind and body, reason and emotion, margin and centre.

Mitchell Rose: Short Films (1999 – 2012) presented by The Wexner Center. Thursday, January 17, 2013; 7pm at Wexner Film/Video Theater.  Rose mines everyday life for the humorous and absurd in this award-winning series of films inspired by his choreography and performance art background. The program highlights Rose’s celebrated comedic work, including Elevator World (1999), a computer-animated essay on the politics of elevator riding, Modern Daydreams (2001), an exploration of the human connection with inanimate objects, and Contact (2012), a love letter to the respite of human interaction.
