DANCING THE CHAZEN

Fri January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Madison, WI. January 31 and February 1, Li Chiao-Ping Dance (LCPD) presents DANCING THE CHAZEN, the 4th and 5th events in their 2019-2020 series 7DaysDancing with site specific works utilizing the architecturally and artistically beautiful Chazen Museum of Art. Dancing the Chazen presents a traveling program of solos, duets, and group works choreographed and directed by Li Chiao-Ping in collaboration with the dancers and featuring guest artist Seán Curran, musician Julia McConahay, writer Jerri Hurlbutt, and artist Aristotle Georgiades. This interactive series of works will guide the audience through the Chazen, starting at Paige Court in the Elvehjem wing and will activate and articulate the size, weight, dimensions, properties, and materials of various spaces throughout the building through the collaboration of bodies in place and motion.

Li Chiao-Ping Dance will first perform excerpts of Dancing the Chazen on January 31st at 6:30 PM during the preview reception for the 2020 Faculty Exhibition* and will perform the full performance on February 1st at 6:00 PM.
Immediately following the Saturday performance, LCPD will hold a reception and talk-back in the Chazen lobby. These performances will be free and open to the public. *Professor Li is part of the 2020 Faculty Exhibition.

LCPD Dancers: Constance Anderson, Alfonso Cervera, Kimi Evelyn, Charli Harris, Piper Morgan Hayes, Elisa Hildner, Dianne Kotsonis, Cassie Last, Li Chiao-Ping, Elisabeth Roskopf

Choreographer Li Chiao-Ping exhibited an early interest in architecture and design as a child. She felt an intuitive connection between her physical body and the natural and built environments around her and through which she moved. Chiao-Ping wants dance, the body in motion, to occupy space at the Chazen, even if temporarily. Dancing the Chazen will activate and articulate the size, weight, dimensions, properties, and materials of various spaces throughout the building in performances during the exhibition.

This work is made possible in part by the generous support and sponsorship of Altrusa International of Madison; Fund for Children administered by the Madison Community Foundation; Dane Arts with additional funds from the Endres Mfg. Company Foundation, the Evjue Foundation Inc., charitable arm of The Capital Times, the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation Inc., and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation; Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts; University of Wisconsin-Madison Dance Department, Office of the VCRGE with funding from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, and Vilas Trustees; and LCPD’s Circle of Friends.
