Dance artists Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchell and film and media artist Charles Atlas will work together on their collaborative project Tesseract including a 3D film, live proscenium performance, and installation for gallery spaces. Dancers David Rafael Botana, Kate Jewett, Cori Kresge, and Melissa Toogood will be working along side Riener and Mitchell during their Watermill residency.
Since 2010 Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener have created dance in response to complex and active spatial environments, often merging elements of fantasy, absurdity, and quiet contemplation. Their collaborative work revels in the possibilities of the highly articulated dancing body where current and historical influences and aesthetic forms are collapsed into a hybrid physical and visually charged language. Their work takes many forms, from site-specific installations, improvisational dances, traditional proscenium pieces, to highly crafted immersive experiences. Together they have been part of Lower Manhattan Cultural Councils Extended Life program, City Center Choreography Fellows, and have been artists-in-residence at EMPAC, Mount Tremper, Wellesley College, Jacobs Pillow, and Pieter LA. Their work has been presented at MoMa PS1 as part of Greater NY, The Chocolate Factory, New York Live Arts, Danspace Project, the Vail International Dance Festival, REDCAT, ICA Boston, and the O Miami Poetry Festival.
