More about Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchell...
Listed in Dance Magazine's 25 to watch for 2013, Mitchell and Riener are artists who work collaboratively and separately on varied performance projects, including site-specific installations, improvisational dances, traditional proscenium pieces and highly crafted immersive experiences. Mitchell and Riener began working together on dance projects in 2009. They are interested in crafting new vocabulary for dance performance, and new ways for experiencing dance research. They are both drawn to space as an agent of performance, and have been particularly interested in how to create dance in response to complex and active spatial environments. Their first site-specific dance-poetry project NOX, with text by Anne Carson, takes into account its surroundings as a vehicle for communicating particular metaphorical or sense-based aspects of dance and performance. It has been shown in many places from 2009-2013, a barn, a church, an old furniture factory, a high glass-walled museum gallery, and a proscenium theatre. NOX was nominated for New York Dance and Performing Awards in 3 categories (Mitchell-emerging choreographer, Riener-performance, outstanding production of 2012).
