Tei Blow Laurel Atwell
Entry reimagines John Cage and Merce Cunningham's Ocean, a "dance in the round" in which the dancers, musicians, and audience members are arranged in concentric circles. Through the use of anechoic sound and ASMR-inducing audio and speech, Entry recreates the psychedelic voyages and out-of-body experiences recounted by the immersed spectators of the 1994 work, exploring the inner space conjured by Cage and Cunningham's iconic collaboration. This project is supported through the Cage Cunningham Fellowship, established in 2015 for artists who demonstrate John Cage and Merce Cunningham's commitment to artistic innovation. In recognition of Cunningham's centennial celebration in 2019, the 2018-19 Cage Cunningham Fellowship extends the award to five artists including Tei Blow. Lead support of dance programming at BAC is provided by the Rudolf Nureyev Endowment. Major support for dance programming and activities provided by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Harkness Foundation for Dance, Dance/NYC's New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
