The Plastic Practitioner | Boring Angel

The April 2016 BCA Run of the Mills featured Boring Angel: The Plastic Practitioner, a multidisciplinary dance-based performance by a group of artists spanning Maine, New York and Massachusetts.

Through dance, visual design, text and sound, Boring Angel presents a shifting visual and sonic landscape where events, bodies and minds emerge and disappear in a non-hierarchical space of multiplicity and radical empathy. The work proposes a reflection of how humans perform themselves and asks us to reconsider how we interface, consume and coexist with the human and non-human world around and inside us.  Performance by choreographers/performers Asher Woodworth (Portland, ME) and Hana van der Kolk (Troy, NY), featuring technical design by Ethan Kiermaier (Northampton, MA) and original costumes by Laura Andrighetti (Troy, NY).

Experiential Boredom

Part of the Boston Center for the Arts Run of the Mills program
In partnership with the New Movement Collaborative

How we think shapes how we move, how we dance shapes how we think. Paying attention to the relationship between dancing and thinking might positively destabilize our interactions with ourselves, each other, and the material world around us. Asher Woodworth and Hana van der Kolk facilitate an experimental dance workshop that explores just that.

Informed in their approach by such dance innovators as Min Tanaka and Deborah Hay, and by a shared dedication to meditation, improvisational dance practices, community-building, and feminist thought and action, this workshop is open to movers of all types.

Saturday, April 2 | 4–6 pm
