MIXOLOGY FESTIVAL: Jarryd Lowder & Julie Fotheringham

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 @ 8:30 pm

“Stress Positions” is the latest in a series of performances using dance/movement (by Julie Fotheringham) integrated with video and music/sound (by Jarryd Lowder). Julie’s performance is amplified by technology, and humanized by her flesh experiencing pain, pleasure, tension, relief, numbness, exhaustion; the raw elements of physical experience. Jarryd combines live camera imagery and live instrumentation using stringed instruments, percussive instruments and found objects, played in conventional and unconventional ways.

Jarryd Lowder is an artist working with electronic audiovisual media (integrating forms such as video, sound and music) primarily for live performance. His performances and other works have been presented in the US and countries such as Spain, France, Japan, Finland, Korea and the Netherlands. At the School of Visual Arts MFA Computer Art department, he works as an instructor of studio classes in Video and Sound/Music. For more information – http://www.jarrydlowder.com/

Julie Fotheringham performed as a dancer/acrobat in Cirque du Soleil before coming to New York to make her own work. Here she has shown her contemporary dance/performance art pieces in various venues including Dance New Amsterdam, Galapagos Art Space, and Monkeytown. She also brings her work to unsuspecting audiences with her uninvited guerrilla improvisations. To view video of these performances, or for more info, go to http://www.juliefotheringham.org/
