Choreographer and dance artist Kimberly Fulmer Mullins will perform her solo piece Translations, inspired by Trisha Brown’s iconic solo Watermotor and her concept of “throwing and catching” to generate material from improvisation, with weight and momentum. Kimberly, hailing from Dallas, TX, is currently an MFA candidate and Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Modern Dance program at the University of Utah. She is also a member of the Trisha Brown Dance Company. Since joining the company, she has performed a wide range of repertory spanning Trisha Brown’s 40-year choreographic history nationally and internationally. The repertory she has performed includes Set and Reset (1985), Glacial Decoy (1979), Foray Foret (1990), Astral Converted (1991), Accumulation (1972), and many more.
Roxanne Grey will screen two films, "The Fall" and "No Diving", which explore falling within two different contexts, pushing back against society’s obsession with verticality and the equation of falling as a failure. Choosing to fall holds possibilities rather than limitations. Roxanne is a Latina, Salt Lake City-based independent choreographer, performer, and dance filmmaker. She is a current Modern Dance MFA Candidate and Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Utah. Gray is also the Founder, Director, and Curator of the nonprofit 801 Salon, a monthly multidisciplinary arts and performance series in Salt Lake City.
Andy Positive, the poet laureate of Neenah, Wisconsin, will bring us poetry and more! Though his poetry—which addresses a wide range of subject matter including mother; his dead cat, Rick; magic; voting; and stonefruit— has garnered a cult following, he is probably best known for his work in various musical acts including Droope (available at https://activitiesarchive.com/droope-at-home-in-neenah-1982-1987, and https://activitiesarchive.com/milwaukee-droope-the-basement-session-on-locust-1994-1996-2003), and Andy Positive and His Blue Riders. The Riders's last performance was at the Wood Tick Inn (Cuyuna, MN) and received 5 stars from the tavern owner, Deb Seamans.
This program is modeled after 12 Minutes Max, a performance laboratory originated by On the Boards in Seattle.
