60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/7/09) [Szelag/Fotheringham]

Who are you?
Music: Agnes Szelag
Dance: Julie Fotheringham

Agnes Szelagis a composer, performer, and video/audio installation artist. Her work explores the cognitive and aesthetic relationship of sound and visual media in chosen environments. In performance and composition she creates interactive schemes that ride the line between composition and improvisation. Agnes is a Course Director at Exâpression College for Digital Arts, received her MFA from Mills College, and her BS in Radio/TV/Film from Northwestern University. Who are you? is a song exploring finality. Memory and nostalgia make it difficult for relationships to really end. The childlike voice represents the innocence of when we are falling in love with someone else. This is one of the only times in our lives when we see someone else in ourselves and at that time we are infinite.

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 solos is various venues including Dance New Amsterdam, The Living Theatre, and Monkeytown. She also brings her work to unsuspecting audiences with her uninvited guerrilla improvisations in public spaces.
