60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/8/09) [Maters/Brandenburg]

Double Future Container Love Music
Music: John Maters
Dance: Colette Brandenburg

Born in Nijmegen, Netherlands, John Maters attended the Royal Academy of Arts in Hertogenbosch. His group presentations include: Vegetable Man, curated by Dario Antonetti; Soundlab V, Cologne; Gallery Aferro, Newark; Pendu Gallery, New York; Open Source Art Champaign, Illinois. In Double Future Container Love Music he continues exploring the possibilities of recycling and re-transformation, rethinking a work by considering it in relationship to different contexts. This piece infiltrates ordinary conditions with the mixed emotions of homesickness and consolation, which are disturbed by the undetermined sounds of a building-ground, where past and future are present.

Colette Brandenburg currently choreographs, performs, and teaches in LA, although she misses living in Brooklyn immensely. Colette trained with Evelyn Kreason and completed the Independent Study Program at the Alvin Ailey School. She has been a member of Michigan Ballet Theater, Midwest Dance Theater, and currently performs with Saba Dance in LA. She has been a guest faculty member at Valley College as well. She wants to thank all of her dancers past and current for letting her experiment her choreography on them.
Dancers: Colette Brandenburg, Victoria Brown, Eileen Crowe, Dana Vultaggio, and Shannon Zimmerman
