Lucie Vítková is a composer, improviser and performer (accordion, hichiriki, voice, synth and tap dance) from the Czech Republic. Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while in her improvisation practice she explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. In her recent work, she is interested in the musical legacy of Morse Code and the social-political aspects of music in relation to everyday life. She has been nominated on 2017 Herb Alpert Awards in Arts in Music and she has put together two ensembles – NYC Constellation Ensemble (focused on musical behavior) and newly OPERA ensemble (for singing instrumentalists). As an accordion player, she collaborated with New York based TAK Ensemble, S.E.M. ensemble, Du.0, Argento Ensemble and Ghost Ensemble.

Between Walled Rooms

Between Walled Rooms is a series of freeform poetries in response to performances by female-identifying choreographers. The poems serve as a container for prolonged questioning and consideration against the ephemerality of live performance, asking the central question: How can poetry reflect the choreographic consciousness? 

by Tara Sheena

Tara Sheena is originally from Detroit, Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in Dance and BA in English. She has collaborated on recent performance work with Ivy Baldwin, Stormy Budwig, Kirsten Schnittker, and Nadia Tykulsker. She centers anti-racist organizing and arts advocacy in her work with Movement Research, Yanira Castro/a canary torsi, The People Movers, and The Worker Institute at Cornell University.
