Insistence/Persistence with Jesse Zaritt
“IF YOU USED TO PAINT, PAINT AGAIN… THEN PLEASE ENCOURAGE OTHERS! IF YOU USED TO WRITE, WRITE AGAIN… THEN PLEASE ENCOURAGE OTHERS! THE POTENTIAL MAGIC OF THIS WORLD REQUIRES OUR PARTICIPATION!” CAConrad, TRIPLE JUPITER HUMANIFESTO: A (Soma)tic Poetry Entrance, http://somaticpoetryexercises.blogspot.com/
This experimental workshop insists on the incessant. Organized as a series of durational practice loops of dancing and drawing, Insistence/Persistence invites participants to create materials and exchange practices for immediate use. Focusing on unsolicited performance and the limits of the solo, the session will explore encounters with entities/other-beings (family, neighbors, animals, plants), objects, and environments. Spectacularly fleeting events, or micro-theaters, will be designed and inhabited.
Jesse Zaritt is a Brooklyn-based dance artist. He is an Associate Professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA, having previously been the inaugural 2014–2016 Research Fellow in the University’s School of Dance. He has also taught at Bard College, Hollins University, Pomona College, and the American Dance Festival. Zaritt has performed his solo work in Taiwan, Uruguay, Russia, Korea, Germany, New York, Japan, Mexico, Israel, and throughout the United States.
