    Triskelion Successes

    Collaborations in Dance Festival at Triskelion Arts

    By QUINN BATSON

    Triskelion Arts is finding its stride in its new home on the Greenpoint edge of the Williamsburg/Greenpoint border.The space works as well or better than the old venue, for the audience. The programming leans heavily to presenting new choreographers but continues to present valuable veterans as well. Its summer series, its Split Bill series and its Collaborations in Dance Festival keep dance performances available and accessible to significant numbers of choreographers and audience members that need them. Even New York can use more opportunities to make and see dance.

    Choreography by: Jules Bakshi, Mei Yamanaka, Y.A.K. Collective.

    Minishoutout aside, the 7th Annual Collaborations in Dance Festival felt fertile and fresh, and predictably unpredictable.

    Two pieces stood out for being fully formed and well conceived. Mountain by Jules Bakshi/Subtle Details Dance Theater is a strong collaboration between choreographer, visual artist and composer, and I'm Here is a collaboration both between Mei Yamanka and dance partner Misuzu Hara and between Yamanaka and Serry Park, who creates a beautifully ethereal backdrop and image projection environment that blur the lines between dream and memory, to convey the interplay between losing and living.

    Tony Bordonara and Jinju Song-Begin move smooth and smart to begin Mountain, in solos and in a beautifully matched duet. The projected backdrop video by Avery McCarthy is surprisingly crisp and clear and has the feel of an imperceptibly morphing slide show. This is a new feel. The effect is refreshing — neither overly static nor overly active and distracting. Choreography by Jules Bakshi is dancey and tasty, and adding Lulu Soni to Bordonaro and Song-Begin creates interesting texture and movement contrast. The excerpt presented here promises an ambitious debut of the entire piece in Spring 2016. Even the names of the characters — Cowboy Monk, The Climbing Girl and The Yak — are intriguing.

    Another yak in the program — the Y.A.K. Collective — is intriguing, too, mainly for an odd collaboration/contest between two women who eat/slurp fifty feet of plastic string/worm into their mouths over the course of several minutes, each chewing from one end until meeting cheek-to-cheek in the middle. It is vaguely fascinating and absurdly pointless — perhaps the point.

    I'm Here uses Triskelion's space best. Panels of translucent material precede a brightly lit space at the back of the stage, creating a sacred or dreamspace. As Yamanaka and Hara partner poetically, they sometimes break the plane between fore and back, as if they travel through time or across a metaphysical threshold.Music by Brahms and projected flashback or fantasy images by Park fuel this ambiguity beautifully.
