And your 2009 Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist Grant Recipients are…

I’ll be covering these four artists in greater depth throughout the year, but wanting to get the word out (and swamped in last-minute errata for tomorrow’s opening night), I’ll settle for a quick copy of the rundown on each from the CDF website. Congratulations to all—looking forward to what fifteen large does for their projects.

Julia Rae Antonick

Antonick’s CDF project, Duologue, is an in-depth investigation of what it means to be a duet artist. Within Duologue, Antonick will research existing forms of duet, including Argentine Tango, Balinese LeGong, Contact Improvisation, and Ventriloquism, seeking to create new relationships between movers uncommon in contemporary dance vocabulary.

Lin Hixson

Hixson’s project, They’re Mending the Great Forest Highway, is a dance for three men with a female DJ and classically trained pianist. The piece integrates movement, the process of musical structures, and the concept of abandoned practices to construct the work.

Kevin Iega Jeff

Iega Jeff’s proposed piece is I Am Deeply Rooted, a multimedia work that highlights the lives and beliefs of individuals who have contributed to humanity through their dedication to the arts, education or human rights. The work will use the collection of true stories from leaders around the country as a primary source for artmaking material.

Atalee Judy

Judy will create Architecture of Fear: an excavation, a multimedia integrated dance work set in intimate settings with a small group of dancers. Utilizing video on various surfaces, live sound, and sensory experiences with multiple points of view, the work will take place in a diverse range of landscapes to discover the effect that space has on our bodies and psyches.
