6 Questions: HEATHER CHRISTIAN


The fabulous (and OBIE Award-Winning) Heather Christian has composed original music for the new Witness Relocation show, DAILY LIFE EVERLASTING, which starts performances this Thursday, April 2, 2015.  Heather took time to answer our 6 QUESTIONS - have a look:

1. How did DAILY LIFE EVERLASTING come about?

Dan [Safer] and Witness Relocation have had the awesome opportunity to work on some of Chuck Mee’s new texts since (I think) 2008. They are always a treat because Chuck has really left a lot of stage action open for re-interpretation and dance. The “plot”s (at least in the way I read them— GRAIN OF SALT WARNING) are secondary to the overall experience of how the (BEAUTIFUL) text is contained. All in all, they are plays that are extremely conducive to a dance theater approach by an ensemble based company—that’s a long way of saying, it fits like a glove. 

“Daily Life Everlasting” is the third of Chuck’s plays that we’ve had the pleasure of getting our talons into, and it is the first that was workshopped by Dan and I outside the comforts of our own company and country. A first incarnation was workshopped and shown at the Norwegian Theater Academy on a group of insanely talented Scandanavian students in Norway over Thanksgiving, and it gave us the opportunity to really throw some spaghetti at the wall before bringing it to Witness Relocation —and gave ME the time and resources to write the score. 

Chuck had written it with Monteverdi’s “Orfeo” in mind, and Dan had choreographed it with David Bowie songs in mind. I had written the score trying to take both of these things into account and bridge the gap between them/ fill in the holes those two things left thematically, so the score became a patchwork quilt of different musical approaches. Some of it is very classically structured choral music performed irreverently up against Bowie songs taken out of their glam context. Of course there are some pop songs that I CLEARLY didn’t write that show up in their original versions because part of the exhilaration of being in a Witness Relocation show is still about blurring the performative line between experimental theater and rock concert or club dancing (it cannot be overstated how fun that is to perform) but I’ve attempted to whip it all into a heartfelt and thematically appropriate soup.

2.This is your fifth show with Witness Relocation, how is it the same or different from past shows?

Two things that stick out like sore thumbs: 

1. I’m not performing in it. 
2. I’ve composed the score. 

Listen, the nature of a career in downtown theater, as I’m sure you know, has a thousand different interesting turns and flips. When I started performing with Witness Relocation, I was mostly brought on board because I was a decent dancer. I wasn’t afraid to be thrown around, and, being the daughter of a go-go dancer, I have an uncanny natural proclivity to dancing my butt off to Gwen Stephani. A decade later, I’ve managed to really focus on musical composition, and now that I’ve tasted its delicious poison, it’s all I want to do. Dan is an incredible collaborator (for a myriad of reasons but here’s one of them) because he was able to watch this metamorphoses I was going through and support it emphatically within the context of Wtiness Relocation’s work. This is the first time I’m able to only exclusively stretch my legs as a composer/MD with Witness Relocation, and it’s delightful. 

There’s a lot of fresh blood on this show (as you will see!). It’s extremely exciting because it’s proof positive that we are a collective because of our aesthetic and approach, and not just because we are a set group of individuals that work on every show together. The tools of expression and methods for generation have remained consistent with our other work, and it’s really incredible to see these new fresh faces take hold of the vocabulary we’ve been establishing for years and run with it so expertly. 

 3. Your album, Cabinet is awesome! Is the way you approach songwriting different for theater and it is for your band?

Hey thanks!! YES.
Composing for theater, for me, is all about context. I’m never really trying to do the traditional musical theater thing where I’m housing narrative and/or plot points within a song. I am always consciously trying to find different ways music can function in a scene or a dance in ways that are not traditionally put on stage in the context of a “play". Because there is so much information in a theatrical work, I am consciously leaving holes in the songs so that an audience isn’t inundated with repeating emotional information. I’m trying in different places to either provide a counterpoint, a highlighter, or a bed for the play from scene to scene— so what that means logistically is that I’m writing a complimentary color, rather than writing the whole painting.

With a record, I’m writing the whole painting. There is no visual information, there is only sonic information, so miraculously, I have the benefit of a listeners undivided ear-centric attention and, therefore, have liberty to really get detailed with lyrics and arrangement. Each song is a whole play in the sonic dimension, so I can oversaturate and not have to worry about too much stuff going on. It’s supposed to be nuanced and complicated and be a thousand different things at once, it’s a whole play!

4. Who has inspired you?

I’m most directly inspired by the individuals around me in my immediate line of sight. I’m inspired by the downtown community I have grown up with artistically for the last 10 or so years and it’s inspiring to see so many of my playmates and collaborators identify exactly what kind of art-making-creature they are at their core and, over these years, manifest it.
People I know that have been the most inspirational include the whole of Witness Relocation past and present, my band The Arbornauts, the TEAM, my odd and unflinchingly supportive family, Mac Wellman, Taylor Mac, and every individual I have the pleasure of coaching how to sing my strange songs.

My inspiration list of people that I’ve never met (my unicorn list) covers a wide range of people in different media, and I’ve had only half of my coffee so this will be incomplete and possibly meandering, but at the current moment it includes: Mavis Staples, Brendan Kennelly, Carl Sagan, David Bowie, Marina Abramovic, Arvo Part, Stevie Wonder, Hildegard von Bingen, Mary Ellen Mark, Emmylou Harris, Oliver Sacks, Nick Cave, Margaret Atwood, Robert Wison, Michael Nyman, Tom Waits, Mozart. Or at least, these are the individuals whose work I have been spending the most time with as of recent. A mixed bag. 

 5. What was the last good book/film/theater piece you read/saw and what did you love about it? 

Two genius plays:

1. I saw Andrew Schneider’s “Youarenowhere” at the Invisible Dog as part of this year’s COIL Festival and was blown away. The way he is humanizing theatrical technology so that the whole show breathes with its central character— sound and light and space are expertly and exactly crafted to flinch alongside him, his changing synapses are scored and seem both impossible and totally natural— I have just never seen a show that went so deeply inside it’s character’s psyche, and as a result, went so deeply into mine. It was thrilling to witness.

2. “The Octoroon” at Theater for a New Audience in Brooklyn. There was so much to love about this play. The cast was incredible, Mimi Lien’s set was incredible, all technical aspects were, yup, incredible— but most importantly, at its core is a really important play. Structurally, it genre-bends without alienating the audience, it’s funny, its whippersnapper smart. Thematically-- it’s a play about race in a time when a play about race is so tricky in this country, so loaded on so many fronts. It manages to be a thousand things: scathing and heart-wrenching and inappropriate and reverent and hilarious. My heart ran the gamut. And after it was done, for weeks afterward, my brain played catch-up.

6. What does working at La MaMa mean to you?

I have had a long history with LaMama. You guys were the first establishment in New York City to really take me under your wing. I was just out of college trying to figure out what kind of artist I wanted to be, or what was even possible, and LaMama singled me out and cornered me and basically said “You got something, so how do we help you fish it out?”. Working at LaMama is a homecoming. A bitter sweet one, now that Ellen [Stewart]  has passed, but nonetheless a positive one. I can tell you exactly what the dressing room smells like in the Ellen Stewart Theater with the same detail that I can tell you what the kitchen in my childhood home smells like, if that’s any indicator as to how vivid and loved LaMama is in my memory. I’ll be there tomorrow to tech the show, and will force everyone to hug me.

How to Help Victims of the East Village Explosion

from Fourth Arts Block - a Guide to Aiding your Community:

Some of the organizing efforts are still in process, but here are a few concrete ways you can chip in (from DNAinfo article):

► VOLUNTEER
LES Ready, a nonprofit based in the Lower East Side, is looking for volunteers to assist with longterm recover efforts for victims and their families. Fill out a form at LES Ready's website or email lilah@goles.org

6 Questions: Daniel Alexander Jones

Daniel Alexander Jones, an award-winning inter-disciplinary theatre artist, is currently performing An Integrator's Manual in The Club at La MaMa, March 26-29, 2015. We asked Daniel about collaborating, staying open to your audience and performing at La MaMa.

1. When did you first begin developing An Integrator's Manual and what inspired you to begin the project?
I needed to begin a process of articulation. I had to say something about this moment in my country, about the place I find myself in, and about the conversations I am having with friends, colleagues, students spurred on by the horrific series of killings of black people that have gone largely without justice. This piece takes an odd road to get at some questions I have not been able to answer well on my own and others' paradoxical relationship to this history - and our places in it. An Integrator's Manual is very much that beginning, breaking the skin and exposing those questions and taking the first steps at sounding them out.

2. How does creating a performance that speaks to ongoing problems of integration in the US change your relationship to the audience?
My relationship to audience is a constant variable. By this, I mean, I know, always, that I will never know who shows up to be the audience on a particular night, or for a particular run. Much of my work is in the tradition of the theatrical jazz aesthetic; I approach each performance knowing that I must seek clarity of expression and direct connection with whoever comes to be part of the experience, whether the subject matter is charged or not.

3. The show was been described as 'part pop-quiz.' Can you tell us anything more about this element of the piece?
As this is the first sharing of this new work, and we will be continuing to develop it over the next year, I am eager to know of folks' experience of the work. It is grounded in the personal, as a way to get at relationship to the larger idea and experience of integration. I'm hopeful that it will invite others to consider the minute, personal, intimate ways the questions raised have operated in their own experience of this subject, from whatever vantage point or vantage points they have held.

4. How would you describe the nature of your collaboration with Will Davis? Are there specific ways you challenge each other?
Will Davis amplifies the light in others and exerts some kind of gravitational pull - the best ideas rise up around him. I feel utterly safe to try anything, whether is falls or flies. I know that Will intimately understands the process of building a living, breathing piece of art and is concerned with authenticity, clarity and presence. I think we both challenge one another to go to the heart of the matter. I am profoundly grateful to be in collaboration with this brilliant artist.

5. When did you know that you wanted a career in the arts?
I knew from a very early age. Making art was, and still is, the state of being where I feel the most alive and purposeful. I have always wanted to help alleviate suffering; turns out the way I was led to do so is through making and sharing art, which I hope feeds others' imaginations and senses of agency in some small but measurable way.

6. What does working at La MaMa mean to you?
To step into the house that Ellen Stewart built is a watershed. To be able to take these first public steps at the invitation of Mia Yoo and Nicky Paraiso is evidence that there are still spaces dedicated to artists who want, and need, to explore.

Found, Bound, Re-bound: A Creative Donating Workshop
hosted by Ged Merino

Found materials artist, Ged Merino, has an incredible talent for reusing, repurposing, and recycling materials into amazing art objects. At this year's Load OUT!, the artist will host a special public art making project in which anyone can participate.  For Found, Bound, Re-bound, donated shoes take center stage. Ged Merino will engage the public in making a plethora of shoe sculptures, making art from what would otherwise be waste. We are asking everyone to participate and bring their old shoes to donate so that together, we can create unique sculptures...with a purpose.

After the exhibition, the bound shoes will be shipped to the Philippines, where they will be displayed at the Drawing Room Gallery in Manila. The shoe-sculptures will then be donated to victims of Typhoon Haiyan to be unbound and worn again, giving the shoes a second, meaningful life.

Admission to the event is $5 for the general public and free for artists. Bring a pair of shoes to be donated and get in FREE!
