PRACTICES

as part of Hi, Solo #9 at Pieter Performance Space, Los Angeles

November 9, 8:30pm & 10pm 

3-minute practices of pelvis and that which dangles below and above it. movement comes through the sound of a singular drone, hand-made by Jamie Green. the balloon-drone is filled with 4 and 1/2 breaths of air, which is equal to three minutes of body performing.

 

*Hi, Solo is a bi-annual performance, currently being curated by Alexsa Durrans and Miles Brenninkmeijer. #9 is an evening of 9, three-minute solos.*

EEPHUS PITCH

in-Residency at PAM, May 2019

Performances: May 31 & June 1. 8pm at PAM, Los Angeles

In the finite and infinite cavities of performance, in the dualities engendered there, Alana plays baseball. With destiny & devotion, genius & myth, theater & drama, grass & sky, she travels infield to outfield and all across the bases. As she grows near and far to the positions of the game, its passing, and to time itself, she becomes the proximal site of birth...

 

In past time, Alana plays our green-est pastime. Doing Forever in the outfield, we must wait for the game to end.

 

*this is a performance of dance, words, sounds, being, and objects in and of the space. this performance is being developed over a month-long residency at PAM. this performance is also of Jamie Green with organ and bells*

NEMETON at Human Resources

Los Angeles, May 2019

Nemeton is a durational choreography which makes a thicket of words, positions, and breath. Nine bodies listen and voice words spoken by nine other bodies— artists no longer living— experiencing what language can make present, and what it shrouds.

by Jennie MaryTai Liu with Alana Reibstein. performed by Stacy Dawson Stearns, Jessica Emmanuel, Cristina Fernandez, Maria Maea, Coral Lobera, Jasmine Orpilla, Alana Reibstein, Gabriella Rhodeen, and Laura Stinger
