Q: Did I hear that Monkeyhouse has developed TV program?
A: Yep, and we are very curious to see how this project develops. C2C : Connect 2 Choreography launches tonight at 9PM on Channel 3 in Somerville, MA. We will be producing a new episode each month. We would love to hear if you have any ideas or suggestions for future episodes.
Q: But what if I don't live in Somerville?
A: If you don't happen to live in the area or have cable, episodes will also get posted here.
Q: How did this happen?
A: After Karen appeared on Somerville Art Matters last month, she met Bill Barrell, the Tech Director for the Thursday Night Production Company at SCATV. After just a few minutes, plans began brewing to bring Monkeyhouse's blog interviews to another level. Who knew when Karen trotted off to Tiznit that she and Nicole would end up on hosting a show that delves into choreographic topics?
Q: So, what's the first episode about?
A: We were really excited about Two Road's upcoming project Dance in the Fells: 5 Pieces 5 Places. It prompted us to focus our pilot on site-specific pieces and interview Kyna Hamill and Wanda Strukus, the founders of Two Roads.
Q: Where can I go if I want to see more site-specific work or discover more choreographers who perform outside of theatrical settings?
A: Be on the lookout as we will be posting more information on the blog throughout the month of April. Oh, and feel free to give us feedback on the show but go easy on us. We jumped into this project feet first and improvising as we go. We promise that there will be fewer awkward pauses and odd facial expressions in upcoming episodes.
