Created and Performed by Jeanine Durning
Thursday, October 12, 7 p.m.
Dance Tech (231 Performing Arts and Humanities Building)
Created and performed by New York-based artist Jeanine Durning, inging is a choreography of the mind. It is a rush of uninterrupted and unscripted speech that tracks the velocity of thought and maps the terrain of a shared present moment. In inging, Durning applies her physical practice of “nonstopping” to the act of speaking, invoking a force that is at once internal and external, physical and metaphysical. Durning’s spoken language stutters, flows, loops, and leaps in a dance dictated by her exacting discipline. As thoughts emerge as words, and words emerge from the body, inging brings both speaker and listener to a place of paradoxical intimacy—confronting the edges of intelligibility while revealing the body and its gesture as an inevitable bridge between thought and language, at the moment of articulation.
Jeanine Durning has performed inging more than 40 times across the United States, in Europe and Canada, with recent performances in Norway and Sweden. Her work has been supported by numerous grants and residencies including The Alpert Award for Choreography, The New York Foundation for the Arts, a Movement Research Artist in Residence/NYC, a Dance in Process Residency through Gibney Dance/NYC, a Viola Farber Residency through Sarah Lawrence College, and an upcoming residency through the Rauschenberg Foundation.
Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 students and seniors, $7 UMBC students.
