Thunder is a new work for singing bodies by Choreographer/Composer Tatyana Tenenbaum in collaboration with performers Emily Moore and Laurel Snyder. Tenenbaum's work explores the phenomenal space of the singing body from interwoven perspectives of dance, performance, theater and music. Using the voice as the central point of deconstruction, her work forms coarse tapestries of sound, movement, force and presence. Like the act of nature both heard and felt, Thunder investigates the singing body as an object of reverberance and sensation, whose dual phenomena collide in an instance of meaning.
Tatyana Tenenbaum is a choreographer and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. Her original work has been commissioned and presented by The Chocolate Factory Theater, Temple University, Dance Theater Workshop Fresh Tracks, Center for Performance Research, Roulette Intermedium, Danspace Project’s Draftwork series, Panopoly Performance Laboratory, The Watermill Center and AUNTS, among others. She has been an artist-in-residence at Pieter PASD (LA), The Field (NYC) and Espacio Ambimental (Bogotá, Colombia). In addition to creating work, she has facilitated ongoing classes in Embodied Vocal Practice at various spaces in New York City, as well as at Earthdance (Plainfield, MA) and Temple University (Philadelphia) as the recipient of the Reflection: Response Choreographic Commission 2014. She received dual degrees from Oberlin College & Conservatory of Music.
