Exploring New Terrain: Introduction to Butoh Practice- Body as Unknown Landscape

Exploring New Terrain: Introduction to Butoh Practice- Body as Unknown Landscape

This Spring, from January through May, VDA is partnering with two Vermont dance studios: "Open Door Integrative Wellness" in White River Junction and "SoBo Studio" in Brattleboro to bring exciting weekend workshops to the Vermont dance community! We are calling the series "Exploring New Terrain..." happening once per month, introducing new ways of dancing, and unique styles of dance practices.

By studying a series of breath, somatic and movement practices inspired by butoh, the class will aim to liberate ourselves from pre-fixed images of our bodies and search for alternate and original ways of approaching them. This class is open to anyone who is interested in investigating the relationship between internal landscape and physical movement forms.

Mina Nishimura, from Tokyo, was introduced to butoh and improvisational dance through Kota Yamazaki. After graduating Ochanomizu University with BA in Performing Arts in Tokyo, Nishimura immigrated to NYC to study at Merce Cunningham Studio. Since then she has been working with groundbreaking dance artists as performer, in most years, such as John Jasperse, Dean Moss, Neil Greenburg, Vicky Shick and Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener. She has also collaborated with SIA on Saturday Night Live, and was featured in PRADA film/Women’s Tales directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall in recent years. Her own choreographic works have been commissioned by NYU Skirball Center, Danspace Project, Gibney Dance, Mount Tremper Arts Center, UC Davis among other dance organizations. She was the danceweb scholar at Impulse Tanz (Vienna), the research fellow at DunaPart (Budapest), and the Artist-in-Residence at Camargo Foundation (France), and Movement Research (NYC). She has been teaching as Faculty, at Sarah Lawrence College, UC Davis, Ferris University (Japan) and Movement Research, and is a current MFA Teaching Fellow at Bennington College. Nishimura is a recipient of Best Performance of 2018 in Dance Magazine, and Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award 2019 in United States.

Desert One

Desert One

In April 1980, the US government launched Operation Eagle Claw, their response to the hostage crisis that was happening in Iran at that time. Helmed by then-president Jimmy Carter, the Delta Force tried to rescue the 52 hostages that were detained in the U.S. Embassy and Foreign Ministry buildings in Tehran. The documentary film Desert One explores the different aspects of this failed mission through interviews with the hostages, soldiers, commanders, and even President Carter. Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple.

PoemTown St. Johnsbury

PoemTown St. Johnsbury

Catamount Arts, the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, and the St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce are delighted to announce events for PoemTown St. Johnsbury, a celebration of National Poetry month in April. Affiliated with PoemCity in Montpelier, PoemTown St. Johnsbury papers shop windows and storefronts with poems, hosts readings and remembrances, and decorates the town with yellow haiku circles.

This year’s programming includes two Zoom events hosted by the Athenaeum: an Open Mic poetry reading on Friday, April 16, at 6pm, and a Robert Frost Remembrance on Sunday, April 25th, at 4pm. Members of the public are also encouraged to contribute haiku circles throughout the month of April for inclusion in PoemTown St. Johnsbury decorations.

The Open Mic Zoom event on Friday, April 16, invites readers of all ages to share a poem, theirs or someone else’s, or attend as a spectator. Those wishing to read a poem must register online in advance to secure a slot in the program. Readers are not required to read their own work. They may read an original poem of their own writing, or they may read a selection from a favorite poet.

Patrons do not have to read a poem to attend the Open Mic Zoom event. All are welcome to attend as spectators to enjoy an evening of poetry and support local poets and poetry fans. Spectators and readers alike must register in advance, however, at the Athenaeum’s web site in order to get the link to this online event.

The Robert Frost Remembrance event, also on Zoom, will celebrate the poetry and legacy of the famed long-time Vermont resident and poet laureate. This event is organized by the Northeast Storytellers and hosted by the Athenaeum. To participate in this event by presenting or merely attending, please register in advance at the Athenaeum web site.

Selections of poetry to be pasted on shop windows and storefronts have already been collected, but it’s not too late to contribute haikus to decorate downtown. All are welcome through the entire month of April to pick up a yellow paper circle at Cosmic Cup Café on Eastern Avenue or on Railroad Street at Boxcar & Caboose or Moose River Lake & Lodge. Write a haiku in black ink on your circle, and then drop it off anytime this month in the bin on the front steps of Catamount Arts.

After last year’s events were canceled due to the pandemic, PoemTown St. Johnsbury 2021 feels particularly poignant, notes Catamount Arts Education Director Anne Campbell. “We’re so excited to bring poetry back,” she says. Campbell encourages everyone to take a stroll through downtown St. Johnsbury this month and enjoy some poetry. With over 100 submissions and counting, maybe you’ll spot contributions from friends, neighbors, and classmates you’ve missed this past year.

Maɬni — Towards The Ocean, Towards The Shore

Maɬni — Towards The Ocean, Towards The Shore

Directed by Sky Hopinka (2020).
Maɬni (pronounced moth-nee), is a lush, poetic contemplation on the cycle of afterlife, rebirth, and death based on Chinookan cosmology from the Pacific Northwest. Probing questions about humanity’s place on earth and other worlds, Sky Hopkina’s new visionary film will have audiences thinking (and dreaming) about it long after. Narrated in both Chinuk Wawa and English, maɬni expands the viewer’s sense of place to both language and legacy. Their stories take a departure from the Chinookan people’s circular origin-of-death myth, probing questions about humanity’s place both on earth and in other worlds.

"Rapturous. Feels like a richly woven ghost story."— Hyperallergic


“Stunning. Hopinka’s use of color in Malni is nothing short of astonishing. One of the most awe-inspiring films I saw.” -Rogerebert.com

Pet Project: Brandon Artists Guild All-Member, All-Media Exhibit

Pet Project: Brandon Artists Guild All-Member, All-Media Exhibit

The Brandon Artists Guild (BAG) announces its “Pet Project” – an animal-themed exhibit that celebrates all creatures great and small. The exhibit runs from March 5 through May 2. There will be a free closing reception on Friday April 23 from 5PM to 7PM.

The all-media, all-member show includes works in paint, fiber, glass, ceramics, collage, wood and more.

“We’re calling it ‘Pet Project’ because it’s truly a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts,” says dog lover and illustrator Ashley Wolff. “Plus, it’s about pets, of course. With so many people stuck at home these days, we’re spending more time with our animal companions and getting to know them better. Pets help keep us calm in these strange times.”

Because of COVID concerns, the BAG will be holding a closing reception in late April, rather than an opening reception in March.
The BAG, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM, Sundays from 10AM to 4PM. Information: 802 247-4956.

Barely Touching

Barely Touching

Barely Touching
A collaborative exhibition by Susan Calza and Kelly Holt
On view by appointment through May 31, 2021

The Susan Calza Gallery
138 Main Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602




Barely Touching was conceived with basic premise, that this work would reflect the Artists’ personal reactions to the societal challenges erupting during the year 2020. The video installation is the main component. Both Artists’ videos counterbalance each other. They address a deep sense of longing and the tension between connection and disconnection in relationship, ie. human, environmental and societal. The work explores the theme of connection, as well the racial, social and political landscape in the United States in the past year,...the murder of George Floyd, immigration crises and personal reflections. Already, since the exhibition’s beginnings at Axel’s Gallery in Waterbury, Vermont in February and March 2021 the work has evolved in unexpected ways.

Of her sculptures included in the exhibition, Calza explains “My sculptures are multilayered and specifically address issues of race.I was born during the Baby Boomer era as are many of our elected officials in DC. I’m investigating my relationship to race through the lens of my upbringing in the U.S.,specifically using toys, in this case dolls produced during that time period.”

Holt’s mixed media photographic work depicts figures passing, empty chairs still holding the energies of those that came before. The mood is both mysterious and hopeful.

Barely Touching will continue as an ongoing collaborative community project. Calza and Holt will invite people to the Gallery, record their stories and weave something together that tells a collective experience. The work will result in a new video installation continuing the non-linear conversation of our global community.

This exhibition is in collaboration with the statewide initiative of the Vermont Curators Group 2020 Vision - Reflecting on a World-Changing Year.

The Susan Calza Gallery is open by appointment by emailing SusanCalza@gmail.com. The Gallery is in full compliance with Vermont’s Covid-19 guidelines. Social distancing and facial coverings are required.

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

This exhibit can be viewed on the Sheldon Museum's website, https://www.henrysheldonmuseum.org/faces-of-addison-county
It will be available for in-person viewing at the Sheldon Museum starting the week of July 13 through September 11, 2021

The Sheldon Museum is pleased to honor Trent Campbell in this retrospective exhibit. Campbell, a longtime resident of Middlebury, learned photography at his grandfather’s knee in his home state of Minnesota. He became the Addison County Independent photographer in 1998 where he took award-winning photos around the county for more than 20 years. Campbell spent many hours on assignment and even more wandering the back roads of the county, meeting and getting to know countless residents. He became a fixture at events and was an expected sight with his trademark camera and warm smile. Campbell’s career was interrupted in 2018 when he survived the first of two strokes. He continues his recovery but still has his unique eye. He may be shooting less but still loves the county and the people in it.

Campbell said, “I feel so embraced and supported by the people of Addison County after serving them through my work that I want to give back to them and celebrate them with this collection of photographs.” Read more about Campbell in an article that appeared in the Addison County Independent on April 1, 2021.

When Campbell started at the paper he shot on Tri-X film using Nikon 35 mm SLRs. He loaded and developed his own film and then scanned the negatives to make prints for the paper. Campbell switched to digital cameras in 2001, and all the prints on exhibit here are from images captured with either a Nikon D1H or a Nikon D300.
