"Presented in Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2013, Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener bring personal and visceral performance to audiences, sharing both their ideas and bodies as creators and dance performers. Mitchell and Riener, both Bessie award winners and veteran Merce Cunningham dancers, have been collaborating since 2009; their first major collaboration last year being the acclaimed piece, Nox, choreographed by Mitchell with Riener and executed with writer, Anne Carson. The work reflected on impermanence, death and mourning, tinged with hope like searching for light in darkness. Some said this piece could be seen as an honored farewell to their Cunningham roots as they both continued forward evolving their own artistic aesthetics." [from accompanying article on Imagista.com]
