Four OtB Alumni team up at MoMA Aug 22, 2012

Some sweet day (Oct 15 - Nov 4 2012) is a three-week program of dance performances in the Museum's Marron Atrium by contemporary choreographers. The series, organized by Ralph Lemon, pairs six internationally renowned choreographers engaged in an intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue about each other's work, demonstrates how the current state of dance can engage with a variety of subjects such as aesthetics, gender, race, and history.

Dancing Something Undanceable Nov 19, 2010

Ralph Lemon’s new work, HOW CAN YOU STAY IN THE HOUSE ALL DAY AND NOT GO ANYWHERE? is an example of why I love live theater. Or live dance. Or live theatrical dance. His work is difficult to categorize which makes me enjoy it even more. He does not take anything for granted and is forever questioning and exploring.

Making Sense Of What I Saw Last Night Nov 19, 2010

I highly recommend reading the program notes and the writings provided by Ralph Lemon before watching the piece. It helps to provide context and abstractly/subconsciously make sense of the autobiographical puzzle. I view the work as an individual's journey to understand and be at peace with love and nothingness through the act of creation.  How Can You Stay In The House All Day And Not Go Anywhere is a peacemaking effort by Ralph Lemon with knowledge and 'love, and its ghosts;' it is a search for grace, a place that Ralph states as 'the suspension... of contemplation.'
