Since 2010 Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener have created dance in response to complex and active spatial environments, often merging elements of fantasy, absurdity, and quiet contemplation. Their collaborative work revels in the possibilities of the highly articulated dancing body where current and historical influences and aesthetic forms are collapsed into a hybrid physical and visually charged language. Their work takes many forms, from site-specific installations, improvisational dances, traditional proscenium pieces, to highly crafted immersive experiences. After working together in the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Mitchell and Riener began collaborating on dance projects at MoMa PS1, The Chocolate Factory, New York Live Arts, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Danspace Project, REDCAT, and ICA Boston that continually push at the unraveling boundaries of dance research. They are both drawn to space as an agent of performance and have been particularly interested in creating dance in response to complex and active spatial environments.
