Episode 20 - Jeanine Durning

5678 a podcast about dance training by Rebecka Berchtold episode 20 - Jeanine Durning We talk about dancing as a sensuous practice, gratefulness for a life in dance, desire(is fire), nonstopping, intention, having no agenda, horizontal value systems and performance as practice among other things. Jeanine Durning is a practitioner in the field of dance, performance and choreography. Her work has been described by The New Yorker as having both “the potential for philosophical revelation and theatrical disaster.” Her research often concerns the interrogation of the dancing body as a mobilizing force for change, which has the potential to shift perception of self, other, and the spaces we (collectively) inhabit. She’s interested in choreography as a ways and means to frame how our thinking and feeling come to form and action, and how our basic need for connection and communication aligns, and often misaligns, in relation to our desires. Jeanine has an ongoing practice, nonstopping, which has been the foundation for her teaching and choreographic praxis since 2010. She’s performed her “signature” solo inging (based on her nonstop speaking practice) more than 50 times across the US, in Europe and Canada. Jeanine has had the privilege to collaborate with many choreographers, including Deborah Hay since 2005, working as performer, consultant, choreographic assistant, and coach. Durning has been invited to share some of her practices all over the world through teaching, mentoring/advising, and creating choreographies. Her most recent collaboration was with Candoco Dance Company creating Last Shelter which premiered at Sadler’s Wells/London in October 2021, and is currently working on a book project in collaboration with Jenn Joy and MANCC based on Jeanine’s practice. A native New Yorker, Jeanine has been working in Stockholm the last couple of years as one of the rehearsal directors for Cullberg. music by Karin Bergman contact: rebecka.berchtold@gmail.com
