Spoke the Hub's third GOWANATHON is a multi-faceted, arts "share-a-thon" where adults and kids can immerse themselves in an inspirational weekend of dance, theater, music, arts, crafts, cabarets, writers reading, experimental film and dance parties to help raise money for a new stairwell in the Gowanus Arts building on Douglass Street.

There's No Law is a​n improvisational performance collective drawing inspiration from Ruth Zaporah's Action Theater form. Journeying in the unknown through movement, sound, and narrative, the work scratches away the dull patina of daily life to reveal the glow of madness and pathos just below the surface.

Racoco revisits good friends Women in Motion for their 11th Salon of women choreographers, in a beautiful Nolita loft space.

We'll show some work in progress, sharing the evening with choreographers Brittany Cosby and Charlotte Blake/BCCB, Dina-Verley Christophe, Tara O'Con, Alexandra Taylor, and the lovely remi harris/dancesbyremi, who will also be dancing with Racoco, along with Rachel Cohen, Masumi Kishimoto, and special guest Yana Schnitzler from Human Kinetics Movement Arts.
 
The cycle continues!
The cycle continues!
 
Racoco has been quiet recently, rehearsing, archiving, planning--and fundraising.

Our recent collaborations with visual artist Stephanie Beck and composer Lynn Wright have used paper to explore how landscapes are continually created and reshaped, by both geological and human forces.

The process is not unlike that of a dance company - exciting outbursts of activity separated by periods of almost invisible change. That groundwork is essential for the "eruptions" to take place.

As we prepare for the next eruption, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Racoco Productions.

In the new year, we'll present the next installment of the paper production, "Manifest". We've also received funding from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to present a new work, "Slaughter on Nth Avenue," inspired by the writings of blogger and journalist Glenn Greenwald, in a rare political turn for Racoco. And Rachel has been selected to participate in "Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide".

As usual, grants and ticket sales are not enough to cover the expenses of paying dancers a living wage, working with composers and visual artists, renting rehearsal space in NYC, insurance, publicity, etc. Racoco is dedicated to paying all of its collaborators, without whom none of our crazy ideas could be realized!

Please help us continue the cycle by making a tax-deductible contribution to Racoco Productions.

Any level of contribution helps!

Thank you. You play an essential role in the art we make.

While Racoco is in the studio, creating new work, Rachel C is moonlighting with improvisation group There's No Law, with Irene Siegel and Michael Henry.

There's No Law is a​n improvisational performance collective drawing inspiration from Ruth Zaporah's Action Theater form. Journeying in the unknown through movement, sound, and narrative, the work scratches away the dull patina of daily life to reveal the glow of madness and pathos just below the surface.

From a variety of backgrounds, TNL members share a taste for flying by the seats of their pants, creating worlds on the spot with no props, no script -- no law. Their unfurling worlds careen between the funny, the poignant, the ridiculous, the pointed, and the sublime, all in the space of an embodied moment.

Come see us in December!
