Hello all!
This is Marlon Barrios Solano! I am the creator and producer of this network.
I hope that you are having a creative and peaceful season!
-- has always been a free access network since its creation in 2007. I want to keep its access free and for that I need your help...
I believe that we have reached a critical mass with more than 5000 members to really leverage the potential of collective generosity of our international community to make this project sustainable... and to further develop it.
The dance-tech project, as I like to call it, comprises two websites ( and,  the dance-tech interviews (more than 400), curated video collections of complete works, online educational events (meta-academy@), app development and online/offline artistic residencies.  
All instances are geared to create and develop an exciting and inspiring international community focused on the investigation of embodied knowledge, interdisciplinary performance and emergent hybrid arts practices. 
I believe that we, as a "crowd",  can instantiate strategies to support and develop these projects. More than 5000 members may gently enable this project to keep going with a "road map" that we can envision together. My main goal is to keep its access for and add free.
Here you can read more about the dance-tech, a bit of history and its instances:
HELP US TO KEEP ACCESS FREE with a donation!
Any amount helps!
I appeal to your generosity and understanding. is an infrastructure of generosity!
Since its creation the dance-tech project has been mainly supported by my work as  many international  collaborations, partnerships, and employment with peers, friends and organizations.

This is a time to reformulate a direct commitment to the value of this work.
If it matters to you it will continue thanks to your direct contribution.

Kònic thtr presents : before the beep Center for Performance Research, New York





Friday, September 9th at 7.30pm

Saturday, September 10th at 7.30pm

Sunday, September 11th at 7.30pm

Tickets: $10.00 at the door

Online Tickets:

Workshop : konic will offer a workshop inside the perfomance space: Sunday, September 11th 2pm to 6pm


Before the Beep is a dance-performance piece inside an interactive space, and with audience participation. Kònic Thtr understands this piece as a space for encounter with local dancers and choreographers, elaborating a site specific event every time it is presented.

In 2011 three versions will be presented in Brazil, China and the US, each time with different collaborators. In this case, we will present the piece in New York with the collaboration of dancer Grace McCants

Before the Beep refers to the changes of perception in interpersonal communication mediated by new technologies, and to the spaces that this mediation generates. The piece confronts the body with these same communication technologies, and explores how these re-write the body and change our understanding of place and the idea of presence, redefining narrative, individuals and culture.

Black Moon (La Lune Noir)

The preview of "Black Moon (La Lune Noir) Act 1" starts at 12:15pm in the 2nd Floor Gallery.

The gallery exhibit, "The Anatomy of Black Moon," opens at 7:00pm in the 2nd Floor Gallery. There will be a light reception with food donated by our neighborhood partner, Jerry's Cafe.

The panel discussion, entitled "America's Black Arts Movement," begins in the theater at 7:30pm.

Black Moon (La Lune Noir) is an interdisciplinary/multimed
ia cabaret operetta based on Arnold Schoenberg’s melodrama “Pierrot Lunaire,” rewritten from an African-American male perspective and musically re-imagined through popular genres such as Afrobeat and house, deconstructing classical and contemporary forms to infuse the work with emotional power. The work is an electric experience visually and sonically.
