Nancy Havlik’s Dance Performance Group + Barbiero/Hilmy/Rouzer
A dance/theatre exploration of everyday gesture, story & memory, this performance unites Dance Performance Group musicians Daniel Barbiero (double bass) and Steve Hilmy (electronics) with DPG alumnus Gary Rouzer (cello/amplified textures) to create a live, organic electroacoustic soundtrack interacting with the movements of DPG’s performers.

Nancy Havlik has directed and choreographed for the past 25 years. She formed Dance Performance Group (a non profit 501c3 corporation) in 1989 as a vehicle to explore her own choreographic ideas with a small group of dancers and musicians. Through the Company her choreography has been performed extensively in the Washington, DC area at venues including Dance Place, Joy of Motion, Montgomery College, Jewish Community Center, Joe’s Movement Emporium, Mt. Vernon College and the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Her work has been shown in New York City at Joyce Soho, WAX and the Construction Company and in Eastern Europe (Czech Republic and Slovakia). She has directed site work performances all over the Washington, DC area and recently has presented performances at Flashpoint Meade Theater and at Woolly Mammoth Melton Rehearsal Hall. Nancy teaches creative movement and intergenerational workshops for older adults through Arts for the Aging (AFTA). Her AFTA program “Moving Art” has received a 2011 Met Life grant to present a series of workshops for older adults in collaboration with Donna McKay combing visual art and creative movement. Nancy also directs Quicksilver, an improvisational performance company of dancers over 60 years of age under the auspices of AFTA.

SAFE FAST & EFFECTIVE
brings together Dave Vosh (Safe), Keith Sinzinger (Fast Forty) and Chris Videll (Tag Cloud). Their off-label prescription combines doses of live sampling with found sounds, custom electronics, offbeat percussion and thrift store finds.
Dave Vosh has been experimenting with electronic music since the 1970s and live performance since 2005 in various solo, duo and trio projects involving modular synthesizers and other devices. He was recently a featured performer in St. Louis at a show sponsored by the HEARding Cats Collective at Floating Labs, where he also displayed his visual electronic manipulations. www.youtube.com/davevosh and www.soundcloud.com/davevosh
Keith Sinzinger builds, modifies and plays electronic and percussion instruments. After a long hiatus, he was drawn back into live performance by the inspiration of the rave scene. A child of the ’60s and a lifelong newsman, he aims to integrate contemporary issues and conflict into music. Previous collaborations include No Serviceable Parts and Liquid Friction Assemblage.

Chris Videll plays electroacoustic drone under the name Tag Cloud, working with analog electronics, cheap keyboards, fx, metal percussion, etc. Look for the release "Named Entities" on Zeromoon in 2012. In addition to SFE he has collaborated with Dan Barbiero and Gary Rouzer and participated in the Front & Follow label's remix project "14 Versions of the Same ep". A follow up with BLK w/Bear is also coming in 2012.
SFE rehearses and records at District of Chaos Studios, NE WDC. Their composition "Off-Label Prescription" was included on the Sonic Circuits compilation "http://soundcloud.com/safe-fast
