Big Room, New Haven CT
Ever Antler is an improvisatory collective made up of dance artists Rachel Bernsen and Melanie Maar, cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum and percussionist/vocalist Abraham Gomez-Delgado. In Ever Antler we are all equal partners in a shared endeavor. We investigate principles of roles, craft, pleasure, story, risk and meaning in performance, practicing spontaneous action as a way to experience and share composition and choreography live.
The BIG ROOM was founded by dance artist Rachel Bernsen in 2010. It is a studio and performance space that offers a low-tech platform for interdisciplinary collaboration, experimentation and research in dance and performance. It has quickly become known as a “showcase for groundbreakers” (New Haven Advocate), while the Take Your Time series has been described as part of what’s “keeping dance vibrant year round in New Haven” (New Haven Register).
