Douglas Paulson is an artist, arts worker, and teacher who sees each of these as pillars of his practice. He chooses to work collaboratively, intervening in public, social, and cultural spaces. Sometimes he asks: What kind of art are you for?
Ye Taik is a performing artist / avant-garde dancer, born in Rangoon, Burma. He dedicates most of his time to his practice as a collaborative choreographer, performer, curator, experimental theater artist and playwright; to discovering and developing cultural interactions through art and performance.
His work is rooted in the belief that art and performance is a language unto itself without borders or boundaries, and is a vital way to initiate peaceful intercultural communication and to develop means of conflict resolution. He is not especially attached to the concept of national identity.
He has had the pleasure of working with No-Where NOW-here, The Internationalists, Vangeline Theater, Around the World in 24 hours Festival, Performa 09, Williamsburg ArtneXus, AMDat, Center for Performance Research, Collaborations in Dance Festival, Triskelion Arts and public venues including United Nation Plaza. Most recently he performed Kate Whoriskey’s project in Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. His work is in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
He tries to define “Day” when he gets up and “Night” when he falls asleep.
