Two at Three on Sunday: Performances by Bob Eisen and Neil Goldberg

June 11, 2017 - 3:00pm

Bob Eisen

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.

Two artists passing through Milwaukee—one for a month, one for a few days—come together at Lynden for an afternoon of performance. Bob Eisen offers Resevic, a rigorously performed and constructed dance work that continues his ongoing exploration of form, movement vocabulary, and humor in dance making. It also deals with the fact that he is 70 years old. Neil Goldberg, artist-in-residence at The Suburban, Walker’s Point, offers an iteration of his improvisational project, Inhibited Bites. “Both intimate and piercing in its humor, Inhibited Bites, features Goldberg reading aloud from a collection of over 700 index cards, which contain the artist’s passing observations and ideas jotted down over the last several years.”

Sound for Resevic is by Phillip Corner, edited by Bob Eisen and Michael Caskey. 


About Bob Eisen
As a dancer, choreographer, and improviser, Bob Eisen has been active in the field of dance for going on 40 years.  He was a co-founder and longtime co-manager of Links Hall Studio, a performance/workspace in Chicago, where for 20 plus years he was a prominent member of that city's performing arts community, receiving numerous awards and grants both for his artistic work and his contribution to the community. In the year 2000 he moved to New York City.  For one full year, 2004-2005, he danced and traveled his way around the world. For the past ten years he has been living half the year in Russia, where he dances, teaches, travels, studies the language and lives; and half the year in America, where he continues to travel and perform, while still calling New York home.  During this time, the focus on his work has been on short set solo pieces and more recently a series of duets and trios.
