ENTERTAINMENT THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,1W Joint Forces explores unique dance form The Joint Forces Dance Company starring Alito Alessi and Karen Nelson will make an appearance at Mendocino College in a performance and workshop Friday, Oct. 2, and Saturday, Oct. 3. The Joint Forces dance company is noted for developing a distinct profile and definite texture of movement through integrating Contact Improvisation into their choreography. Alessi and Nelson have been making dances together since 1980, and this is a repeat performance in Mendocino County. Contact Improvisation explores states of balance, falling, rolling, and momentum. "There is always movement," says Alessi. "And so you sense that movement, and you develop it." The pressure of a shin against a sitting dancer's shoulder causes him to whirl into a spin, then topple over; that toppling pulls his partner into a fast backwards roll, which then unfurls to nudge them both to their knees. New shapes arise through the sculpting tug of momentum and gravity. And with each new shape, the dancers pivot around a single point of contact. "I like to think that the audience will see the fun and excitement in moving in different ways," Alessi explains. "When they leave the performance they'll try to experiment a little with their own bodies." In a 1982 review, dance critic Janice Ross of the Oakland Tribune remarked of Joint Forces, "Without fanfare or stylistic politics, these dancers present the buoyant, springy vocabulary of Contact Improvisation pushed into a 1980s concern with structure, order and progression." Sponsored by the Community Services office, the- pance Co. will perform Friday evening, Oct. 2, at 8 p.m. at the Mendocino College Theatre. The team will follow Friday's performance with a special workshop Saturday, Oct. 3, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Dance Studio on the college campus. Those who are intrigued by the charm of this pair on the stage will be glad to know the workshop is for the inexperienced, as well as the experienced. Formal dance training is not needed because contact improvisation is based on natural movements. Joint Forces has taught the form to the elderly and to people with back injuries or physical handicaps. Enrollment is encouraged for anyone between 13 and 60. There are still openings for the workshop Saturday, although the class will be limited to 25. Cost of the workshop will be $30. Those who wish to enroll should contact the Community Services office at the college, 468-3063. Cliff Cola Allto Alessi and Karen Nelson Integrate contact Improvisation Into their choreography. Renaissance shows oils by Reichert The Renaissance Gallery opens a new showing of local landscapes by Potter Valley artist Reichert on Saturday, Sept 26.

Reichert studied art at San lose State University and received a degree in graphic design in 1975. Since that time, he has worked as an art director, photographer and graphic designer. Although he paints all subjects, he enjoys landscapes best His work captures the rare beauty of dusk in the valley with rich patterns of foliage against colorful fields and violet-tinged hills. Reichert has been painting in oil for several years. He has studied most recently with Mendocino artists Olaf Palm and E. John Robinson. Refreshments will be served in the gallery for visitors from 2-5 p.m. Visitors also are invited to wander through the art show featuring 40 area artists that will be set up along Seminary Avenue's park strip.
