Synopsis

A one-hour performance is presented using a stitched elastic red fabric copying the figure of an hourglass. Wearing the fabric all over the body, the performer slowly and accumulatively applies pressures onto the fabric by twisting and stretching it. The action forms posses that visualize the curves and shapes of the body. The performer will be blindfolded. The body struggles in dance-like movements, interacts with an hourglass by his side while accompanied by a playlist of ASMR soundscape.

Taking its title from an exhibition of paintings shown in 2008, in which it was said that “the artist was less concerned with the gross materiality of oil paint but its theatrical ability to invoke intuitive gesture, rapid drama and infinitely subtle transitional states.”* I used  scrapers and other tools to bid paint to compose the painting. Here I use the medium of the body to explore similar ideas.  * Ross Moore

“Reuben, I think we were flirting or maybe it was just me flirting with you?  Ah well, ah well, ah well.  Ah well it’s all for the promotion of my band.  And, you know, any press is good press and any mess is good stress.  It’s all good.  No worries.  I’ve forgotten already what you even said.  Nah. It’s in the past, it’s whatever.  Oh, don’t even worry about it.

Kathleen Gonzalez2

Synopsis

Thinkers of life.

Reality needs our perceptions alive and active. 

Everything is an integral act and nothing is isolated from the flow of life.

Every act has an integral relationship with the cosmic forces, natural manifestations, and telluric energy.

The miracle of how to be born, is what universal consciousness means. 

We should not forget that it ever happened as it will certainly return.

It’s time to awaken the knowledge of our inner selves.

Synopsis

NOTHERE dives into the spaces between self and other, here and there, no here, not here. Susannah Keebler and Myfanwy Hunter provide an intimate portal into re-imagining our deeper human impulse towards co-becoming. One waits, waits to be called. Waits on the senses. We respond using sensing tools to disrupt habitual spirits with micro-macro observations and applications of the whispering voice, the full-bodied voice; the trembling body, the fluid body; the containment and the emancipation of the human form.
