At War With Language by Ros Salters Acosta & Maria T Allocco
This piece explores the peeling off of layers of identity to express a state of undefined form and spaces to unveil a more raw truth. Throughout the piece, layers of clothing will be peeled off - moving through stages of being weighted-down to revealing a diaphanous final layer and epicenter.
Art Riot!: Dada and Mass Schizophrenia by Jasper Patterson
Improvised audience engagement performance
I Am Not Human, But You Are by Tim Roseborough
Living Compositions by Nathalie Brilliant with Maria Dawn, Barry Despenza, Hanna Beck, Amy Munz, Aaron Freedman, Christine Lee
Nathalie and five other performers will somatically investigate each other and the sculptures present, exploring and holding dynamic body positions and shapes. Movement will be amplified creating living compositions of sound in relation to body movement. The piece thinks about how, we as bodies, shape each other, and how the things and objects that surround us define and inform gesture and movement. Conformed quotidian movement will be deconstructed, in a parallel spirit to Dadaism, through conscious somatic play and exploration of body in relation to architecture.
Untie is a metaphorical piece examining societal rules that frame behavior versus an individual's right to free expression, is a durational performance involving audience interaction to 'free' the artist from the restraints of bondage.
