Collaboration Fostered by Lisa Walcott and Heather Cornell
Drawing inspiration from words chosen out of Richard Serra’s Verblist (1967-68), each group of sculptors and dancers have come together to create a unique combination of performance and visual art. Materially diverse, each of these projects encompass an understanding of rhythm, connecting it to specific verbs and the idea of cycles. Breaking and manipulating forms and rhythm, the concept of interaction is brought in through dancer and viewer participation in a more intimate viewing of the pieces.
From armature to standalone pieces to interactive time-based sculpture, each of the groups have produced a distinctive work that combines in this show to encompass the feelings evoked by verbs chosen. For instance, Valerie Dien and Maddie Korff are using “to crumple” and “to enclose” as inspiration for a wearable piece of sculpture. Created out of fabric that attaches to the dancer, this elongated and vividly red-colored piece allows the audience to visually see the performer (Korff) enclosed within the sculpture, also creating “crumple”-inspired movements that simultaneously crumple the fabric. With each group choosing different verbs for inspiration, there are a variety of sculptures, each having either a chance for interaction or the chance to view a dancer interacting with the sculpture.
Expect a performance and viewing that is unlike anything you’ve seen before as both groups of students bring their experiences and skills together to collaborate and produce an unrepeatable show. Available for viewing only on Wednesday, December 8th from 7:30-8:30pm, you will not want to miss this! Come prepared to explore the visual and experience the rhythmic.
