2016 Performance
Back 4 Grounded
Socrates Sculpture Park / Skowhegan Performs
Long Island City, NY

Back 4 Grounded is a sequential performance of presentation and exchange. The piece will move through five sequences: City, Mimicry, Navigation, Description, and Address. How does a map get drawn in space through repetition and navigation? How does this map look with its coordinates removed? How does one’s description of a thing affect another’s direct experience of that thing? Can structures on a grand scale be held and felt? How is memory altered by reenactment? Descriptive gestures, the pacing with which one engages space and an object, and rituals of comfort and discomfort are considered here.
