Resurrection Series: Ben Asriel
Encores of three recent works by dance, sound and video artist BENJAMIN FORD ASRIEL.
MINUTIAE ETUDE (solo) presents the awkward catharsis of a dystopian protagonist as he discovers Elton John and vulnerability.
I HATE NAKED (duet) places dancers Rebecca Breau and Meagan Vincent onstage with intimate footage of themselves speaking in private about difficult and mundane subjects. Interacting with the footage, the dancers are forced to deal with their past, their values, each other, and ultimately themselves...all on display for you.
In MY BODY IS ME, an intimate, austere, and personal solo, Benjamin shifts the camera to himself and his own body. Borrowing from a video of himself improvising as a child, Asriel investigates his own body as the reification of his identity and experience.
Asriel's work has been seen at Dance Theater Workshop, The Ohio Theater, the Chocolate Factory, Dixon Place, Movement Research at the Judson church, Danspace Project, and CPR â Center for Performance Research, is most well known for founding Project Paper Trail (http://www.basriel.com), a website that painstakingly documented both the fundraising efforts and artistic process that created his work 'We Have Become Beautiful'.
