Reply / a catalog for circles and incomplete cities
San Francisco installment #2 in the travel series "To / Reply"
presented by RAW (resident artist workshop) and Tableau Stations | Floor of Sky
From falling, floating, disappearing, and appearing... Pieced together from an international collaborative, the performance work constructs a series of tableaux negotiating the edge space of landscape and circularity in the shared quotidian spaces of a city. Extracting for movement and image from Milan Kunderas The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, and what he terms the "magic of the circle dance", the mixed ensemble cast and a roaming camera move in and out of architectural patterns, place, and placelessness, exploring the nuances between memory, response, replication, and transformation. Compositions for music box, songs of Joni Mitchell, and disparate frames of silence create a score. Video shifts amidst the mixed topographies of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Volos, Genoa, and Berlin.
