GLEN, GIRL, GALLERY
Center for Performance Research will host Bessie award-winning performer Gwen Welliver's, Glen, Girl, Gallery, a new dance work. Performances will take place Thursday through Saturday, March 31 April 2 at 8: 00 P.M at Center for Performance Research (361 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY). Tickets are $15.
Through a dance involving four performers and large-scale "drawings," real and imagined, this work focuses on how we translate ideas, images, and narratives from one form or medium into another. Investigation flows both ways: how drawings catalyze or transform movement and, conversely, how choreographed group movements "become" drawing. The work is not abstract per se; instead, it explores abstraction as an action, a process, and a presence.
Collaborators include: Kayvon Pourazar, Stuart Singer, Julia Burrer, Jake Meginsky, John Torres and Reid Bartelme.
