Disappearing Acts & Resurfacing Subjects: Concerns of (a) dance artist(s) then and now
Sara Wookey's new solo performance/lecture, Disappearing Acts & Resurfacing Subjects: Concerns of (a) Dance Artist(s) will make its Los Angeles debut as part of Automata's 2013 Artist In Residence series, following presentations at the Ethics in Aesthetics Conference in Tilburg, the Netherlands.  

The performance considers dance as a disappearing act, an erasure as construct, and questions recurring subjects floating in the public sphere- such as the preservation, ownership, and value of dance itself.  

Through image, movement and text, Sara reflects on being a subsidised artist in Europe in the 1990's, a freelance artist creating site-based projects in Los Angeles, and a selection of responses to her well known Open Letter to Artists.  She spins together large themes of legacy in dance, the economic condition of artists, and strategies for making it (including a humorously touching, yet failed, fundraising campaign on Kickstarter), into a digestible, funny and poetic consideration of dance in our time.
