"Takes on a particular splendor" Jim Demetre, Art Dish

"Neurotic, erotic, and electric..." Jen Graves, The Stranger

"A remarkable performance. . ." Jeremy Barker, SunBreak

For one weekend only, Stranger Genius Award winner Susie Lee fuses dance, technology and live music to present an imaginatively intense and fantastical journey of creativity throughout a routine day. After sold-out runs two years ago, the Susie Lee Ensemble debuts this new work at Theatre Off Jackson.

SWIMMING THE LIST merges cutting-edge technology with physical artistry, in which dancer, music, and drawn light move together as one twirling, breathing, and dynamic body. These elements come together in a work about dovetailing creative and everyday actions:

"Within a daily routine, we have access to creative spaces which are like fissures in time. This work presents these transitory and interstitial spaces juxtaposed within the span of a day. They are the stolen moments, scraps of paper, waiting in line, and our dozing dreams. As the day progresses, there are two lists generated: One is for the routine obligations where we buy, drive, cook, pay, work, pick up and start over again. The other is for the creative obligations; we observe, extract, mutate, expand, deviate, and linger."

This work features choreography by Beijing-raised / Seattle-based dance artist Ying Zhou and musical composition by Minneapolis composer, Emily Greenleaf. The live digital imagery is drawn by emerging local artist, Keeara Rhoades.

SWIMMING THE LIST is a dedication to our artists who, despite little time and resources, relentlessly push beyond fatigue, doubt, apathy, loss, and disappointment to find generative, creative spaces

Susie Lee's work bridges the gap between technology driven, time-based media with intimate human experience. Shortly after completing her MFA, Lee was recognized by Seattle Weekly as the "2006 Emerging Artist of the Year" for the "intelligence, emotion and sensuality" of her video art. Following her first solo exhibition at Lawrimore Project in 2007, Lee was named "An Artist to Watch" by the national publication Artnews. Lee's work has been exhibited widely, from Miami to Los Angeles, at the Denver Art Museum, Denver, and Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, and internationally in Italy (Galleria Tiziana Di Caro, Salerno; and Artefiere Bologna, Bologna), and at Gallery Hyundai, Seoul, Korea. She was the winner of the 2010 Stranger Visual Art Genius Award. In 2011, as a recipient of the Northwest Contemporary Art Awards, her work was recently exhibited at the Portland Art Museum. Her first museum solo exhibition, "Of Breath and Rain" will be presented at the Frye Art Museum in February, 2012. Lee is represented by Lawrimore Project, Seattle; Myers Contemporary, Baltimore; and Galleria Tiziana Di Caro, Salerno.
