This performance is an enacted remembering of the source of EX, a performance piece originally produced in October 2014 for the California Building in NE Minneapolis. Devised with the collaboration of Annie Enneking, Megan Mayer, and Billy Mullaney, EX developed out of a year in which Campbell lost his mother to Alzheimers and his sister to cancer.|
This version is being recalled for performance in the new shared art space, Fresh Oysters Performance Research. The original piece explored themes of family, memory, and loss. This piece is a remembering of those memories. A process that, part theater and part dance, will repeat the formal structure deriving from Radioheads song "Codex." The original performance substituted a theatrical image for each musical image, converting a 445 sonic experience into a 60 minute live performance.
This recollection will have its errors and gaps, misremembered and heightened moments, reproducing the neurological process of human memory. Like a rediscovered artifact, the dust both hides and becomes a part of the remembered image. Only the memory is recalled, not the event itself.
