"Ordinary Devotions" is back by popular demand as part of SoLow Fest PDX. Created and performed by PWNW Director Linda Austin, this solo is a meditation-in-action on the ordinary/extraordinary life of the body, a tactile and tender apprehension of the world to hand. An intimate drama of gesture and sensation unfolds alongside a bracingly unorthodox use of objects: e.g. a white vinyl tarp, a twig a lamp, cassette tapes, and multiple spools of thread. These objects and the body animating them co-exist in a space at once sculptural, time-based, and performative. Throughout, task-like activity yields to poetically and emotionally-charged movement/text/image evoking vulnerability and hints of mortality. Aural landscapes based on field recordings by Juniana Lanning also explore the transformative potential of material existence. Video by Kelly Rauer.
The show runs approximately 60 min.
