Salon: Karen Bernard's LAKESIDE
Performance Artist and Choreographer Karen Bernard (Artistic Director of New Dance Alliance) presents a haunting new performance Lakeside confronting the memory of trauma and its lasting impact on the body. Using a found costume from her past, a bright yellow and black body suit, Bernard hauntingly conjures a murder scene where she and collaborator, Lisa Parra, inhabit roles of victim, witness, murderer, crisscrossing identities though minimalistic movements that have the power to deliver an emotionally charged wallop, characteristic of Bernard's layered and introspective work. The costume itself is imbued with a personality that is passed back and forth between Bernard and Parra, pointing to a shared experience of physical terror. The act of watching and bearing witness to violence is subtly interrogated, leading audience members to question what spectatorship means in a culture that regularly transmits and consumes violent imagery done to female bodies.

Karen Bernard Projects is a program of New Dance Alliance., which receives support for Subsidized Rehearsal Space. Lakeside was made possible through residencies at L'Annexe in Quebec and Foundation Obras in Portugal.

Bernard will seek to expand upon the relationship of Lakeside and Poolside (2019) during residency at the Emily Harvey Foundation. She will research nuanced physicality and the body as a map of memory, longing and a myriad of layered images placed in hypothetical situations.
