ALEMBIC #4: The Alchemy of Audience

Performance Works NW || Linda Austin Dance announces
Oct. 16 & 17 @ 8pm
Guest Curator: Meg McHutchison
Performers: Vanessa DeWolf (Seattle), Kris Wheeler (Seattle) & Red Fred (Portland)

The conceptual thread that ties these artists together is their investigation of the boundaries of performance space.  They are intrepid in their improvisation practice(s) of invitation to and feedback from their audiences. Their curiosity is fueled by imagination, and illuminated in the moment-to-moment transformation of performance.


Wobbly Things---VANESSA DEWOLF
This piece will use multiple media (image, text, performance) to fillet the improvised moment of six objects. Audience will be asked to handle objects, imagine unseen objects, and to watch objects in movement in stillness and in image.

VANESSA DEWOLF is an interdisciplinary artist, who has been working in experimental performances for more then a decade.  

Something---KRIS WHEELER

For her performance at Alembic, Kris plans to share experiments with the juxtaposition of verbal language with the semiotics of the bodys voice.  She likens this to music.  Kris is interested in the experience of hearing and not being able to hear as well as the experience of seeing and not being able to see.  In this way the presence of absence has a role in the experience of her work.

KRIS WHEELER's explorations in dance have included contact improvisation, Skinner releasing and aerial dance.

RED FRED is a loose association of artists tracing shadow, movement, light and sound in an experimental practice of embodied drawing. RED FRED's recent experiments were part of Light and Shadow, a benefit for New Oregon Arts and Letters in June 2009. RED FRED is Christine Toth, Emily Stone and Meg McHutchison.
