To (untitled portrait and ocean)
A meeting of performance art installation, videologue, and intimate dance theatre remapping anomie, travel, and the gravity of location. As a shared work, and as a collaboration of artists from four different countries, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, and the U.S., To explores the traces of fugue, from memory dislocation, to the cut layers of musicality, image and movement cartography. With a question of the push and pull of travel, the work creates a series of theatrical tableaux taking apart and re-piecing the quotidian, bizarre, and fragile ways in which people meet, miss, mirror, glimpse, erase, to flee, to take flight and to return to a question of address.
Floor of Sky acts as a context to explore experimental collaborations and theme based work engaged with the specificity of site, transit, and the absences and inversions of everyday life.
To (untitled portrait and ocean) has been supported in part by: Theatre Bay Area (CA$H), MOVINP Action - Italy, HweiLan International Artist Workshop, The Taipei Artist Village, Taiwan, and the Berlin Senate Cultural Exchange/Der Regierende Bgermeister von Berlin.
