Installation: [ ] by Artist in Residence Adrienne Westwood
[ ] is a corporeal and sonic exploration into histories of femme ancestors co-created by choreographer Adrienne Westwood and composer Angélica Negrón. Together with six performers, they develop an embodied exploration of untold and imagined histories. Weaving throughout a sonic sculpture, the group uses performance’s hyper-attentive care to call in and hold experiences of private and personal memories of family lore, real and imagined histories, and womxn’s visible/invisible labor, ultimately asking “what is long ago, but still right now?”
[ ]’s multiplicities as a performance-installation invite many levels of engagement from the public. When offered as a public installation, visitors may move through the instrument, creating their own path, their own relationship to the objects, and building their own layers of meaning. These participants may also offer their own mini oral histories or other sonic contributions to be recorded, with their consent, for inclusion in future sound banks.
