This is the second of three in our “only the lonely” series – supporting artists working in the safest possible ways, either at home with those who they live with, or fully remotely as technology makes possible.
In “Duet for Non-Things and Forsaken Objects,” partners Max Barnewitz (they/them) and Emma Sargent (she/her or they/them) chronicle the quotidian during the pandemic and explore the boundaries of embodiment in a time of restriction. Barnewitz and Sargent plan to create a 3×3 grid of three-minute screendances that illustrate a shifting landscape of movement – a landscape that changes depending on the order and vantage point from which the audience chooses to interact.
Ya-Ya Fairley, who earned an MFA from the University of Utah before spending time on the East Coast, returns to Salt Lake with the new film “Skin Hunger: A Performative Perspective on touch starvation during this pandemic.”
Roxanne Gray, a dance artist recently relocated from the Bay Area, will present “Sit.” The work is a short dance film, exploring micro gestural movement in a contained space.
This evening will also include Ashley Anderson’s “the task of providing.”
