“Elusive Bird” ↬ 12-15 July 2018
The Vanderbilt Republic very proudly invites you to experience “ELUSIVE BIRD”, the third evening length component in a trilogy spanning five years of creation at Gowanus Loft; an immersive dance/projection collaboration between the noted choreographer/dancer Rebecca Stenn and photographic artist George Del Barrio —
This final chapter of a performance installation series utilizing immersive, room-filling projection design, dance, and live music happens 12-15 July 2018 exclusively at Gowanus Loft (est. 2012), a project space known for presenting the region’s most creative, original and technologically innovative work.
Inspired by Rei Kowakuba’s recent exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this performance explores the concept of a duet and how two people moving onstage hold between them a microcosm of the ways we interact, breathe, and love.
Kowakuba’s art has led to questions about the concept of binaries, which are not opposites as much as they are two things together, sharing space and commenting on each other sometimes quietly, sometimes with rage.
