Performance Studio Open House presents works-in-progress and a discussion with the artists about the development process for new movement and dance. This month features works by Katherine G. Moore & Artists, Kyli Kleven, and Missing You – Meredith Glisson & Bianca Rutigliano. Discussion afterward moderated by Jen McGinn.

Missing You – Meredith Glisson and Bianca Rutigliano
IS HERE | SHE is a choreographed performance work consisting of two female figures that shift from individually representing themselves to being understood as the same person. Through this method of transference the two female figures come to negotiate who they are not, in order to understand their identity through their own absence.
The loss of self is re-examined through the perspective of the other, influencing how we can change in recognizing ourselves. It is not however an individual undertaking, but is gained by putting several parts together; several people together with the goal of putting ourselves, in this case the female figure, back together.
The female figures configure a legacy that refuses the cooperation that diminishes them, where they become resistant and steadily negotiate their positions amongst an environment that is collapsing before them. How can the female figure hold up the roof of her own house only with her arms or, as it gets heavier, with her back?

How High is a solo investigation of space. It explores the demands and limitations of space on the body with rigor and urgency. It invites an imaginative understanding of space.
