“s o u n d i n g line” asks what it means to belong as a woman to a family line: what is the interplay between caregiving and loneliness; does inter-generational experience persist into present embodiment? Created within Snug Harbor’s historic cottage, the performers create, inhabit and transform a recalling of individual and collective pasts through movement, shadow play, and manipulation of simple elements — cloth, rope, paper, and light.
My first in a series of hybrid works exploring history and memory through embodiment, object and site.
