FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH ARTIST PRESENTATION BY MAIDA WITHERS DANCE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY
Maida Withers Dance Construction Company will be joined by electronic musician/composer Steve Hilmy on September 20th at 8:30 pm in Art Works Now’s new location. Lighting will be designed by Enoch Chan of Deviated Theater. Withers, a pioneer and innovator of site-specific work in the world of dance, proposed a concept to the Art Lives Here partners back in January that would engage audiences with the questions, “does art live here?” and “what does it mean if art lives here?” The piece, entitled “Trans Action” allows the audience to decide if “art” (two female dancers) can survive the onslaught of eight dancers in business suits attempting to dominate and suppress her.
