iele paloumpis and Jen McGinnis perform “not unordered and not resembling”

Saturday, June 28

7:00 pm: iele paloumpis, Jen McGinn and Joanna Groom perform not unordered and not resembling

not unordered and not resembling is an episodic journey through memory, disorientation, and altered states of consciousness. Mapping through tape and sound provides a landscape for movement to reveal individual and collective experiences. Through live performance Jen McGinn, iele paloumpis, and Joanna Groom create a nonlinear structure in which all ideas have the possibility of connecting to all other ideas.

Tatyana Tenenbaum and Claudia La Rocco Performances

As part of the exhibition “Showing the Work,” curated by Sarah Fritchey, Franklin Street Works is presenting two free, public performances on Friday, June 27, featuring by Tatyana Tenenbaum and Claudia Rocco.

Friday, June 27 at 7:15pm, Tatyana and Ezra Tenenbaum perform “Prologue” from Private Country 
“Prologue” from Private Country is a duet created over the course of 2 1/2 years by siblings Ezra and Tatyana Tenenbaum.  The 14-minute was the result of embodied research into the continuum between spoken word and pitched singing.  The duet also serves as an overture or entr-acteto the evening length work Private Country, which Tatyana Tenenbaum describes as “a re-construction of American musical theater through my subjective memory, history and aesthetic desires.” For more on Tenenbaum, click HERE.
Friday, June 27 at 8:15pm, Claudia La Rocco performs “I just need one word and I can tell you everything” 
“Your hands are in fists, clenching; you are up on relevé with one foot in front and your flat back slides over an invisible horizontal plane. Don’t think about disaster. Don’t think about what his hands felt like against your thighs.”  I just need one word and I can tell you everything attempts to map the collision of internal and external realities. This is a solo performance in language, in which the body of the performer is rendered only through text. Running Time roughly 25 minutes.

Showing the Work

“Showing the Work,” an exhibition curated by Sarah Fritchey, will be on view at Franklin Street Works June 7 through August 31.  For related performances see our June calendar.

At a moment when major art museums regularly program experimental dance on their premises, “Showing the Work” evaluates the stakes of this exchange.  The exhibition brings together eight artists whose work explores the meeting place between the artist, the performance and the audience and demonstrates how time-specific events might be meaningfully exhibited in the gallery over a multi-week period.  Six of the artists will perform a one-night-only performance during the show’s run, which will culminate in a roundtable discussion on the final day.

“Showing the Work” asks: How can the live, transitory qualities of a dance be represented during this exhibition? How does the “white cube” facilitate a critical analysis of artist-audience interaction that traditional “black box” theaters do not? How can the works on display resonate qualities of the performing body? How might choreography be understood as a visual manifestation that is alive with the possibility for change, truth, intimacy, and exchange?

The exhibition features artists working inside and out of the dance fieldwho design individual systems of choreography to generate new work.  Many of these works will be on view to the public for the first time and aim to introduce the audience to terminology from the dance field, as well as to show the physical and mental work of dance.  The exhibition also rethinks a performance as one of an infinite set of outcomes, a living form that much like the body is in a constant state of change.

Likewise, the work on display will act more like a live body than video documentation and include: a floor-to-wall-to-ceiling pattern that is the map for a duet, a video that simultaneously presents four versions of the same dance performed in different spaces over the course of a year, artist notebooks that contain scores for emoting sound and recognizable language, a gaming device that proposes consumerism as a form of choreography, text/object combinations that prompt viewers to become collaborators in a recorded performance, and a lecture that critically interprets an early dance work anew.

Exhibiting artists include:Jen McGinn and iele paloumpis, Robert Morris, Claudia La Rocco, Carolee Schneeman, Mårten Spångberg, Tatyana Tenenbaum, and Gillian Walsh.
