FANA FRASER + BURR JOHNSON

DoublePlus embraces the artist-as-curator format to present three split-bill evenings featuring artists deserving of new or wider visibility, each curated by an established artist. The 2018 series is curated by Alice Sheppard, Kimberly Bartosik, and Kota Yamazaki. 

Fana Fraser
BBB

Fana Fraser presents BBB, a new solo performance work-in-process. BBB is many things: a bloody bloody bay, a brave bitter birth, a beautiful bellowing beast. BBB blends underbelly tempos of the Caribbean, conjuring a fantastic world of desire, scrambled objects, and remnants of a brutal colonial history. With stillness and mania, BBB is a new word for revenge. BBB is a new formula for power. 

Burr Johnson
Collapse

Collapse emerges as a study on the textures of movement, the interplay between expressionism and formalism, and the subversion of expectations. The dancers seek new worlds by interrogating and reimagining various entrenched dichotomies—natural/artificial, female/male, human/animal, static/moving, and passive/active by way of intense physical rigor, pedestrian task-based actions, and dynamic partnering. As a painter uses chiaroscuro to transform two-dimensional surfaces, the juxtaposition of events and situations creates drama in this work.
