DOUBLEPLUS: JULIAN BARNETT + MINA NISHIMURA CURATED BY KOTA YAMAZAKI
JULIAN BARNETT + MINA NISHIMURA
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.
2 Strings X
2 Strings X is a cacophony of vibration and memory. The performance attempts to calibrate and locate in a fluctuating field, exploring lineage, symbolism, and embodied artifacts. Sourcing from individual Japanese histories and building upon a multifaceted collaboration between Barnett and musician/performer, Kenta Nagai, a transgressive ceremony blurs lines between music and movement, musician and thespian, and opens planes of sensation for phenomenal bodies, fluid culture, and vulnerable structures.
Sinking while Floating, Singing while Thinking
Sinking while Floating, Singing while Thinking is a study on fantastical bodies and also is an attempt of pinning down bodies that slip away from a present time, space and action. Re-evaluating vital correlations between “images” and “movements”, performers seek for alternative ways of being in a present moment and of connecting to each other.
