Kayla Hamilton + Jerron Herman (curated by Alice Sheppard)
Thursday, November 29-Saturday, December 1
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.
Nearly Sighted/unearthing the dark
Nearly Sighted/unearthing the dark will explore the stories of disabled Black bodies throughout history and how their legacies extend far beyond time, colorlines, ability, and sexuality to bridge and impact intersectional discourses on said topics today. This movement exploration is a multi-sensory experience for the audience that delves deep into questions of what it means to see and be seen—as well as from whose lens we are doing the viewing. How does hearing and the idea of listening contrast with what is actually being heard; how is taste felt, while exploring the legacies we leave behind.
Phys. Ed. / aREST / Phys. Ed. BALANCE
P.E. is a social rite that profiles the prowess of youth, the abundance of strength. When this social rite is executed by a disabled body it performs prowess differently, yet as jubilantly. Referencing the typical exercises and pillars of it, Phys. Ed. will explore physical education through a revisionist lens and interpret unearthed movements from a hip disabled body. Compounding on notions of youth and grace, Phys. Ed. exercises both restraint and abandon, easily exhausting the performer until he decides otherwise. Phys. Ed. examines the sublime in the mundane.
