Oren Barnoy
Oren Barnoy’s new work is born out of his desire to craft his own version of a daily prayer through movement. The work exists between the initial impulse to create and the moment when meaning appears. It grows through time, building on itself, stretching and sustaining the moment before a gesture takes on an identity. Performers Greg Zuccolo and Paul Hamilton get lost in the action of the movement, transforming and passing through meaning and dismantling it altogether.
Naomi Elena Ramirez: The Temptress, Seductress, and Other Woman: Fictions of Desire and Responsibility
Exploring the archetypes of the Temptress, Seductress and Other Woman, Naomi Elena Ramirez questions representations of desire and responsibility. Mythologically described as a woman using her sexuality to entrap men and bring about their downfall, the temptress is a one-dimensional representation of women this performance seeks to deconstruct. Using drawings, text and photo fragments of gestures and movements, Ramirez creates a generative graphic score based on her research on mass media and literary representations, academic writing, movement improvisations and her own life experience. This score is the experimental script from which the live performance is made.
