A three-part cycle of complex walking patterns, hits and misses, and a healthy dose of restarts, Connect Four explores the rhythms, contours, and textures of missed connections, reconnections, and absence. Three live performers in quartet with absence mark the four-year anniversary of the 2020 shutdown. 

Conceived and directed by J Dellecave
In collaboration with rosza daniel lang/levitsky and zavé martohardjono

For upwards of ten years Dellecave, Lang/Levitsky, and martohardjono have collaborated in various configurations and on multiple projects. We gathered for this project in 2022 as a point of departure for reconnection and as a practice of embodying connection through dance and studio practice. Here we are four years later. Pause.

Friday, March 29 | 5–9 PM
Saturday, March 30 | 5–9 PM
Sunday, March 31 | 12–4 PM

Timed entry tickets are for two-hour time slots. The performance cycle takes about an hour and will repeat continuously throughout the four hours of the installation. Recommended viewing time is one hour, and entry and exit may occur at any time. Masks will be required for audience members.
