Graham Presents- After a year in the making, artist Marc Arthur debuts Mascot, a cross-disciplinary performance that combines painting, sculpture, dance and theater, into a visually and conceptually rigorous hour-long experience. Following the success of the artist's recent collaboration with Jack Pierson at Xavier Hufkens Gallery in Brussels, this project unpacks perception and loss to investigate the nature of violence through live painting.
 
Four performers and dancers will create a painting while extensive choreography, text and music guide their actions. Doves are also used by performers during each event which focuses on capturing the live performance through physical transformation. This non-narrative piece builds on structures created by Merce Cunningham and is rooted in techniques perfected by theater and visual artists alike, including The Wooster Group, Richard Foreman, Robert Wilson, the Viennese Actionists and the Abstract Expressionists.
