The Daedalus Effect and Other Dilemmas

The Daedalus Effect and Other Dilemmas

Dates:

Friday, January 25, 2013 - 10:50am

Vidich assumes both the mythical persona of Daedalus, the taciturn engineer who invented the labyrinth, and Icarus, his ill-fated son at the Invisible Dog Gallery.

JANUARY 24 – 26 – 7.30PM – DANCE – THE DAEDALUS EFFECT AND OTHER DILEMMAS by ARTURO VIDICH

Vidich’s The Daedalus Effect and other dilemmas is a piece about work. As the creator and performer, Vidich assumes both the mythical persona of Daedalus, the taciturn engineer who invented the labyrinth, and Icarus, his ill-fated son, as metaphors for perils of the production process. Over forty modular objects and structures, mostly designed and built by Vidich, will populate the ground floor of The Invisible Dog Arts Center and be used as improvisational dance scores. Like booby trap puzzle pieces, idiosyncratic  combinations of these objects will generate physical dilemmas for the performer during each show, and prompt strings of full-body gestures.

Admission 0 – Tickets available at the New York Live Box Office, details here
Friday January 25 – Stay Late Discussion
