Davidson Gigliotti will show his video Close-Up Magic: Seven Tabletop Spectacles by Stuart Sherman. Stuart Sherman was a performance-art star in New York in the late 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, and his work still resonates. He was a master of close-up performance, as this tape reveals. There was no one quite like him. This work, shot in 1980 in Gigliotti’s studio, was a unique collaboration between perfectionists.
Jennifer Monson will perform a solo. Her solo practice involves an illogical approach to movement production that sends the dance reeling through thresholds of the familiar and toward an indirect searching. In the dance, bewildering details that require intense concentration unravel into the big and simple.
Christopher Williams will present revivals of two culminating solos from his award-winning work Ursula and the 11,000 Virgins (2005) and its companion The Golden Legend (2009), which together form a compendium of dance portraits of 28 legendary medieval saints. The portrait of St. Ursula (originally performed by Derry Swan) will be performed by acclaimed dancer Caitlin Scranton, and that of St. Stephen (originally performed by Brian Brooks) by the up-and-coming Cemiyon Barber.
