Salon: Karen Bernard’s LAKESIDE

By Douglas Dunn + Dancers

Salon: Karen Bernard’s LAKESIDE at Douglas Dunn’s Studio – SoHo Cultural Events

Douglas Dunn + Dancers

Feb 6, 7, 8 – 8PM

Choreographer and interdisciplinary performance artist Karen Bernard will present her new interdisciplinary work, Lakeside, a haunting new performance confronting the memory of trauma and its lasting impact on the body. Using a found costume from her past (a bright yellow and black body suit), Bernard conjures a scene where she and her collaborator Lisa Parra inhabit roles of victim, witness, and murderer, crisscrossing identities through minimalistic movements that have the power to deliver an emotionally charged wallop characteristic of Bernard’s layered and introspective work. The costume itself is imbued with a personality that is passed back and forth between Bernard and Parra, pointing to a shared experience of physical terror. The act of watching and bearing witness to violence is subtly interrogated, leading us to question what spectatorship means in a culture that regularly transmits and consumes violent imagery done to female bodies.

Lakeside is performed by Karen Bernard and Lisa Parra. Dramaturgy by Andi Villa Stover. Soundscore by Boris Billier. Video by Karen Bernard. Karen Bernard Projects is a program of New Dance Alliance.

Lakeside was made possible through creative residencies at L’Annexe-A in Quebec and Foundation Obras in Portugal.
