In Distances Smaller Than This Are Not Confirmed, co-creators David Neumann and Marcella Murray create a staged conversation of intimate scale on the set of a TV talk show where they explore and unpack their several-years-long ongoing dialogue about race alongside astronomical questions of scale and time.
A dance exploring conscious femininity, ambition, growth mania, liminal space and transformation. Through movement practices and embodied sonic scapes, I investigate the body as human, animal, machine, energy and vessel for transformation as it traverses and descends deep into environments and states of liminality. It is a collage. There are lessons from Marion Woodman, Yrsa Daley-Ward and Prince. There is physical rigor and tenderness. There is glow and soft neutrals. There is sonic saturation and a symphony of silence. There is breaking, mending and listening.
Redactions is both an expanding collection of text drawings (watercolor and ink on paper) and the performance that results from them. Following a residency period at The Chocolate Factory, Levine will present a choreographed reading of a selection of the Redactions. The performance coincides with the publication of a portfolio of the Redactions, which will be launched with an exhibition at the new Chocolate Factory space in Spring 2020. The Chocolate Factory event will be the first stop in a “performance book tour” through cities in the US, Canada and Mexico.
