Tamar Ettun and The Moving Company
Presented by The Battery Conservancy
During the 45-minute performance, the Movers will delicately manipulate enormous pink balloons and handmade sculptures, walk on cement balls, draw on the pavement, jump through bike tires, climb, fall, and interact with the audience. The Moving Company will activate The Battery as a communal, pictorial playground.
Part PINK playfully explores the concept of aggression, this is the third part of the ongoing performance series Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly which is a sequel to Part Blue and Part Yellow that dealt with empathy and desire (premiered at the Watermill Center and Bryant Park in 2015 and 2016). Each of the four parts in the Mauve Bird tetralogy is based on a color signifying an emotion that is felt when relating to others. The final chapter will premiere in 2018.
The project confronts our (machine-like) psychological defenses with collective gestures. Mirrored movements.
