A site-specific installation of sculptural works, performance and video explore the borders, connectivity and poetics between excess and essential need.
In a world with rising waters and the mirage of stability, we may all soon be refugees from war, drought and techno-oligarchy. How will we navigate the nighttime sky to arrive at the distant shores of new possibility? In a new production of MobileInTent, a world of detritus, wood, pig intestine, and tar and feathers is activated in a collision of dichotomies. It is the contents of a Gucci bag vs. a refugee’s knapsack; accumulation and acquisition vs. the fragility of a small bird; boats, bodies, and balls in perpetual motion propelled by the tenderness and greed of desire. Direction and sculptural installations by Ann Schnake, large format projections by Robert Gomez Hernandez, performance by Dancers Carmen Serber, Natalie Green, with violin and acoustics by Kristina Dutton.
