"Susan Rethorst: Retro(intro)spective"
curated by Melinda Ring
For four weeks, we took over Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church, turning it into a laboratory and a living room. Susan was in-residence, having moved her furniture into the church to continue work on "208 East Broadway", a series of dances made in, and of, her living room. Subsequently displaced in its entirety to the performance site. The goal of her residency was to form the same kind of intimacy with the sanctuary that she has with her apartment, both for the development of the two new works she presented at the end of the platform, and for the platform's auxiliary events.
This video is an artifact of the process.
