barrish, curation #1: Amy Schiller & Helen Frank
was created for a select audience of 15. Set in Amy’s Brooklyn apartment, barrish propels four women through rooms and hallways, elevators and stairways in search of intimacy they may not be prepared to bear. The women navigate escalating tensions of closeness and unease—cleaving, withdrawing, receiving and reckoning—as they vie for connection. barrish, curation #1 reveals intimacy as both promise and threat as it collides with the space we inhabit.
Video from the September 11th showing of the A.O. Movement Collective’s barrish, curated by Amy Schiller & Helen Frank. Performed at Amy's Brooklyn apartment; video by Kelsey Gall, edited by Sarah A.O. for A.O. PRO(+ductions). Music from the original score for barrish, created and performed by the Idiot, aka Theo Wilson.
