The Introducing Series
Season 2: ROOFTOP/GROUNDFLOOR
RoofTop Dance Introduces 13 performance-based artists in 13 days
At The Window at 125 at The Roger Smith Hotel
Day 3: Introducing Deborah Lohse
As makers and performers, artists occupy more space than just the stage with their presence. They constantly inhabit public, administrative, economic, cultural, internal, and political spaces; in this way the borders that contain what it means to “make art” are often unable to resist the blur of the artist working within them.
These 11 artists, who represent a broad range of young makers and experienced performers, exhibited their presence in The Window at 125 for a full 12-hour day; how they accomplished this, what bodies and non-bodies they utilized to do so, and the aesthetics of that presence was entirely up to them.
