The Atlanta Naked People in a Decatur GA backyard inspired by Bosch's Garden of Delights. Circular patterns often occur in nature and ther are plenty in Bosch's pain6ting, like at Stonehemge, but here a circle of naked humans, a kind of naturist Busby Berkeley or a human sundial, all connected to nature in various ways. Fun to watch the participants try to get themselves in orde and balanced correctly. Takes practice. Naked athletes.
This performance took place at Powerhouse Arena during the 2010 Dumbo Arts Festival: 36 models followed live direction, as vocalists and violins emerged from within the "living picture." The performance featured an original a Cappella score by Rima Fand and Sarah Small, and co-performance direction by Adam J. Thompson. Directly following the performance, a panel of choreographers, curators, and art historians (Jill Sigman, Mashinka Firunts, Danny Snelson, and Natalie Galazka) led a discussion about the contemporary intersection of performance and photography. The panel was moderated by Elizabeth Barragan and was curated by Lindsay Comstock.
