ON A BED OF SPIDERWEBS at Arts Letters and Numbers

A one month residency at Arts Letters and Numbers: An experiential authentic movement environment providing participants from the community with the opportunity to move out of our heads and into their bodies

On A Bed Of Spider Webs is an immersive installation built in full transparency. Documentation of the process includes video art and movement sessions. These sessions were shared with the audience on social media and reflect the community and energy found at ALN. The residency culminated in an hour-long authentic movement session with the ALN community and board members. The participants met in a communal area and discussed what the session would entail and how to best take care of themselves throughout, we then walked into the installation space and moved together to music without verbal exchange for an hour. When the session was over, marked by the completion of the music and a second cleansing of the space with palo santo, the group met back in the communal space and ate dinner together while we processing the session.

SPILL SPACE at Otion Front Studio

A one month residency at Otion Front Studio: The psychotherapeutic use of movement to elevate a diverse array of voices held in an otherworldly environment

Over the first two weeks of the residency Otion Front Studio community members were invited via email and in response to social media postings to movement sessions with the artist in a held environment. The sessions were two hours and functioned within the following framework: before each session the artist built an installation in the studio, cleansed the space with palo santo and then sessions began with a short discussion followed by a movement section accompanied by music (which was recorded with the participant’s consent), and terminated with processing period. A video journal was created from these sessions and  was incorporated into the final performance.

The performance mirrored the exchange of ideas, feelings, and experiences that occurred during the movement sessions. During the final two weeks of the residency participants met to explore ideas relating to their personal experiences of SPILL SPACE. The result of these meetings was the experiential performance. The performance moved through three spaces. It began in the entrance stairwell, which was covered in mylar from floor to ceiling, moved into a small room under the stairs draped in skin toned stretch fabric and lit by a soft iridescent light and finished in the final room which was wrapped in off-white, textured fabric and soft lights. Live musicians guided people seamlessly from one room to the next while holding their attention without breaks. Each room felt more intimate than the last as the audience was soothed both physically and mentally by the shared experience and care of the performers.
