Robyn Mineko Williams and Melina Ausikaitis (2nd Floor Corridor) will be creating a dance-based installation featuring Ausikaitis' wearable art and live music by her band, Aitis Band. The two will be riffing off of one of Aitis Band’s songs, Frankenstein, as the theme of the installation.
Jenna Pollack and E.LEE (North Stairwell) produce experiential events spanning visual art, dance, and narrative. They are passionate about interdisciplinary performance as an access point into both their work and their respective mediums. For this piece, the audience will join the dancers of Hubbard Street Professional Program as they descend down the north staircase of the Logan Center. The piece will explore the complexity of 'currency' as it affords, denies, and perpetuates our everyday rhythms. Through the subversion of expectations and co-authorship with the architecture, the guests will be an integral part of raising questions of a fantasy land perhaps not so far from home.
