• A Dance with Supports

Ash, Jesse, 2014, Show, Exhibition or Event, A Dance with Supports

Abstract or Description:

Solo event (7th iteration of 10) as part of Avoidance-Avoidance project (2012-2017). Play performed in the Museo Mario Marini, with re-arranged plinths from Museum storage as set.
Avoidance—Avoidance combines a performed play staged amongst exhibited art works. The play has had 10 iterations in 6 countries using 12 actors and has been performed in 5 languages. Each presentation comprises a new edited site-specific script and a new body of accompanying artworks that act as both autonomous artworks and stage devices.
The play centres on two characters based on the film director Mary Ellen Bute and her real-life lover and cinematographer Ted Nemeth. The dialogue is a love story which comments on the methods of concealment that are used both in our personal intimate relationships and more broadly speaking in politics where ‘trust’ and ‘transparency’ are a valuable currency.
