Conceived, curated, and edited by Janessa Clark
FEBRUARY 5 - JUNE 18, 2021
Conceived, curated, and edited by Janessa Clark, Communion is an experimental video art response to the isolation and uncertainty individuals are facing in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Because dancers can no longer breathe together, touch, or share the experience of movement within the physical studio, Communion invites 40 dancers, separated by physical distance and the pandemic, into a digital space to commune together.
Each unique duet is created from videos by two different dancers who are separated by cities, countries, and sometimes continents. These video combine to create virtual duets that are set to music.
Ivy Baldwin, Julian Barnett, Kelly Bartnik, Kimberly Bartosik, Alexandra Beller, Gerald Casel, Janessa Clark, David Dorfman, Jeanine Durning, Doug Elkins, Sharon Estacio, Ori Flomin, Helena Franzen, Wendell Gray II, Jasmine Hearn, Peiling Kao, Catherine Kirk, Alice Klock, Joanna Kotze, Leslie Kraus, Benoît Lachambre, Catie Leasca, Rosalynde LeBlanc, Jordan Lloyd, Gesine Moog, Yutaka Nakata, Jennifer Nugent, Stevie Oakes, Omagbitse Omagbemi, Laura Peterson, Kendra Portier, Jess Pretty, Kumar Ravi, Dan Safer, Gus Solomons, Jr., Colleen Thomas, Saúl Ulerio, Guy Whitney, Takahiro Yamamoto, and Jessie Young.
