September 30 – 7pm
An evening of live performances by three artists:
Pauline Jennings, DOUBLE VISION: Veritable Vicissitudes
Veritable Vicissitudes is an emergent and interactive performance installation featuring choreography by Pauline Jennings, sound by Sean Clute and video by Jessica Gomula. The audience is invited to explore a maze of scrim while live sound and video projections echo through the space, creating overlays of light and moving shadows. Sharing the maze are several dancers, Hanna Satterlee, Avi Waring and Willow Wonder. The audience will be given finger LEDs to direct the dancers in a dynamic game of co-creation where color combinations prompt a variety of movement changes.

Sean Clute, DOUBLE VISION: Video Action Painting (Big Timber, Chop! Chop!)
Based at The Monopole in Plattsburgh, NY, Video Action Painting pushes the boundaries of live video performance by engaging custom-built software and hardware to create abstract, non-linear narratives. The live performer and virtual entities communicate in real time to allow for a performance hybrid of digital storytelling, improvisation, and physical theater. In these video action paintings, stick figure drawings morph into animated characters, creatures, and landscapes that collectively tell the tales of deception, murder, lust and longing.
