Stay a spell, spell a word, cast a spell.
D.C.-based performance artist Eames Armstrong premieres Spell at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. This experimental new performance looks at how we mark time, language that is unspoken, and the everyday rituals that permeate our lives. Can we evade fixedness through abstraction, can gestures be transformative? This performance is about searching through the ordinary for new processes of becoming.
On the eve of the May full moon, dance is an invocation, a celebration of confusion and multiplicity. Armstrong developed the choreography and performs Spell with Hayley Cutler/darlingdance. The duo responds to the unique architecture and long atrium of the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Chris Rasley‘s live electronic music will accompany them.
