the memory series
is an episodic body of work created by slowdanger using collected field recordings, writings, found objects and performative structures. With each work that is put forth, a deeper understanding is found through the practice of making. slowdanger generates a thickness of memory through filtering veiled remembrances until they are distilled to their simplest form. Repurposing their own product so it remains constantly in process. This ever evolving process is akin to the construction zone where inspiration was drawn for the name, slowdanger. Breaking ground to build upon the demolished surface. Using old structures to innovate a new concept or construction.
memory 4 is slowdanger's premier evening-length multi-disclipinary work.
It was created as a part of New Hazlett Theatre CSA series and was performed on June 9 & 10, 2016.
Running for 60min, it featured performers Jasmine Hearn, Taylor Knight, PJ Roduta and Anna Thompson.
Sculptures for dance were created by Celeste Neuhaus.
Projections were made by Mike Cooper and Mario Ashkar, complemented by Antonio Colaruotolo's lighting design.
memory 4 was supported in part by the Heinz Endowments Small Arts Initiative.
