When Visible 

 

an evening length, original dance performance exploring the presence and absence of light and the power it has to illuminate and absorb perceptions of feelings and reality. When experiencing light, the mind is often drawn to the visible, however there is an entire spectrum that we cannot see. Combining movement with the interactive visual art within the light exhibition, the dancers created an immersive experience that invited audience members to examine the purpose, balance, and existence of both light and darkness and the effect both have on more than just our sight.

Premiered at KANEKO as the second performance within the MOVEMENT Series | March 2 + 3, 2018

language for the living

 

a performance choreographed by Kat Fackler in conversation with the work of Chicago-based artist Caroline Kent during the opening reception for Disappearance of the Word, Appearance of the World at The Union for Contemporary Art. 

language for the living explored the possibilities for communication within movement. Using their bodies as the medium, performers created a visual language through gesture, shape, pattern, and form in an attempt to transmit information and ideas beyond words.

FORM

 

an evening length, original dance performance exploring concepts of motion and form in relation to the human body as an individual, and as part of a greater entity. Combining visual art, sculpture, various tactile materials, lighting elements from the KINETIC exhibition, and a live sound score, the artists examine the nature of human connection and our kinetic relationship to one another within space.

Premiered at KANEKO as the first performance within the MOVEMENT Series, October 2017

Intangible

 

As a part of KANEKO’S “Passion & Obsession: From the Collection” exhibition, tbd. dance collective created an original performance exploring the idea of movement as an intangible collection, able to be viewed, but only truly stored in the mind. Through lighting and sound, tbd. transformed the performance space into the mind of the artist consuming and recalling movement in an attempt to build an intangible collection. 

Intangible featured a live score performed by Omaha-based band, CLOSENESS, and Lori Reckling

Commissioned by KANEKO, April 2017
