'All Of It', a work in-progress, is an interdisciplinary performance in which participants inhabit and exchange twenty-three pre-established tasks and actions. Through these activities performers create verbal and physical collaborations that are continually established and dismantled.
Divided into four categories, these short-lived collaborations are accumulative, enabling, repetitive and dismantling. Accumulation creates camaraderie, enabling permits agency, repetition provides reliability and dismantling dissolves everything.
Within this framework performers create a continuous stream of futile foundations, resulting in the work falling in and out of itself, becoming coherent and unclear, formal and informal, performance and non performance.
This ever-changing negotiation puts performer and spectator in a shared space of knowing and not knowing. A space that lowers the wall between performer and on-looker, allowing time for not-knowing to turn into something else.
Performers: Matthew Brennan, Sandra Baptista, Dave Davre, Maira Duarte, Quinn Dukes, Juliana Garber, Benedict Kupstas, Butch Merigoni, Nola Sporn Smith.
