Vanessa Anspaugh asks what exists before we name it? Does the map precede the territory? Questioning how we maintain or reinforce difference between "the garden and the world", between your land and my land, between human and animal or Self and Other? On borders, back-roads, and in-betweens, Armed Guard Garden pits intimate gesture against awkward desire and perverted repulsion. An ensemble work created with performers Aretha Aoki, Molly Lieber, Mary Read and Dramaturge Susan Mar Landau.
Jen Rosenblit uses absurdity as a constant point of departure and welcomes it as a performative culture rather than an aesthetic. Working with performer and long-term collaborator Addys Gonzalez, Rosenblit tests the sensory differences of focus and distraction. In Mouth will utilize movement and sound vocabularies to highlight the visible differences between Rosenblit and Gonzalez.
