LINDSAY PACKER: CALL AND RESPONSE: DEPTH OF FIELD WITH MELANIE MAAR

Apr 18 | Thu | 8PM |
View Website

Thursday, April 18th, light and color improviser Lindsay Packer premieres DEPTH OF FIELD, her first commissioned work as a 2019 ISSUE Artist-In-Residence. Throughout 2019, Packer creates new improvisational work in support of a research and performance project entitled Call and Response. Each program in Call and Response involves a new collaborator and builds a new conversation between elements of color, light, ephemeral form, movement, sound and space. In Call and Response: DEPTH OF FIELD, Lindsay Packer collaborates with dancer and choreographer Melanie Maar. Sharing and, at times, exchanging the responsibilities of their own established practices in improvisation and making, the artists use light, color, repetition, movement and the sounds and reverberations that emanate from their movements to define and redefine the space around them. Light amplifies their smallest adjustments and decisions -- expanding beams of light and leading edges of shadow extend actions beyond the body. This work investigates the inter-relatedness of things in an unfolding conversation between the seen and unseen, between whispers and communication across distance.
