Ying LIU: Pigtail - a Swivel Stool Dance
multimedia artist, experimental hodgepodge-ist, and 2019 ISSUE Artist-In-Residence Ying Liu (@makeafountain) premieres PIGTAIL - A Swivel Stool Dance™, a new movement work utilizing swivel stools (deconstructed office chairs). Distilling a year-long process into an hour, a cast of dancers (Ashley Ervin, Sayoko Kojima, Shelby Nelson, Shelby Tucker and Yi Chen), have adapted to these chairs as extensions of their bodies, together developing a brand new technique. The choreography incorporates sports actions seen in synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics as foundational sources of individual and collaborative movement. During the performance, the audience is also seated in swivel chairs, with the dancers using their motions to influence the overall fluidity of the room.
Venue: ISSUE Project Room
