Waking in the Dead Wood

Waking in the Dead Wood installation

A performance collaboration by Tamara Elkins and Guillermo Batiz based on the comics poetry character of Kalita created by Tamryn Bennett. This improvisation and response piece between dancer and musician will be performed to coincide with a film and text installation. The character Kalita keeps the codex of all memories. She is a shape-shifter and spider, a secret keeper.  Kalita is everything and nothing we can remember.

As part of this pop-up exhibit, a web of words and white strings has been created. The performance will take place in this space, exploring the malfunction of time and memory, the fragmented record keeping that is the human brain.

Thanks to Nina Kourea for inviting us to be a part of the show.
