Gerard & Kelly: Reusable Parts/Endless Love

Sunday Jun 22, 2014 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM This is a past program

Gerard & Kelly: Reusable Parts/Endless Love takes place on both June 21 and 22 at 5:00PM. The work will be performed on a loop until 8:00PM.  Visitors are free to move throughout the space, and to come and go during the performance times.

Presented in conjunction with Gerard & Kelly's installation Kiss Solo on view in the museum galleries, Reusable Parts/Endless Love is a score-based, interactive performance for a rotating cast of four dancers, presented on a potentially infinite loop. The dancers transmit and transform the instructions for a kiss between a man and a woman into a machine-like production of unscripted representations of intimacy. Each manifestation of the work begins where the previous one left off, accumulating continuously over the course of these two days of performance.
