almost | Open Process : We Welcome You In!
Please join us on Saturday, April 9 at 7:30pm at BAX where we will be trying out ideas for our opening of almost, an interactive performance installation. This is a friendly and free workshop-style session inviting attendees to participate in visual and tactile activities while moving throughout the space attending to the beginnings of this work. We will conclude our time with a community conversation. We hope you will come and be a part of this creative exchange.
We are interested in how almost, a performance project that began prior to the pandemic, can welcome and invite the audience into a communal art-making workshop that provides connection and engagement into one’s own identity. As the audience creates a visual artifact uplifting their identity, performers will assemble costumes and sets around them for the performance to begin. *The full performance of the work will not be presented during this 75-minute workshop.
almost is directed by Donna Costello in collaborative co-authorship with visual designers Larry Jackson & Jennifer Paar and performing artists Stacy Lynn Smith & Tina Wang. almost will premiere June 24-26, 2022 at 7:30pm @CPR Performance Series. Please follow us @almostperformanceproject for future information. almost is supported by the For the Artists! Residency Program at MOtiVE Brooklyn and Donna Costello is a 2021-2022 Women-In-Motion Commissioned Artist.
