Hot Talks: Alison Denham and Billy Marchenski
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
2206 Main Street
Alison Denham and Billy Marchenski present choreography and slideshow excerpts from their piece “slowpoke.” This live performance is inspired by their experiences visiting the Chornobyl Exclusion zone in the Fall of 2011. “slowpoke” starts off as a pilgrimage to rediscover lost roots and turns into an analysis of ideas of authenticity and human beings’ relationship to the eternal in everyday life. The show premiered at the Russian Hall last summer, co-produced by local Theatre company Radix.
This excerpt comes from a duet that deals with themes of artistic versus moral responsibility and at making the invisible visible. It is an attempt at touching, for a moment, what is uncanny, intangible, unknowable.
