PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION: REFRAIN by ABIGAIL LEVINE
July 9
11AM-7PM (Reception 5-7PM)
Location: farm project space + gallery, 15 Commercial Street
Refrain creates a cyclical choreography through the writing of a repeated phrase. A precisely crafted movement incantation, these danced refrains produce a visual document that, like their performance, expands the original phrase through imperfect repetition. The refrain to be performed at farm is based on a phrase excerpted from John Cage’s 1959 Lecture on Nothing.


IMPROVISATION SKETCHES
July 10
8PM
Location: Wellfleet Preservation Hall, 335 Main Street
Admission: $15
Watch as Fleet Moves artists create instant choreography in a temporary ensemble. Improvisation sketches will feature an evening of improvised performance including the elements of dance, sound, lighting and costuming based on a structure called Pentamodal Duets. Pentamode is a word built from the Greek pente meaning five and the Latin word modus for manner. These modes combine to create 15 unique pairings, which are the “colors” or “tones” that comprise a pentamode. In its simplest form, Pentamodal Duet, two dancers listen to the emerging composition and act through these modes of relation. The resulting abstract relationships within the composition are the focus of playful investigation.
