THE GARAGE VERGE FESTIVAL AND ART WORKOUTS PRESENTS:
TIME AND THE MAKING PROCESS
A Two-Day Laboratory with Margit Galanter and Abby Crain
Friday + Saturday, July 6 + 7, 1 – 5 pm
In this two-day Art Workouts lab on TIME, performance, and the making process, we will be wrestling with questions of temporality and its ramifications for live art construction.
First she thought, there is only the now and when the now is gone then it is gone so what we make is so fleeting, that live performance is the ultimate act of disappearance…. Yet time is “full of holes or gaps and art as capable of falling or crossing in and out of the spaces between live iterations” (Rebecca Schneider). What is shaped by our unintentional re-enactments? And how might we consider the multiplicity of events that go into construction as a means through which to understand the operations of time? How is time-based art weathered or burnished, and life’s detritus implicated in the texture of the work? Does the performance begin with the idea, with the rehearsals, what is the event?
She says, we make time through enacting.
This workshop is suited for performers and art makers of all disciplines. We work with the body, so much of our work accesses from this entry point, but no training or previous experience in this vein is necessary. We thrive on dialogue across disciplines!
