Starting Point

The Multiple Bodies Project is a collaborative endeavor conceived of by Charli Brissey that includes multiple artists who produce a series of interconnected works to be revealed in various cities and in various forms throughout 2015-2016. Instead of one comprehensive and geographically specific premiere evening, we hope to extend these ideas and processes into multiple communities and through multiple iterations, maybe even happening at the same time. These collaborations will take on many forms and structures, including performances, sound installations, videos, photography, essays, and who knows what else. Cooking? (So for example: A performance may be happening in DC while a related video is screening in New York). Not all events will be held in major cities, and some might only exist online. We are interested in pursuing critically engaged ideas that develop from the purposefully vague prompt of ‘tomorrow.’ This could include interrogations of gender, habit, sexuality, socialization, transformative action, censorship, forgiveness, love, kinship, and all shades of queerness that resonate when considering these topics in relation to ‘tomorrow.’

Description

A search for quiet amidst the noise while looking for the other in oneself and oneself in the other. The result, a shared movement language reminiscent of the two.
