Every once in a while, we all lose our bearings.
In a time of constant friction and dislocation, SLACK confronts the labor and physical toll of moving away from familiar anchors and toward undiscovered horizons. The piece begins in the Mojave desert, isolated amidst an arid topography of creosote bushes and debris. Here, gravity, possibility, and our sense of responsibility entangle. What tools do we have to navigate? What weight must we carry?
SLACK will be performed 10 times in public space beginning March 30, 2019. Performances occur every 10 days.
The final performance takes place on June 28, 2019.
