Heather Kravas and Victoria Haven: solid objects/SANDWICH

On May 12 and 14, the four-hour durational performance of solid objects/SANDWICH will be presented in the Cargill Lounge; come and go as you like.

Honoring individual and communal practice, solid objects is a multiyear collaborative project between Seattle-based choreographer Heather Kravas and visual artist Victoria Haven that unites the forces of dance and drawing. For this Walker premiere, they offer complementary presentations created for the stage and public spaces: solid objects/VOIDS and solid objects/SANDWICH. Viewed independently or as a whole, the works illuminate each physical space and audience as its own transitory and charged universe.

Offering new possibilities for how people might draw nearer to one another, solid objects/SANDWICH—created in situ for the Cargill Lounge—questions what is and lies within the frame as a sprawling, playful B-side to the composed intensity of solid objects/VOIDS.

Both pieces include a new electro-acoustic score and sound installation by composer Zeena Parkins, lighting design by Madeline Best, and costumes by womxn’s rites. Featuring Kravas and company members Aretha Aoki, Cecilia Eliceche, Joey Kipp, Jennifer Kjos, opal, and Symone Sanz in collaboration with three of Minnesota’s most distinctive dancer/choreographers: José A. Luis, Judith Holo Shui Xian, and Chris Schlichting.

Experience the onstage performance solid objects/VOIDS on May 13 and 14.
