“[Kravas’s] creative ingenuity, conceptual depth, and social consciousness … [is] characterized by a palpable passion.” —Culturebot
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. Each brings a range of influences: with roots in feminist and punk aesthetics, Kravas generates ecstatic and meticulous physical states; Haven activates space through architectural interventions for the performers to embody.
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.
The onstage performance solid objects/VOIDS proposes necessary expressions of radical intimacy and devotion with architecture, light, bodies, and objects. The piece includes 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 Shuǐ Xiān, and Chris Schlichting.
On May 12 and 14, you can also experience the free durational performance of solid objects/SANDWICH in the Cargill Lounge (5–9 pm).
