At the moment, Nicole and I are gathering our wits for today's performances at the DUMBO dance festival and gearing up for tomorrow's dress rehearsal for Dance in the Fells. It is unfortunate that we are so busy as two of our favorite visual art collaborators, Hannah Verlin and Cynthia Roberts, have exhibits that I want to see before they close.
I'd love to hop over to the Boston Sculptors Gallery before October 6th to see Hannah Verlin's Fates & Furies: America. You may remember how Hannah's handwriting drew you in to the installation she designed under the steps at Springstep during our first Against the Odds festival. In this show she uses historical records, letters, collected data, and some original text to explore the mythic sagas of American history.
I am also eager to view Cynthia Roberts’ new series of paintings The Inhabitants/Les Inhabitants on display up at Endicott College. She developed them during a sabbatical period in Le Havre in 2012 when she was also designing projections for Back Going No Going Back. Through our collaboration, my curiosity grew as she shared stories of how she peeled back layers of the French city through individual visual inquiries into its people and places. Also on view will be video documentation of The Diver, a collaborative dance she created with company French La BaZooKa that premiered at the André Malraux Museum of Modern Art.
