Sara Wookey Solo: Disappearing Acts & Resurfacing Subjects: Concerns of (a) Dance Artist(s)
November 16 2013 at 17:00
Programmed in conjunction with “Performance Archiving Performance,” a presentation of works that engage archive as medium, on view in the Fifth Floor Resource Center from November 6, 2013–January 12, 2014.

Sara Wookey performs a new solo work that considers dance as a disappearing act and questions recurring subjects floating in the public sphere—such as the preservation, ownership, and value of dance itself. Through image, movement, and text, Wookey reflects on being a subsidized artist in Europe in the 1990s, a freelance artist creating site-based projects in Los Angeles, and shares a selection of responses to her “Open Letter to Artists,” which prompts thinking about the relationship between artists’ individual professional choices and the sustainability of the field of dance.
