Visual artist and filmmaker Eve Sussman collaborates with choreographer Claudia de Serpa Soares and drummer Jim White to create a dance/ sculpture/ performance in which the fourth wall is also a window.
On one side of a two-way surveillance mirror, the audience peers in on an experiment: de Serpa Soares and White attempt to create something resembling melody using movement, rhythm, and light. This inventive performance work heightens the hermetic world of artists and voyeuristic role of audiences as its tandem soloists go roving.
