Stanley Love Performance Group premieres Tapestry Truths, a performance in which they inhabit Martin Gustavsson's screens—paintings affixed onto metal frames on wheels—as setting.
Utilizing Gustavsson's painting exhibition, El Mirage, as an open rehearsal space, the dancers occupy an environment that continually re-shapes itself. Working from social and modern dance idioms, the SLPG cast is built on an array of individuality that comprises a large ensemble of diverse bodies. While highly structured and choreographed, the performance introduces movement that is wildly dynamic in emotion and spirit, embodying fantasies of past and future.
