Performance and exhibition artist Whitney Hunter presents two evenings of contemporary performance with an all-male cast in conjunction with a visual art exhibition. Hunter will perform accompanied by Preach R. Sun, Da Travla, an original solo work inspired by the “Great Migration” of African Americans from the rural south to the urban north during the early to mid-1900s. In the work, Hunter employs the crafts of movement, story-telling, set and light design, and digital media technologies to explore contemporary folk tradition and mysticism.
The performance collective, Whitney Hunter[medium] will perform SITE. SITE is a work of action and process, and an exploration of initiation as a practice of self-discovery and kinship, set to an entrancing score of collected sounds from field recordings, Orisha music, contemporary blues and hip hop, and original text.
October 4 to November 3, 2012
