Action is Primary is an exhibition of improvisational research and performance led by choreographer Meg Foley.
Action is Primary features live performances framed by reflective documents of the development process created by Foley and three collaborating performers: Kristel Baldoz, Marysia Stokłosa, and Annie Wilson. This includes documentation of 3:15dances, daily improvised dances performed by each performer daily at 3:15pm wherever they are over the course of six months. The exhibition is curated by Marissa Perel, facilitated by Jeanine Durning, and presented at the Icebox Project Space at Crane Arts. Gallery hours Noon - 7pm Wed - Sat.
How do we engage with what’s already present, bring our insides to the outside and the background to the foreground?
Each performance of the three week run will be a one-of-a-kind making, with a mix of solos, duets, and a special one night only quartet. We are offering pay what you can (PWYC) tickets after your first attendance. We invite and encourage you to take advantage of this offer to attend multiple performances and to experience the constantly evolving practice in real time, engaging and participating within each collaborator's relationship to the practice. Performances run 80-120 minutes, depending. (View schedule of who's performing when here.)
PLEASE NOTE: A "First Ticket" is required before you can purchase any subsequent PWYC tickets for yourself to other performances. First Ticket is not transferable. Performances may contain nudity.
In considering what you can pay, we ask that you consider both how you value your experience with the work and that your financial support literally makes art happen. For reference, going out for a beer is around $5, a movie is about $15, a ticket to the orchestra is $30-150, and so on...
