Works at LEIMAY Fellows Showcase
Danielle Russo // Danielle Russo Performance Project presents Study No. 2: First, fall from the weight of your thenar eminence. An excerpted sampling of a larger duet, this solo study is a glimpse into a larger exploration that began from the geometric dissections mapped by the laws of the golden ratio in the hands, arms, and head; as such, a gestural lexis is established, deconstructed and rendering the upper body onto the lower periphery. Marrying this movement with postures frequent in visual representations of “Via Crucis/Stations of the Cross”, these configurations are further fragmented and reconciled by timed accelerations based on a numerical series of binary strings according to Fibonacci.

Kathleen Kelley Frozen Baby. Through the integration of digital projections, mobile light design, and a sound score that travels through headphones and small portable speakers, Kelley investigates the physicality of secrets by interweaving the moving body with technological and digital landscapes. Kelley’s solo moves from highly nuanced gesture into a lushly feminine virtuosity.
