DAMNATION: Experimental Works between a Dancer and a Painter

An experiment in the intimate space of the painter's studio...
succinct performance works presented in the style of a salon. Dancer/choreographer Deborah Elias and abstract painter Barbara Roche create a charged encounter between movement and stillness inspired by Roche's imposing and dramatic painting Damnation.

Three experimental works were created:

  • Visual Silence
  • Darkness Sticks to Everything (With music by cellist Greg Byers)
  • Catharsis

April-May, 2015

Presented at Roche Studio, Northrup King Building, Minneapolis.
