Taken From Armentrout:
“reveries and elegies” is a site specific performance project about change and dislocation that will travel through four different Bay Area sites over the course of Winter 2012/2013. “reveries and elegies” will play four different weekends from December 2012 through February 2013, starting December 1st and 2nd at her home dance/performance space, the Milkbar at the Biscuit Factory in East Oakland, moving December 22nd and 23rd to Interface, a small Temescal Oakland art gallery, then January 12th and 13th to CounterPULSE, a large dance space in San Francisco, and ending February 23rd and 24th at senseofplace LAB : Baker Beach, a small gallery space in San Francisco near Baker Beach. “reveries and elegies” is a piece of fragments – a piece consciously created out of fragments and the fragmenting of material. A piece that attempts to embody the experience we have of life (as well as of performance) as a fragmentary thing, ungraspable, only partially here at any given time, ephemeral, always vanishing even as it is presenting itself as “the present.” A piece that aims to present its audience with a new embodied experience of the sense of loss and wonder we humans have at this basic fact of life.
