Holiday Artist in Residence: Taka+Lucy

December 24-27, 2014

Showing on December 27, 8:30 pm

Portland based artists, Takahiro Yamamoto and Lucy Lee Yim, will work collaboratively on a new project Fun/Fuck, while in residence at Pieter. Fun/Fuck is an investigation of how spoken and written language can drastically alter the way dance is experienced. It is a meditation on meaning-making, as the performers improvise, plumbing the depths of sense and nonsense. The two words of the title – one pedestrian, the other profane – will be broken into fragmentary sounds and played with. Like children discovering phonetic articulation, the dancers will explore the shape and power of “Fun” and “Fuck”. Vocalizations will motivate movement which evolve from minimal gestures into physical duets, springing from the hyperbolic associations of these words.
