Performance Works NW’s Happy Hour continues this month with pieces by founder Linda Austin and new work by Maya Vivas, presented Thursday October 15, 5 pm.
In Three Miles of Possible, movement, drawing, sound and texts inhabit a durational work-in-progress. Austin animates a series of spatial paths envisioned as giant drawings and runes.
When completed, it will total three miles. It will invite interruptions and annotations touching on utopian fictions, possible world theory and modal logics.
Vivas is an artist and co-founder of the Ori Gallery in N. Portland. Her latest project, a convoluted remedy to my soft hands, is a “live feed and premeditation converse maneuvering through accrued diasporic therapies and rumination.” mayavivas.com.
EXTRA! Sunday, October 11, 4-5:30 pm, is an online watch party celebrating PWNW’s 20th anniversary, and 10 years of the Richard Foreman Mini-Festival. Celebrate PWNW and the genius of Richard Foreman. Artists created works in 7-10 days based on Forman’s notebook texts.
