Dancer/performance artist Claire Elizabeth Barratt and musician/composer Shane Perlowin recently joined forces for a live interactive performance at Pritchard Park. I missed it, but fortunately I was able to read the amusing and informative write-up by Jaye Bartell here: (Photos by Jonathan Welch) http://www.mountainx.com/ae/2010/splat_at_pritchard_park/
Barratt will be performing again this Sunday, July 17 8-11pm at FLOOD Gallery in The Phil Mechanic Building. Here's what The Mountain Xpress has to say about it:
Part dance, part performance art, part installation, LUNA — the brainchild of dancer Claire Elizabeth Barratt, set to the music of electronic sound-scape artist Kimathi Moore — is a continuous three-hour performance. Can’t sit still that long? No problem — the audience can come and go as they please. Barratt will be costumed “in a white powder which glows under ultraviolet black-light. This creates an ethereal & haunting effect”; she describes her slow-motion technique as “motion sculpture.” Held at The Flood Gallery in the Phil Mechanic Building on Saturday, July 17. 8-11 p.m. $10/$7 students. floodgallery.org.
