A PERFORMANCE BY IEVA MISEVIČIŪTĖ
May 4, 2014
Hosted by Wərkärtz, 767 S. Alameda Street, St. 100
To kick off LA><ART’s new performance series, Ieva Misevičiūtė will present IMPERSONATIONS, a series of dance and speech acts depicting objects, people, phenomena, and philosophical concepts. Misevičiūtė - a former Lithuanian clown, academic, and practitioner of unproductive gymnastics – uses movement to fuse comedic strategies, academic vocabulary and butoh. In this performance, impersonations go beyond imitation of human qualities to concepts such as radical hospitality, lunging non-movements, worm at random, soft knowledge, and a man with a hat on top of another man with a hat.
