Curated by Artistic Associate Holly Hughes
“The New Work of Dogs,” author Jon Katz insists that animals work as much in contemporary urban culture as they’ve ever done in any period in human history. But it’s a different kind of work; it’s the difficult work of loving us. We have become the sheep that drift towards the unmapped darkness at the edge; animals bring us back to the meadow.
The performances in this series map the shifting boundaries between the animal and human, always reminding us of the animal in the human.
Friday & Saturday
by Kim Marra
A Queer Hippological Performance,” lesbian theater historian Kim Marra draws on her own familial involvement with horses to open up the history of Anglo-American women’s riding. Using heirloom equestrian gear, a facsimile horse, and archival photographs, she conjures a passion for Thoroughbreds and explores how it animates her current research into the fraught past of human-equine relations.
a solo dance by Amy Chavasse
Channeling observations, songs and philosophies of how to be a dog in the world from several of the deceased dogs in her life, Amy Chavasse presents a moving meditation on skewed perspectives and canine inflected humor.
Holly Hughes and Raissa Hinman map midlife crisis in the key of canine. Raissa Hinman is one of the top breeders of Alaskan Malamutes in the U.S. These dogs have won championships in confirmation AKA 'Best in Show" type of competition (obedience, agility and of course, since they are champion pullers, in weight pull competitions). Move over, Dancing with the Stars, for Dancing with the Dog, in this case Bootstrap and Raissa, who will be putting on the dog at Links Hall.
