Ghost Tongue Ruler
Friday & Saturday, Feb 16 & 17, 2018
Ghost Tongue Ruler premieres February 16 and 17. The work draws from studies in Qi Gong/CoreMotion, Body-Mind Centering, human physiology, and a wealth of religious, fictional and pop culture imagery. With collaborators/performers Emma Rose Brown, Samuel Hanson, Kirsten Schnittker and visual advisor Sofie Iommi, the performance investigates associations and significance of the heart. It explores ghosts, tongues and rulers; appearing and disappearing; being together and communicating across modalities.
Diana Crum ❤ dancers, artists, neighbors, friends and strangers is four weeks of activity that consider the heart, common associations with it, and its role in cultural narratives. From January 25-February 17, 2018, public events include one neighborhood art party, two workshops/laboratories, one reading, and two performances.
