Melinda Ring: Forgetful Snow

Melinda Ring Forgetful Snow Event

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

A triptych composed of two durational performances and an evening-length dance, Forgetful Snow investigates the transcendent possibilities of body and mind. By day, performers in the installations The Landscape and (Memory of) Snow Machine labor at searching for landscapes, retrieving lost moments of time and archiving the accumulating results. These simple tasks involving the body, video, and language are quietly focused and mysterious. In the evening, the dance is performed without clothing and accompaniment to strip it of layered-on meaning and emotion. Presented instead is an intimate and formally complex choreography with elusive performative demands and textures. Ring’s main collaborators for this project are performers Talya Epstein, Maggie Jones, and Molly Lieber. Additional performers include Lorene Bouboushian, Luke George, and Federico Hewson. Lighting design by Paul Clay. Curated by Matthew Lyons.

Commissioned by The Kitchen and The Box gallery, Los Angeles, Melinda Ring’s Forgetful Snow is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance. Ring received support from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program through a real estate donation from Savanna. This work was developed, in part, with support from Gibney Dance Center's Dance in Process residency program and the residency program at Mount Tremper Arts. Additional funding provided by the friends of Special Projects.
