> DESCRIPTION

What does it mean for an action or gesture to be site-specific? Reflecting on her time at Headlands, Flora Wiegmann (AIR '09) will consider this question through performance and discussion. The notion of site-specificity runs deep in her work– both its potential and its impossibility. These conflicting ideas are illustrated through her experimentation with the fleeting activities of choreography and dance, on the one hand, and the permanence of video and filmmaking, on the other. This rare, first-hand experience will begin to illuminate Wiegmann’s immersive practice as a performer and image-maker.

We ask that you kindly RSVP to public programs by emailing info@headlands.org.

The public is invited to a sumptuous and family-friendly dinner at Headlands' Mess Hall at 6PM. Headlands' Chef, Keith Mercovich, combines a passion for world cuisine and fresh local ingredients. Dinner is $20 per person ($15 for Headlands Members). To RSVP, please visit http://www.headlands.org/article_forms.asp?key=21.
