DESCRIPTION

Stephen Ratcliffe, poet and Mills College Professor of English, Edward Schocker, Mills alum and co-founder of Thingamajigs Performance Group, David Bernstein, Mills College Professor of Music, and Keith Evans, film, video, and new media artist, discuss the topic of durational performance. The conversation addresses the relationships between practice and performance, composition and improvisation, the challenges of scoring works of indeterminate length, and strategies for ensuring that each participating artist fully realizes their inspiration within a collaborative group context.

 

This discussion is an introduction to Temporality, a durational performance taking place at the Mills College Art Museum on Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 8 am to 10 pm.
