Pounds Per Square Inch Performance: APOLOGY | Arts & Culture
A Statement Released by Buffalo Arts Studio
APOLOGY, the newest inter-disciplinary performance by Buffalo Arts Studio resident artist Gerry Trentham of pounds per square inch performance, is an investigation of the falling body, the falling nation from triumph, the shame of both the oppressed and the oppressor. This work is a collaboration with Pennsylvanian visual artist Kaersten Colvin-Woodruff, Toronto filmmaker, actor, and director Valerie Buhagiar, Toronto media artist Kaija Siirala, and Buffalo media artist Jesse Deganis Librera, with dramaturgy by renowned Butoh artist Denise Fujiwara.
From January to April, 2013, the final creation cycle will be completed. YOU are invited to open showings of the work in progress. On January 18 and 19, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Joanna Angie Gallery at Buffalo Arts Studio (BAS), the first showings will focus on the integration of casted bronze “armour” and detail the hanging talismans by Colvin Woodruff and the projected Buhagiar images by Siirala and Deganis-Librera into the performance by Trentham.
On April 19, 2013, at Dance Space 509 in Toronto, the team will present a final creation
process showing prior to setting off on their production and touring phase. Please join us for a showing of this exciting collision of visual and performing art and post-performance talk-backs with the artists. For information and/or reservations call (716) 631-2435 in Buffalo and 416 7381-1936 in Toronto.
