Community Ritual with Alice Gosti
Be part of the show: a community ritual release of emotionally entangled objects
Alice Gosti’s latest project Material Deviance in Contemporary American Culture (MDICAC) premieres at Dance Complex September 27-29th, 2019. A central question of the piece — Do objects imbued with so much of our worth start to take over and take on a life of their own? — will be addressed in part through a community ritual as immersive installation in Studio 7. You are invited to join this community ritual at any time between 8-10pm in Studio 7 at the Dance Complex.
To participate please bring an object of significance that you are ready to part with, but which has been hard to let go of for whatever reason. Participants will share the story of the objects with MDICAC performers who will witness and incorporate the story of these objects into the performance in abstract and nonlinear ways. To close the ritual, the released objects will be placed on the set to become a permanent part of the production
