Socrates Sculpture Park: EAF12

One Thing Leads to Another: Part 3 consists on an outdoor sculpture in Socrates Sculpture Park, and a series of performances. During the performances, a hot air balloon is inflated and the cement sculpture anchors it to the ground.

Performance description:
This is a working installation and multi-media performance, inside an overturned hot air balloon, reanimated through dance, music, and shifting physicality. The project invokes themes of labor, and movement through exploration of multiple vantage points of the itinerant body. Dancers will move from one end of the balloon to another, each making an effort to complete specific tasks while negotiating the inflated, changing environment.
The music played by an ensemble of PVC wind instruments conceived by Yonatan Gutfeld around the concept and physicality of an act of blowing. While playing, the musicians participate in inflating the balloon by moving air particles in a way that manifests the idea of labor.

The audience can come and go as they like, and is encouraged to move inside and outside the balloon to witness the narrative evolve.
Duration: One hour

Dancers:
Natasha Corbie, Netta Yerushalmy, Lyndsey Eugene Laurent, Sabrina Shapiro, Shiho Tanaka.
Musicians:
Tal Avraham, Michael Buishas, Ehud Ettun, Yonatan Gutfeld, Michael Sachs.
