12:00am Clay Revisited: Traditions in Shards

For much of the history of ceramics, the primary use of the clay medium was in functional ware, usually classified as pottery. While sculptural forms made of clay were plentiful, such works were thought of as sculpture, and not as ceramic art, as it is now defined. Once industrialization made mass production of functional ware possible and common, ceramic artists were free to explore the expressive potential of their medium. This new latitude created a dialogue on the categorization of craft versus fine art; ceramic artists could choose a traditional route and produce forms for everyday use, or they could stretch the possibilities of work with clay as an artistic and academic discipline. The objects in Clay Revisited: Traditions in Shards demonstrate a wide variety of forms and techniques by artists who work in ceramic media, as they move with ease throughout the broad range of traditional, painterly, and sculptural aspects afforded by the materials and methods at hand.

Funding for this exhibition was provided by the Gerald Eskin Ceramics Art Initiative

Finding Home is a trilogy of pieces, poignant, joyful, and humorous, about puppeteer Monica Leo’s parents and their immigration experiences. The first piece, “My Father’s Imaginary Friend,” uses candlelight and shadows to interpret the story of her father’s hope and survival during his incarceration in a concentration camp.

The second piece, “German Eggheads in Rural Texas,” traces the family’s life in a Lutheran parsonage in rural Texas. Monica uses her mother’s illustrations to create puppets and scenery that tell droll stories of language and cultural mix-ups and misunderstandings.

The third piece, “Mutti’s Muscles,” uses dolls and other objects to follow her mother’s rebirth as a metal sculptor and political activist in the United States after her father’s death.

This performance is free to attend and open to the public.

8:00pm Graduate/Undergraduate Concert

Presented by the Department of Dance

All works choreographed by graduate and undergraduate students in the Department of Dance are brought to life on stage at Space Place Theater.

PROGRAM

Mostly Void, Partially Stars
Choreography by Erin Durian
This piece explores the nature of stars, both scientifically and through human beings’ necessity to make them more human in order to deal with their incomprehensibility.

Que N Eh
Choreography by Tessa Ritchey

Simulacra
Choreography by Chafin Seymour, in collaboration with the dancers
Simulacra is a duet that works with the presentation of the female form in performance. With an awareness of gaze, intensive physicality, diverse sonic selections, and a sense of play, the piece questions notions of ownership and authorship, between its collaborators and its audience.

Between Acorn and Oak
Choreography by Anthony Pucci, in collaboration with the dancers
Between Acorn and Oak zooms in and out of a transmutation of bodies. The work explores what it could mean to share physical space and how bodies and persons are irrevocably changed by simply cohabiting place.

A Thousand and One Nights
Choreography by Ainsley Tharp, in collaboration with the dancers
This film explores a haunting recession of the subconscious; a place deeply rooted in the human experience; a brief moment enticingly toxic as it lingers in looped obnoxious oblivion.

MEGA-MIST(c)AKE
Choreography by Autumn Eckman, Chafin Seymour, Marc Macaranas
MEGA-MIST(c)AKE is a collaboratively created work between dancers Autumn Eckman, Marc Macaranas, and Chafin Seymour along with International Writing Program participant, Chen Ko-Hua.

Irresolution Does Not Suit You
Choreography by Anya Kress

Ye Ye Ochun
