FringeArts: Kate Seethaler & Meghan Frederick – Carnivore

September 23 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$20
Carnivore

‘Carnivore’ researches the imaginative life of the material body, shaped by the artists’ own experiences of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Alternately humorous, grotesque, sensual, and whimsical, this site-specific duet explores motherhood, gender, and dance as performances of the body. Utilizing a three-dimensional approach to choreography inspired by pregnancy itself, ‘Carnivore’ conjures body-images, fantasies, and phobias both aspirational and horrific.

Monsters, spells, newborn babies, dead animals, and the process/practice of taxidermy–abject narratives challenge reified images of inert femininity. Giant billowing sheets, bright bulky sweatshirts, neon cellophane, duct tape, bare skin, and antlers–repurposed objects produce extensions of the body through which majestic creatures and abstract sculptures form and dissolve.‘Carnivore’ honors and exploits the roles of decoration, performance, and aesthetics in even the most ‘natural’ of processes.

Embedded in the indoor/outdoor garden space of the MAAS building, ‘Carnivore’ unfolds through a series of site-specific happenings. Please note that there is no audience participation, but audience members will be asked to follow the performance as directed by Cannonball Festival staff.

This show is presented as part of Cannonball Festival
