In this exhibition, New York-based choreographer, performer, and writer Will Rawls (b. 1978, Boston, MA) draws from his interests in stop-motion animation and the relationship between language and dance to grapple with the conditions of living amid crisis. Working with a group of performers, Rawls will create a stop-motion studio where time and movement slow, offering an opportunity to interrogate tropes of linear narrative, character, and apparatuses of visual capture. Rawls’s exhibition takes inspiration from the work of Guyanese writer Wilson Harris and his surrealist novel The Infinite Rehearsal (1993), the sensations elicited from the novel’s fantastical language serving as a conduit through which to address the ghosts of historical trauma while imagining the potential for living in the presence of catastrophe.
