Tamar Ettun One Thing Leads to Another

Recess at Kidd Yellin MAP

One Thing Leads to Another is a working installation and multi-media performance, revolving around a overturned hot air balloon, reanimated through narrative, dance and shifting physicality. This project from artist Tamar Ettun will abstract vignettes from The Odyssey, taking the text's themes of labor, gifting and movement of the itinerant body, while incorporating dance traditions from Trisha Brown, Yvonne Rainer, and Ohad Naharin's GAGA. 

The performance, which will occur inside the inflated balloon, will last two hundred and forty minutes, referencing The Odyssey's 24 chapters. The audience can come and go as they like, and is encouraged to move inside and outside the balloon to witness the narrative evolve into an animate sculpture, featuring video projection, live music, and choreography from seven performers, including the artist.  Performers will move from one end of the balloon to another, each making an effort to complete specific tasks while negotiating the physical impediment of others blocking their path. Once all tasks have been completed, all performers will rotate 90 degrees and repeat.

Performers: Danielle Agami, Netta Yerushalmy, Luke Murphy, Yoni Kretzmer, Jaeeun Lee, Tamar Ettun.

One Thing Leads to Another is organized and presented by Recess.
