Pure Surface

AARON SPENCER

Valentines
232 SW Ankeny St.
 
This new series of multimedia performance offers a little of everything—text, dance and film. It also happily leaves you alone if you’re not into it; admission is free, and the audience is non-captive. The effect at similar events, to borrow a word from the masses, has been “chill”—what everyone, everywhere, doing anything aspires to be. For the second program, dancer Grace Hwang joins poet Matthew Dickman and filmmaker Pablo Marin. Hwang has been teaching in alternative learning settings in New York and Portland since 2004, and she dances by improvising with ensembles under a set of rules. Essentially, she sees dance as a game, and she wants you to play.
