Studio/LAB: Artists in Residence
THIS IS SPONSORED BY JUICY FRUIT
Studio/LAB Residency Premiere
Do you wanna-
Do you wanna-
Do you wanna see me dance?
"This is Sponsored by Juicy Fruit" is a collaborative, multi-media performance that asks what it means to claim pleasure as power. The artists reject puritanical messaging that upholds social hierarchies, instead recognizing and celebrating their humanness by choosing to pursue their innate drives and personal imperatives. Together, they have developed a queer salad of hedonism, defiance, and self-satisfaction to stuff your hungry mouths.
Saturday, August 18, 7 & 9 p.m.
In this project we are seeking to explore hedonism as an applied philosophy by creating sensory experiments that satisfy instinctual desires. From this research, we will develop a shared experience of indulgence with the audience. This project will address pleasure as an integral facet of the human experience and challenge traditional ideas of morality. Our collaborative team will be made up of H/\rvey, Dienae Hunter, and Brandon Trieu. We will be working together to create an interdisciplinary creative moment consisting of multimedia, original sound, and performance

H/\arvey has created sound scores for multiple dance works throughout the valley and enjoys the collaborative process.

In doing so, more creative possibilities arise and H/\rvey’s perspective of the works potential outcome continues to expand. The artistic process is constantly evolving, being pushed and pulled by the ideas of multiple minds at work. There is never a dull moment for H/\rvey when collaborating with like-minded artists.
