Event Details

SATURDAY, SUNDAY,  OCTOBER 19, 20, 12-5 PM

Inhabitation brings four/five professional dancers to HFA to engage in a series of dance scores with the environmental space and pedestrians. The dance scores invite the public to choose how to engage with the dance be it: become a mover in the dance; to offer directions to the dancers or to observe and then reflect on paper with drawing or words. The dance scores are simple structures that are people friendly and encourage social engagement. These dance scores also encourage people to define their personal space within the social space and environmental space. Using string as a prop, we explore a grid, the perimeter, and personal spaces to consider how humans use space.

Events for All Ages, Free and Open to the Public

ABOUT HABITAT for ARTISTS

Founded by Simon Draper, Habitat for Artists (HFA) is a collective project that uses the idea of the artist’s studio as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities. The “habitats” are small, temporary, 6’ x 6’ studios installed for experiencing art and connecting with the process of artists engaging in creative work. HFA invites artists to work in these small, temporary studios. While exploring their own creative process, artists engage in active dialogues with a new audience. All are invited to participate in this new interaction and discussion about art, the artist’s role, as well as topics which are pertinent or relevant to the community.

 

Support for Habitat for Artists at WAAM is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

Additional support provided by the Klock Kingston Foundation,
Hyman J. & Florence Hammerman Family Foundation & individual donors.

HFA @ WAAMFounded by Simon Draper, HFA is a collective project that uses the idea of the artist’s studio as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities. The “habitats” are small, temporary, 6’ by 6’ studios installed at a variety of locations: some highly visible to the local community; others, more unexpected venues for experiencing art or connecting with the process of artists engaging in creative work. HFA invites artists to work in these small, temporary studios. While exploring their own creative process, artists engage in active dialogues with a new audience.
