ECHO: Heather Gordon and Justin Tornow Special Event @ 21c Museum Hotel
Feb 23 @ 7:00 pm

A collaboration between visual artist Heather Gordon and dancer and choreographer Justin Tornow, ECHO is part of Gordon’s series The Algorithms for Intimacy, which maps interpersonal relationships through visual and performance art. Using data sets based upon personal information like geographic locations and birthplaces, and times and dates of correspondence between close friends, Gordon creates an elaborate, reflective, geometric map covering the walls and floors of 21c Durham’s vault gallery. This transformed, intimate chamber becomes a site for a performance by Tornow whose solo dance is based on the structure and origin of an echo.

Monica Bill Barnes- Happy Hour @ PSI Theatre at Durham Arts Council
Jun 6 @ 6:30 pm

Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass play two utterly ubiquitous male characters. But as female performers, they can never become these characters. In their persistent failure to become these icons, we can see something more special—two individuals desperate to wrest new meaning from our most familiar ideas of ourselves. Hosted by Robbie Saenz de Viteri, Happy Hour is a hybrid, part office party, part dance show, and part karaoke event. The happy hour continues after each performance at Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub. Join Monica and Anna for a cool one!
