What happens when a body must function outside of linear time and normative progression from point A to point B?

Opening < > Speed is a collaborative installation and performance project by artist and performer Keke Brown, dancer Jerron Herman, dancer iele paloumpis, interdisciplinary artist and choreographer Marissa Perel, and video artist Marin Sander-Holzman. This group of artists and dancers with disabilities seeks to generate such choreography through dialogues about how we move through the world, opening up our experiences to one another as an antidote to speed and other normative expectations of physical production. In the month of March, Keke, Jerron, iele, and Marissa will engage in a studio practice centered on these dialogues. They will ask each other questions related to how they move, what gives them pleasure in their bodies, what doesn't, how their bodies and identities are perceived in the world, and how they do or do not experience belonging, solidarity and support. They will create choreographic scores out of these dialogues, shaping an installation in the theater of University Settlement that will house both the performers and the audience in an open, inviting space.

The performance will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and will be followed by a conversation with the audience and performers.
