Contour: Performance Works
by Joseph Ravens and Nicole LeGette

Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m., Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
Admission $12, $10 Students and Seniors

LeGette and Ravens present two new ensemble works that embrace elements of butoh dance and performance art. Tulips and cellos are objects of infatuation that materialize as energy, imagery, sound, and silence. LeGette’s movement stems from sonic and visual play with the violincello. Raven’s study of tulips is laced with history, hope, and mass hysteria.

Fehrenkamp rounds out the evening with her legion of Hollis devotees known as the “MATTresses.” This evening’s MATTerial is intended for MATTure audiences.
