Peter Redgrave and Shana Palmer will be performing a duet, an improvised combination of music and movement. These two inter-dimensional artists have known each other for many years, but this will be the first time they have performed together.
Rounding out the night is a collaboration between Mia Ferm & Midori Hirose called Champagne.
Peter Redgrave is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. He is interested in limits, interruption, narrative, and what it is to be human. His current work involves physical exploration and presentation of the body – a theater of movement. In 2010, after an ankle injury and modern dance class recuperation therapy, he began performing as a movement artist. Since then, he has taken many classes and workshops with people like Lynne Price, Tadashi Endo, and Naoko Maeshiba. Peter has performed with Effervescent Collective, Deep Vision Dance Company, Alex D’Agostino/Noelle Tolbert, Matt Williams, Vervet Dance, and Lynne Price. He works most regularly with Khristian Weeks.
Shana Palmer is a multimedia artist and musician, who uses art and music to transcend polarities. Her music bends the threshold of ambient, psych and noise. Her most recent solo music project, Sentient Beings is a cacophony of electronic surges of synth and samples. Previous projects include the all female post punk trio Sickie Sickie, solo project Childe Bride, and a Baltimore based duo under the moniker Secret Secrets. She has shared stage with Tony Conrad, Jandek, Zeena Parkins and Metalux. She been a featured artist in residence in Reykjavik, Iceland, the Los Solos Series, and performed at the High Zero and Transmodern Festivals.
