By My Own Hand, Part 1: GHOSTING, is the first in a five-part series of performances.Toying with the perceived power of systems we use to define ourselves, such as astrology, psychotherapy, and dream interpretation, Hankins coyly points to the futility of attempting to uphold a fixed persona in life or performance.

touch system ✿✿✿ – open studio showing || Blue McCall + Jamondria Harris + ensemble

Free or ticket by donation.
Fundraiser event—all proceeds go towards honorariums for ensemble dancers.

touch system ✿✿✿ is an emerging choreographic work by Blue McCall, taking place within a six-channel sound installation by Jamondria Harris (meroitic), featuring custom tech coded by Ashely Ona Bott. The dance shifts between high-impact physicality and moments of sculptural stillness to explore tensions between embodiment and image making.
Come celebrate the conclusion of touch system’s rehearsal process, and launch of our performance season during this open studio sharing.
Guests will receive a ltd. edition cyberpunk print with access codes to touch system’s performance dates in the experimental music and art scene.

Marissa Rae Niederhauser


During time spent visiting her father in a dementia care facility choreographer Marissa Rae Niederhauser became curious about the correlations between Alzheimer’s Disease and General Relativity. She is joined by composer Juniana Lanning and actor Daniel Shaw for a devised theater work contemplating the slippery qualities of time, intangibility of self/relationships and the myth of memory amidst a tangle of chairs, record players, paper airplanes and unspooled cassette tapes.
