PWNW Founder & Artistic Director Linda Austin performs new versions of two of her earliest solos: Recipe: A Reading Test (1983) and Raw Material (1985). Both solos reveal Linda’s early fascination with puzzle-like structures and deconstructions and the how the life of the socialized body, the life of language, and the life of objects all intersect.
LINDA AUSTIN DANCE:
PWNW Artistic Director Linda Austin tries out another work-in-progress excerpt of Ordinary Devotions, a work set to premiere as an evening-length version in 2019. Ordinary Devotions is a meditative solo of tenderness towards the aging body, a tactile apprehension of the world to hand.
A hyperactive landscape saturated and contaminated by shards of movement, image, and language gives way to a more spacious and meditative world. For an intimate audience in an immersive environment, this is an in-progress version of a full-evening piece. Part 3 of Linda Austin’s “(Un)Made” triptych of works.
