An Afternoon of Conversation and Performance: Ranu Mukherjee, Judy Dater and Hope Mohr Dance

di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art

October 13, 2018
Time: 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Price: $10 general / $5 member

Join us for a special afternoon of conversation and performance in conjunction with Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times Part 2. Presented alongside exhibition artist Ranu Mukherjee’s project exploring the topic of health and how societal events impact our wellbeing, the event will be structured in two parts:

2:30 – 3:45pm: Mukherjee and di Rosa collection artist Judy Dater kick things off with a discussion addressing their shared interests in working with time, bodies, and landscape to address societal concerns.

4:00 – 5:30pm: Following a brief intermission, the event will continue with a special performance by Hope Mohr Dance activating Mukherjee’s Succession (2018), a multi-faceted installation created in collaboration with the artist for the exhibition. The installation and performance feature new choreography responding to the 2017 North Bay wildfires, developed through the dancers’ physical engagement with the burned and recovering landscape on the di Rosa property. The performance is a collaborative visceral response to the conditions of the aftermath and our intimate connection to the ground we stand (and dance) on. Featuring dancers Karla Quintero, Suzette Sagisi and Jame Selna, and audio composition by Mike Maurillo.

The program will conclude with a conversation and Q&A between Mukherjee and Mohr discussing their collaboration on the installation and performance.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes in advance to allot for shuttle service from admissions to Gallery 2. Guests who arrive more than 45 minutes in advance will be asked to pay general admission.
