Drawing from the cache of video projects and documentation that Half Straddle has been creating since the company’s inception in 2008, this new presentation juxtaposes previously unscreened excerpts from the Half Straddle video archive in an installation format.
“Cadences” functions as both documentation and a deliberate poetics of particular performers and performances as the people and work have moved—and move—through time. The piece becomes a record, then loop, of experiments, physical changes, and an ongoing interrogation of a kind of community creating together.
Featuring Jess Barbagallo, Eliza Bent, Becca Blackwell, Enver Chakartash, Emily Davis, Dylan Dawson, Gracie Gardner, Erin Markey, Hanna Lea Novak, Paul Pontrelli, Naomi Raddatz, Julia Sirna-Frest, Lucy Taylor
