August 5, 7:30 PM–8:30 PM
at Main Window
Main Window is excited to present the premiere of Pinch Back, a movement-based performance by artist Louisa Pancoast.
Pinch Back was created as a companion piece for the current site-specific installation at Main Window, Inexterior, by Evan Paul English. In her performance, Pancoast considers how we construct our sense of identity – whether through our physical appearance, posturing, or material effects—and seeks to physicalize English’s elision between the corporeal body and the topographical body, sourcing movement from plant root patterns, popular lifestyle magazines from the 1970s, and the landscape of the paintings themselves.
Pinch Back will be presented live in Main Window on Thursday, August 5; Thursday, August 19; and Friday, September 10. Each event comprises three 10-minute performances, starting at 7:30 PM, 7:50 PM, and 8:10 PM.
FREE and open to the public. Please reserve through Eventbrite as space is limited.
