CLOSE LOOK: a new solo performance series presented by FloorSpace Studio
Co-curated by Julie Rothschild and Meg Madorin, CLOSE LOOK performance series aims to promote dance and performance off the stage. Housed within FloorSpace Studio in North Boulder, solo artists are given one evening, 400 sq ft, an honorarium, studio access for rehearsals, and production support to make and share their work. The intimate nature of the venue provides immediate confines from which to negotiate one's artistic freedom. An intention of the series is to witness how each artist navigates these challenges differently.
CLOSE LOOK presents artists who embody diversity in all of its forms, from ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, sexual orientation, movement forms and performing arts mediums. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the public and this diverse group of artists to engage within close quarters.
Julie Rothschild performs Gestural Sketches. Within the cube-like frame of the studio; in relationship to a selection of porcelain objects crafted by Boulder Artist, Liz Quan, Julie shares her decades long practice of dancing with what is present. This practice serves her in the act of sussing out material for her performance projects; and, as in this performance, is the work itself.
