Six and Four Articulations Project Collaboration
We are six emerging artists who have joined forces as a performing arts collective dubbed 6 and 4 Articulations. We have shared, spread and developed our work in a seven week tour that spanned the United States, starting in the Northeast, moving west then back home through the southern region of the country, We are all Alfred University Art and Design graduates; accordingly we shared a background in the visual arts, whether it be print, painting, video art or sculpture. Our venues addressed topics of gender, conversation, relationship, aesthetic and shape. Our movement, derived-form modern gymnastics, ballet and break dancing, can be classified as alternative and rides the line between performance art and contemporary and postmodern dancing. The performances employed the devices of costumes, props, and theater to create engaging works that sculpturally carves out the performance space in a series of solos, duets and troupe performances. We presented one work as an open-ended continuous piece that derived it’s inspiration from the tour itself and each area we visited.
