Secondary Surface Rendered is the latest work created by the Lower Left Performance Collective.
It premiered in the Crowley Theater in Marfa, Texas on July 9, 2013.
Not only it is an engaging site-specific performance work, but it is also a good example of collaborative art making. Consisting of five sections, two of which occur simultaneously, Secondary Surface Rendered shuns the normative proscenium arrangement of the theater and allows the audience to create its own spatial relation to the performances. This work is also an investigation into blurring the lines between performance and installation work.
Using idea of landscape from our work last summer in Berlin and Budapest as a point of departure, we wanted to investigate how to use the physical actions of dance to create, affect, and influence an other beyond the immediate human form. Not only does each section within Secondary Surface Rendered use the human form to create a dance event investigating the movement potentiality of the body, but each section also shows the effects of the body on the space and objects surrounding it. The progression of the performance through the space of the theater simulates the dis-covering of the human body in relation to its environment.
