"sweet, rotten, sweet" is a visceral communal ritual examining what it means to see, be seen, and bear witness to the passage of time. In this video installation, Piacenza has crafted a visual and sonic landscape that utilizes dance and performance to illuminate the human struggle to find meaning within an absurd world. Reimagining past choreographic works that deal with the nature of touch and the inevitability of mortality, sweet, rotten, sweet aims to strip away extraneous layers in order to discover moments of stillness within an overstimulated, disoriented psyche.
The next step in a creative evolution, "sweet, rotten, sweet" re-conceives material from Piacenzas recent work "The Event," into a new realm of video installation and gallery performance.
In addition to the installation, there will be live performances throughout the month. Staged in an intimate setting, with 25 audience members and four performers, "sweet, rotten, sweet" uses an up-close and personal setting to awaken audiences to the present moment.
