Interval/Habitat: 22 Boerum

For the first in a series of three installation-as-performance works for ISSUE Project Room’s 2017 Residency, Interval/Habitat was presented as a reception environment with embedded performances from artist Madeline Hollander and writer Charity Coleman. The work shifts between the theatrical and mundane – blurring performative and social atmospheres – and invites the audience to explore possibilities that may emerge from interacting in a co-composed dynamic space. Interlocuting performances establish key narrative shifts within the piece, altering the social fabric of the room by presenting actions that go beyond expected boundaries of interaction. Here, the dynamic conditions of the space become a collaborator with audience and performers alike.

Interval/Habitat was presented at ISSUE Project Room’s 22 Boerum Place theater in Brooklyn, on April 22, 2017 as part of Byron Westbrook’s 2017 Residency with ISSUE Project Room
