WHAT IT IS

WE ARE GENIUS is a collaborative night of performance and community dialogue. It offers the audience an opportunity to experience Alice Falling, a 20-minute solo in the last stages of development by Lois Brown featuring dancer Candice Pike, as well as excerpts from Lois Brown’s I AM A GENIUS DOES ANYONE HERE KNOW ME? Lois and composer James O’Callaghan will discuss their improvisation process with the audience – using plastic bags, book, foil and other found objects. Participants from the WE ARE GENIUS WORKSHOP will showcase their explorations with objects. Following performances, audience members will be led through a moderated discussion by artist Andrea Cooper with invited guests. The discussion will explore ideas around about disability arts, the power of objects, repurposing objects, memory/dementia, boredom/patience in relationship to curiosity/joy, and improvisation in live performance.
