Summer, Winter, Spring
One of the MilkBar’s resident company projects for the coming year is Summer, Winter, Spring.
Led by co-curator Ian Winters, Summer, Winter, Spring is a live film and performance in three movements which explores the radically varying physical rhythms and seasons of the mid-market street corridor. The project centers on the idea of the tension, patterns, and built choreographies inherent amongst the micro-tonal movements and time scales of seasons and cities compared to the individual pedestrian moment. More details are available on Ian’s project site.
It is a collaborative effort between the MilkBar, led by co-curator Winters in a partnership with Kinetech Arts, led by Weidong Yang, Ph. D., choreographers paige starling sorvillo (blindsight), Mary Armentrout (Milkbar) and Daiane Lopes da Silva (Kinetech) and composers Heather Frasch and Evelyn Ficarra.
The project is based on a series of day-long durational performances & time-lapse films of the same at each seasonal tipping point (June 21st, 2015; Dec. 21st, 2015 and March 21st, 2016) at San Francisco Market Street’s UN / Civic Center Plaza and continuing with a final live performance integrating all 3 movements, time-lapse media, live performance and music in Spring 2016.
Core funding for the project has been provided by the Rainin Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, and private donors.
