I've been laying low for a while, plotting my next moves, considering what it means to be an artist/educator in the Never Normal administration, but this weekend I'm surfacing to give pre-show talks before Italian choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni's work, Folk-s will you still love me tomorrow, at the ICA Boston on Friday February 17 and Saturday February 18. The talk intends to orient audiences to the context of the work, providing a window into the artist's intention and putting the work in a continuum of other works that rely on the gracious attention of an audience and the deep and intense labor of performers. Preparing for this also has me listening to the Shirelles big hit, as written by Carole King:
Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?
Hope you'll venture out to see some bodies attempt to record and extend some history.
Tickets can be had through the ICA BOSTON website (click here)
Pre Show talks begin 30 minutes before curtain (7:30pm)
