May 21, 28 // Gregory Barnett // “I WILL TURN MY WEATHERVANE OF A BODY INTO A DIVINING ROD”
We will view our limbs as powerful tools capable of opening roads and fighting the good fights. We will consider emotional overwhelm an untapped power well we are not only capable of navigating through but benefiting from. We will understand choreography as a series of promises. We may high kick. We will trust that our efforts and our desires hold weight. We will think and we will move.
Gregory Barnett creates signs, altars, and dances and believes he is better for it. His choreography works with duration, repetition, and mimetic movement in an effort to pinpoint the juncture between lineage (memory) and prayer (desire) where potential alchemic growth is at its most potent. His work has been shown at The Moca Geffen, The Hammer Museum, Human Resources, REDCAT, The Getty Villa, Highways Performance Space, etc. Recent work includes “Edenic Idyllic: I Can Take You To Heaven, Let Me Take You To Heaven.”, a six day marathon of one hundred personal single viewer reinterpretations of the adolescent closet kissing game Seven Minutes In Heaven, and “If This Were Any More Camp You Would Need A Tent. It Isn’t Real But It’s What I Want. Our VistaVision Dream Dance.”, an overnight Michael Kidd inspired hysterical-elation-athon set in a loosely replicated soundstage of the 1959 musical, Lil’ Abner. Currently he is continuing work on the dance solo, “It’s Been A Year And You’re Still Dead”, after an initial showing at PAM Residences last fall. Based on B-movie horror films and the increasing amount of death and loss in his personal life, inconsolable griefs and irreconcilable loss are confronted as Gregory performs the choreographies of “Our Ingenue”, “sacr(ed)ificial lamb”, Ever Weeping Memorizer Ghost”, and THE INFERNALATOR.
