Public Performance of "The Sundance Kid is Beautiful"
Date: October 19 October 26, 2015
Location: Todd Theater
Christopher Knowles is a multidisciplinary artist whose work has had a visible influence on American postmodern performance, poetry, and visual art since the 1970s. The Sundance Kid is Beautiful presents Knowles’s work in a staged performance environment that incorporates many of his diverse approaches, including dance, acting, sculpture, music, text, and visual artwork from various periods of his long career. During the sixty-minute solo work, Knowles creates moments of dramatic stillness and motion in different scale registers that explore specific aspects of his unique world. A newspaper landscape containing Knowles’s alarm clock collection, recent sculptures, and a finely tuned lighting and sound environment evokes themes surrounding the measurement of time, communication, sign systems, and popular culture.
