Out of Site Chicago 2015 is now in week 4 of its public performance programming in and around the Wicker Park-Bucktown neighborhood. Over the past 4 days, Michal Samama (Chicago) has presented a slow, durational performance entitled "Sidewalking." Samama responds to the streets of Chicago through extended movements, whistles and found objects. Out of Site Chicago Director, Carron Little notes, "She (Samama) started the week at 7am and whatever time and location she ends each day she will start again the next day." Samama concludes her performance tomorrow (Friday, August 21st). If you are in the area, follow the whistles!
The summer is quite possibly the busiest (and liveliest!) time for performance artists. Across the globe, performance festivals, fairs and live-art series awaken the heat-hazed city streets. This weekend Time, Body, Space, Objects continues its programming on Spectacle Island (Boston, MA) with works by PPL, a Brooklyn-based performance duo (Esther Neff & Brian McCorkle).
I am excited that PPL is a part of the TBSO4 roster this year, especially considering the performance location. I reached out to PPL to learn more about their upcoming performance concepts and am delighted to share our conversation with you below. Enjoy and head out to Boston this Saturday, August 22nd! - Quinn
