Mon., Sept. 8, 8:30 p.m., Tue., Sept. 9, 6:30 p.m. and Wed., Sept. 10, 6:30 p.m. 2008
In Um Solo (A Solo), Portugese artist and dancer Tiago Guedes is concerned with how the quiet moments of our lives define who we are. Setting himself in a void of white, Guedes uses a few ordinary props to develop his space. The manipulation of brown paper bags, sketches and phrases marked onto the walls, and simple choreography help create Guedes’ meditation on the inner life and landscape. Um Solo is straight-ahead performance art that will likely lead to lengthy discussions over drinks at the Works.
