Genre: Experimental

Keywords: arts & artists, body, dance, music

BY NIGHT - NO STILLNESS is a study in black, where black becomes a radiant space within which one finds inner light. Taking its cues from Rothko's last paintings, BY NIGHT - NO STILLNESS homes in on the luminosity that emerges when you enter a dark place. Dancer Miriam Parker and percussionist Hamid Drake perform within a video projection of a black and yellow painting, on Parker's body, by the painter/filmmaker, Katy Martin. The piece explores movement in relation to the painted gesture and fragmented, dreamlike sculptural space.
