Chris Evans on cello with effects pedals
Chris will play two sets of meditative improvisations. Visitors are invited to experience the art installations with the added element of sound.
Chris Evans is an interdisciplinary artist trained in music and dance, who works in and through performance broadly defined. Through collaborations with choreographers, dancers, musicians, visual artists, and poets she seeks to extend the performance to encompass the space, audience, and artist. Her practice explores where the lines between dance, music, space, artist, and audience blur. Through her work Chris aims to create moments of community that revere, challenge and lovingly hold our imaginations, bodies, stories, and expression. Chris has studied with with Roscoe Mitchell, Alex Kelly, Shelly Senter, Abigail Hosein, and Randee Paufve and collaborated with choreographers Byb Chanel Bibene, Sheena Johnson, Lizz Roman, musicians from WaterSaw and Ark of Bones.

Bandelion ensemble performance
Bandelion director Eric Kupers and ensemble members will respond to artist installations through sound and music. The ensemble will explore the installation spaces during ArtComplex regular open hours 1-4, then the exploration will evolve into a performance beginning at 5pm. Visitors are invited to move through and experience the ArtComplex installations with the added elements of sound and movement. Bandelion’s works are both performative and an expression of community ritual. Performances dismantle the distinction between artist and ordinary person, inviting the audience to both see themselves reflected in and become a part of the experience of live art.
