By the Glimmer of a Half-Extinguished Light

The Southern is proud to showcase Madeline Granlund's work presented in collaboration with Lightning Rod for the 2022-2023 Partnership Program!

Performance Dates: Feb. 9, 10, and 11 at 8:00PM, Feb. 12 at 3:00PM and 7:00PM

Performance Length: Approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.

By the Glimmer of a Half-Extinguished Light is an hour-long solo choreographic piece. The work is comprised of only one body, a projector, a jug of water, and a gothic candelabra. This live art retelling of Frankenstein dissects the relationship between creator and creation, in which artist and artwork are mutually constructed. A body performs alongside its life-size doppelga╠łnger projection. They meet between live moment and recorded moment, moving together in glitches and lags. These bodies manipulate each other into odd formations as they deconstruct the process of creating something living. The lines between them blur and they become uncanny versions of each other; they become obscured and multiplied, reflected through rippling water and faded through flickering candlelight. A world emerges made of old materials and new, and from it comes a hybrid body; a stitched-together creature made of self and other and both sides of everything. 

Masks will be required to attend this event and available at the Southern's Box Office.

This show contains strobe lights and fog. The 3:00PM performance on Feb. 12 will be sensory friendly with strobes and fog removed.
