Melinda Ring’s Forgetful Snow, a triptych, comprised of two durational performances and an hour-long dance, investigates the transcendent possibilities of body and mind. By day, performers in the installations The Landscape and Memory (of Snow) Machine labor at searching for landscapes, retrieving lost moments of time and archiving the accumulating results. These simple tasks involving the body, video, and language are quietly focused and mysterious. In the evening, the dance is performed without clothing and accompaniment to strip it of layered-on meaning and emotion. Presented instead is an intimate and formally complex choreography with elusive performative demands and textures.
Each day of the show from 4 to 7 PM visitors can view the two durational performances, The Landscape and Memory (of Snow) Machine. These pieces are set within the main gallery space and three smaller adjacent rooms. These two are followed each evening at 8 PM by performances of the dance Forgetful Snow, by the New York performers. The show runs for 7 performance days, includes 8 performers (4 from New York, 4 local), and is free to the public.
