The Eagan Art House invites you to submit original choreographic works to be performed as part of the opening event of Momentary Certainties 2022, an outdoor visual art installation which examines the intertwined themes of ephemerality and permanence. Works should reflect on the themes of the exhibition:
On ephemerality: The nature of performance is ephemeral, “something that lasts a very short time.” Can you consider impermanence in your movement? How do you represent fragility or decay? What does it mean to perform in a landscape which is ever-changing?
On permanence: In these unpredictable times, how do the ideas of steadiness and strength inform your work? How can dance be a stabilizing presence? Consider constancy (of love, of nature) in your movement.
Works should be 5-20 minutes long and will be performed 1-2 times over the course of the event. The performance location is outside, on a grass lawn.
