WORLD WITHOUT A HEAD, involving both visual art and dance, reflects the cross-pollination of these different practices. The performance speaks to the nature of our being 'headless', mindless, and thoughtless when it comes to our daily interactions with the very world that sustains us.
Co-directed with choreographer, Wendy Osserman featuring music by Alyce Santoro. Utilizing a freestanding set as both scrim and canvas, Olson and dancers, Cori Kresge and Cara Heerdt create illusions of shadow, movement, sound and painted line. The piece builds on their previous performances on stage, in a gallery, and in a public garden, combining sculptural components and costumes comprised almost entirely of recycled materials.
