The Jenni House Waltz: a dance and video performance by Renée Lear and Aimée Dawn Robinson Thursday July 26 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm FREE Event at Jenni House in Shipyard’s Park (near the Fireweed Market grounds) Light refreshments will be served. Renée Lear and Aimée Dawn Robinson are the Jenni House artist in residence for the month of July. This performance is part of the Jenni House Artist Residency Program. During our residency at Jenni House this month, we’ve been finding a dance and video hybrid – a non-hierarchical combination of two mediums and practices – an experiment in co-authorship and reoccurrence. The architecture and surrounding of Jenni House provided a common point of reference. We decided to film Aimée dancing with the outside of the building, then project the footage on the inside of the building, thereby inverting the building, turning it outside-in. The Jenni House Waltz is an accumulation of three’s – three cameras, three camera positions on the dancing body, three turns around the Jenni House, three layers of video, the threes of a waltz. We gratefully acknowledge the support of: Arts Fund, Culture Quest, Yukon Arts Centre, Jazz Yukon, Music Yukon, Kicksled Readings and the City of Whitehorse.
