a colLaboration with RAWDANCE
Created in conjunction with
Counting the Hours: Art, Data, and the Untold Stories of Women’s Work
and RAWdance Company’s Concept Series 26
RAWdance and The Carrying Stones Project collaborated on a companion dance work choreographed by Co-Artistic Director Katie Wong for the opening reception of the Counting the Hours exhibition. The piece features a quartet of female movement artists and is inspired by the subjects, process, and visual art works of Counting the Hours.
The performance activated the space in and around the suspended portion of the “Dawline” sculpture. The movement artists transformed the floor elements of the sculpture— 37 stones representing Dawline’s unpaid labor hours— first into a physical boundary and then into an abstract depiction of women’s workloads.
