Call for SculptFest Performers: Expanded Strand

"Expanded Strand", a sculptural performance piece will be showing during the opening of SculptFest2018 at the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center scheduled for 5:00 to 8:00 PM on Saturday, September 8.

Amy Königbauer, the artist creating this work, is looking for 6 performing bodies to be a part of this show. The performance on the day of the event will be from 5:30 to 7:30pm. There will be one rehearsal prior to the event (time and location tbd based on the needs of the performers).

For this piece you do not need any dance or performance experience, and there will be no auditions. It is preferable that you feel comfortable moving with other people, sharing weight with them, and are willing to experiment with becoming performing bodies in a "living sculpture."

Please contact Amy for more information.

Amy Königbauer’s artwork is about relationships and she has been pursuing ways to facilitate exchanges between people with the work that she creates. Using vulnerability as a tool to allow for deeper connection, she considers the physical nature of energy that is being exchanged while people work together. The process and production of her work often lends itself to ephemeral, intangible experiences, ​but she is still highly interested in the artistry involved in making, especially in creating work with others. ​Participation in her work is intended to reveal a sense of humanity, to heal or address the cultural wounds that run deep within us, and to allow us to slow down and appreciate the delicacy of human experience. Amy holds an MFA from Transart Institute, she became a teacher at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and created multimedia photographs at The University of Michigan during her BFA. She is also currently working as an educator to transform public schools by giving students more autonomy. Amy was born and raised near Detroit, Michigan and has lived in Vermont since 2008.
