Free

An informal showing of performative sculpture by
Brit Biddle ’19, Dominic Malia ’21, and Chang Zhang ’20
Friday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 4 at 7:00 p.m.

What happens when sculpture meets live performance?

Students in AR/TD268 Design Thinking Studio: Performative Sculpture explored this question through the design and fabrication of body modifications based on themes explored from personal life experience.

Together with professional choreographer Molly Gawler, Colby faculty Bradley Borthwick (Art) and Jim Thurston (Theater and Dance) worked with Brit Biddle ’19, Dominic Malia ’21, and Chang Zhang ’20 to create body-specific sculptures and solo performance works. Each student designed all lighting and atmospheric effects for a classmate’s technical production and final stage expression. The informal showing in Strider Theater becomes an important process moment where student-artists share their art through choreography and light on stage.

Free tickets will be available at the door. The running time is approximately 45 minutes.
