About the Grant

$15,000 to support Car (MAP 2007), a movement installation that takes place in and around a car, created by choregrapher Kate Watson Wallace with video installation artist Ricardo Rivera and an ensemble of six Philadelphia dancers.

About the Project

CAR is a movement installation for three audience members at a time, that takes place in and around a moving vehicle. Using the landscape of car culture (parking lots, garages, gas stations, streets and drive-thrus) audience members move and are moved through a series of movement and video installations that inhabit the at once private and public space that is a car. CAR investigates the body of performer/driver, the body of witness/passenger, and the body of the car itself. CAR explores how we communicate when we are in-cased in a small piece of metal that can speed, stop, lock us in, blow us up, or crash at any moment.
