Three Minutes of Pork and Shoving
“One of my favorite dances of 2004.”
-Tere O’Connor on Fetish
“The joining of HIJACK with Heron resulted in a wonderfully madcap exploration”
– Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine
3 Minutes of Pork and Shoving is an eclectic evening of inventive and humorous contemporary dance from New Orleans-based PS122 veteran Scott Heron and Minneapolis-based choreographic collaborators HIJACK (Kristin Van Loon and Arwen Wilder). All met up in Russia in 2002, bought black market high heels, made a dance in a coat room, and called it “3 Minutes of Pork and Shoving.”
The evening includes Fetish, Speculum, inspired by the voyeuristic photography of Sophie Calle; the premiere of Stacked, Double Cow in which movement patterns emulate the pathways of florid script; and Louisa Street, a minimalist solo against a slide show of every house on the even-side of New Orleans’ Louisa Street one year after Katrina.
Approximate running time: 75 minutes
