FREE. No RSVP necessary. Choreographed and performed by Lucinda Segar and Tatyana Tenenbaum, with live sound provided by Rafael Cohen.

MakeShift is a forty-minute collaborative performance piece that uses modern dance, video footage from a 2008 site-specific improvisation on the docks of a Vermont lake, and improvised live sound. The work is an attempt to explore and recreate a rural environment inside an urban one. By staging the p­erformance throughout the space, Segar and Tenenbaum will ask the audience to consider how shifting landscapes affect the body. The performance is followed by a Q&A and reception.

This is the first time Cohen has worked with Segar and Tenenbaum, who have previously collaborated on numerous projects in Ohio, New York, and Massachusetts. All three studied dance at Oberlin College.
