Tradewinds Signs Rally
October 19, 2013 - 5:00pm - 10:00pm

Tradewinds Signs Rally is an open-ended choreographic, sculpture and light experiment along Route 66. Drawing from road signs and placards, color guards, flag corps, parades and military pageantry, we give rise to deliberations about power, control and empowerment. The performance contrasts free-form movement with rigid, grid-based choreography in order to see what kinds of visual phenomenon arise from varying interactions of bodies, props and lights.  We salute those rare sign spinners who heroically reassert themselves in eye-catching, crazy, free-form median dances. 

Tradewinds Signs Rally is partially supported by Friends of the Orphan Signs, Black Rock Arts Foundation, UNM Arts Learning Laboratory (ALL), The UNM Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) and produced in collaboration with students enrolled in the UNM Art Studio course, Waste.
