Machera Series 2
This piece was performed at the Chicago Artist Coalition. In this installment, a wooden dance floor was built. Its top was black with a crisp white rectangle of powder in the center. The white rectangle went about 12” from the border, creating a black frame. In the middle of the white rectangle there were three pair of red heels. During the opening night, the performance was presented three times. When it was time for the performance to start, performers came to the center of the dance floor put on the heels and Latin music played. The performers danced a choreographed and a free style dance. During the second performance a fourth performer joined. In every performance, the performers left the red heels on the platform, when they stepped off. At the end of the opening the dance floor was transformed: the white rectangle kept the traces of the movement, and the red heels were resting in the middle with spots from the white powder on them. The platform remind as a testimony.
