Acts of Unseeing

Choreographer/performance artist Helanius J. Wilkins and visual artist Joyce Ellen Weinstein reunite for the creation and performance of “Acts of Unseeing” a performance art installation project that shapes and shifts notions of space and time while probing what is seen and perhaps what is not seen. A project that engages all the senses, it triggers thoughts and reflections about trust, self-sacrifice, vulnerability, passivity, courage, and power. This work comes out of combining two projects: Joyce Ellen Weinstein’s “Denial Scroll” a limited edition, silk screen and linoleum block print created in 2009 that is a continuous scroll 14 inches high and 24 feet long; and Helanius J. Wilkins’ “Unspoken” a solo dance work created in 2014 that emerges from his ever evolving approach to art-making. Rather than beginning with choreography or the creation of set movements, he is allowing his own bodily actions and sensory engagement to guide the process as well as the performance. Together these works draw dynamic parallels while blurring the lines between performer and audience.
*This performance will be followed by a post discussion with both Helanius J.Wilkins and Joyce Ellen Weinstein.
