Live at the Forum Lounge:


Brody Condon: Without Sun

Thursday, November 4, 7 & 8 pm

Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum

Admission: FREE

Based on an altered-state-inspired video, Brody Condon’s Without Sun: Modification is a trippy dance and spoken-word performance

Presented by CAF.

Derived from an earlier video of the same name, Without Sun is an edited compilation of “found online performances” of people on psychedelic substances. Utilizing the video as a choreography script, Condon worked with dancer Linda Austin and actor Russell Edge to re-interpret the erratic movements and verbalizations of self-published “trippers” through the precision and expressivity of contemporary dance. This treatment creates a rigorous and exquisite set of gestures that provide an intriguing interpretation of the video’s authentic experiential movements. Parental discretion advised.

This performance may not be suitable for children.

Brody Condon received an M.F.A. from the University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA. His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Biennial 2004, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; Santa Monica Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; and Machine Project, Los Angeles, CA.
