"More than a trace" is CabinFever's upcoming installation to premiere alongside Hyde Park Art Center's new exhibition, "The Art of Being Dangerous," on September 15th. Based on a combination of nterviews with the artists exhibiting at this sho, an exploration of heir work, and the specific lens throug which CabinFever artists see the world, artistic director Elana Jacobs and her dancers will ask the question, "how can I love you?" Jacobs believes that when we respond to an artist and their work, we can't help but express love. "More than a trace" consists of ersonal storie, artistic expression, and the act of seeing the human as whole. CabinFever will create 19 tiny movement phrases dedicated to each of the rtists. Through this process, the company hope to mimic the energetic exchange that transpires between the viewer and artist at the museum – in which the art makes an impression on the body that lingers far beyond the exhibition space.
This weekend workshop is for artists and creatives of all types (writers, dancers, musicians, filmakers, performers, etc.) with the purpose of finding our core strength and connecting to our creative trajectories. Each session will include Pilates exercises, guided meditation, cardio movement, writing prompts, personal goal setting, and community-building with a variety of other artists. We will examine where our blocks are in the mind and in the body, and how to break through to a healthy artistic practice. In this April workshop, we will work on "spring cleaning" the old habits and stories stored in the body/mind that no longer serve us. Space is limited, RSVP to book a spot.
Every Friday in January & February 2018, we will be continuing the Art & Core series at Outerspace Studios. A continuous exploration of our creative trajectories, artistic support, and core strength. We will also try to understand the connection between the mind and body in the context of being in artist. Art & Core will serve as a weekly check-in for Chicago artists of all kinds in an effort to lift each other up in our perspective pursuits. Details TBD
