a 6-month NY Fellowship to meet choreographers and dancers, partake in dance workshops, and explore the citys live art scene
Vinson Fraley and Tajee will meet in a hotel room in Manhattan. The two complete strangers will perform action scripts on designated hours. A photographer will be in the room to document their actions, freeze the time, and design an unhindered flying route for future viewers. “The first time I entered the room, it did not feel real, it felt like I was in a dream, like none of it was happening.” Ghost Mountain Ghost Shovel and Aaron Thompson met every Monday for interviews in Brooklyn Public Library or at the café in a supermarket. The interviews were written on a rather tiny notebook. Once, Thompson took out five dollar bills with an identical serial number. He used one of them to pay for frosted donuts as snacks and signed his name on another. Another live scene within the live scene, we discuss the ruins of control. The room can be traversed and could have been practical to learn the art of storm avoidance.
