“Solace” exhibition when the very talented Kiera Bono and Angelina Marriott performed. Bono and Marriott have been collaborating on improvisational structures and choreographic processes since 2010. In the summer of 2014, they started an ongoing project with Laura Farrell called “pillow dances,” which aims to create space for collective survival through mental/physical illness, the effects of capitalist labor on our bodies and minds, and our varying distances from family and heritage. One of their main goals with this piece is to make dance that feels like cooking or companion planting. It is a living document and an invitation for everyone to cultivate their on “pillow dances” on a regular basis.
