Additional Performance
Saturday, November 19 from 1-5pm

The performance is on a 30 minute loop so you may arrive and depart whenever you like.

Susan Marshall & Company will perform the world premiere of Two Person Operating System, an activation of a new sculpture by Martha Friedman, featured in the 2016 Fall Great Hall Exhibition Some Hags learn more. The dancers pay careful attention to speed, force, and precision, while navigating dangerously sharp edges in Friedman’s creation. The sculpture and dance grew out of a collaborative concept developed by Friedman and Marshall, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

After the premiere performance on November 16, Friedman and Marshall will hold an open conversation with Dr. Brooke Holmes, Professor of Classics at Princeton University, and Dr. Tina Campt, Professor of Africana and Women’s Gender and Studies at Barnard College.
