Interdisciplinary Arts Collective is proud to present a John Cage-style Musicircus of music, dance, poetry, and visual art. a wall for the body, a circle for the soul, a fruit for your memory premieres June 3, 4 & 5 at 7:30pm at the Uintah Steel workshop in West Valley City.
Inspired by Jeanette Winterson’s novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, WALL/CIRCLE/FRUIT is a queer experiment in memory as myth-making, the scriptures we write to understand our own past, and the crossing of thresholds.
The show takes place in a steel fabrication workshop and is structured around John Cage’s Musicircus – a 1967 composition written for “any number of performers willing to perform in the same place at the same time.” The musicians, dancers, poets, actors, and artists of IAC are by turns dispersed and coalesced throughout the workshop. The audience is free to travel between the performances at will and build their own experience of the piece through their unique intersections of time, space, sight, and sound.
Interdisciplinary Arts Collective is a local collaborative performance group made up of musicians, dancers, poets, actors, and visual artists, with a focus on experimental and avant-garde art. Past performances include the Utah Arts Festival, the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival, the Westminster College Chamber Series, FluxConcerts around Salt Lake City, and a 36-hour performance of Erik Satie’s Vexations last summer.
a wall for the body, a circle for the soul, a fruit for your memory will be hosted at the Uintah Steel workshop at 1820 Printers Row, West Valley City. Admission is pay-what-you-can at the door, with all proceeds going directly towards the artists. WALL/CIRLCE/FRUIT show dates and times are June 3-5 at 7:30pm.
