Friday, October 2nd and Saturday October 3rd, 2015 - 9 am - 5pm
On October 3, 2015 from 9 am - 5 pm Sandrine Schaefer will perform Wait/ Weight in the revolving doors leading to the Urban Room.
Revolving doors, like all doors, serve as conduits between the inside and outside world. The revolving door differs however, in that it allows simultaneous entry or exit that only functions when collaboratively activated through an unspoken agreement between strangers. This agreement requires one to balance their own physicality in relation to the door and to the others inhabiting it. It is a space for both giving weight and waiting. If the agreement is broken—if care isn’t taken—the encounter can produce undesired results. Despite the revolving door’s governor, one might find themselves rushing in the wake of someone else’s frantic pace, or on the contrary, doing all of the pushing on their own. The result of all of this is an intimate exchange that manifests between strangers within the public realm. In Wait / Weight, Sandrine will create looping actions within the space of a revolving door that respond to individuals passing through the Urban Room
