Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, 2018


Found Installations is a video art collection of Leralee Whittle’s time-based processes in rural and city spaces transformed through her collaboration with the spaces. Videos will portray Whittle occupying public and private domaines such as parks, gyms, natural habitats or unique buildings. The visually rich spaces typically serve communities for non-arts related activities, yet inspire Leralee to engage in body-based practices anywhere from hours to months (intermittently). The artist illuminate’s the choreographic design of each generative process with postproduction editing to clearly define aesthetics of social practice, dance or visual art.

Leralee Whittle will enact an hour-long durational performance in which she occupies Broadway and “embody the space.” Whittle will occupy the stage amidst installed videos to investigate materiality in dance, minimalist body-based installation performance and new dance emerging through choreographic structures and interaction with video, things and people in the space. Leralee will be collaborating with Paul Sprawl, a guest composer/musician for the evening.

The performance will take place on Friday night of November 9, 2018 at Charlotte Street Foundation’s new performance arts venue, Capsule (1664 Broadway Blvd, KCMO). Ticket information will be available soon.

Workshop Opportunity

The following day on Saturday, November 10, 2018, Leralee Whittle will lead a workshop for interested attendees. The workshop will be free and open to the public.

Part 1:  We’re Space Makers / J(())Y Embodiment  11-12:30
Part 2:  Instant Composition, a relational art ritual – 12:35- 2:00
In this workshop we’ll explore a cross-disciplinary approach of inviting your/our authentic dance in the creation of embodied installations (being and designing with the body and things) and
creative collaboration. We’ll explore how materiality between the body, space, time, object and other unfolds a time-based process that opens up aesthetic communing/community. We’ll step into composition as a ritual mode that heightens ours senses and gives us the experience of phenomena as the engine of collaboration (relational aesthetics) each moment.
