Performance: What Remains
What Remains is a performance by choreographer Peter Kyle, to mark the closing of Cold Love, an exhibit by Jaanika Peerna, at Real Art Ways. The work invites audiences to consider how the things we see and do and touch and feel now, in this moment, change as they become memory. Performers Raechel Manga and Taylor Zappone act and react with one another while exploring the gestural marks and impressions in Peerna’s installation. The performance lasts around 30 minutes.

What Remains Statement:
There’s space, there’s form, there’s energy. There’s touch, there’s thought, there’s gravity. There’s desire, there’s impulse, there’s breath. The body is here and then gone. The things we do are temporary, malleable, and yet they linger in what each other experiences. This joyous transfer, this constancy of motion, persists in and through us all.
