Apparatus of Repair

June 9, 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

APPARATUS OF REPAIR is the culmination of THE DECARCERATION TRILOGY, an ambitious series of site-specific aerial dance and public art events addressing the devastating effects of mass incarceration in the United States. Apparatus of Repair transforms the intimate healing process of restorative justice into a public performance, danced in the air and on the vertical surfaces of buildings.

With a cast of five female dancers, Apparatus of Repair engages ideas of restorative justice as an alternative to the prison system. The work is grounded in the lived experiences of survivors of violent assault as well as the perpetrators of that violence. Many of the participating artists consented to bring their own deeply personal experiences to the project as survivors.

This apparatus-based dance will be performed outdoors on the exterior facade of the Overland Warehouse (209 NW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97209) by the corner of NW 4th Avenue and NW Everett Street in Portland, OR. Tickets for chair seating start at $25 for students/seniors/artists, $35 for adults, and $50 for supporters. Standing room/bring your own chair is Pay What You Can. Oregon Trail cardholders, please email info@boomarts.org for Arts for All pricing.
