Pieces will include:

The Chair, the Table
Dealing with how objects, people, and space inform and control one another, the project focuses on how an object can be made uncanny via its theatricalized setting. Even the most mundane object bears witness to an event. As objects of ritual, they may hold cherished memories or sacred lore. Broken, misused, overused, ritualized or multiplied, objects can determine the nature of a space or the character of their users.
Emma Stirling, Yates Norton, Cameron Foote with artwork by Tom Laprade and Aaron Lehman.

Runaround
This piece will explore issues of violence and alienation as a result of society’s taboos against female physicality. How and why do we destroy our own bodies, and what occurs at the breaking point? The artist will create a multitudinous self to present before the audience through a combination of audio and visual elements, which will be manifested and destroyed before the audience.
Carina Finn

Death is a Salesman
A woman confronts a used car salesman about faulty breaks on a car she purchased, then ends up discussing matters of life, death, and redemption, before finally partaking in a high-stakes game of scrabble.
Linda Wu

Ech0
A kiosk for temporal meditation and reflection. Modern science and modern thought (the Renaissance invention of perspective; Copernicus, Newton, Einstein) sought to demystify and explain physical space, leaving no place more special than any other; ech0 seeks to combine the notions of non-place (i.e. Internet) and locale (i.e. church) that relays transcendental experience and spirit while breaking conventional iconography.
Daniel Levya

Host
A sound piece relating to the diverse history of the church’s inhabitants. A new denomination assumes ownership not so much adopting the presence of the previous tenants as they make their own mark, but unable to remove the past’s impact completely. A residue like ghosts exists in the space, and my sounds will be representative of that airiness; phasing in, phasing out.
Adam Stoves

Patient Saint
SAINT GENEVIEVE EXCLUSIVE APPEARANCE. In his penultimate demonstration, Dr. Charcot’s prize patient and celebrity hysteric displays the wrong symptoms.
Tamara del Rosso, Samantha Beach, Ethan Dubin, and Kyle Bales

The Body
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” -Genesis 1:27
This live interactive collage work explores the modern individual’s understanding of God as both human in image and as a ubiquitous spirit celebrated through religious ritual.
Jessie Lamprecht

Eulogy
We grieve alongside 7 Widows while a fallen poet mourns a life of unrealized love.
Shayfer James and Group

PFDxVCO
This piece examines the interplay of visual language and sound through the shifting (and often clashing) cultural elements St. Paul’s Lutheran has exhibited throughout its history.
Freddie Wyss

Solo/Choral
A musical oasis in this artistic environment.
Eric Holm

I Swear to God: Eleven Monologues
A collection of modern musings told from the perspectives of young, lost Americans What better setting than a church to host the queries and complaints of god’s children?
Giulianna Reiley and the Skeleton Key Cooperative

Lodestar
An exploration of path, and what people may choose to believe in to guide them.
Anneli Strassler

Voices
An experimental sound performance in reverence of the cultures and stories that have passed through the church over the years.
Nia Nottage + Victoria B. Wikler

Prayer
A pastor’s prayers are interrupted by a soldier on a mission.
Eric Fallen

Portrait of the Artist as a Sinner
Kneeling in confession: this work walks the narrow line of sinful and sacrilegious.
Danielle Lanzet

TRANSFERnation
In “TRANSFERnation” questions of discovery, evolution, tradition, and transformation suggest ideas of what may have happened in the days of early colonialism.
Borders are crossed and the elements of these dichotomies are dissolved between cultures and traditions.
The Myoho Sisters (Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow & Maria Fernanda Hubeaut)

Ceremony

“Liminality, marginality, and structural inferiority are conditions in which are frequently generated myths, symbols, rituals, philosophical systems, and works of art. These cultural forms provide men with a set of templates or models which are, at one level, periodical reclassifications of reality and man’s relationship to society, nature, and culture. But they are more than classifications, since they incite men to action as well as to thought. Each of these productions has a multivocal character, having many meanings, and each is capable of moving people at many psychobiological levels simultaneously.”-Victor Turner

Sorine Anderson

Hymn Void

Multimedia Sound/Art installation incorporating hymnal reverberations set within a surreal natural environment.
Rebecca Doerfer and Kaley Dickinson

Cleansing Concordia
An interactive ritual cleansing with volunteers from the audience where the participants will talk, recite an agreement together as they wash their hands of the dominant powers that be and reclaim their individualism.

Gabriel Don

The Stoic
The Stoic is a cloaked, seated figure with a head made entirely of stained glass. Rays of light from its head trace Stoic quotations along the walls. Stoicism is an oft-cited influence on St. Paul’s writings, and the stained glass recalls Stoicism’s partial absorption into Christian thought.
Matt Posey

One Language/Not Mine
A media installation exploring the origins of language, and the promiscuity crucial for its evolution.
Rishi Chatrath

Horse Feet
The idea of the horse as a holy vehicle of transport: a metaphor of permanence.
Niina Pollari

Whoso Walketh Wisely
“He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool, but whoso walketh wisely, he shall delivered.”
After facing expulsion from private school for starting up a coven-brothel, spirited Alice arrives on at the dusty doorstep of unsuspecting Frank with a backpack full of raw beef, desperately in need of an oven. Propelled by the illusion that they will soon part ways forever, these unlikely companions expose colors of each other long kept in the dark. But are they truly strangers? Or have they collided many times before?
Laura Heckel

Celebration of the Divine Feminine
A live Goddess installation.
Garon Peterson

Cloister
The concepts of solitude, loneliness and the afterlife: how do we come to terms with these disconcerting ideas.
Collin Frazier

Alive in Our Paint
Three performers will display themselves on the inner walls of the church. Exploring the awe inspiring presence of history in the space as well as the positive energy in the present.
Meli Sanfiorenzo and Paige Teamey

Every Time I Break the 7th Commandment, An Angel Gets a Hard On
A visual exploration of the ideology behind one of the 10 commandment’s most disputed and argued over tenets, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.” The point is to place the spectator at odds with his/her own sexuality and the fear of judgement. An investigation into the heart of desire, the sin of lust, and the castigation that follows.
Sebastian Pinaud

As well as VISUAL ART WORK from Ursula Mur, Satoshi Okada, Terry Huber, Mohanee Alingasa Ramchandani’s ‘Visions of Meditative Practice,’ Michal Verred Ammar’s ‘Inner Rooms.’
