reaching over a brink of darkness, folding open to a starlight trepanation

Ibrida*Pluri III, Eastern Bloc, Montréal, Québec, April 27-28, 2017

In her absence, Lucy entrusted a performance of dance notations to two artists, Paige Culley and Andrew Tay for Ibrida*Pluri III, festival of hybrid media in Montreal, Québec.

As a kind of temporal Cubism, they reanimated drawings of dances Lucy made and felt while in residence in her natal province of New Brunswick between fall 2016 and spring 2017. The multiplicity of limbs is a rough animation, recalling prehistoric drawings made in France’s Chauvet Cave. Past and present enfold each other in the reading of drawings, as if the motions previously made were still reverberating; as if the body who traced them were just there, moments ago, with you in the room.

The public was invited play around.
