The Six Foot Platform: Spaces Between – Holly Heidt
The Six Foot Platform: An experimental residency program presenting work by Brooklyn-based artists on a 6×6 platform at the intersection of Washington and Water Streets. Saturdays from 12-9pm. Presented by the Dumbo Improvement District in Partnership with Brooklyn Arts Council.
What exists in the space between us? Five women mark time and space through a precise schedule of movement experiments lasting 9 hours. What they do will repeat from hour to hour as the sun moves across the sky, descends, and sets. Various people will enter and exit the intersection, bringing with them their thoughts, feelings, desires, and personalities. How does the shifting environment around and within the movers, affect each hourly repetition? Let’s witness this constant feedback loop between ourselves and what surrounds us. Where do we stop and where does the rest of the world begin?
By Holly Heidt in collaboration with the other four performers: Chloe Benitez, Alexandra Carter, Nicole Fuentes, and Tamara Leigh.
