An inhabited wall created for a dance performance by Solomons
Co./Dance. The wall cuts the scene in two; one half of the audience
on each side of the stage. The dancers occupy both sides of the
stage as well as the wall, thus allowing either a partial or altered
view of the dance. Each module of the wall is treated as a scaffold
from which elements, such as spandex, neoprene, plexiglas and
scrim, are hung, either to distort, hide or filter the view of
the dancers, to create a threshold or a transformable room.
Between 1988 an 1990, Beth
Weinstein, Francisco de Almeida, Scott DeVere + Zainie Zainul
collaborated on several installations, under the name a(d+V) u2z.
