Title:Patterns of Flight
Author(s):Kraker, Mauriah
Abstract:I am an improviser, maker, wanderer, walker. My practices are spatial; place walking, installation making, site specific performing. My interest is in absence, location (a search for home) regeneration and joy. I make dances where bodies never touch, horizons are never reached. I desire contradiction, the creation of situations that cannot or will not want to be solved. Processes full of perhapses, despites, glories, and not quites. I search for home in the work, but more often find leaving or not quite arriving. Between June to December 2017, I walk a 5-mile radius around Urbana, Illinois, capturing bits of movement as I walk. Here, I find myself near the Embarras River, a tributary of the Wabash River. I arrive to this location by following the flight pattern of the crows through the cornfields. Stepping onto the empty field, dry and cut, the dark earth revealed for one sunny December morning, I quickly capture a bit of movement, before the snow arrives. The dance, Patterns of Flight, will be performed live, at the same location, summer 2018.
