role: dance curator

APOSTROPHE was a monthly series hosted at gallery 1412 that presented three artistic genres in one hour. Without theme or intermission, a dancer, musician and poet perform, posing questions about the compositional frame (page, body, breath, instrument, floor, room) and how it reshapes imagination and space. Co-presented by gallery 1412 and Seattle Improvised Music and curated by Michèle Steinwald (dance), Gust Burns (music), and Melanie Noel (poetry).

“During the performance, the room was so quiet that the audience could hear the smallest sounds, breath, a foot scraping against a carpeted floor. Disquieting and delightful.”—C.E. Putnam, The Poetry Project Newsletter
