"You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore?" Zach Braff from 10 years ago would appreciate this performance art installation inspired by the impermanent idea of home. Visiting dancers Dahlia Nayar and Margaret Sunghe Paek and cellist Loren Kiyoshi Dempster collaborate for this work, which has dancers standing on their heads and hanging socks over a clothesline with their feet, to a score of what sounds like the swatting of loose guitar strings. The mundane tasks are meant to evoke nostalgia, as well as a sense that though they're mundane, the tasks are somewhat wondrous, like fragmented memories of lullabies from childhood.
