MFA candidate mounts a performance

By From page A11 | April 08, 2014

Deirdre Morris, a candidate for a master of fine arts degree in theater and dance at UC Davis, has created a site-particular performance on and around Lake Spafford in the UCD Arboretum. “Site particular” refers to a direct engagement with the landscape being worked in and through the time and place of the structured presentation.

Encompassing suspension, surveillance and sustainability practices through the medium of visual, textual and corporeal engagements, on stilts, on film, on land and on water, “We Do Not Live in Splendid Isolation” asks, “What is a right relationship to place?”

She will perform at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday in Room 120 at Wright Hall, then move to Lake Spafford.

Admission is free.
