A collaboration between SALTA and Timeless, Infinite Light on an evening of collisions / communion between dance and poetry that took place at LoBot Gallery on January 29th, 2016. We invited poets who verge on dance, dancers who verge on poetry, and people working in some indefinable way between and among the two. This evening was largely composed of durational works, in which the audience could come, go, and move around as they wished. Throughout the event, a crew of local poets were transcribing / translating the performances into language to be displayed on one of the gallery walls. There was a dance party to cap the vibes.
What follows is some documentation from the event. It will be almost like you were there. Here's a PDF of the SALTA is Timeless, Infinite Light zine we made for the event to help you find your way.
