AUTO is a movement installation that takes place in and around a moving vehicle by Kate Watson Wallace/anonymous bodies.

AUTO is a movement installation that takes place in and around a moving vehicle. Using the landscape of a parking garage, audience members move and are moved through a series of performance vignettes that inhabit the private and public space that is a car. AUTO investigates the body of performer/driver, the body of witness/passenger, and the body of the car itself. AUTO explores how we communicate when we are encased in a small piece of metal that can speed, stop, lock us in, blow us up, or crash at any moment. AUTO is a performance that takes place inside a parking garage. Audience members will be asked to walk throughout the garage during the performance. AUTO is the partner piece to CAR, the sold-out 2008 Live Arts hit.

DONATE ON KICKSTARTER!

We are self-producing this show, so if you want to make an extra contribution, that would rock!

If you have an extra $25 (or what ever you can do...) that you can contribute, we would appreciate it. It is really important to me to keep employing dancers, even as we see things changing in our economy.
