Installation and Performance are both transformative forms of contemporary art. They can move their audience by inviting interaction or allowing them to feel a part of the work. By combining these two practices, a theatrical experience is created that moves the viewers and invites them to question the nature of their surroundings. 

Rachel Debuque constructs large-scale, colorful installations that are completed by a performance element. She is interested in the ambiguity of space, home, and human connection. Her installations transform space with painted walls that blend with symbolic objects. Objects and floors become paintings and walls become furniture. The performance aspect both alienates and invites the viewer into the piece. It serves to give the installation life and a residual emotion.  

Dana Peter's interest in performance comes from its inextricable link to the human form and movement. She adorns figures with cut paper wearable sculptures that take on a new life. Her background as a print maker guides her material and design decisions. Her manipulation of objects and performers take on a new existence that is bright, spiritual and other-worldly.

In 2012, Peters and Debuque combined interests in the collaboration Candied Calamari. The piece came from a shared interest in performance, color, costume and pattern. Peters and Debuque envision using the SOIL space as a medium for a collaborative installation/ performance event. The opening night would serve as the performance that will complete the space. The space will consist of patterns that will meld onto the floor, wall, and objects. There will be two actresses that also mimic the installation in costume. They will be engaging in ritualistic behavior that acts to transform the installation space. An audio component will be used as their cue to repeat actions and add elements to the installation. This will last for one hour. Having completed the space, the actresses will walk off. The installation will remain in its completed form for the remainder of the show.

Candied Calamari is asking for support in travel, materials, and actress compensation. Your support of their artistic vision is greatly appreciated.

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge for the completion of "Mistiko," is funding. We are asking for the assistance in travel to and from Seattle, materials, and compensation for our actresses. We see the success of this project leading to grants and residencies that will support our respective creative and professional goals as well as the growth of our collaboration, Candied Calamari Projects.
